Why to Pentest Your Web Applications?
Web applications are at the centre of most business processes, as they allow to break down geographical barriers to levels of service provided to customers, and thus expand the portfolio of services and increase revenues. To be operational, these applications use IT infrastructures exposed to web security risks. As a result, they are subject to multiple attacks including Injection attacks (SQL, Script, Command, etc.), Cross-site scripting, Authentication bypass, brute force, and privilege escalation.
Before migrating web applications in production, it’s highly recommended to conduct a penetration testing to ensure that they are not vulnerable to web threats. Penetration testing should be conducted on a regular basis because web applications are under constant attacks from criminals and new vulnerabilities are discovered every day.
What CAPTOSEC offers
We combines sophisticated and best tools, expertise and experience of our professionals to assess and validate the security of your web applications. In addition, we use the recommendations provided by OWASP Top 10 as our foundation. By doing this, we help our customers identify security holes and correct them before any attack occurs.
In order to ensure that web applications vulnerabilities are well managed, we perform a variety of activities:
+Identify and analyze vulnerabilities (manually and/or automatically)
+ Eliminate false positive generated by automated tools
+ Test and validate each vulnerability
+ Security regression test with ZAP
+ Classify vulnerabilities according to the severity level (low, medium, high)
+ Explain and demonstrate to application and system owners how each vulnerability can be exploited by hacker
+ Provide recommendations for mitigation
+ Monitor and track progress of vulnerabilities and maintain the history
Blackbox – we don’t know anything about the IT infrastructure of the target. In other word, we act like a hacker
Greybox – we know a little bit about the IT infrastructure of the target
Whitebox – we know a little more about the IT infrastructure of the target
+ Recommendations for correctives actions
+ Pentest report
+ Collected evidence
+ Detect and correct zero-day attacks
+ Improving the security of information
+ Compliance with standards, laws and regulations (ex. PCI-DSS)
