Web Application Penetration Testing

Identifying security vulnerabilities within your critical web applications.

What is Web Application Penetration Testing?

Web application penetration testing is the security assessment of a web application, website or web API by a trusted and experienced security consultant. A web application penetration test will highlight vulnerabilities within your web application that could potentially be exploited by a real world adversary. 

How Can Your Business Benefit From Web Application Penetration Testing?

Web applications are the most popular and widely used pieces of software in the modern day. They can be used to: host critical assets, advertise services or to process extremely sensitive data. As a result of their variances, they present a difficult and unique challenge to securely build and maintain.

Regular penetration testing of these web applications can help your organisation to build a deeper level of security assurance around these platforms and can help to minimise wider business risk.

Keeping Your Stakeholders Happy.

  • Security Auditors

    Almost all businesses have at least a single web application. As an absolute minimum, an information security auditor would expect this to be included within a penetration testing scope for various compliance requirements.

  • CISO / CTO / Heads of IT / IT Security Managers

    Senior management will have the security assurance that their often most public assets have been penetration tested and subsequently secured in line with security best practice. This mitigates a large portion of organisational risk.

  • Development Teams

    Development teams will benefit from a web application penetration test by learning from any mistakes that ultimately end up resulting in security vulnerabilities. This allows for more secure development processes in future products.
