DO YOU WANT TO DEVELOP AN APPLICATION FREE FROM ANY EXTERNAL THREATS OR MALWARE? IF SO, THEN OUR SECURITY TESTING SERVICES ARE THE IDEAL CHOICE TO SOLVE SUCH ISSUES!!
WHAT ARE SECURITY TESTING SERVICES?
Security is the central aspect nowadays in any industry. In this digitalization era, every business or organization is at risk of attacks, which means security is crucial and shouldn’t be compromised. There would be a debacle in any business that results from security breaches that can lead to the loss of customers, high costs of legal and recovery processes, and damage to the business’s reputation.
Any web server and, therefore, the application code that runs on those as a web portal or a simple website is vulnerable to attacks in several ways. Such attacks may be that the hacker will be able to simply deface the pages while other attacks include severe attacks like data stealth or disruption of website operations. It’s important to know that merely having firewalls isn’t enough for the safety and security of your software applications. Furthermore, taking any actions or prevention measures after the breach has taken place cannot solve or undo the harm that occurred due to those security issues. Thus, the role of our security testing services through the runtime proactive measures and exceptional testing services can help in all such security issues, and it would be highly beneficial for businesses or organizations.
Our application security testing services is a non-functional testing service for a software application that has the ambition to seek out any vulnerabilities of the tested software application. It also determines whether the software application system and data are safe and secure from intruders or attacks.
Application penetration security testing services are also crucial for web applications since several people can access web applications through the internet from various devices.
Hence, application security testing is crucial and must be considered by businesses to detect any security issues in their software application and take preventive measures. When the software requirements are ready, consideration of such security aspects is crucial.
CONCEPTS RELATED TO PENETRATION SECURITY TESTING SERVICES INCLUDE:
Our web application security testing company relates to concepts such as,
- Confidentiality: The users must be assured that all their sensitive data or information would be effectively protected from 3rd parties and hackers having malicious intentions.
- Integrity: The data and information of the user shouldn’t get disappeared or corrupted.
- Authentication: There should be verification of the user data authenticity, or else security measures won’t be applicable.
- Authorization: As long as the users are identified and granted access to specific data, proper data security would be guaranteed.
- Availability: The users should effortlessly pass the authorization process and get access to their data.
- Non-Repudiation: A software application must provide traceability, and the users should accept it if they had sent or received messages.
COMMON OWASP VULNERABILITIES FOR SECURITY TESTING SERVICES:
Some of the common OWASP vulnerabilities that a software application faces that should be taken into consideration during penetration testing services include:
- Injection: Injection occurs when an attacker or a hacker injects a bit of code to interface within an application while performing unintended actions. One of the most well-known and most common injection attacks is SQL injection (SQLi), where an attacker inserts a SQL statement that can expose all the contents of a database table. An equivalent type of attack that comes against a directory system is LDAP injection.
- Broken Authentication: Attackers can attack and hijack all the user identities in a software application and conceal behind proper user IDs to obtain access to all the data and programs. It can be solved through the help of our web application security testing company.
- Sensitive Data Exposure: If there is an unintended data display when a user operates an internet application containing user data, some significant issues might arise regarding its security.
- Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF): Ill-minded people can also place a specific link on their website on a trustworthy web page or site. On visiting the attacker’s site, the users may unintentionally allow the malicious program to run and steal their sensitive information (logins, passwords, or even gain control over the user’s account and more).
- XML External Entities: Any contents of external files laid out in an XML document are loaded after the configuration of XML processors. A hacker can obtain the XML processor return contents of the local files and then get access to files on other systems that have trust in the attacked system or generate executable code to exploit the XML processor capability. Such a problem can be solved through our penetration testing company in India.
- Broken Access Control: Broken access control happens when users can access several users’ information or perform functions above their levels.
- Security Misconfiguration: Security misconfiguration refers to any software application security systems that are loosely managed or inaccurate. It can occur at any part of a software application; thus, it’s common and can be detected effortlessly.
- Cross-site (XSS): If there is a XSS vulnerability in a software application, users would have extended trust on a specific site to any other malicious site. Users generally allow particular actions to trusted sites by providing them with permission; however, malicious or harmful programs can modify any trusted site to make it communicate with an untrusted site, thus spreading malware and exposing sensitive data. Such an issue can be prevented with the help of our security testing services.
- Insecure Deserialization: Serialization helps convert an object into data that can effortlessly be stored within the software application or sent somewhere. In such a way, one can regenerate the object in the same state through another system and/or different times through deserialization. Thus, the hacker provides an object and, once deserialized, gets access privileges or runs a malicious program.
- Usage of Components with Known Vulnerabilities: It is easy to reduce development costs and extend innovation through open source development practices. However, there are still some security issues and challenges in the management process and the benefits of open source software applications. To use it effectively without facing any such challenges, you can try the testing services of our penetration security testing company in India.
- Insufficient Logging and Monitoring: Insufficient logging and monitoring occur when there aren’t any security-critical events appropriately logged, and the software application can’t monitor the current happenings.
