Web and Mobile Application Security Services

Web application security testing is a process that verifies that the information system protects the data and maintains its intended functionality. It involves an active analysis of the application for any weaknesses, technical flaws, or vulnerabilities.  The primary purpose is to identify the vulnerabilities, and subsequently repairs them. The six basic security concepts are:

  • Confidentiality – Information should be accessible to only those with authorized access
  • Integrity – A measure intended to allow the receiver to determine that the information which it is providing is correct
  • Authentication – Establishes the identity of the user
  • Authorization – User should receive a service or perform an action for which he has permission
  • Availability – Information and communication services should be ready any time, as needed
  • Non-repudiation – Prevent later denial that an action happened

How does application security testing reduce your organization’s risk?

Attack Results

  • Access to restricted content
  • Compromised user accounts
  • Installation of malicious code
  • Lost sales revenue
  • Loss of trust with customers
  • Damaged brand reputation
  • And much more
  • Majority of Web Application Attacks

  • SQL Injection
  • XSS (Cross Site Scripting)
  • Remote Command Execution
  • Path Traversal
  • Our Secure Code Review Process

    Automated Code Review
    Detects low-hanging fruits and hundreds of other vulnerabilities, including SQL injection and Cross-Site Scripting
    Ability to test quickly and in large chunks of code is crucial in agile and continuous integration environments
    Ability to be scheduled and run on-demand
    Ability to add non-security checks including business logic
    Ability to scale automated testing as per organizational need

    Manual Code Review

    Ability to deep dive into the code paths to check for logical errors and flaws in the design and architecture most automated tools couldn’t find Security issues like authorization, authentication and data validation can be better detected manually compared to some automated tools

    Static code analysis

    Also referred to as Static Application Security Testing (SAST) – this type of analysis examines the code in a non-run time environment (without executing any of the code) to identify security issues in the code itself, such as SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting.

    Dynamic Code Analysis

    Also referred to as Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) – this type of testing examines code in a runtime environment to identify issues in the code’s configuration and interaction with other system components like SQL databases and APIs.

    Penetration Testing

    This manual application security test is best for critical applications, especially those undergoing major changes. The assessment involves business logic and adversary-based testing to discover advanced attack scenarios.
