What is web application testing?

If unmaintained, web applications can provide convenient entry points for threat actors to breach your organisation and steal confidential data. Web application penetration testing services enable you to identify and remediate critical issues before they can be exploited, providing your organisation with crucial protection against cyber attacks.

Rootshell Security’s Web Application Penetration Testing services assess your applications for issues listed in the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) testing guide; these are industry-recognised guidelines for web app security. We then safely utilise the same techniques as real-world threat actors to establish how vulnerabilities could be exploited.

Our CREST-certified penetration testers provide expert guidance throughout. You will receive the support you need to successfully remediate issues as quickly and effectively as possible to keep your web applications secure.

The benefits of application penetration testing services

  • Prepare for a real-world attack: Web applications are popular targets for threat actors; penetration tests are one of the most effective ways to improve and maintain their security. By emulating the tactics, techniques, and procedures used by threat actors, our penetration testing services truly put your web application security to the test.
  • Uncover critical vulnerabilities: As the risk of cyber attacks continues to increase, it’s crucial you have complete visibility of your organisation’s vulnerabilities. Our web application penetration testing services will identify any vulnerabilities within your applications, from low to high risk, so you can take action.
  • Effectively remediate risk: Web application penetration testing services provide you with the data you need to manage and resolve vulnerabilities. Our penetration testers offer expert support so you can remediate as quickly and effectively as possible.
  • Comply with security standards: Carrying out penetration testing services is essential for meeting a number of different regulatory standards. Our CREST-certified penetration tests will ensure your organisation is compliant.

What is involved in web application penetration testing?

Our fully-managed application penetration testing services are carried out in five stages.

  • Scoping: We work closely with your organisation to understand and agree on the complexity of your requirements. This gives us the opportunity to discuss any prerequisites, such as test accounts, authorisation, and escalation processes. All scoping, including exchanging information, is conducted securely within the Rootshell Platform.
  • Pen Testing: We review your web applications in line with OWASP guidelines. We then attempt to exploit issues through an unauthenticated and uninformed attacker perspective. The aim is to gain unauthorised access to your application data and other systems to demonstrate how you could be breached.
  • Reporting: We provide you with a clear and extensive pen test reporting, detailing all our findings from your web application penetration test. The report provides you with a clear understanding of any areas of risk or vulnerability and will form the basis of your remediation process.
  • Review: Once your penetration test is complete and you have reviewed your report, you can discuss all aspects of it with your consultant. We offer expert post-pen test support and guidance on web application remediation activities.
  • Free Re-Test: We are passionate about our cybersecurity testing and it’s our firm belief that delivering a report of vulnerabilities should not complete a penetration test. Following an assessment, we will provide clear recommendations on how to mitigate against reported vulnerabilities and offer free remote retesting following remediation.

A penetration test simulates a real-world attack on your organisation’s network, applications, and systems to identify any weaknesses. A pen test is conducted manually by skilled consultants, who use the same techniques as real-word hackers; you can think of it as ‘ethical hacking’. On the other hand, vulnerability scanning is carried out using automated tools and solely focuses on identifying vulnerabilities within software.
