Web-App Pen testing

Web application penetration testing uses manual and automated testing techniques to identify any vulnerability, security flaws or threats in a web application.

Key benefits of Web-App Pen testing

There are several key benefits to incorporating web application penetration testing into a security program.

Satisfy compliance requirements

It helps you satisfy compliance requirements. Pen testing is explicitly required in some industries, and performing web application pen testing helps meet this requirement.

Identifies vulnerabilities

It identifies vulnerabilities. Web application pen testing identifies loopholes in applications or vulnerable routes in infrastructure—before an attacker does.

Assess your infrastructure

It helps you assess your infrastructure. Infrastructure, like firewalls and DNS servers, is public-facing. Any changes made to the infrastructure can make a system vulnerable. Web application pen testing helps identify real-world attacks that could succeed at accessing these systems.

Confirm security policies

It helps confirm security policies. Web application pen testing assesses existing security policies for any weaknesses.

Benefits of Performing with Amigo Cyber Security Web Application Penetration Test?

Companies rely on web applications, APIs, and mobile applications to conduct daily business more than ever. That includes customer-facing applications with functionality to perform automated activities that often use sensitive data like completing a purchase or transferring money from one account to another. Many companies also depend on internal web products to conduct day-to-day business.

Developers may use open-source components and plugins when building these web apps, leaving the door open to a possible cyber-attack. With so many organizations falling victim to these attacks, companies need to go the extra mile to ensure that proper security controls are in place for their software development life cycle and ongoing web app maintenance. Many businesses think that vulnerability scans are sufficient to maintain or improve their security posture. While vulnerability scans can highlight known weaknesses, web application penetration testing shows you how well they would hold up in a real-world attack by unauthorized users.

Manual vs. Automated Application Pen Testing

Very often, automated vulnerability scanners fail to pick up on more subtle security flaws. An experienced assessor will understand the context of the application and may figure out how to abuse its logic. Many of these vulnerabilities are simply not picked up by automated tools. The expert security engineers of Amigo Cyber often make use of vulnerability scanners in the preliminary phases of an application security test, though it is only in the beginning. With a greater understanding of the application’s context, we can provide assessments that are more relevant to your user base and individual security needs.

How is penetration testing performed for web applications?

There are three key steps to performing penetration testing on web applications. Configure your tests. Before you get started, defining the scope and goals of the testing project is important. Identifying whether your goal is it to fulfil compliance needs or check overall performance will guide which tests you perform. After you decide what you’re testing for, you should gather key information you need to perform your tests. This includes your web architecture, information about things like APIs, and general infrastructure information.

Execute your tests. Usually, your tests will be simulated attacks that are attempting to see whether a hacker could actually gain access to an application. Two key types of tests you might run include External penetration tests analyze components accessible to hackers via the internet, like web apps or websites.

The internal penetration test simulates a scenario in which a hacker has access to an application behind your firewalls. Analyze your tests. After testing is complete, analyze your results. Vulnerabilities and sensitive data exposures should be discussed. After analysis, needed changes and improvements can be implemented.

Why your Web Applications should be Penetration Tested

Not only does Penetration Testing find loopholes in your information security systems. It also tests the efficacy of your security policies and procedures.


Test your People

Penetration tests give information security staff gain experience in dealing with a potential breach. When conducted without prior notice, it will determine how well your policies are being implemented. They’ll tell you if your employees need more awareness or training in procedures to safeguard organizational information.


Test your Policie

Penetration tests reveal any flaws in your security policy. Some organizational policies, for instance, focus on preventing and detecting attacks but have no proper stance on dislodging an ongoing attack. In this situation, a penetration test will show if your security personnel are not equipped to remove a hacker from your system in time to prevent significant damage.


Prioritize your security Spends

By revealing the weakest links in your web applications, penetration testing reports help you prioritize your security spending. The reports allow web application developers to identify mistakes and train towards programming perfection. When developers see how the hacker was able to break into their application, they can code stronger, more secure web applications.


Our Web Pentest Methodology

Amigo Cyber follows a well-defined, repeatable procedure. This definition is prioritized in each interaction to ensure that our evaluation is accurate, repeatable, and of the highest possible standard. As a result, the team will double-check our results before and after the remediation. The measures below will help us achieve these results.


Define Scope

Amigo Cyber establishes a specific scope of the client before a web application evaluation can take place. To create a comfortable framework from which to evaluate, open contact between Amigo Cyber and the client organization is encouraged at this point.
The organization’s applications or domains will be scanned/tested. Define any exclusions (specific pages/subdomains) from the evaluation. Determine the official testing date and time zones.


At this stage, we incorporate automated scripts and tools, among other tactics in more advanced information gathering. Any potential attack vectors are thoroughly examined by the Amigo Cyber Pen Testing Team. The data gathered at this stage will serve as the foundation for our exploration in the next phase.
Counting directories and subdomains.
Checking for possible misconfigurations in cloud services.
Linking known security vulnerabilities to the application and related services.

Attack and Penetration

The Team of Amigo Cyber uses a variety of OSINT (Open-Source Intelligence) tools and techniques to gather as much information as they can about the target. As the engagement progresses, the data gathered will assist us in better understanding of the organization’s operating conditions, allowing us to accurately assess risk. The following are some examples of targeted intelligence:

PDF, DOCX, XLSX, and other files leaked by Google.

Previous breaches/credential leaks.

Revealing forum posts by application developers.

Exposed robots.txt file.


The assessment process comes to a close with reporting. Amigo Cyber analysts collect all of the information collected to provide a lengthy, concise report to the customer. The report starts with a high-level breakdown of the overall risk, highlighting both the application’s protective systems and logic’s strengths and weaknesses. We also include strategic recommendations to assist business leaders in making informed application decisions. We break down each vulnerability in technical detail later in the report, including our testing process and remediation steps for the IT team, resulting in a straightforward remediation process. We go to great lengths to ensure that each rep is successful. We go to great lengths to ensure that each report is clear and easy to understand.

Remediation Testing

In addition, upon request from the client, Amigo Cyber can revisit the evaluation after the client organization has patched the vulnerabilities. We would ensure that the reforms have been fully incorporated and that the possibility has been minimized. The previous appraisal will be revised to reflect the more stable status of the submission.
