Web Application Penetration Test

Web Application Penetration Test Overview


Scoping & Planning

Tailored planning to align with your specific security goals, ensuring a focused and effective penetration testing process.


Comprehensive Testing

Utilising advanced automated and manual testing methods to uncover a wide range of potential vulnerabilities.


Risk Assessment & Prioritisation

Critical analysis of identified vulnerabilities, ranked by severity and impact, for informed and strategic remediation efforts.


Detailed Remediation Guidance

Providing actionable steps and expert advice for addressing identified vulnerabilities, ensuring practical and effective security enhancements.

Web Application Penetration Test

The aim of a web application penetration test is to identify and safely exploit weaknesses in the web application. We seek to uncover common vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection, XSS, Broken Authentication, Security Misconfigurations and more. Our report and remediation advice help you close the gaps before they are seriously exploited by attackers.

Understanding Web Application Penetration Tests

A Web Application Penetration Test identifies and helps mitigate vulnerabilities in web applications, enhancing security, ensuring compliance with regulatory standards, and protecting against potential cyberattacks. This proactive approach safeguards sensitive data, maintains customer trust, and prevents costly breaches.

Any business with a web presence, especially those handling sensitive data like financial institutions, healthcare providers, e-commerce sites, and government agencies. Regular testing is crucial for businesses seeking to protect their digital assets and comply with security regulations.

The time frame varies depending on the application’s complexity, size, and the test’s scope. Typically, it takes around 5 days. However, extremely large Web Applications could take several weeks. A thorough test includes planning, execution, and reporting phases.

Common critical vulnerabilities include SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), broken authentication, security misconfigurations, and exposed sensitive data. These vulnerabilities can be exploited to gain unauthorised access or compromise web application data.

The OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) Framework is a comprehensive guide focused on improving the security of software. It’s a community-driven project that provides open-source methodologies, tools, and resources to help organizations identify and address security vulnerabilities in web applications. Key components include the OWASP Top Ten, a list of the most critical web application security risks, and a range of best practice guidelines and educational resources. Widely respected in the industry, the OWASP framework serves as a flexible, adaptable standard for developing, purchasing, and maintaining secure software, helping organisations manage risks and enhance their overall security posture.

If a web application is compromised, it can have serious consequences, such as data breaches, loss of sensitive or personal information, financial loss, legal consequences, and damage to the organisation’s reputation. Commonly, cyber attacks disrupt business operations and erode customer trust.
