Web Application Penetration Test

Identify security vulnerabilities by applying hacking techniques.

What is Web Application Penetration Testing?

Web application penetration tests are explicitly authorized attacks carried out on web applications to determine if any vulnerabilities exist which can be exploited. Penetration testers use the same tools, methods, and processes as attackers to find and demonstrate the business impacts of weaknesses in a system.

Why do we need Web Application Penetration Testing?

The purpose of this simulated attack is to identify any weak spots in a system’s defenses which attackers could take advantage of. Identifying any weaknesses within an organization’s web applications can have many benefits such as:
Compliance requirements. In some industries, it is explicitly required web application penetration is done to satisfy these requirements.
Web applications. Performing web application security testing allows an organization to find any vulnerabilities within their web applications.
Protective measures. web application security test can also assess any current security policy for weaknesses.
Peace of mind. Knowing your web application has been penetration tested allows you some peace of mind, knowing that no stone was left unturned.

How can Careful Security help?

Careful Security uses pen testing procedures, using state-of-the-art tools and methods to evaluate an organization's web applications. Our highly advanced Pen testing methods, manual and automated, allow an organization to eliminate business-critical vulnerabilities within any web application.

How do you measure risk?

Risk can be assessed both qualitatively and quantitatively. A good risk assessment is a combination of both. Qualitative risk is evaluated based on the business impact and likelihood while quantitative risk is assessed based on the financial value of an asset and the security control used to protect it.
