What is Application Penetration Testing?

Application penetration testing is a type of assessment that identifies vulnerabilities within mobile, web applications and APIs by replicating the same techniques used by hackers. It is highly recommended to conduct a pentest of your application at least once a year of following any major changes to stay on top of the latest cyber threats. Conducting yearly penetration tests of your application is also required by various standards, such as PCI-DSS.

METHODOLOGIES

Manual vs. Automated Application Testing

Most professionals in the industry agree that application risks cannot be sufficiently mitigated by relying on automated testing solutions. While it can be a great starting point for organizations that lack the budget to undergo frequent manual testing of their application, it should never be your only resort to test your application’s security. Here are examples of high/critical vulnerabilities that can only be identified through manual testing:
Application Vulnerability

Application logic flaws

network vulnerability

Authorization bypass

Privilege escalation

Non-authenticated access

Insufficient session expiration

Session management flaws

Frequently Asked Questions

Penetration testing is essential to any business, but it remains a complex subject and choosing a good provider can be challenging. The following FAQ answers the most frequently asked questions to help you make an informed decision.

Manual penetration tests and fully automated scanners are the most common techniques to identify and fix cybersecurity vulnerabilities within your technologies. While many similarities exist between the two, they are often misinterpreted as the same thing, although they yield very different results.

Every professional in the industry agrees that cyber risks cannot be sufficiently mitigated by relying on automated scans alone. It can be a great starting point for those who lack the resources to undergo frequent manual tests, but should not be your only resort to test your cybersecurity.

Upon completion of the test, your company receives a report detailing all of the findings. This document is broken down in several sections that are relevant for various stakeholders. A professional penetration testing report should always present the following items:

  • An executive summary that outlines the findings in a clear and concise language. This section should be easily understood by your non-technical staff and acts as a key component of your risk management strategy.
  • Vulnerability listing prioritized by risk level. 
  • Technical details of the identified vulnerabilities including their potential impact if exploited and supporting evidence (screenshots, HTTP requests, etc.).
  • Actionable recommendations to fix each identified vulnerability.
  • External references to facilitate the implementation of the recommended corrective measures.

Various steps are taken by our specialists to prevent the potential impact of our tests on the stability of your technological environment and the continuity of your business operations.

Unless specifically instructed to, our specialists refrain from performing any disruptive types of attacks that can, for example, cause denial of service. Thereby, most of our clients are unable to perceive any impact of our tests due to the rigorous measures we deploy to conduct our projects as seamlessly as possible.
