How well do your web applications stand up to present-day attacks?

Applications need regular updates to stay functional and secure. WebScout is designed to assess and identify flaws in your web applications and the risks they may expose within your business. Read on to discover how WebScout will protect your business by keeping your web applications secure.

The Secure Ideas Difference

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 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.

Our Engagement Process

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:

  1. Application Mapping: We start by training our scanner to understand how to authenticate to the application and navigate to the available functionality. This process ensures coverage of application functionality for both legacy architecture and modern single page applications.li>
  2. Vulnerability Scanning: We leverage the latest in industry standard web application security scanners to cover discovery of those common flaws that can be found by automated tools.
  3. Manual Assessment: Our consultants review the results of the previous two steps to remove false positives and to look for issues that automated tools usually miss, such as authentication and authorization issues and logic flaws.
  4. Report: Our consultants create and deliver a report that outlines the findings, an evaluation of their risk, and recommendations on how to remediate each issue.
