Several types of applications exist in this world. These applications hold data that is important to businesses and their customers. If these applications are not secure enough, then they could be compromised and the data held within them could get stolen, and hence, a huge amount of damage could occur.
Securing applications, whether they are connected to the internet or not, should be one of the highest priorities of any organisation as there is always a risk of an adversary trying to get their hands on critical and sensitive data. Applications can have one or several security flaws at any given time. Even if an application seems to have no weaknesses, there is a chance that there might be a zero-day vulnerability present in the application. This keeps companies on their toes, and a lot of them struggle to secure their applications in time. We, here at Precise Testing Solution, can help you relieve your stress by testing your applications, and making them secure. We will make sure that the threat actors remain where they belong, i.e. away from your application and its data.
We test applications for security flaws by using dynamic and static application security testing techniques. When testing an application using dynamic application security testing (DAST), our testers will perform security tests to find security weaknesses while the application will be running. In this type of testing, the testers use black-box testing methods to seek out security flaws just like adversaries would. If the application sends and receives network traffic, then we will also analyse the network traffic, and check if there are any security issues.
During static application security testing (SAST), the testers will use the latest tools and techniques to find vulnerabilities in the application’s source code. The testers will use white-box techniques to examine your applications. We will analyse the source code of your applications to check whether secure functions have been used, whether the application has been programmed using secure programming techniques, etc. Static application security testing is available for applications written in specific programming languages. Our specialists will test for all software errors listed by MITRE. Whether it be internet connected or non-internet connected applications, we test them all.
Our company utilises open-source tools to test the target applications. Here is a list of some of the tools that we use to test an application:
