With the migration to cloud computing and web-based services, web applications are necessary and cost-effective tools. However, because they are Internet-facing, web applications increase the public attack surface. This can create the gateway cybercriminals need to access your data, or provide a convenient tool to leverage as part of a malicious campaign.
Sword & Shield Enterprise Security partners with you through our Web Application Assessment service to empower your business to offer and use secure web applications. Our web security experts evaluate your web app vulnerabilities created by flaws in the development, configuration, deployment, upgrade process, maintenance or third party add-ons of the application, and then provide a road map for remediation.
Following the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Application Security Verification Standard, our certified GIAC web application penetration testers (GWAPT) apply their depth and breadth of information security and compliance knowledge to provide you with a detailed security analysis.
Our web application testing covers the entire exposed web app environment, from the server hosting the app to any back-end APIs.
This service includes a penetration test to determine if the protective controls of the target can be bypassed. This can be provided as part of a comprehensive compliance solution for the following:
Sword & Shield offers third-party web application assessments for these types of customers:
Web application developer: Security should be “baked in” to your web application, not bolted on. Sword & Shield works with you during the software development lifecycle to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities prior to going to market.
Web application user: You should always request a certificate of attestation from your web application vendor. If the company cannot provide one, or you desire an objective analysis, Sword & Shield’s web app assessment is the service you need. We test and report on our findings, then work with you to close the vulnerability gaps.
Sword & Shield feels our web application assessment report is as valuable as the exercise itself. We use a proprietary platform to comprehensively report identified vulnerabilities, documenting our process and findings to produce a thorough and helpful roadmap for remediation.
