Application Penetration Testing

Reduce The Risk Of A Breach Within Your Web + Mobile Apps and APIs

An Application Pentest is a thorough review of custom-developed web, mobile, and APIs leveraging an industry-leading OWASP-based methodology. During this assessment, our team of OSCP-minimum ethical hackers systematically maps and tests for vulnerabilities that go beyond the OWASP Top 10 including mind-bending business logic vulnerabilities.

What's included:
  • Thorough mapping of in-scope pages and endpoints

  • Automated scanning and validation of findings

  • Manual discovery of up to 200 types of vulnerabilities across 10+ categories

  • Demonstrated impact to help with executive and developer buy-in

  • Comprehensive reporting with detailed step-by-step instructions to reproduce

  • Advisory on remediation steps and retesting to validate closure of findings

Application Penetration Testing vs DevSecOps

Packetlabs offers two types of application security testing: Application Penetration Testing and DevSecOps. Application Penetration Testing works to identify a variety of security flaws–including, but not limited to, insecure data storage, transmission and processing, inner application exposure, and authentication weaknesses. A range of tools and procedures (namely dynamic and static analyses, code inspections, and penetration testing) are used by our team to ensure that your organization’s web apps, mobile apps, and PIs are safeguarded from potential threats. Our DevSecOps recurring testing service helps discover vulnerabilities in a client’s application development lifecycle: integrated early, it can act as an extension of your development team to accurately find and flag vulnerabilities within your existing detected management systems in advance of User Acceptance Testing (UAT). While both options find security flaws that others often overlook, DevSecOps addresses security risks at all phases of the application lifecycle.
