Address web application vulnerabilities

The security of web applications is of paramount importance to business continuity and integrity. While traditional firewalls and other security controls are an important security layer, they cannot defend against or alert you to many of the attack vectors specific to web applications.

This Web Application Penetration Test contains a mix of advanced manual testing techniques and automated scans to simulate real-world attacks to identify risks within your web applications.

It will assess:

  • Authentication
  • Authorisation
  • Session management
  • Input validation and sanitisation
  • Server configuration
  • Encryption
  • Information leakage
  • Application workflow
  • Application logic

This test will be performed using IT Governance’s proprietary security testing methodology, which is closely aligned with the SANS, OSSTMM (Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual) and OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) methodologies.

Who is this service for?

This service is suitable for organisations that have a public-facing web application.

A single web application will be tested from an unauthenticated perspective. The web application must only have basic dynamic functionality, such as contact us forms, search fields and login pages. If a web application firewall is enabled, then whitelisting will need to be implemented.

For multiple web applications, authenticated testing or more complex functionality, please contact us for a custom quote.

Demonstrate strength to key stakeholders

Demonstrate a strong security posture to clients by providing third-party assurances that your web applications are secure.

Safeguard your organisation

From the detailed report, you will be able to implement secure measures (such as strong authentication and session management controls, and keeping untrusted data separate from commands and queries), thereby reducing the likelihood of a security breach while protecting your brand.

Required as new pages were added to the website to host our blog page. The pre-engagement and pre-sales process was very easy and simple and the test was delivered in line with our expectations. We actually needed the outcome test report ahead of the originally agreed target date and IT Governance happily accommodated this wish with a comprehensive fast-track. I certainly consider the test costs to represent excellent value for money and can recommend IT Governance to carry out any Pen Test requirement efficiently and to a very high class standard
