web Application and API Penetration Testing

Secure your web applications against the latest cyber threats

Web Application and Application Programming Interfaces (API) are a common target of hackers as they can be a treasure trove of sensitive payment, personal and commercial information.

What is a Web Application and API Penetration Test?

Web Applications can be brochure-ware websites, e-commerce sites or third-party SaaS-based services, where they are programs that can be accessed by users via a web browser (eg: Google Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer) and are part of an organisation’s web presence.

Application Programming Interface (API) is software that allows two or more application to communicate and exchange data.

A Web Application and API Penetration Test focuses on vulnerabilities within applications: ranging from design to development to implementation and actual use.

In this penetration test, our team of CREST Certified Web Application Testers will assess your organisation for vulnerabilities listed in the OWASP Top 10, Open Web Application Security Project’s ten most critical application security risks. These vulnerabilities include: 

  • Broken Access Controls 
  • Cryptographic Failures 
  • Injection
  • Insecure Design
  • Security Misconfiguration
  • Vulnerable and Outdated Components
  • Identification and Authentication Failures 
  • Software and Data Integrity Failures 

Why Penetration Test?

Assess how well your web application and APIs will fare against attacks through the internet

Secure your Application

Due to the constantly reducing Time-To-Market requirements, security is often not appropriately baked into these products. Furthermore, the reliance on an array of development languages and technologies only makes the task of securing applications even harder. 

Safeguard you application against Hackers

Hackers typically rely on poor coding, software/technology vulnerabilities, misconfiguration, and erroneous business logic to gain access to sensitive information and, in some cases, also use the application to gain a foothold into an organisation’s internal environment.

Thus, organisations should test the security of their applications and support APIs to ensure attackers cannot cause severe and irreparable damage to their ability to function.
