Web Application Penetration Testing

Application penetration testing is primarily a technical security assessment of the application which focuses on discovering security mis-configurations and logic flaws in the application and associated services.  The majority of the assessment is based around consultants using the application in the same way an end user would, however the primary goal is to assess the application for potentially insecure functionality that could lead to compromise of the application, any associated data or other application users.

As well as common place attacks against session management, authentication and input validation systems, Modux consultants work to assess technology and application language specific functionality. Modux prides itself on having in depth knowledge of the wide ranging technologies used within web development and application stacks.

Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Technical security assessments against network elements and associated infrastructure ordinarily consist of automated discovery and enumeration phases, followed by manual assessment and verification stages. Services are assessed for vulnerabilities and security misconfigurations that could be potentially be leveraged to cause data loss, damage or disruption across an organisation.
Often low risk security findings can be chained together leading scenarios that allow for data exfiltration or denial of service from the environment. As such Modux perform every assessment based on an understanding of the environment, its day to day uses and the risks that the organisation may face. This helps us fully evaluate the context of any discovered security weaknesses which allows our client organisations to properly digest the risks.
