Application Security Assessments
Attacks focused on exploiting vulnerabilities and design flaws that frequently plague many of today's web based or in-house applications are growing exponentially. When organizations fail to test for and address these issues, they often fall victim to costly compromises. Although many organizations do an excellent job of securing their perimeter networks and systems from attack by using restrictive firewalls and sophisticated intrusion detection and prevention systems, little is still being done to ensure that their applications are secure.
Organizations typically have hundreds of in-house and externally developed applications. Our application and database assessment services focus upon the compiled and installed elements of the entire system and discovery of application layer vulnerabilities. We also verify high risk vulnerabilities while providing detailed reporting of prioritized vulnerabilities, causes and remediation steps.
Application Penetration Testing
An Application Penetration Test is an attack simulation that is intended to expose the effectiveness of an application's security controls by highlighting risks posed by actual exploitable vulnerabilities. This process is intended to go much further than the generic responses, false positive findings and lack of depth provided by automated application assessment tools. The tools used by our application testing teams are more rigorous and require highly specialized staff with specific application development skills. Unlike network penetration testing, application level penetration testing requires a limited set of user credentials. Application penetration testing can be conducted remotely or onsite depending on the user’s credentials.
Top Vulnerabilities Addressed by BEW Global Application Penetration Testing:
Using our methodology, BEW Global is able to demonstrate actual exploitable vulnerabilities within an application. At the conclusion of our testing, a findings report is provided which includes a detailed description of each issue, an associated severity rating, an exploitability risk rating and one or more practical recommendations for addressing the issues throughout the System Design Life Cycle.
