Web Application Penetration Testing

A web application penetration test will assess your application’s security and discover weaknesses that could be exploited by an attacker or otherwise negatively impact your organization.

What Happens During a Web Application Penetration Test?

Using a combination of manual testing and automated tools, we identify vulnerabilities and demonstrate their real-world impact by exploiting your applications before attackers do. This type of testing is paramount to maintaining a strong security posture and establishing trust with your customers.

A Web App Penetration Test Can Help You:

Identify Vulnerabilities

Penetration testers assume the role of an unauthenticated user or an authenticated, but untrusted user—or perhaps both—and attempt to gain unauthorized access or use the application in unintended ways.

Improve Security

By identifying and remediating these discovered vulnerabilities, you would improve your application security and reduce the risk of a real-world attacker exploiting them first.

Meet Compliance Requirements

Different industries have specific regulatory compliance requirements which may include penetration testing. Depending on the framework(s) your organization is attempting to comply with, an application penetration test may be mandatory.

Demonstrate Due Diligence

Conducting regular penetration tests can demonstrate to customers, partners, and other stakeholders, that you take security seriously and are taking consistent steps to protect data.

Schellman’s Web Application Testing Methodology

At Schellman, we use the OWASP Web Security Testing Guide in our web application testing. In order for us understand the specific risks for each particular application, much of our testing is done manually while conducting vulnerability scanning so that we can review how an application responds to traffic submitted in unintended ways.
