Building Resilience with Security Testing

In the age of cloud, social media, and data-driven applications, security cannot be an afterthought. It needs to be introduced early on in the software development cycle to successfully meet the challenges of the digital age.

Security testing at QBurst aims to identify and mitigate risks in the developed software in order to deliver a safe, secure experience to users. It enables enterprises to get to market with robust applications that build trust and loyalty with the brand.

Types of Security Tests Done

Static Application Security Testing (SAST)

SAST involves testing an application by examining its source code. The source code analysis helps detect bugs early on in the software development life cycle. Clubbing manual code review with automated analysis using tools, such as OWASP Orizon, allows us to improve efficiency and ensure conformance to coding standards.

Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)

Dynamic analysis examines the application in the running state. It involves simulating attacks against the application and analyzing its reaction to uncover vulnerabilities. Typically, DAST is used for web applications and web services and parameters like CPU usage, memory usage, response time, and overall performance are validated.

Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT)

Security testing at QBurst consists of two components—vulnerability assessment and penetration testing. While vulnerability scanners and assessment tools identify vulnerabilities in the application, they do not differentiate between flaws that can be exploited and those that cannot be. Penetration testing exploits the vulnerabilities and measures the severity of each.

Vulnerability assessment together with pentest provides a comprehensive picture of the system’s security posture, identifying weaknesses along with risks associated with each.

Recommendations for Security Audit

Recommendations for Security Audit

  • Introduce security early on in your software development cycle—adopt DevSecOps.
  • Use a combination of manual and automated testing practices.
  • Base your audit methodology and processes on industry standards.
  • Choose your ethical hackers after stringent background verification.
Security Posture Assessment

4 Stages of Our Security Audit Process

Exploratory Assessment

Exploratory Assessment

Meticulously study the application, its functionality, business purpose, user base, and code. With a thorough understanding of your system, our security testers are better able to identify edge cases that potential attackers might exploit.

Threat Profile Creation

Threat Profile Creation

Identify users and group them by threats posed. Building custom threat profiles for internal and external users performing both inadvertent mistakes and malicious attacks helps categorize risks based on impact and prioritize your defense mechanisms.

Test Plan and Execution

Test Plan and Execution

Create a security test plan to assess system vulnerability. We pen test to check if threats identified can be exploited to compromise the system and rank the vulnerabilities according to the potential harm it can inflict on your business.

Reporting Security Test Results

Reporting Security Test Results

Prepare a report detailing the vulnerabilities identified and prioritized by their impact on the system along with countermeasures to reduce risk. Our security testing report gives managers a comprehensive view of application security with actionable items for developers.
