Pen Test & Secure Code Review

How big is your cyber-attack surface?


The cyber-attack surface is expanding and increasingly complex to keep under control.  Corporate websites, e-commerce platforms, web services, back-office and back-end systems, infrastructure & networks, and other specific components such as industrial smart devices and Internet of Things (IoT)… these can be the weakest link and exploited at any time.

Hacks and other cyber threats often cause havoc for businesses. Some 84% of security breaches exploit vulnerabilities at the application layer, while almost 79% of applications contain at least one critical or high vulnerability. To be sure that your mobile or web applications are protected from hackers, and thus your business and customer data, your application security testing must be comprehensive.


Our solutions


We offer comprehensive and complementary solutions to Application Security Testing. These must be considered in different cases, early or later in your Secure Software Development LifeCycle (S-SDLC), from the outside in or from the inside out, with or without knowledge of your technologies and resources (‘White-Box’ versus ‘Black-Box’ approach).

 

Secure Code Review

Vulnerability Assessment

Penetration Test

Red Teaming

  • ‘White box’ security testing
  • Manual code review combined with automated code scanning
  • Finds vulnerabilities earlier in the SDLC
  • Less expensive to fix security gaps
  • Covers the languages used by developers
  • ‘One-and-done’ or repetitive as part of the SDLC
  • ‘Black box’ security testing
  • Manual review of vuln. scan results
  • Finds vulnerabilities when the application is in prod. (or just before)
  • Can discover run-time and environment-related issues
  • Only for web applications and web services
  • ‘One-and-done’ or repetitive as part of the SDLC
  • ‘Black box’ security testing
  • In-depth manual pen test using the same techniques and resources as real hackers do
  • Before a major release or a new business-critical application is put in prod.
  • Involves the target application and the environment around it
  • ‘One-and-done’ or repetitive as part of the SDLC
  • Red Team approach
  • Perform once a year or once every two years for your organization
  • Finds vulnerabilities in a broader scope including your people and physical environment

Performing comprehensive application security testing brings significants benefits


You can be confident of transparency and control on the actual security protection of your applications, thanks to the performance of regular vulnerability assessments, plus independent manual penetration tests and secure code reviews.

The objective is to detect and fix a maximum of vulnerabilities, in order to make attacks much harder (or impossible), and to simultaneously raise the level of security awareness.

Your benefits are:

  • Prevention of damage to your company’s reputation and customer confidence, and avoiding business disruptions.
  • Saving substantial money that would otherwise be lost in potential data breaches, losses and frauds.

Why Approach?


Our Application Security Testing solutions fit perfectly in the holistic vision for Secure-by-Design applications. It can be seamlessly integrated, almost ‘plug and play’, into your development lifecycle process.

We adopt the best approach for your environment, risk profile, resources and budget. Whether you need a ‘one-and-done’ test or regular testing of your current application landscape, it’s entirely up to you. We cover a large scope of technologies, including (cloud) infrastructure & network components, application type (web, mobile, API's and specific devices such as IoT.

Because the best results always come from testing that combines technology-based review, human review and awareness, we are never content to rely on quickly generated findings from automated tools.

We provide technical support to assist with our test results. We work closely with your teams and partners to address security gaps and increase the level of awareness. We test and retest again until all critical vulnerabilities are fixed.

A Penetration Testing Certificate can be delivered to demonstrate that thorough testing has been performed by a reputable third party.

Our Certified Ethical Hackers (certificates CEH, OSCP, etc.) follow the best methodologies and standards from the OSSTMM (Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual) and the OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project). They are members of a community of experienced and bright security researchers and they regularly contribute to bug bounty platforms such as Intigriti.

Thanks to our unique combination of expertise in security and development and our partnership with the best Application Security Testing tool providers, Approach is a leading partner of choice.
