App Pentest

Identify application vulnerabilities,
before someone else does

Identifying attack paths

 

The more technology used within enterprise the greater the efficiencies and reliance on automation. Whilst this benefits productivity and profitability it also adds heightened security risks.  No one tool can resolve application vulnerabilities, but proactive testing and informed diagnosis will enable the right solution to be implemented.

Uncovering openings in your environment

 

AppSec pen testing seeks to discover and push the boundaries of the slightest vulnerability in infrastructure and applications to exploit them in a controlled practice. Once achieved, suitable controls can be developed and deployed quickly to block access points from malicious actors.  

 

Penetration testing also identifies ‘false positive’ weaknesses in the form of existing security controls that are not functioning properly, especially with web applications and open source tech.

16% of security vulnerabilities in tested applications are medium, high, or critical risk.

Finding weaknesses

 

Whilst security can be embedded into the core of new applications, legacy software is at greater risk of exploitation. Pentesting is essential to identifying vulnerabilities in the system that could have arisen from a new patch fixing an existing issue.

 

Aside from web applications and software, the psychological and susceptible vulnerabilities of employees present risks associated with social engineering due to a lack of cyber resilience and security training.

Exposing the weakest links

 

Bramfitt pentesters will perform vital security analysis on the critical components within an application and its supporting infrastructure: 

  • Penetration testing by humans
  • Software testing
  • Web application testing
  • Wireless capabilities
  • Vulnerability scanning

 

The results will be interpreted and appropriate resolutions implemented that are specific to the technologies being used. A combination of quick wins, urgent remedial work and recommended embedded AppSec investment will help to disperse uncertainty around risk.
