A key goal of testing exploits (whether they are on embedded systems, web applications, networks, or even against humans) is determining how easy and impactful successful exploits are against target networks, systems, and applications. Whitehats in today’s industry can often become more enamored with the hunt versus improving technique and truly understanding impact or attack viability as part of a broader threat context. VerSprite’s Application Security Services (AppSec) group focuses on emulating cybercrime and simulating test scenarios that not only reflect current attack patterns, but also threat motives. Our group also focuses on integrated security testing to help organizations integrate AppSec initiatives sooner within a given SDLC process.
From the following range of services, reach out to us so we can customize an engagement model that fits.
Mobile applications are being deployed each and every day with a trove of vulnerabilities that find their roots in the lack of proper security assessments. VerSprite recognizes that mobile technologies are leading the future in enterprises and small businesses alike. We offer exclusive security services for Mobile Application Penetration Testing, Source Code Review, and Threat Modeling. Let us help secure and protect your application, product, and image.
To accurately and thoroughly assess the security of a web application requires not only a combination of automated and manual testing, but an understanding of the software behind the application. Gathering comprehensive information through reconnaissance and analyzing it effectively does not stop at running tools. Having a background in a wide variety of technologies leads to efficient use of attack vectors and successful security assessments.
The status quo of “breaking things” is broken. Inconsistent methodologies, tool led approaches, and poorly scoped tests are coming up short in true risk mitigation. Most discouraging is that some of the largest organizations continue to subscribe to these approaches as part of their AppSec initiatives. If you are looking to achieve deeper results, supported by well-founded application threat models, you’ve found your security partner in VerSprite.
Our AppSec Approach
Examples of integrated, threat-based application security testing include:
Look Ma’ No Tools
Tools are great for breadth, but they dull the senses when getting behind the wheel of exploitation. Our team codes techniques to better enumerate, fuzz, and reverse application components in scope. We emulate cyber-criminal intent far beyond the bounties and traditional pen testing groups.
Application Threat Models
What are you testing for? Our tests fit into a bigger picture of an application threat model that encompasses not only app components, frameworks, and use cases, but also threat motives, architecture, deployments, actor permission sets, and more.
Still pen testing like its 2005 (post-development, post-implementation)? VerSprite provides cost effective unit security testing to mirror client SDLC methodologies to find things within the dev process and build remediation in sooner.
A Better, Consistent Craft
Our team stays hungry, never resting on a ‘standard’ set of techniques. Attack patterns change, as does our team’s craft. Consistency is also important as we pride ourselves in ensuring that our peer review process in every facet of our approach leverages ideas and skill sets of a collective team.
