Address web applications and API vulnerabilities

The security of web applications is of paramount importance to business continuity and integrity. While traditional firewalls and other security controls are an important security layer, they cannot defend you from or alert you to many of the attack vectors specific to web applications.

This Web Application and API Penetration Test uses a mix of advanced manual testing techniques and automated scans to simulate real-world attacks to identify risks within your web applications.

It will assess:

  • Authentication
  • Authorization
  • Session management
  • Input validation and sanitization
  • Server configuration
  • Encryption
  • Information leakage
  • Application workflow
  • Application logic

This test will be performed using IT Governance’s proprietary security testing methodology, which is closely aligned with the SANS, OSSTMM (Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual), and OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) methodologies.

Who is this service for?

This service is suitable for organizations that have public-facing infrastructure such as remote access solutions, servers, networking equipment, etc.

A single web application will be tested from an unauthenticated perspective. The web application must only have basic dynamic functionality, such as contact us forms, search fields, and login pages. If a web application firewall is enabled, then whitelisting will need to be implemented.

For multiple web applications, authenticated testing, or more complex functionality, please contact us for a custom quote.
