Web Application Testing

Vulnerabilities are uncovered using a series of attacks against your organization's web applications. From reconnaissance to exploitation techniques, our testing teams can identify any risks to be mitigated before an actual breach occurs.

Overlooked Threats

60% of web applications contain at least one critical vulnerability.

While engineers provide great value to organizations, security best practices can often be overlooked. This is why a dedicated team of penetration testers is needed to better strengthen an organization's web application security posture.

As your environment changes, so should your defenses. Continuous Penetration Testing is recommended to help your teams stay ahead of the latest threats facing your organization's web applications.

Danger in the Details

Scanners & code reviews just don't cut it for web application security.

Even with some form of security measure during web application deployments, many vulnerabilities will be deployed and often remain undetected for several months or even years. Cross-site scripting (CSS), SQL injections, and cross-site request forgery (CSRF) occur all the time and can often be difficult to identify during rudimentary security scans.

Using Continuous Penetration Testing on your web applications provides the security and the peace of mind, knowing that the vulnerabilities not detected by scanners or code review will be uncovered by human testers.

Stay Compliant

Remediate effectively & generate on-demand compliance reports.

The Sprocket Portal allows organizations to access real-time data on uncovered vulnerabilities within their web applications. These Findings are used to collaborate during the discovery and remediation processes.

In addition to efficient remediation efforts, the reports created within the Portal can be used to accommodate required regulatory compliances, such as PCI DSS, SOC2, CMMC, and HIPAA.

How It Works

Web Application Testing Methodologies


This involves gathering information about the target web application and its environments, such as the architecture, technologies used, and potential vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability Scanning

The Sprocket testing team utilizes proprietary and commercial-grade scanning software to locate any lurking vulnerabilities across your web application.


Once vulnerabilities have been discovered, testers will perform attacks such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and cross-site request forgery (CSRF).

OWASP & Beyond

Our team will test for vulnerabilities as categorized within the OWASP Top 10. These tests will ensure your web application is not vulnerable to major security risks.

Authenticated Testing

Many features of applications hide behind login forms. Experts will put your authorization and authentication mechanisms to the test, identifying any weaknesses or security issues involved with these business processes.

API Testing

Modern web applications often contain important APIs which can be exploited by threat actors. Testers will use various methods, such as fuzzing, injections, and brute-force attacks to reveal the vulnerabilities that scanners cannot.

Input Validation Testing

Vulnerabilities within input handling are commonly abused by threat actors. Testers will fuzz your web application's inputs to gain unauthorized access or compromise the application's functionality.

Session Management Testing

Poorly managed sessions can lead to sensitive data exposure. The Sprocket team will test session handling and authorization practices currently being used in your application.

Continuous Penetration Testing

Know your threats
when they emerge.

When your environment changes or new threats affect your attack surface, testers perform security testing. You are alerted and assisted in remediation efforts all maintained within the powerful Sprocket Platform.
