What is a web application security audit?
A web application security audit allows us to verify the resistance level of your application to a hacker attack. Due to the audit, you will learn the gaps in defense mechanisms and you will receive the extensive instructions on how to eliminate them and improve the overall web application security level. It is well known that due to hacker attacks the company may face damaging financial and image losses. Web application security audit will minimize the risk that the attempt of manipulating your application by hackers will succeed. Our security audit bases among others on OWASP ASVS methodology. In that way you may be sure that your web application (store, marketplace, SaaS platform type etc.) was tested according to a global cybersecurity standard.
What are the benefits of an audit? Is it worth it?
A trust is a fundamental currency which will help you to earn the customer’s loyalty. If you betray your customer’s trust by exposing their data to a leakage, it will greatly increase the likelihood of giving up your services in favor of the competition. Also, unsatisfied customers will share the adverse opinion with their friends. Web application audit helps to avoid such situations. What is more, you will learn and eliminate the vulnerabilities that jeopardize your application for attacks as well as you for friendly rapport with customers.
