What We Know

400 Attacks Per Day

Attack trends show 87% of public facing web applications face over 100 cross-site scripting attacks and 400 SQL injection attacks on a typical day.¹

Biggest Targets

Banks, e-commerce, health, education and technology industries face the highest percentage of attacks than any other industry.²

Average Application Exploited 200 Days

Hacker spend on average 200 days inside your application’s network after gaining access before they decide to ransom your data or sell the exploit to the highest bidder.³

Our web application penetration testing methodology

  • Information Gathering

    We will spend a few days attempting to identify existing or potential vulnerabilities for all fields, objects, commands, code perimeters, forms and buttons across the application using the OWASP source code best practice guidelines.

  • Threat Modelling

    Our engineers will attempt to transmit data across the application using the available assets (such as fields and buttons) and then map potential threats to the available attack vectors within your environment.

  • Vulnerability Analysis

    We will work to discover flaws in the system and application which can be leveraged by an attacker. We will undertake tasks such as banner grabbing, flaw scanning, brute forcing, looking for common and uncommon vulnerabilities and exploits.

  • Exploitation

    We try to establish access to a system or resource by bypassing security restrictions. This sometimes includes user privilege escalation where available in your application. We also look at how effective your existing countermeasures are at preventing exploitation.
