Web Application Penetration Testing
A web application penetration test assesses the risk of a malicious attacker compromising your website.
The key benefits of web application testing.
A web application penetration test assesses the risk of a malicious attacker compromising your website. Common issues we regularly see across web applications are the ability to view other customers' data, such as past orders/confidential documents or hijacking another person's account.
If your website does not hold sensitive information, there is still a reputational risk with your 'brochure website'. What if a malicious hacker gained access to your website and defaced it or even uploaded some malware that prospective clients could download? Web application penetration tests identify any vulnerabilities that may be present across your websites.

Frequently asked questions.
A web application penetration test assesses the risk of a malicious attacker compromising your website. A couple of common issues we regularly see across web applications is the ability to view other customers' data, such as past orders/confidential documents or hijacking another person's account. Testing is aligned with OWASP Top 10.
The penetration test report will contain an executive summary, a route to exploitation, and a vulnerability overview section detailing any vulnerabilities identified throughout the test.
The length of a web application penetration test is usually defined by how much functionality the web application has and how many different permission tiers are available. Each test is scoped using these factors to determine an accurate length for your business.
Due to the nature of what a penetration test entails (attempting to identify and exploit any vulnerabilities), there is a risk of disruption. However, our team of ethical hackers always tries to minimise any potential disruption that may arise from the test.
On request, we offer free retests with our web application penetration tests for any critical or high vulnerabilities within 28 days from you receiving the report.
A penetration test plays a vital role in having an effective cyber security strategy. A test will highlight any vulnerabilities or issues that are present across your web application. A penetration test will always be a lot cheaper than actually being a victim of a cyber attack.
