Application Security Assessment is designed to identify and assess threats to the organization through bespoke, proprietary applications or systems. We use the OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) guidelines and the OSSTMM standard to build the assessment checklists. These applications may provide interactive access to potentially sensitive materials. It is vital that they be assessed to ensure that:
- The application doesn’t expose the underlying servers and software to attack(s), and
- A malicious user cannot access, modify or destroy data or services within the system.
Even in a well-deployed and secured infrastructure, a weak application can expose the organization’s information assets to unacceptable risk.
