Web Application Vulnerability Assessment (wAVA)

The Psicurity wAVA provides in-depth penetration testing of your application according to industry-standard testing criteria. We use the OWASP ASVS (Application Security Verification Standard) to systematically map the application, and perform penetration tests using both manual and automated techniques. This is not a bulk security scan—We are on a deep dive mission to thoroughly understand your application, and validate each finding to eliminate false positives. We attempt to exploit as many vulnerabilities as possible and thoroughly document the findings along with recommended fixes. A re-test period is included to verify the success of your remediation efforts.

75% of all Internet attacks are targeted at web applications.

Most web applications change over time, and with those changes come new potential vulnerabilities. Recurring application penetration tests help to discover newly introduced vulnerabilities and satisfy compliance requirements such as ISO27001, SOC 2, etc. We are here to help guide our clients to manage the vulnerability surface over time via processes, procedures, and the implementation of secure code and architecture.

According to OWASP: “There are at least 300 issues that affect the overall security of a web application.” Our analysts continue to monitor the changing landscape of web attack methods, ensuring the highest level of review available.

Extensive web application testing is imperative when your data and your customer’s data are at stake. Psicurity’s wAVA helps expose vulnerabilities in your applications for quick remediation, and communicates, to both programmers and management, the details necessary to mitigate this increasing threat.

Our reports are designed to provide meaningful, actional findings that are business relevant in the context of the application. We go the extra mile to understand your application and provide qualitative feedback that will improve the actual security of your application.

The ASVS Difference

How do you know that your pentest was thorough?

Psicurity uses the OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) to systemically test up to 260 controls across 14 domains of criteria. We then document the results for each test so you know what passed and what failed. While the “OWASP Top Ten” is an important awareness tool, it does not provide the level of detail provided by the ASVS standard. Our detailed ASVS methodology ensures that your pentest is thorough and that no corners were cut.
