Application Penetration Testing

Web applications are a must for any business. Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur or want to gain the attention of online customers, websites are essential tools. The web applications of different companies are excellent ways to establish their online reputation. Thus, your web applications must stand high on all parameters. You can trust the expertise of DigiAlert when it comes to application penetration testing.

Why Do You Need Application Penetration Testing?

Web applications must stand high on response time, security, and user-friendly features. Application penetration testing is a straightforward yet effective testing technique to detect vulnerabilities in your web-based applications. It uses different automated and manual processes to identify security issues and vulnerabilities in the platform.

1.To maintain security standards

Unique businesses like e-commerce and retail require high-end security web applications. There are multiple logins, passwords, payment details, etc., that are highly sensitive. Thus, it is crucial to maintain the security standards of your web application.

3. To uncover potential threats

The web application penetration testing covers all network devices and operating systems to recognize vulnerabilities at all possible levels in an organization. It presents a detailed report that is necessary to assess the weaknesses.

2. To test the responsiveness of the security system

Like fire drills, web application penetration testing is crucial to evaluate the responsiveness of any security system. This can raise the issues like delayed responses or incorrect processes that require immediate attention.

4. To prevent future attacks

The web application penetration testing helps estimate the possible attacks on the web application, sensitive data, and backend system. It works as a security test to guess the behavior of hackers.

DigiAlert Approach to Application Penetration Testing

Application penetration testing is a comprehensive process, but we at DigiAlert follow a holistic approach to application penetration testing.

  • Our team starts by identifying the security flaws in your web application using different methods like black-box testing, white-box penetration testing, and grey box penetration testing.
  • We help you to raise red flags on the existing risk levels of your web application.
  • We analyze the penetration testing results and enable you to map a path to address and successfully fix the identified flaws.

DigiAlert works on scope-based application penetration testing. Our experts mimic ethical hacking to understand the possible security threats.

What Can DigiAlert Detect?

Our ethical web application penetration testers successfully detect:

SQL Injection: Our team accesses the SQL statements in the backend of your web application. It is termed SQL injection and allows unauthorized access to your web application’s data. Thus, you can protect the potential chances of unauthorized access to your web application’s data by performing planned SQL injection attacks.

XML External Entities Injection (XXE): The extensible markup language (XML) is a standard and highly flexible way to create information formats. It helps electronic sharing of structured data through the corporate network and public internet. Thus, XML is essential for describing data on your web application.Thus, in XML external entities injection, our ethical attackers interfere with the processing of XML data. In this attack, the testers can view files on the server and access the back-end systems supporting the web applications.

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS):Your web application may execute scripts in different browsers to receive and run untrustworthy requests. Our testing experts use malicious scripts to perform other unauthorized actions. These actions include hijacking cookie sessions and defacing the websites. It also includes redirecting the unsuspecting users to the low-security websites that can steal the visitor’s information.

Security Misconfiguration: Our testing experts detect the loopholes in the security configuration of your web application. These security loopholes are left at the time of web development and are highly dangerous. Thus, our testing experts try to access targeted areas on your web application like the input fields and URLs.

Weak Authentication: Broken authentication is one of the leading security threats for any web application. The details of login id, password, and other user details are prone to potential security breaches due to broken authentication. Our testing experts try to control the broken authentication to access the sensitive customer or user’s information on your web application. Our ethical attacks try to evaluate your web application’s ability to identify the user.

Poor Session Management: Poor session management on your web application can cause serious security issues. The loopholes in the ruleset required between the website and the visitors make it prone to various security attacks. Our testing experts try to penetrate the web sessions that are a series of HTTP requests and response transactions. All browsers and web applications use HTTP to communicate. Our ethical attackers try to get into the existing session to access sensitive information of the users. Thus, poor session management compromises the security of your visitors.

Broken Access Controls: The access controls are essential to keep a hold on your web application. The access control strictly follows a policy that binds the users to act inside the intended permissions only. The broken access controls can pass unauthorized information or can destruct the data. Our testing experts can modify or perform a business function outside the allowable limits. Thus, broken access controls are critical for any business.

Vulnerable Components: There are multiple vulnerable components on any web application. Website development may contain some weak links like out-of-date data, unsupported elements, and susceptible elements to attacks. Our testing experts try to gain access to your web application by extracting these vulnerable components.

Insecure Deserialization: The object injection vulnerability or insecure deserialization occurs when the user-controlled data is deserialized by your web application. Our ethical attackers manipulate the serialized objects to insert malicious data into web application code. Thus, our testing experts try to alternate the source code of your web application.
