Web Application Penetration Test

What is a Web Application Penetration Test?

A web application such as corporate website is the public face of an organisation. Unfortunately, it is also the most targeted by attackers.
Our Web Application Penetration Test is an in-depth analysis of target web applications to find vulnerabilities related to programming errors, misconfigurations, and application architectural issues.

We perform a series of in-depth authenticated, unauthenticated, automated and manual runtime analysis of the application. Additionally, we explore the target application for vulnerabilities that cannot be found by automated means, such as business logic flaws. For will develop custom test cases to probe the application and find the faults before the bad guys do.

All of our web application security testing is benchmarked against the industry-recognised Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Application Security Verification Standard.

Did You Know?

  • Web applications are the intial target in 86% of security breaches.

  • 1 in 5 web application vulerabilities are considered to be of high severity

  • Out of 338 cases with confirmed breach data, 11.8 billion records were compromised. That's an average of almost 35 million records per breach!

  • Attacks on company web applications increased by 52% in 2019, with most attackers targeting financial and personally identifiable information.

  • In 2019, 16% of successful attacks resulted in full control of the underlying system hosting the application, with half allowing further attacks on the internal corporate network.

Why Choose Aurian?

Having your web applications exposed to the world gives employees the flexibility and mobility to work remotely, but a the cost of allowing an attacker to compromise them from anywhere in the world.

Our Web Application Penetration Tests help identify weaknesses in your application development and deployment, and provide benefits including:

  • Verifying that sensitive information store in your application databases is not vulnerable to theft and is stored in a secure manner
  • Discovering vulnerabilities in off-the-shelf content management systems and frameworks
  • Ensuring that your application is using strong authentication and session management controls
  • Determining the access paths an attacker can follow if they gain access to your web application
  • Discovering business logic flaws that could lead to the theft of sensitive data
