web application penetration testing

We're accredited as world class cyber security experts

Approximately 30,000 websites are infected with malware every day, with more than 60% of all internet-based attacks launched against web applications.

User facing systems, such as a web application, are the first place a hacker will try to access your data. With our state-of-the-art web application penetration testing, we can provide the protection you need to safeguard your sensitive data, defending you against every conceivable online threat and beating the hackers at their own game.

A web application penetration testing service will identify any risks or vulnerabilities and allow you to take action to protect your business before a vulnerability becomes a breach.

By simulating real-world hacking techniques, our team of cyber security experts will use industry leading penetration testing techniques to systematically target your company’s web applications, identifying any security flaws that a remote hacker might seek to exploit.

We’ll identify any weaknesses within your application(s) and recommend important fixes to keep you and your customers data safe from cyberattacks. With our cutting-edge procedures and techniques, we’ll assess the functionality of your website, pinpoint any failings in your systems. We’ll help you eliminate any potential threats to your business.

Penetration testing services are essential for effective assessment and identification of any and all weaknesses.

Only then can you be assured that malicious cyber criminals cannot gain access.

What is web application penetration testing?

A graphic displaying the web application testing methodology with DigitalXRaid

Web app penetration testing is the process of investigating an organisation’s apps for a thorough assessment of security vulnerabilities.

Web application penetration testing services look at applications, including the gated content, to identify any vulnerabilities that could impact your business.

Once the exploitable security vulnerabilities that could cause a breach are identified, we support organisations to secure them, preventing future cyberattacks.

Our web application penetration testing methodology is closely aligned with the OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project®) Top 10.

We have never conducted a security that didn’t detect at least one vulnerability. Read more about our web application penetration testing examples.

Insecure setup or configuration of networks

Through web application penetration tests, we will attempt to breach your system by looking for weak passwords, open ports, unpatched applications and incorrectly set user privileges.

Incorrect encryption and authentication

Can your WiFi and internet communications be intercepted and decrypted? Article 32 of GDPR in the UK includes encryption as an example of an appropriate technical measure to secure data. Are you encrypting data to a sufficient standard?

Code and command injection

Throughout the web application penetration test, we check that your web forms are built to protect against SQL injection attacks, and find how they behave when someone tries to interfere with them.

Session management

Cookies and sessions tokens are used to make web applications more user friendly, but they can be exploited for malicious purposes, making you vulnerable to attack.

A Guide To Web Application Penetration Testing

A Web Application Penetration Testing Service by DigitalXRaid

All web applications share similar features.

Web applications give businesses the ability to streamline their operations, increasing efficiency and reducing costs, which is why they have been widely adopted. 

Web applications include online forms, spreadsheets, video and photo editing, file conversion, file scanning, and email programs such as Gmail, Yahoo and AOL, as well as packages such as Google Workspace and Microsoft 365. 

We’ve all heard in the news about web applications that have been exploited. Most of the time, these vulnerabilities could have been identified by a full web application penetration test.
