Making Applications Secure for Enhancing Brand Image

Hexaware’s Application Security Assurance Services focuses on identifying vulnerabilities and reducing risks for applications through customized recommendations and solutions. Our Security Testing services across different industry verticals and enterprises ensure cyber-safety, leading to robust brand image and client retention. Security testing of mobile apps, web apps, API or any other platform can be managed based on coverage of the classes of vulnerabilities identified in the OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) top 10 categories, including the following three areas:

  • Insecure interaction between components
  • Risky resource management
  • Porous defenses

The Web Application Security solutions and Vulnerability Risk Rating will be purely based on the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, risks and business impact to reveal flaws in an information system security to ensure that the application under test protects data and maintains functionality as intended.

Typical security requirements may include specific elements of confidentiality, integrity, authentication, availability, authorization, non-repudiation, compliance, legal requirements and privacy requirements. The various scenarios tested would depend on the system’s security requirements under test and the critical aspects of data, along with the necessary legal and regulatory requirements.

Security Testing Approach

Hexaware’s Web Application Vulnerability Risk Rating is purely based on OWASP Top 10 risks. Additionally, the risk is rated based on business impact.

Hexaware Security Testing Methodology Infographic

Hexaware’s Application Security Assurance team does an extensive analysis of the web application to find vulnerabilities, thereby enabling an organization to effectively prioritize and remediate the vulnerabilities to improve its overall security posture drastically. Our Security Testing Methodology is as illustrated above. Comprehensive tests are carried out to check for security weakness on the devices mentioned in the scope.

Our Security solutions focus on securing different layers as highlighted below:

Application Layer:

  • Attempt to bypass authentication controls
  • Search for sensitive information disclosures
  • Failure to protect resources with strong authentication
  • Failure to implement least privilege authorization policy
  • Client-side injection
  • Improper error handling
  • Information leakage
  • Failure to apply server-side controls
  • Parameter manipulation
  • Backdoor identification
  • Review of Application Log Files

Network Layer:

  • Review data communications functionality
  • Information leakage
  • Parameter manipulation
  • Network transmissions
  • Lack of data protection in transit
  • Secure API calls
  • Secure session management

Static Application Security Testing
