What is an Application Security Assessment?

As cyber-attacks increasingly focus on application-layer disruptions, the importance of application security has never been more vital. Weak application security represents significant control deficiencies that can potentially compromise sensitive data, reporting, and regulatory compliance.

Web Application security assessment is a unique area of assessment and penetration testing that analyzes the security of your organization’s internal and public-facing applications, APIs, and mobile apps. Unlike infrastructure-based assessments, the methodology utilized by WCG for identifying security vulnerabilities and significant issues is dependent upon the type of web or mobile application being assessed. Although several methodologies do exist, they are often not versatile enough to cope with the wide variety of custom applications commonly encountered.

Key Benefits of Application Security Assessment Services include, but are not limited to:

  • Provide improved security posture and compliance so your company meets the needs of industry standard practices
  • Provide management for safety and security of sensitive information for your company and your users
  • Ongoing monitoring and management to keep your company secure and compliant
  • Make sure your app is compliant with cybersecurity laws.

How will WCG help you?

WCG’s application security assessment services help organizations determine whether your off-the-shelf or custom application software contains vulnerabilities that can be exploited. WCG’s Application Security Assessment Services evaluate your application’s security in these ways:

  • Identifies and evaluates hosting platforms for your applications
  • Reviews application origins and access control settings
  • Tests passwords policies, rules, and other critical settings for injection vulnerabilities
  • Evaluates secure protocols, encryption, and configuration management

We evaluate applications to minimize the risk of information leakage, authentication and session management breaches, spoofing, impersonation, command injections and denial of service attacks. The web application security assessment also determines whether the software behaves and interacts securely with its users, databases, and other applications.
