Web Application Penetration Testing


Gibraltars local, regulated Penetration Testing firm.


Web Application Penetration Testing

Your public-facing connected systems are open to the world. On today's internet, over half of all the network traffic is not human. More than 11% of network traffic has a malicious nature. Coupled with 37.2% of all website traffic being bot related, it means you are almost certainly in a state of continual attack.


Why is it important

Our Web Application Penetration Tests identifies vulnerabilities and security weaknesses that attackers use to compromise your web application's security. Maintaining the security of modern and historic web applications is crucial in today's connected world. Traditional firewalls and other security controls bolster your security. However, web applications with poor security were the single most significant cause of data breaches in 2020.

Our Penetration Testing service for your Web Application will help you to:

  • Demonstrate how your web application aligned with the OWASP security controls.
  • Understand where vulnerabilities exist and widespread patterns.
  • Improve access control and find functions that are leaking sensitive data.
  • Improve access, authentication and session management controls.
  • Identify where input validation is failing.


What the test entails

We will perform a penetration test of your web application to identify weaknesses, vulnerabilities and information that would be useful to a hacker. For this test, we will:

  • Help scope your web application to establish the exact extent of the testing exercise.
  • Run a series of automated vulnerability scans against the web application;
  • Perform a range of manual tests closely aligned with the OWASP methodology.
  • Immediately notify you of any critical vulnerabilities to help you take action quickly.
  • Provide you with a detailed report that identifies and explains the vulnerabilities (ranked in order of significance).
  • Include within your test report a list of recommended countermeasures to address any identified vulnerabilities.
