Web Application Penetration Testing

Secure your web applications against cyber threats

Our web application penetration testing services aim to identify and rectify vulnerabilities in your web applications, regardless of their hosting environment - be it cloud-based or built on conventional 3-tier architectures, or any other configuration.

What You Get

Rhyno's ethical hackers ensure that businesses gain the utmost advantage from security audits and penetration tests by offering:

  • Executive Summary: Outlining risk management implications
  • Technical Report: Detailling vulnerabilities in your web application
  • Recommendations: Walkthrough on how to fix identified vulnerabilities
  • Expert Guidance: Actions plan to improve your web application security
  • Attestation: To meet compliance requirements (SOC2, ISO27001, etc.)

Why Web Application Penetration Testing?

Web Application Penetration Testing focuses on fortifying your web applications against cyber dangers. Through emulating actual hacking methods, we detect weaknesses in your application and provide practical solutions for security enhancements.

Our Web Penetration Testing Process

  1. Planning and Reconnaissance

    • Determining the test's scope and objectives, including the systems to test and methods to use.
    • Collecting data (like network and domain information, mail servers) to understand the target's functioning and potential weak points.
  2. Scanning

    Evaluating the target application's reaction to intrusion attempts, typically through:

    • Static Analysis: Examining the application's code to predict behavior during execution. These tools can review all code at once.
    • Dynamic Analysis: Analyzing the application's code while it is active, offering a real-time perspective of its performance.
  3. Gaining Access

    Employing web application attacks (e.g., cross-site scripting, SQL injection, backdoors) to find vulnerabilities. The aim is to exploit these weaknesses, possibly through privilege escalation, data theft, or intercepting traffic, to gauge the potential damage.

  4. Maintaining Access

    Testing if the vulnerability allows for a prolonged presence in the system, mimicking advanced persistent threats that often stay hidden for extended periods to steal critical data.

  5. Analysis

    Compiling the penetration test outcomes into a report that includes:

    • Exploited vulnerabilities.
    • Accessed sensitive data.
    • Duration of undetected presence in the system.
    • Security teams analyze this data to adjust WAF settings and other security measures, fixing vulnerabilities and bolstering defenses against future attacks
  6. Reporting

    Documenting and presenting comprehensive findings, including:

    • Detailed descriptions of identified vulnerabilities and how they were exploited.
    • Impact assessment of the vulnerabilities on the organization.
    • Recommendations for remediation and improving security posture.
    • Prioritization of issues based on risk level and potential impact.
    • A roadmap for future security measures and tests.
