Security Testing

The key element in building a positive user experience is a sense of security and trust between the provider and the client.

Why?

The era of digital transition is a time when companies implement intensive development strategies to create products and services based on current internet technologies. Standard customer service is now offered through a variety of communication channels and is supported by many applications and systems. The multitude of digital contact points offers a company enormous sales opportunities, but also increases the opportunities for potential internet crime.

What and how do we do it?

Portal (www) Security Audit

An internet portal should work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the entire year. A lack of a working internet portal, even for a couple of hours, can equate to negative financial consequences and a poor corporate image. To prevent this, we carry out comprehensive audits and tests that verify the presence of the following:

  • Injections (XSS, SQL Injection, LDAP Injection, XML Injection, etc.)
  • Session management( Cookies, SSO, CSRF, etc.)
  • Insecure Direct Object References (LFI, RFI, Path traversal, etc.)
  • Security misconfiguration (old, backup and unreferenced files, Admin interfaces, etc.)

Infrastructure and network device security audits

Application security is one thing, the security of the devices being used by the applications is another. However, both are equally important. Security testing includes the scanning of any network device – eg. server, router, firewall, wireless access point – from the Internet or Intranet. In summary, after the test is completed, the client receives a detailed report of device vulnerability and recommendations for repairing those errors and eliminating threats.

Application (iOS/Android/Windows) Security Audits

Mobile applications are playing an increasingly major role in how companies interact with their users. In turn, mobile applications are the closest to the client and their data. During security testing, both server and application components are examined. Also, penetration tests will be conducted in the following areas:

  • Improper Platform Usage
  • Insecure Data Storage
  • Insecure Communication
  • Insecure Authentication and Authorization
  • Insufficient Cryptography
  • Client Code Quality and Code Tampering
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Extraneous Functionality

No matter what kind of product/service you offer your clients, the most important thing is that it’s safe for your business and your users.

There was, are and will always be attacks being carried out by hackers. You can’t avoid them, but you can prevent them from damaging your product/service and your clients’ data.
