High value target for attackers
- A web application is any program that can be accessed through a web server, such as online banking portals, websites managed by CMS, e-commerce websites, etc. As web applications often provide access to sensitive data this makes them high value target for attackers.
- Internet-based applications are globally accessible, making them easily probed.
- If you are going to be attacked, the most common vector is your web application.
What you gain from this testing
- By conducting a penetration test, you’ll receive a thorough understanding of the business risks posed by your web applications.

How Pure Hacking tests
No matter which technique you choose to ensure the security of your web applications, whether it is penetration testing, secure code reviews, deploying a Web Application Firewall, or a combination of all three, you can be assured that Pure Hacking will adopt its web application security verification methodology so that you completely understand the risks posed to your business.
We have developed a comprehensive Web Application Security Verification Methodology that covers:
- Authorisation: Access Control, Session Management, Authentication and Backdoors within code
- Security Configuration: Security Architecture, Error Handling and Logging, Internal Security and Output Encoding
- Data Protection: Communication Security, Cryptography, HTTP Security and Input Validation
Please contact us for more details about what is involved in each web application security assessment.
For added security online, we also recommend a Secure Code Review and deploying a Managed Web Application Firewall such as PureWAF.
