Web applications are a core component for almost all companies. They are used for various reasons, and very often, capture, handle, store and transmit sensitive data (confidential business information, HR data, financial information, etc.).
The high value of the data accessed via web applications increases their value as a target, thus making regular assessments highly recommended.
Our team uses a hybrid methodology, composed of automated and manual testing, to assess external and internal web applications to identify vulnerabilities before cybercriminals do. Our assessments also include an exploitation phase, allowing our customers to better understand the risks each vulnerability poses.
Our services rely on highly skilled cyber security analysts and pen-testers with extensive experience, both in defense and offense.
Our web application penetration tests automatically include a full network test of any services running on the web server.
If your web application has an API or web service supporting access to Android and iOS mobile applications, our web app penetration test can be combined with a mobile application security assessment for a full end-to-end verification of your security posture.
Refers to testing a system without having specific knowledge of the inner workings of the information asset, no access to the source code, and no knowledge of the architecture. This approach closely mimics how an attacker typically approaches a web application at first. However, due to the lack of application knowledge, the uncovering of bugs and/or vulnerabilities can take significantly longer and may not provide a full view of the application's security posture
Refers to testing the system while having some knowledge of the target asset. This knowledge is usually constrained to the URL of the application, as well as user credentials representing different user roles. Greybox testing allows focus and prioritized efforts based on superior knowledge of the target system. This increased knowledge can result in identifying more significant vulnerabilities, while putting in much less effort. Therefore, greybox testing can be a sensible approach to better simulate advantages attackers have, versus security professionals when assessing applications. Registered testing allows the penetration tester to fully assess the web application for potential vulnerabilities. Additionally, it allows the tester to verify any weaknesses in application authorization which could result in vertical and/or horizontal privilege escalation.
Refers to testing the system while having full knowledge of the target system. At wizlynx group, our whitebox penetration test is composed of a greybox test combined with a secure code review. Such assessments will provide a full understanding of the application and its infrastructure’s security posture
All findings will be documented in a final report, and then compared with a strengths/weaknesses profile against international standards for IT & Cyber Security. The identified weaknesses will be assessed and supplemented with recommendations and remediation actions, as well as prioritized according to the risk associated. The final report will be discussed during a presentation with you. The report will include a comprehensive and meaningful C-level summary of the executed security audit or penetration test. Additionally, it will include all detailed results with respective evidence and recommendations for future security measures.
