Web Application
Security Assessment

Web applications are one of the most exposed parts of your IT infrastructure.

Traditional network based defences like network firewalls, IPS and anti-virus are not designed with web applications in mind. This overlooks the fact that most of todays applications are web based and require access to be given to both trusted and untrusted users in order to do business. DMZ’s can allow users to bypass network defences and launch attacks designed to compromise the company websites, extranets and eCommerce applications.

Why Conduct a Web Application Security Assessment?

Multi-layer web architectures allow deep access into databases and systems. The risk exposure of web applications to the potential for serious data theft and leakage is immense. It is these systems that are now regularly targeted by hackers, as the rewards for compromise are much greater than simply finding weaknesses in the network infrastructure.

Compromise often leads to disruption of web services and breach of commercial and regulatory obligations, leading to lost profits, fines and a damaged reputation for trading securely. Most compliance requirements today stipulate that web infrastructures should be assessed and protected as they are susceptible to a variety of attacks that will lead to data extrusion and compromised web services.
