Web apps comprise all your applications accessed via web browser; this means that if your company website uses a public web browser, any specific private networks or interfaces such as APIs, you are vulnerable to regularly evolving attacks and would benefit significantly from a web application pentest.
We understand that applications such as your websites, online ecommerce platforms and all your third-party software are essential to the day to day running of your business, so the security and integrity of this infrastructure is critical. However, many of these interfaces are design led with usability in mind, often leaving their security to take a back seat.
Bear in mind that these applications are likely communicating directly with your internal databases, so there’s always a route into your most sensitive data from the perspective of a malicious attacker.
It is for these very reasons we always advise testing from the development stages of your web apps right through to the deployment stage, to ensure you are fully secure along the way.
