Web Application Penetration Testing

Overview Of Web Application Penetration Testing

Comprehensive web application penetration testing performed by experienced and certified penetration testers.

Whether your applications have been developed bespoke by you or commissioned through a third-party provider, lack of time and a lack of awareness around industry best practice can often result in an application that puts your sensitive information and mission systems at risk. At Hacktive, we can provide a comprehensive security assessment of your application deployment. Our testers, using international recognised methodologies, will assess all the critical components of your application and infrastructure. We focus on how your application components are deployed and communicate with both the end user and server environments.

The main focus of a web app pen test is to identify exploitable vulnerabilities in applications before the attackers can discover and exploit them. Web app pen testing will reveal real-world opportunities for attackers to be able to compromise apps in such a way that allows for unauthorised access to your organisations’ mission-critical data or even take-over systems for malicious purposes.

As a result of our app pen tests, you’ll be able to view your apps through the eyes of both an attacker and a developer to discover where you can improve your security control. Our testers produce findings in a comprehensive, easy to understand report and provide your team with the guidance necessary to effectively remediate any issues we may find.

What Is API Penetration Testing? 

Application Programming Interface (API) penetration testing focuses on the security of APIs that your business exposes externally.  An API pen test simulates an attack on the application’s APIs, It helps determine if there are any security flaws present in the environment and helps you to understand the level of technical risk. A thorough API pen test will also provide the necessary support to help address and fix any application security flaws.
