Do you have a website or SaaS that processes user data?
Web applications play a fundamental role in organizations. They are complex constructs, mixing various forms of technology, and providing an interactive front for others to use, whether internally or externally. Any website that processes, transmits, or stores data on its site is at risk of damage to business functionality and compromised data.
Our penetration testers mimic the real-world adversaries by scanning the web app’s custom code for any vulnerabilities, interpreting the results, and then attacking the gaps with manual techniques and human intuition.
Partner with an expert to get a custom game plan on what you should test and how to execute your attack simulation. Our penetration testers begin by gaining initial knowledge of your attack surface and infrastructure assets, which reveals a clear path for the engagement.
Experience how your security defenses respond during a simulated cyber attack by an advanced ethical hacker. Our penetration testers will use their expertise and intuition to assess your attack surface and discover any vulnerabilities within your security stance.
After the exploit, our professional writing team will deliver a report that gives insight into any vulnerabilities discovered and expert guidance on how to remediate them. After remediation, our team will retest to assure that you’ve fortified your defenses and attack surface.

How much does a penetration test cost?
Pricing for a penetration test depends on scoping factors, including business applications, technology platforms, physical locations, and other environment aspects. Pricing will coincide with the amount of time needed for the engagement, as well as how many experts are needed to complete it.
What is web application penetration testing?
Web application testing focuses on an organization’s public and internal facing applications. This type of testing is performed to identify any vulnerabilities that could lead to the exploitation of sensitive data.
What does a web application test consist of?
- Application logic flaws
- Forced browsing
- Access and authentication controls
- Session management
- Cookie manipulation
- Horizontal escalation
- Vertical escalation
- Brute-force password guessing
- Poor server configuration
- Information leakage
- Source code disclosure
- Response splitting
- File upload/download attacks
- Parameter tampering
- URL manipulation
- Injection attacks for HTML, SQL, XML, SOAP, XPATH, LDAP, Command
- Cross-site scripting
- Manual tests
What is the penetration testing process?
During penetration testing, our experts gain initial knowledge by researching an organization’s infrastructure assets. They follow a methodology derived from various sources, including the OSSTMM, Information Systems Audit Standards, CERT/CC, the SANS Institute, NIST, and OWASP. After interpreting the results, they will use manual techniques, human intuition, and years of experience to attack the vulnerabilities found. After the exploitation, our professional writing team will send you a comprehensive report with a narrative explaining the testing techniques, vulnerabilities exposed, and guidance for remediation action steps.
How long does a penetration test take to complete?
Every penetration test is different. Depending on the scope of your environment, time spent testing may vary. The average penetration test takes two to three weeks. The entire engagement including kick off, scoping, access and whitelisting, research, attack, report writing, vulnerability remediation, retest, and final report averages around two to three months.
What do I receive when my penetration test is complete?
After a penetration test, our professional writing team will work with your tester to write a comprehensive report with a narrative explaining the testing techniques, vulnerabilities exposed, and guidance for remediation action steps.
How often does a penetration test need to be performed?
For various auditing frameworks the time frames range from every six months to a year. As cybersecurity experts, we know that security is cyclical and suggest a continuous testing approach to testing. Depending on an organization’s level of security maturity, penetration test recurrence could vary.
