Software security provides security for software within a computer or network. Usually, this field implies the security of the environment where Software Applications are running. Moreover, software security is a field where cyber security specialists analyze the workflow of in house application in order to identify and mitigate possible breaches in the application logic (for instance sending unencrypted data over the Internet or Internal Network) or lack of input validation that could help an attacker to do privilege escalation and gain control to the system or confidential data.

The two most common types of security software used for personal computer security are antivirus software (virus protection software) and antispyware software (spyware removal software). These types of software applications combined with proper security testing of the in house developed applications or applications that are used in your daily business process will offer you the assurance that your business sensitive data and your clients data is safe and secure.

Why you need a Vulnerability Assessment and a Penetration Test on a Software Application?

Software security is essential to protect your business against malicious attack and other hacker risks so that your daily operations continue to function correctly under such potential risks. Security is necessary to provide integrity, authentication and availability.

How do these software vulnerabilities affect your customers and business?

If you are targeted by black hat hackers that exploit software vulnerabilities within your corporate network but you are unaware of or are the target of other malicious attacks, your business and customers data is at risk. Your business could suffer from data losses, unplanned downtime of your business process which could lead to severe financial losses.

What are the benefits?

The benefits of software security as a service are plain and simple. You will be able to see the most critical vulnerabilities of your software landscape within your company. This will help you to better understand your company weaknesses and take mitigating actions to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of your company.

Choose the Approach that Match Your Needs

The Bit Sentinel Vulnerability Assessments & Penetration Tests are scaled in order to meet the needs of your business. While security is fundamentally based on people and processes, there are a number of technical solutions to consider when testing security of software applications. At a high level, these solutions include:

Black Box Testing

The Black Box Security Testing assumes no prior knowledge of the application to be tested. This unique approach enables our engineers to test your application from the perspective of an external attacker with zero knowledge of your communication process, applications logic or infrastructure security.The advantages of this type of testing include:

  • The test is unbiased because the designer and the tester are independent of each other.
  • The tester does not need knowledge of any specific programming languages.
  • The test is done from the point of view of the user, not the designer.
  • Test cases can be designed as soon as the specifications are complete.

Our Black Box testing regime is therefore exceptionally able to identify weaknesses in any of your applications workflow points that are accessible online or within a network, including standard web services and in-house application services.

White Box Testing

Also known as glass box, structural, clear box and open box testing. This is a testing technique whereby explicit knowledge of the internal workings of the application being tested are used to select the test data.The White Box Testing starts from a point of complete knowledge of the application & infrastructure to be tested, often including network diagrams, source code, and IP addressing information. Our experienced engineers then use their knowledge of the various elements of the infrastructure to identify the known weak points before conducting a comprehensive audit to identify all other vulnerabilities. The test is accurate only if the tester knows what the program is supposed to do. He or she can then see if the program diverges from its intended goal. White box testing does not account for errors caused by omission, and all visible code must also be readable. For a complete software examination, both white box and black box tests are required.

Grey Box Testing

The Grey Box Testing is a blend of Black Box testing and White Box testing techniques. This multifaceted test results in a comprehensive and highly focused test that cuts down on testing time-frame and budget. Moreover, this approach helps our engineers to learn how your application works and test at both ends whether a suspicious vector of an attack is plausible or not, minimizing False-Positive results.

Our Methodology

The techniques used for the identification and assessment of vulnerabilities is based on the best practices in the field, at international level, including but not limited to: NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Software Security Standard Methodology.
  • Pre-engagement Interactions
  • Intelligence & Information Gathering
  • Threat Modeling (Authentication, Identity, Configuration, Session Management)
  • Vulnerability Analysis (Authorization, Business Logic, Data Validation, Security Management, Errors Handling, Cryptography, Client Side, Input Validation)
  • Exploitation
  • Post Exploitation, Pivoting & Privilege Escalation
  • Reporting & Mitigation
