- Application Security 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.
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 Security Testing Service Highlights
Assess supporting infrastructure and application configuration for weaknesses
Test for password policies and reset functionality
Ensure the application reacts appropriately to unwanted data
Assess account creation and enumeration possibilities
Input Validation & Client-Side
Test for insecure coding practices that could lead to injection attacks
Test for weaknesses in the session management schema
Identify weaknesses for cryptographic attacks
Prevent application misuse by ensuring business logic is secure within each flow
Identify misconfigurations in the authorization schema to prevent privilege escalation
Application Security Testing Comparison Chart
Packetlabs offers two types of application security testing: Application Security Testing and DevSecOps.
Application Security 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.

- How do I prepare for a web application penetration test?
Web applications would only require the website URL and the user accounts to access the website. We always recommend testing against a non-production environment to ensure availability is maintained for your production website. No denial of service attacks are ever conducted but each application is built differently resulting in different responses to attacks. If production is your only environment, we take the proper precautions and work with your team to reduce the likelihood of any downtime.
- Why perform security testing on web applications?
Nearly every organization has an online footprint which often includes a web application, data breaches and hacks are all over the news each and every week, when it comes down to business securing your online presence means protecting your brand. Web application security testing is performed to help identify security weakness, ideally before an attacker can, and then fix the weaknesses to prevent an attacker from doing harm. Read more on 5 Reasons Why Hackers Target Your Website here.
- What should I test in a web application?
While ideally every aspect of a web application should be tested, realistically time and budget are two important factors. The web application itself needs to be tested for common vulnerabilities such SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS) items in the OWASP Top 10, the servers and infrastructure hosting the web application also need to be tested as the application is only as secure as the server(s) it is hosted on. Authentication and session management, payment processing and business logic are all critical areas that should be tested.
- Why do you need credentials to the web application? Why can’t you just “hack in?”
Assessing a web application's security involves testing the entire features and capabilities, not just if a hacker can access the application without authorization. While it is rare or nearly impossible to find a perfectly secure web application, there is no guarantee that an application’s authentication process can be hacked, or the methods might be out of the scope of the test, such as phishing users and/or developers. As such, providing testers with credentials ensure the application can be tested in its entirety.
- Why do you need so many accounts?
Often web applications will have more than one type of users such as a read-only or regular user and a super-user or admin. Typically a minimum of two sets of credentials for each user role is provided for testing. This allows the tester to accurately test that the vertical permission controls (e.g. preventing read up’s) and horizontal permissions controls (e.g. impersonating other read-only users) are functioning as intended.
