Website & Application Security Testing

More than 70 per cent of all attacks are aimed at the Application layer. This service examines your web applications from coding and implementation flaws through to other issues like SQL injection and cross-site-scripting, involving active exploitation of vulnerabilities.

Security testing is an extremely important – but often overlooked – component of website testing. It’s troubling if your website isn’t intuitively usable, detrimental if it doesn’t function properly, but it can be disastrous if a website isn’t secure. You could expose users’ personal information, inadvertently help hackers spread malicious code or suffer a full take down if you do not properly test your website.

Having a website security check is vital since websites now play a huge role in attracting clients to your business and potential customers want to feel safe while browsing or buying online. Web Application Security Testing should be part of any organization’s risk assessment phase prior to launching live services.

Graytips Website and Web Application security testing service is designed to rigorously push the defenses of internet networks and applications. It is suitable for commissioning, third party assurance, post-attack analysis, audit and regulatory purposes where independence and quality of service are important requirements. We can provide scheduled monthly website penetration testing services to ensure your web presence is secured on an ongoing basis.

A final written report provides an analysis of any security or service problems discovered together with proposed solutions, links to detailed advisories and recommendations for improving the security of the service under test.
