Organizations strive to protect the confidentiality and integrity of their customers and business partner data on the Web. In addition, regulations require that organizations maintain the proper controls to protect customer against unauthorized access.
The primary objective of a Web application security assessment is to determine whether the implementation and supporting components provide adequate security controls to protect against attacks that aim in gaining unauthorized access to sensitive data or application resources (i.e. databases, operating system). Malicious attacks can occur because Web-based applications often rely on insecure methods to track users, pass data, validate data, perform database queries and maintain sessions.
We have been assisting commercial and government organizations in verifying their security posture of their Web application environment and supporting infrastructure.
