What is Web Application Penetration Testing?

Web application penetration testing is an assessment designed to identify and address vulnerabilities in Web applications that could be exploited by hackers. With millions of users relying on Web applications every day to manage their most sensitive information, many companies now integrate Web application penetration tests as an integral part of their development cycle to protect their users’ sensitive information.

Our Web Application Penetration Testing Services

Following a proven methodology based on the OWASP standard, our Web application penetration testing services identify the most common vulnerabilities and even the most subtle business logic flaws.

Manual vs. Automated Web Application PenetrationTesting

Most professionals in the industry agree that application risks cannot be sufficiently mitigated by relying on automated testing solutions. While it can be a great starting point for organizations that lack the budget to undergo frequent manual testing of their application, it should never be your only resort to test your application’s security. Here are examples of high/critical vulnerabilities that can only be identified through manual testing:

logic flaws

management flaws

The cost of a penetration test varies significantly according to a number of factors. The most determining factor is the size and complexity of the testing scope (such as the number/types of features or user roles). Contact sales to get a quote or read our blog post to learn more.

Average projects take between 2-3 weeks from start to finish.

We are flexible and usually can adapt to your deadlines.

Contact us to discuss planning and schedule.

Yes. At the end of the project, we offer a free retest of the identified vulnerabilities to validate your corrective measures.

Once this is done, we provide an attestation letter that allows your organization to easily comply with various third-party requirements (SOC 2, PCI-DSS, ISO27001, GDPR, etc.)

Web application penetration testing is a specialized form of security testing that focuses on identifying vulnerabilities in web applications: from it’s hosting, database, software and programming language used, to each action that can be taken on the application.

Unlike other types of security testing, web application penetration testing takes into account the unique architecture and design of web applications in order to more effectively identify potential security risks. Additionally, web application penetration testing often employs both automated and manual testing techniques in order to accurately contextualize findings and provide actionable recommendations tailored to the features present in the app.

The security of web applications can be tested through a variety of methods, including manual and automated testing techniques. Manual testing techniques involve manually inspecting the code and architecture of an application in order to identify potential security risks in the way each action is handled. Automated testing techniques make use of specialized software to automatically scan an application for known vulnerabilities.

However, automated testing alone is insufficient for identifying all potential security risks present in an application, because they are often complex and unique, making it impossible for automated scanners to accurately identify all potential vulnerabilities. For this reason, our testers leverage a combination of both manual and automated testing techniques to assess the security of web applications
