Web Application Testing

Your primary web application is one of your most prized assets. A web application penetration test is the best way to ensure your applications are secure from attackers that look to exploit apps to gain access to customer accounts or your sensitive data.

The basics

What is Web Application Penetration Testing?

Web application penetration testing is a simulated security test that is designed to uncover any weaknesses in a businesses web application Pentesting will help you to identify vulnerabilities which could be exploited to;

  • Gain access to user accounts
  • Compromise application data
  • Cause reputational damage
  • Damage the web application

All of which can have a huge impact on the web application, your customers and your company itself.

Our CREST-accredited testers use a combination of manual techniques and automated tools in application pentesting, which are used to identify vulnerabilities that real-life attacks are exploiting for financial gain.

Testing Benfits

What are the benefits of Web Application Pentesting?

Web Application Pentesting simply finds the vulnerabilities before attackers do so that they can be rectified and provide you with the knowledge that your application is safe. If you had a vulnerability on your application right now which could be exploited, would you want to know?

By utilising web application penetration testing in your cyber-security programme, you can save valuable time, money and potential reputational damage.

Our CREST accredited web application testers use a combination of manual and automated techniques to uncover the vulnerabilities automated solutions simply can’t find.

Manual Not Automated

What will we find in a Web Application Penetration Test?

There are some common vulnerabilities that we often come across in a test, such as SQL injection, Cross-Site Scripting and Cross-Site Request Forgery, to name but a few. However, the OnSecurity testing team looks for the full range of vulnerabilities to ensure you gain complete coverage and get the best value for money.

We will also search for a range of business logic and permissions issues, to ensure that the app behaves as it should, even when used in unexpected ways. These issues can only be identified by a human who really understands how your application should work, and therefore how they can break it.

OnSecurity uses recognised attack classification such as OWASP, CWE and MITRE CAPEC to identify and classify vulnerabilities.

We don’t just consider the larger threats to the business. Instead, we look at all application vulnerabilities, no matter how small, as the smaller vulnerabilities can often be combined or chained together to devastating effect.

CREST Registered - CREST Certified

Are you CREST Certified?

OnSecurity is a CREST (Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers) approved vendor. This means that all our test methodologies, processes, policies and procedures have been externally vetted by CREST to ensure we are operating to the highest standards possible in the pentesting industry.

On top of this the majority of our testers are CREST certified, meaning they have been through a CREST assault course (or CREST-recognised equivalent) to ensure they have the requisite skills needed to find and exploit vulnerabilities in a safe and controlled manner.

This external validation means you can be confident your pentests are being carried out to the highest standard, by vetted and tested consultants, who use a best-in-class manual-first approach to testing.
