Security Testing Levels

Level 1 - Opportunistic The target is reviewed for easy to discover, easy to exploit weaknesses, such as those found in the OWASP Top Ten, that would be targeted by opportunistic attackers that lack the resources, skills, motivation or time to pursue more difficult vulnerabilities.
Level 2 - Standard The target is reviewed to see if it will withstand most security risks associated with today's software. This level of testing is typically required for most enterprise systems, compliance standards and other platforms that handle sensitive information such as personal or financial data.
Level 3 - Advanced This level is typically reserved for those systems that require the highest level of assurance, where a compromise could result in critical impact. At this level the types of threat are expected to be determined and potentially well-funded. Security testing alone is not sufficient to provide verification and we would look to review the system's architecture, code, management processes and other supporting factors in order to provide deep insight into the system's risk.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our team looks at both user interfaces and application programming interfaces (APIs) to focus on identifying any exploitable vulnerabilities in applications before hackers discover them.

These tests seek to identify expected functionality, reliability, performance, and security. Penetration testing simulates an attack on the application to determine if any security flaws are present in the environment and understand the level of risk.

There are several stages in a thorough application pen testing methodology. While some of the steps can be done with automation, the best penetration testing combines automated and manual techniques — just as highly motivated hackers will do.

To identify critical application-centric vulnerabilities, our testers will first look to gather information about the app and its environment. Next, they will model threats, analyze vulnerabilities, and work to exploit those vulnerabilities. After determining what happens post-exploitation, the testers will provide clear, comprehensive reporting that helps you prioritize the next steps for remediation.

The overall time depends on the size and complexity of the in-scope application(s). That said, most tests take anywhere from one week to four weeks, start to finish.

Almost always the answer is no, due to downtime and/or data loss risks. A recommended approach is to test the application in a non-production environment (e.g., Dev or Staging or QA), and then validate any positive findings in the production environment.

An application or API penetration test can give you valuable insight into the security posture of your application assets so you are able to fix them before hackers are able to cause serious damage by exploiting them.

We get this question a lot and it’s not easy to answer until some level of scoping has been performed. Our scoping process is quick, online, and painless. But overall, the complexity of the application will ultimately determine its cost. For example, when determining the work effort, we take the following into account: dynamic pages, API endpoints, and requests, user roles/permissions, the overall number of pages, etc.

Vulnerability assessments do not involve exploitation while penetration testing goes well beyond a vulnerability assessment and into exploitation and post-exploitation phases.

While cloud and on-premise applications may have different architectures, both can contain vulnerabilities that pose a serious business risk. It doesn’t matter whether it lives under your desk, in your data center, or in the cloud—if an application is used in your business it should be included in your security program.
