Hybrid Approach to Web Application Security
Automated as well as exhaustive manual website security testing identifies flaws in your web application security and business logic related vulnerabilities. Every security test plan has to go beyond international standards such as OWASP and SANS, and comes with a detailed impact assessment and mitigation proposal.
Identify all Vulnerabilities and Exposures
Penetration testing that simulates hackers, specialized vulnerability assessments (including web application security assessments), automated scans, and manual checks reduce the number of false negatives and identify all security gaps in your systems, your software, or any other critical element of your organization. Following a security test plan targets weak authentication, insecure session management, hosting platforms, etc., and can include the following controlled exploits:
Cross Site Request Forgery
Denial of Service
Request / Response
Get robust and resilient applications that
can withstand sophisticated threats
Test apps such as mobile banking, m-commerce, and mobile payment systems on multiple device platforms under a single program including iPad, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Symbian, and Windows in a unified program to improve efficiency.
Creating a Threat Profile
IWM never uses a generic threat profile for its security test plan. Our security testers create a comprehensive business case profile that helps explore all possible vulnerabilities and threats before creating a threat profile. Client feedback is obtained before moving to the next step.
Creating a Test Plan
Once the potential threats are identified a security test plan is created to identify if these threats can be exploited. Domain and platform based tests help create a thorough understanding of the application threat landscape including user privileges, critical transactions and sensitive data.
Solutions and Fixes
Once vulnerabilities are found, it is ranked based on the threat it poses for the business and not just a universal rank. This helps clients prioritize the right threats. Our experts also provide remediation guidance, so your developers can fix these vulnerabilities sooner and stay focused on product ingenuity.
Creating a Report
IWM’s own online reporting portal tool provides a bird’s eye view for managers and a detailed picture for developers. It lets you receive real-time updates of an ongoing project and lets you contact our security testing specialists through a chat window to keep your progress unbroken by communication delays.
