Web Application Security

As one of the leading consultants in the field of cyber and application security, SEC Consult offers web application security assessment using current industry standards as one of its core services. This helps companies to assess and, if necessary, improve the security level of their web-based solutions.

Comprehensive Security for Web Applications

Your company is providing web-based applications? As these applications are directly accessible from the public internet make sure that the security state of your web application is protecting you against the latest threats. With the Web Application Pentest SEC Consult validates the effectiveness of your security controls and offers a detailed solution guide on how to remediate discovered vulnerabilities.

Compatible with Current Industry Standards

The web application assessments are conducted according to industry standards like the Web Security Testing Guide (WSTG) by OWASP. This standard builds the base for every assessment, while of course if it is necessary, we will also go the extra mile. This makes the formats of the security assessments predictable while not compromising in coverage or in-depth analysis.

Testing of Web Authentication Protocols

Due to rising security and usability requirements web authentication protocols are becoming more and more sophisticated. Our web security experts have thorough knowledge of current authentication standards like, OAuth 2.0, SAML or U2F/FIDO2 which – when implemented correctly - will significantly raise the bar for attackers.

A security test is a method of evaluating the security of a computer system or network by methodically validating and verifying the effectiveness of application security controls. A web application security test focuses only on evaluating the security of a web application and typically does not include the underlying infrastructure like firewalls, routers or operating systems. The process involves an active analysis of the application for any weaknesses, technical flaws or vulnerabilities. Any security issues that are found will be presented to the system owner, together with an assessment of the impact, a proposal for mitigation or a technical solution
