Website Penetration Testing
How secure is your website? Have your developers covered every possible angle? What if there is one hole in you website that could allow an attacker to take advantage of your website and potentially control your site, server and whole networking systems? Thats what our Website Penetration Testing service is for.
A website is only as good and secure as the person developing it and more often than not they do not have a complete understanding of the security implications of basic coding. One simple flaw could mean complete control over your organisations data, website, server, network and in some cases all your visitors systems too.
A website penetration test is a method of evaluating the security of a website by simulating an attack from external threats and internal threats. The process involves an active analysis of the website for any potential vulnerabilities that could result from poor or improper system configuration, both known and unknown hardware or software flaws, or operational weaknesses in process or technical countermeasures.
We perform this from the position of a potential attacker and look find and help secure security vulnerabilities.
Even something as simple as the data contained in your database is a potential target for an attacker, to them it may have email addresses, personal details, passwords and, in some cases, credit card details. Imagine the reputation your company would receive if this kind of data was stolen due to a simple problem that could have been fixed. Companies like the Payment Card Industries (PCI) require systems to be penetration tested when dealing with card data so its certainly not soemthing that should be ignored.
Any security issues uncovered through the penetration test are presented in an informative way, we detail each security issue we find by providing the background of the attack, the scale of threat, the probability, the business impact and the overal risk factor in order to give you the most knowledge possible to help you combat the risks. Where we can, we also provide information on how to help remedy these issues.
Think about it now, what would happen if your website was hacked. How much data could you lose? how many accounts and passwords could be comprimised? how much business would you lose if your site was brought down becuase a hacker found a way in?
