Application penetration testing
Whilst each particular discipline requires its own bespoke methodology, the underlying security concerns are similar for all. It is vital to ensure that only authorised users can access the application, that all users are tightly controlled such that they can only access the intended information / functions and that any locally stored information is secure.
Applications cannot be tested on a one-size fits all basis and therefore each test is conducted on a bespoke basis to ensure that the scope, approach and time scales are appropriate for the intended target. The accumulated experience of Portcullis’ penetration testing team means that whatever the application is, however it is presented, whatever technologies are involved, Portcullis has the expertise to deliver.
Portcullis can conduct application testing under the auspices of the CESG CHECK or CREST schemes.
For organisations struggling to reliably deliver applications that meet security expectations, Portcullis offers a secure application coding training course and consultancy to support a secure development life- cycle.
Why perform a application penetration test?
- Application penetration testing are performed to identify potential or realised weaknesses as a result of inadvertent mis-configuration, weak authentication, insufficient error handling, sensitive information leakage etc.
