Safe and thorough testing process
A web application penetration test, or web app pentest for short, is a service where our team of ethical hackers attack your application and the underlying architecture using real-world tools and techniques in order to find security weaknesses. We identify specific risks to your business systems and data and provide proven mitigation strategies. The best defenses are well tested against a good offense, ensuring proper preparation when real attacks occur.
Functionality and usability are often the primary concerns in development, leaving security as an afterthought. Web app penetration testing is the most effective technique for identifying security flaws. We review your entire application, including the front-end, back-end, and underlying hosting architecture to ensure your applications and databases are secure.
Web App Pentest Approach
Focus on manual testing
Unlike many web app pentest providers, we do not simply run a piece of software against your application and see what the program spits out. Our team uses hands-on manual techniques to safely and securely take a deep dive and ensure a proper review from top to bottom. In addition to ensuring that we provide the most thorough and accurate assessment possible, our methods virtually eliminate the risk of an unintended denial-of-service (DoS) attack during the exercise, which is a potential risk when automated testing techniques are used.
Our AppSec experts will review your software from both an outside perspective, revealing any unintended information or vulnerabilities exposed to the public, as well from the backend, combing through your code and system architecture to find potential weaknesses. Our services include Manual Inspection and Review, Threat Modeling, Penetration Testing, Code Review, and Infrastructure Review. The end goal is to find potential vulnerabilities and recommend architecture improvements to maximize security and performance.
Modeled on OWASP Methodology
Grid32’s work approach for web-application penetration tests is modeled around the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) testing methodology and as such follows the current OWASP recommendations and best-practices. We built our proprietary testing methodology specifically around the OWASP testing guide as it is the definitive resource for web-application penetration tests. Using this approach allows us to be creative in our approach while staying within a secure framework.
We work with your development team, not against them
The goal of a security exercise is not to reveal deficiencies in the performance of the application development team, but rather to support them. Developers are pressured to make things easy-to-use and functional, which diametrically oppose security. Our assessment aids the development team, giving them a road-map for making their applications bulletproof. Just like a CFO needs a CPA firm to audit their financials, an independent audit from a security firm like Grid32 provides valuable insight and guidance. Our services include Manual Inspection and Review, Threat Modeling, Penetration Testing, Code Review, and Infrastructure Review. The end goal is to find potential vulnerabilities and recommend architecture improvements to maximize security and performance.
“I would recommend Grid32 to anyone looking to improve the security of their web application. Our dev team was able to implement their remediation strategies and ensure our application has no vulnerabilities.”
“Grid32 tests dozens of applications for us every year. They are our go-to partner for ensuring an application is ready to be launched from a security standpoint and for continued assessments for new and emerging threats.”
“We performed testing for compliance, but were able to realize other benefits beyond satisfying our auditors. We now have independent proof for our customers that we have a secure app, and our developers were able to fix certain issues that we were unaware existed.”
