Application Penetration Testing

Our application security testing services identify, validate, and prioritize vulnerabilities in your web, mobile, thick, and virtual applications.

Application Penetration Testing

Get Ahead of a Breach

Your most important applications deserve expert penetration testing. NetSPI’s dynamic application security testing experts leverage highly specialized tools, custom testing setups, and ethical hacking techniques to find and exploit application security gaps, and prioritize the most important vulnerabilities.

Web Application Penetration Testing

NetSPI identifies vulnerabilities in the network, system, and application layers of a web application that allow us to escalate user privilege, manipulate data, and gain access to restricted functionality or data. We manually verify all exploitable and significant vulnerabilities.

During our web application penetration testing service, NetSPI evaluates your web application for security vulnerabilities, and provides actionable guidance for remediating the vulnerabilities and improving your organization’s application risk posture.

Mobile Application Penetration Testing

NetSPI identifies vulnerabilities in your mobile application infrastructure that make your organization susceptible to an external or internal threat.

NetSPI pentests your mobile applications on Android and/or iOS for vulnerabilities. We evaluate the target application from the perspective of both anonymous and authenticated users and manually test for security controls in four essential areas: file system, memory, network communications, and GUI.


Thick Client Application Penetration Testing

NetSPI uses multi-vector testing to identify vulnerabilities within interactive and headless thick client applications deployed on Windows, Linux/Unix, and macOS. NetSPI’s approach to thick application penetration testing includes reviewing server-side and client-side controls, data communication paths, data storage, and authorization/authentication best practices.

For applications that are hosted, or use cloud services, NetSPI has an additional set of tests to ensure the application deployment and cloud environments are secure.

Virtual Application Penetration Testing

During virtual application penetration tests, NetSPI identifies the risks specific to applications published through virtualization platforms along with traditional application testing to help ensure that your company is staying safe while adapting to evolving business needs.

During virtual application breakout assessments, NetSPI identifies vulnerabilities that provide unauthorized access to the operating system through applications published via virtualization platforms like Citrix and VMware.
