Web Application Penetration Testing

Web technologies have advanced in recent years and so have the Web Applications that we all use daily. With this advancement and reliance upon web technologies, we have also been exposed to security risks associated with these applications.

What are the risks?

External facing Web Applications used by businesses are by nature available to all via the public Internet. Their complexity and availability have made them an ideal target for attackers and there have been many publicised data breaches that have been caused by insecure web applications.

Protecting these applications from new threats is a constant challenge, especially for developers who may not be security aware and who are working towards a performance deadline.

How can we help?

Pentest People have a professional Web Application Security Testing service that can be used to identify vulnerabilities that exist on your web applications.  Pentest People have a wealth of knowledge in the area of Web Application Security Testing and their testers have created and contributed to many open source web application security projects.

This Web Application testing can be performed remotely for external facing web applications or internally at your premises if the application is an internal application.

The service would be delivered as part of the Pentest People Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) and full access to the SecurePortal and other complimentary tools would be provided.
