Web Application Assessment

Identify and Mitigate Web Application Vulnerabilities

Hitachi Systems Security’s Application Assessments help your organization fully understand the vulnerabilities in your applications, whether it’s a public website serving customers, a third-party supplier interface into corporate CRM or even stand-alone applications.

With a Web Application Vulnerability Assessment or Application Penetrating Testing, you will understand your corporate security posture and receive actionable recommendations on how to perform remediation of the vulnerabilities discovered in your environment, including potentially required patches, code changes, access adjustments and more.

Added Value

We identify the feasibility of exploiting vulnerabilities, the impact on success, and how to reduce risk to acceptable business levels. All of this is provided in a flexible reporting structure that is tailored to your specific requirements.

Benefits

  • Priority-based Auditing and Remediation

    Vulnerability, severity and asset criticality information are combined to identify, rank and address web-based applications in the context of your business needs.

    Ensure you are compliant with customer and shareholder requirements, regulations and standards. We can help you comply with major regulations, such as SOX, PCI, NERC/ CIP, SAS70/SSAE16 and ISO.

  • Meaningful Reporting

    We categorize your assessment results’ threat level, business risk and affected assets as well as provide technical narratives to assist remediation efforts, not simply an automated or generic report.

  • Improved Risk Posture

    Decrease security risk exposure related to web applications and reduce potential financial loss through fraud, hackers, extortionists and disgruntled employees.

  • Enhance the Software Development Lifecycle

    Root causes and systemic issues are identified to support future application development initiatives to ensure vulnerabilities are not built into your web applications.
