Application Penetration Testing

Comprehensive, manual, and automated web application penetration testing from Rhymetec protects you against vulnerabilities that can expose your data, cripple operations, and devastate your business.


I What is Application Penetration Testing?

A web application penetration test identifies weaknesses in your web application, which may be incompletely or poorly integrated into your security environment. Web app penetration testing reveals potential vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and flaws, and provides recommendations for mitigations that can prevent them from being exploited by an attacker.



In addition to the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) and Information Systems Security Assessment Framework (ISSAF). Rhymetec’s web application penetration testing service leverages the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), a comprehensive framework for assessing the security of web-based applications, as a foundation for our web application assessment methodology.

Why It’s A Good Idea
Web applications are often a poorly-secured backdoor into enterprise IT systems: they can operate inside your security perimeter, offer multiple vectors for attackers to exploit, and represent a substantial risk for penetration. If your enterprise relies on web apps to operate, this is a crucial, must-have service that provides insights and recommendations that can:

1. Secure web apps against intrusion
2. Protect privileged data resources
3. Make your security more resilient
4. Avoid costly incidents
5. Manage risk
6. Achieve compliance goals

I How we do it
The automated dynamic analysis provides a framework for our web application testing, however, our team relies on precise and diligent manual testing to provide the most comprehensive and effective evaluation of your web apps. Service is fine-tuned according to your cloud deployment, application service model, and system architecture, but you can count on targeted testing for vulnerabilities in the graphical user interface (GUI) and application program interface (API). Web application testing from Rhymetec tests for discovers and analyzes:

1.  Infection vulnerabilities
2.  Broken authentication
3. Sensitive data exposure
4. XML external entities
5. Broken access controls
6. Security misconfigurations
7. Cross-site scripting
8. Insecure deserialization
9. Insufficient logging and monitoring
10. Components with known vulnerabilities

We adhere to recommendations and requirements from the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) and Information Systems Security Assessment Framework (ISSAF), as well as guidance from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).
