In today’s progressively virtual corporate world, the World Wide Web has become a new front end for every organization. Furthermore, the internet is increasingly being used to conduct transactions, whether it is with customers, vendors or employees. It is immensely critical that these websites & web-applications be secured against various attacks.
For secure hosting of web application for financial transactions, comprehensive security is needed which includes security in Application Layer and Network Layer and also implementation of necessary controls for ensuring Physical security of information systems. The same is depicted in the diagram below:
As per the industry benchmark which has been created to highlight the greatest and most common vulnerabilities that exist in web applications today; it includes weaknesses like cross site scripting, SQL injection, invalidated inputs, etc. We test applications based on this standard and determine the weaknesses and corrections required to make them secure.
The testing applies from simulating external hacks to the firewall to internal attacks on Web server and www site. The level, type of attack and frequency of testing are tailored to the needs of your organization.
This is achieved through ethical penetration testing from outside (remote) of the identified networks. While most serious vulnerabilities come from within (internally) a networked environment, protection against external attacks is an important aspect to overall system security. This step of the process involves performing a scan – from outside of the identified networks – against the entire public IP range.
