While standard countermeasures and network vulnerability scanners are an important aspect of any information security program, they often only search and detect known vulnerabilities in the operating system, and web servers and can overlook issues specific to web applications.
To properly analyze threats such as cross site scripting (XSS), input validation issues, SQL injection, and authentication attacks, a manual ethical hack from within the application is necessary.
Information security compliance regulations and guidelines (FDIC, FFIEC, GLBA, HIPAA, HITECH, NCUA, OCC, PCI DSS, etc.) require an organization to conduct independent testing of the information security program to identify vulnerabilities that could result in unauthorized disclosure, misuse, alteration, or destruction of confidential information, including Non-Public Personal Information (NPPI).
In order to ensure the security of an organization's external network, best practices state that each organization should perform an external penetration test in addition to regular security assessments. This includes any web-facing application that is exposed to risk.
Our application security testing service determines the strength of your online application security profile and will identify application layer vulnerabilities that may expose sensitive information or allow access to be granted to unauthorized users.
Unlike other providers, our application security testing methodology is applied almost entirely manually – rather than with the use of automated scanners. This allows TraceSecurity expert analysts to find vulnerabilities beyond those found with automated scanning tools.
Our experts test online applications to identify weakness in:
They provide up-to-date security auditing for vulnerabilities such as:
