Web application attacks range in size and complexity, from the exploitation of vulnerable open source components, to app-specific attacks which take advantage of user controls. Internal web applications are at risk too, from disgruntled or malicious users who may find loopholes and use their position to wreak havoc.
As well as scanning and testing your entire web-based infrastructure for any gaps, we’ll provide you with a clear step-by-step guide to help you boost your defences.

An essential part of your security strategy
If you’re a web-based business, web application testing is essential. As the capabilities of applications continue to increase, so does the scale of attacks against them.
With web application security comprising of websites and web services such as APIs, the sheer size of the attack surface can seem overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to be.
Speak with our expert team to find out how we can help you keep your business-critical web applications secure.
How we work
We determine your specific requirements before building a tailored proposal.
Our thorough testing simulates the attack methodologies of today’s most advanced hackers.
Our comprehensive reports impart clear, practical advice on how to address any weaknesses.
We offer ongoing support to guide you through the process of securing your applications.
DON’T BECOME ANOTHER VICTIM
The Equifax data breach in 2017 should have acted as a stark reminder that cyber-attacks can cause significant financial damage to an organisation.
As well as the direct costs associated with responding to a breach and securing your systems, indirect costs such as regulatory fines, legal action and reputational damage can all damage your bottom line for years to come.
Most breaches are easily avoidable, and in the case of Equifax a web application penetration test could have helped to identify the issues that lead to it being exploited.
What is tested during a web application test?
Our standard assessment leverages advanced methodology that we developed in-house and uses a combination of automated and manual testing capabilities. Although the specific scope of each test will be determined by the web applications you use and your unique requirements, every test we carry out is in-line with the OWASP Top 10 framework as a minimum.
We’ll scan for a wide range of vulnerabilities in your web applications, including:
- Cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws, which can allow attackers to extract data or perform DDoS attacks.
- SSL/TLS weaknesses, which can compromise sensitive personal information.
- Insecure deserialization, often leading to remote code execution attacks – one of the most serious attacks possible.
Will my day to day activity be disrupted?
Since our testing is carried out on a replica of your live environment, our assessments won’t have any impact on your day-to-day operations.
Should I have any other tests alongside web application testing?
In order to ensure all of your business-critical applications are working securely, and to avoid being exposed to potentially detrimental fines it’s advisable to have all web applications, mobile applications and software products thoroughly tested for any vulnerabilities.
Mobile Application Testing
86% of mobile applications have at least one vulnerability violating the OWASP Top 10. If these issues are exploited by cyber criminals or malicious users, it can have serious implications for an organisation, in terms of both cost and reputational damage.
If you develop a software product or service, are you confident that it’s as secure as it can be? Your clients rely on you to keep their data secure, so if you’ve not had your product or service independently assessed, your reputation is at risk if a vulnerability is discovered.
