stSoftware uses a comprehensive penetration testing methodology to assess the security of websites / web applications and identify security risks.

What is Penetration testing? (Pen Test)

A penetration test is an authorised attempt to gain access to an organisation's data assets. Its purpose is to identify vulnerabilities so that they are identified and rectified before any potential cyber attack. 

The testing process is done in four stages:

  • Gathering Information about targets (reconnaissance) 
  • Identifying and prioritising vulnerabilities 
  • Exploiting identified vulnerabilities to determine risk levels 
  • Providing executive level reporting and actionable remediation strategies 

Our methodology is based on OWASP and OSSTMM recommendation. Various tools and techniques are used to discover the vulnerabilities within the target web application. Each application is manually audited by an experienced penetration tester. The audit seeks to identify not just common classes of security vulnerabilities, but also vulnerabilities specific to the application itself.

stSoftware's penetrations testing services include:

 
Website Penetration Testing
 
Web Application Penetration Testing
 
Mobile Application Penetration Testing
 
Scanning for Web & Network Vulnerabilities
Penetration Testing Methodology and Tools

stSoftware has a tried and tested, penetration testing methodology based on industry best practices such as the OWASP and the OSSTMM. This ensures that you receive reliable, repeatable results, and minimizes the risk to your systems under test.

Our team uses an arsenal of penetration testing tools similar to those used by attackers on the internet – in conjunction with in-house developed, commercial, and best-of-breed open-source penetration tools.

We produce a comprehensive business risk focused penetration testing report covering the approach taken, the techniques used, and the vulnerabilities identified. We then apply our expertise to make prioritized, procedural and strategic recommendations to ensure that your systems are secure against future attack.

Vulnerability Management and Protection 

Our penetration testing service can be provided as a one-off assessment, or on an ongoing basis.

You can leverage our security expertise to provide you with automated, continuous, cost effective, vulnerability management protection where we work with you to develop a recurring vulnerability assessment program for different segments of your environment.

With a recurring program, we can highlight current exposures in a timely fashion, and provide you with trending data that allows you to monitor the progress of your IT security initiatives over time

The Benefits of Penetration testing includes:
  • Achieve compliance for industry standards such as PCI DSS and others
  • Avoid potential high costs and reputation damage due to data breach and data lost
  • Receive an Independent Comprehensive report with actionable recommendations
  • Gain confidence that your websites, web app, mobile app and networks are secure
