What is web application penetration testing?
Due to the ubiquity of web applications, they are a preferred target for cyber criminals.
Web application penetration testing is a proactive approach to cyber security. It simulates the actions of a hacker and critically assesses and exploits security vulnerabilities, weaknesses, technical misconfigurations that a cyber attacker would target in your website’s API and infrastructure. Penetration tests allow you to act immediately, removing vulnerabilities whilst your business remains operational.
Our web pen testing experts will identify the risks posed to your business, and crucially, develop a comprehensive plan to strengthen your cyber resilience.
Benefits of web app penetration testing
Bulletproof’s trusted CREST-certified penetration testers will carefully analyse all aspects of your web app to uncover security weaknesses. Every test is designed to protect what matters most to your business.
- Expose vulnerabilities and poor security controls
- Expose web application security flaws
- Expose insecure functionality in your app
- Expose security design issues
Types of web pen tests
Analyse the security of your web app from the user perspective. Auditing the admin portal of your web application will reveal vulnerabilities including SQL injection, Session fixation, privilege escalation and Cross-Site request forgery (CSRF).
The most common type of web application test, our penetration testers will identify vulnerabilities in publicly visible networks that could be exploited by users who do not have access credentials.
A vital component to include if your web application has an API. Penetration testing a web app’s API uses slightly different tools, and techniques. It is often covered separately from the scope of a web app test.
Bulletproof recommends a blend of all three testing types to get the most value from your penetration testing engagement and understand all the risks.
