Web Application Penetration Testing

Trusted and CREST accredited penetration testing provider

Web Application Penetration Testing

With its web app pen testing service, URM conducts a security review to test the web application from an authenticated perspective.   A web application penetration test is a type of ethical hacking engagement designed to assess the architecture, design and configuration of web applications.  This test will review each page within the website to understand if any vulnerabilities exist.  The penetration test, for example, will identify common web vulnerabilities (e.g., OWASP top 10) using industry standard methodologies, such as the OWASP Web Security Testing Guide (WSTG) and the OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS).  

Where required, the web application penetration test can be performed under the CREST OWASP Verification Standard (OVS) framework.

Where various access levels are available within the application (e.g., administrator vs standard users), URM performs testing to confirm that each access level does not have access to information outside of their level of privilege or tenant.

Why URM?

As a CREST-accredited organisation, URM is able to provide reassurances that all the policies, processes and procedures which underpin its cyber security penetration testing have been independently assessed and deemed to be fit for purpose.  Furthermore, accreditation to the CREST OVS programme reflects URM’s commitment to employing highly skilled individuals who are able to deliver Level 1 and Level 2 ASVS and MASVS assessments for web and mobile applications.  With its CREST penetration testing URM is able to support you through the whole penetration testing process, providing support during all the phases of the project. URM’s expert team will assist you during the scoping phase, provide regular updates during the assessment, provide a debrief meeting at the end of the assessment and help you through the remediation process.

URM fully understands that the objective of penetration testing is to reduce the risk affecting your organisation’s assets. That is why URM includes a free retest of any high or critical vulnerabilities identified during an assessment in the first 30 days after the assessment, to ensure the highest risks are mitigated as quickly as possible.

One of the major differentiators between URM and other penetration testing organisations is its holistic approach. Not only can URM provide cutting edge pen testing services, but with its governance, risk and compliance background can also provide a whole plethora of policy, process and training solutions to address your security weaknesses.  Furthermore as a Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor Company (PCI QSAC) URM has teams which can provide assessment (RoC) consultancy and PCI penetration testing services.
