Web applications play a vital role in the success of a business and are an attractive target for cybercriminals. Web Application Penetration / Security Testing (WAPT / WAST) is the process of proactively identifying applications vulnerabilities, such as those that could lead to the loss of sensitive user data, company data and financial information. This includes misconfigured SaaS web applications and server-side security controls.
Certbar undertakes Web Application Security Testing (WAST) with manual approach with our unique and well researched methodology including but not limited to OWASP Top 10, OSSTMM guidelines, SANS Top 25, etc. helping our client's vital IT asset. We are highly focused on business logic vulnerabilities that are missed by automated scanners. Our team conducts internal discussions in a timely manner to discuss weird testing techniques which results in finding more vulnerabilities.
In this era of technology where the dynamic application analysis is used on a wide scale we ensure our clients stay ahead of the emerging threats. We adapt and integrate more in our methodology from the current security standards such as ASVS by OWASP, SANS top 25, MITRE | ATT & CK, NVD, OWASP top 10, NIST, and OSSTMM.
Penetration testing for web applications not only requires knowledge of the latest web application security testing tools but also a deep understanding of how to use them most effectively. To assess web app security, ethical hackers leverage a range of specialist tools. These range from specialist pen testing platforms (such as burp suite, Metasploit Pro and Kali Linux), to networking tools (such as Wireshark), and custom-developed tools and exploits written using Python, Java and PowerShell.
