Security Testing Services
Information technology has become part of the life of a modern person and business. Companies work with various programs and services that contain and process the personal data of customers and employees. Therefore, the issue of data and information systems security is on the first place for any business.
Companies try to protect their information systems in many ways, including network security, passwords, authentication, anti-virus protection, etc. But no security systems can guarantee complete reliability against hacker attacks. Therefore, security testing is a mandatory step in any IT project.
This process helps to identify weaknesses in information systems that can be exploited to access data or steal confidential information and assess the level of data protection against three critical aspects of security - confidentiality, integrity, and data availability.
Based on the results of testing, documentation, and reports are created to indicate the vulnerabilities found, risks, and recommendations for their elimination or mitigation. In addition, it is proposed that verification be reviewed and confirmed in the future or compensatory measures are taken to improve software security testing.
Software Security Testing Services
Our team currently provides a variety of security testing services, each with its own benefits and areas covered.
With this method, QA engineers conduct a detailed analysis of the network and systems from the point of view of a potential attacker. They simulate cyberattacks to identify security weaknesses, which helps assess risk and improve application resilience against real threats. The essence of the check is an authorized attempt to circumvent the existing protection of information systems. As a result, using different methods and tools, we can determine how mechanisms respond to intrusion.
This method is aimed at finding and eliminating gaps in the system by QA specialists, through which an attacker can penetrate and steal critical data. It consists of scanning the system with special programs, checking code or settings manually, prioritizing vulnerabilities, and developing a plan to eliminate or mitigate them. This approach makes the system more secure and protected from attacks.
It is a method of testing the system by QA analysts for compliance with safety standards and regulations to protect against external and internal threats, which helps to identify weaknesses in security policies and processes and make recommendations for improvement. It includes document analysis, staff interviews, system testing, risk assessment, and report of findings and proposals.
Using this quality control method, QA engineers analyze the potential risks and threats of the system. They then develop mitigation strategies and measures to assess and prioritize remedial action. This process may include identifying assets, vulnerabilities, threats, and controls, analyzing the impact of activities, calculating risk levels, and developing a risk mitigation plan.
Information security training is a type of education aimed at increasing the knowledge and skills of employees, IT professionals, and other stakeholders on how to protect themselves and their organizations from cyber threats.
Types of Security Software Testing
Security Testing has various types and approaches that allow you to check different aspects of the security of information systems. The main types include the following:
Penetration testing is an attack simulation performed by our QA security experts. In this way, we can identify vulnerabilities and demonstrate their possible consequences. In addition, an "ethical hacker" can use other types of testing (data collection, network analysis, vulnerability scanning) to conduct a final attack, use various methods and tools to penetrate the system, and test its resistance to cracking. This test helps developers improve the quality and reliability of their products and prevent data leakage or damage.
Traffic Interception Testing - this is a test method that checks the encryption level of the traffic. In addition, our security QA engineers can use special tools like WireShark to intercept traffic and examine its contents. The purpose of such testing is to confirm that the data transferred between different system components is reliably protected from viewing and modification by unauthorized persons.
This type of scanning is discovering, analyzing, and reporting vulnerabilities and flaws using automated tools. Our QA specialists use it to test applications from the external or internal point of view. External scanning does not require credentials. Internal requires signing in with a specific set of credentials and is conducted from the perspective of a trusted user and can detect more vulnerabilities, such as weak passwords, misconfigurations, or outdated software. The continuous scanning process can be customized using existing tools and custom solutions, giving confidence that your application and users are protected.
This test method evaluates the compliance of a system or application with specific safety standards such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, ISO 27001, and others. This check shows how well the system meets the requirements of safety standards and identifies any irregularities or deficiencies.
Such testing will check the separation of access between users and system roles, the correctness of setting access policies, as well as checking the effectiveness of authentication and authorization mechanisms.
This testing method allows you to assess the system's resistance to high loads. A DoS attack is usually performed by a single host, a network. While DDoS attacks are more powerful and are carried out by botnets from all over the world. The purpose of such testing is to identify and eliminate weak points in system performance and develop measures to increase its reliability.
