The main objective of this test is to identify high impact vulnerabilities within your sites and networks, which could lead to exploits, data theft, and scaling privileges. Application penetration testing follows a method destined to simulate real life attacks and threats that could have a critical impact on a company’s data privacy, integrity, and overall reputation.
Our tests usually follow a black-box approach, which means Security Signal will not have any knowledge about the application’s environment or architecture before beginning the test. The intrusion then, is performed practically in a real-world scenario, simulating the way an actual attacker would work.
Other types of testing are gray-box (a minimal amount of information is provided by the client before beginning the test), and white-box (static code review is done before penetration testing).
