What is Web Application Penetration Testing

Web application penetration testing involves testing the security integrity of a company's browser-based applications. RedTeam Security evaluates the attack surface of all potentially vulnerable web-based services, including APIs and web interfaces. We execute the same steps malicious attackers might perform to penetrate the security and gain access to protected information or enter a company's internal systems. 

You may be a business that specializes in creating web applications for use by other organizations. They must have full confidence in your application to ensure its ongoing success. Your business's failure to locate and address vulnerabilities puts your reputation and bottom line at risk. It's hard to win back trust after a security breach.

Pen testing helps confirm that a web application performs at the expected level of reliability, functionality, security, and performance. RedTeam looks for vulnerabilities identified by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). It's a community effort devoted to uncovering and reporting on the latest web application security vulnerabilities.

Web application pentesting is a specified process that uses techniques on your applications to detect any existing security risks. Web application developers often inadvertently overlook security as they focus on code development, visual design, and app management, which is completely understandable. These are all important components of a good website or mobile app. Web application penetration testing effectively fills the security gap and ensures all of your web applications are as secure as they can be.

The goal of a web application pentest is to break into a web application using penetration attacks and threats. We do this by using a combination of manual and automated penetration tests. As we test, we seek out any security flaws, threats, and vulnerabilities and highlight what they are and highlight ways any risks we identify can be eliminated.

Each and every penetration test we perform is conducted by consistently using globally accepted and industry-standard frameworks. This helps to make up our application penetration testing methodology. To ensure a sound and comprehensive application pentest, RedTeam Security leverages industry-standard frameworks as the foundation of our penetration test strategy. At a minimum, the underlying framework is based on the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) but we go beyond the initial framework itself to ensure well-rounded and deep testing takes place.

Web applications are particularly vulnerable to external attack given that they are inherently designed to be accessible to the Internet. While automated scanners check for known vulnerabilities, they are incapable of assessing real business risk. Our web application security testing helps you lower your risk of data breach, improve productivity, protect your brand, and maximize the ROI from your web applications.
