An application security assessment can be compared with a penetration test, it focuses on the application layer and goes much deeper.
It is carried out by a team of application security experts using a combination of automated tools and manual tests. The assessment’s purpose is to identify vulnerabilities in the application, estimate the probability of them being exploited, and provide a risk profile for the application components.
Drawing on their own knowledge and experience, our assessors exploit logical errors in the application, as well as coding errors, to gain entry. They also consider the potential impact of any problems – and help you find ‘proportionate’ solutions.
