Web application testing represents an ever-growing area of IT auditing and assessments that need constant attention and new skills. As technology evolves in this area, and more organizations come to rely upon web technologies and associated applications to run their businesses, security is increasingly important. In order to asses these applications, specialized tools for web application vulnerability scanning will assist in finding the majority of vulnerabilities and provide a solid foundation for finding more problems through manual testing.
WebScout's Assessments begins the process of securing your application by mapping out the functionality within it. After each function is detected, we determine how it fits within the application and the organization. We probe the application with various discovery techniques to determine security weaknesses the application exhibits.
After the assessment, our staff review each result-set for accuracy, to remove false positives and negatives, and then summarize the data into a one-page executive summary. This concise summary outlines the most significant areas of concern, giving business executives the information necessary to make business-case risk decisions. The final report also includes a custom report format detailing all of the vulnerabilities discovered during the assessment.
Scout subscriptions are a recurring testing model. During each test, our consultants follow as set of procedures that build upon the previous tests. Our process is as follows:
