Recently, web applications are among the most frequently used forms of software who tend to be exploited using relatively simple vulnerabilities in order to gain access to private data. Even the most popular and said to be the most secure applications are also the vulnerable, attackers rely on their secure reputation and develop easy and simple exploits to access a company’s cloud storage, internal executive level management information and redistribution of internal data.
In many cases, vulnerabilities leading to successful compromise of the system are completely ignored by conventional and automated testing methods.
The service combines both automated and manual means of testing (the latter being carried out with priority). In order to identify the potential attack surface, a reconnaissance is performed. This phase is part of the penetration testing methodology which includes the following stages:
