Penetration Testing

Penetration testing is part of the security testing process to automate and discover security issues. Once the threats and vulnerabilities have been evaluated, the penetration testing procedure addresses the risks identified through the environment.

How It Works

Penetration testing can be broken down into multiple phases like planning and reconnaissance, scanning, gaining access, exploitation, evidence collection, and report generation. The penetration testing procedures will vary depending on the organization.

 

Steps in Penetration Testing

MAST

Manual Application Security Testing is done over binary to check for business logic flaws and deep-dive into issues detected in the Vulnerability Assessment phase. It is more elaborate form of testing and takes more time to conclude.

Remediation Call

Remediation Call is a detailed walk-through of findings detected by Appknox Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing. A security researcher speaks with your team to walk them through findings and how to fix those security issues.

Know more about Remediation Call

Once you have completed the Penetration Testing, your team can download the report to remediate security issues. Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing is followed by a Rescan to check if issues are remediated.

At Appknox, we have some of the best industry's brains working behind securing some of the most innovative applications globally.

Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing attempts to identify insecure business logic, security setting vulnerabilities, or other weaknesses that a threat actor could exploit. Transmission of unencrypted passwords, password reuse. Penetration tests do not need to be conducted as often as vulnerability assessments but should be repeated on a regular basis.
