Peter Theobald Author Of Cybersecurity Demystified
I have been using Security Brigade services for the past fourteen years. In my role as leading the cybersecurity Initiative at multiple national system integrators in India, I have worked with them to provide VA/PT, External Attack Surface Management, and Red Teaming services to large corporate customers. In each case they have met or exceeded expectations resulting in repeat business. I have no hesitation recommending their services for quality conscious customers wanting to enhance their security posture.

We started working with Security Brigade as a cost effective solution for doing VAPT for applications and networks for our customers. But we have developed a great partnership with Security Brigade over the last 6+ years. They treat our customers as their own customers and provide solutions and do the activities as per agreed terms and sometimes even they don’t mind going beyond and deliver to customer. We will be happy to continue working with them and refer others as well.

What is a Web Application Penetration Testing?

Our Web Application Security Testing Service identifies technical and business logic vulnerabilities in your websites while providing you with detailed instructions and concrete recommendations.

  • Integrated proprietary, open-source and commercial tools
  • Intelligent automated testing engine selects the ideal combination of tools based on internal benchmarks
  • Our reports provide step-by-step POCs and detailed fix information with code and config examples
  • Identifies both technical (OWASP Top 10, WASC 25, etc) and business logic vulnerabilities
  • We create an in-depth map of your web-application business-logic and workflow
  • Experts manually create specific test-cases for your web-application logic and workflow
  • Access to our real-time security dashboard to track your projects, issues and fixes.

Unlike traditional website security services which only focus on automated scanners, we thoroughly map your business logic, web-application data flow and in-turn identify workflow related vulnerabilities. This combination of automated and expert-driven manual testing ensures the best end result for your web-applications.

Our in-house developed E.D.I.T.E framework takes our experienced consultants through a well-defined testing workflow that intelligently automates repeatable tasks while facilitating auditors to efficiently carry out thorough manual testing.

Benefits of a Web Application Penetration Testing

Identify security vulnerabilities

A penetration test can help you identify security vulnerabilities in your web applications, such as misconfigurations, coding errors, and missing security controls. These vulnerabilities can be exploited by attackers to gain access to your systems and data.

Assess your security posture

A penetration test can help you assess your overall security posture by identifying areas where your security is weak. This information can be used to prioritize your security investments and improve your overall security posture.

Meet compliance requirements

Many industries are required to comply with certain security regulations, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR. A penetration test can help you assess your compliance with these regulations and identify any areas where you need to improve.

Prevent data breaches

By identifying and fixing security vulnerabilities, a penetration test can help you prevent data breaches. Data breaches can be costly and damaging to your organization, so it is important to take steps to prevent them.

Types of Web-Application Penetration Testing - Black Box, White Box, Grey Box

Black box penetration testing is a type of penetration testing where the tester has no prior knowledge of the web application or its underlying infrastructure. The tester must start from scratch and use publicly available information to identify vulnerabilities. This type of testing is the most realistic simulation of an attack by an external attacker. However, it can also be the most time-consuming and expensive, as the tester may need to spend a lot of time gathering information before they can start testing.

Grey box penetration testing is a type of penetration testing where the tester has some knowledge of the web application, such as its architecture, design, or source code. This information is typically provided by the organization being tested. Grey box testing can be more efficient than black box testing, as the tester can focus their efforts on the areas of the application that are most likely to be vulnerable. However, it is not as realistic as black box testing, as the tester still has some knowledge of the application that an attacker would not have.

White box penetration testing is a type of penetration testing where the tester has complete knowledge of the web application, including its architecture, design, source code, and configuration. This type of testing is the most comprehensive and can identify the widest range of vulnerabilities. However, it is also the most expensive and time-consuming, as the tester needs to be given access to confidential information.

Deliverable of Our Web Application Penetration Testing?

  • Executive Presentation: provide high level executive summaries of the engagement, key root cause analysis of the identified issues & best practice recommendations for the long-term to help leaders better understand their risk and incorporate our recommendations into their roadmap.
  • Detailed Technical Reports: provide in-depth descriptions, step by step proof of concepts, detailed recommendations with source-code & configuration examples of all the security issues identified as part of the assessment. Security issues identified are risk-rated based on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) and mapped to industry leading standards such as OWASP Web Top 10, OWASP Mobile Top 10, etc.
  • Safe To Host Security Certificate: The certificate of compliance is a formal document that is issued by the auditor to the organization. This document states that the organization has been found to be in compliance with the guidelines.
  • List of Recommendations for Improvement: The list of recommendations for improvement will identify areas where the organization can strengthen its technology risk management framework. These recommendations can be used by the organization to improve its security posture and reduce its risk of a data breach or other security incident.
