Our software penetration testing services simulate a cyber attack and use malicious techniques to assess your software’s defenses. The test reveals security deficiencies before an attacker does and shows you concrete ways to fix them.
Don’t let your company fall victim to malicious actors. Let Xact IT Solutions set up proper defenses for your enterprise.
The most important part of your executive report is the recommendations, so you can execute concrete action to fortify your software. In addition, you can easily cascade the results of the pen test to your dev team.
We conduct the following software penetration testing styles:
A black box test simulates a cyber attack by an unprivileged hacker with no inside knowledge of the software.
A grey box test simulates a cyber attack by a hacker with limited knowledge of the software. Knowledge is usually limited to login credentials.
A white box test simulates a cyber attack by a privileged hacker with full knowledge of software and its architecture.
The recommendations portion of the executive reports is a critical source of actionable data. You and your dev team can use this information to improve your application’s security.
Our pen testers are trained in the exploration and infiltration techniques that sophisticated hackers do. We use extensive cybersecurity knowledge to uncover software deficiencies. It ensures protection for your web applications from ever-evolving scams.
You might have the best dev team building your web application, but it still needs a fresh set of eyes to seek out security gaps. The Xact IT Solutions team knows existing and emerging cyber threats, and we leverage this vast threat intelligence to mimic a cyber attack methodically.
We customize our software pen tests to the needs of your business. Different web applications have varying requirements, depending on possible attack vectors. We work with you to strategize the right pen test for your software.
Aside from software penetration testing services, Xact IT Solutions offers other reliable cybersecurity services, like network penetration testing, ransomware response plans, cyber incident response services, and more
Xact IT Solutions performs pen tests for companies that have proprietary software or use software from third parties. We work with businesses in:
Technically, yes, a firm can perform a pen test on its own. However, there are merits to outsourcing software penetration testing. First, if you’re fulfilling the requirements of a security standard, then it’s better to hire professionals who are well-versed in these security obligations.
Second, a certified pen tester is trained to simulate existing cyberattacks and emerging cyber threats. With a database of threat intelligence, Xact IT Solutions is equipped to put your systems to the ultimate test.
We test different applications that users access, like shopping carts, online forms, and administrative consoles. Get in touch with our team to discuss the software you want to test.
Depending on the scope of the project, a software penetration test can take 1 to 3 weeks. Factors that affect the timeline include the number of web apps to be assessed, the type of software, the number of input fields, and more. Our team will give you an estimated timeline during the strategy session.
You don’t have to make special preparations for a software penetration test. After all, the goal is to evaluate its security in its current state. However, our team needs robust information to prepare the pen test — details will be explained during our consultation.
We can’t provide a blanket fee for software penetration testing services because the cost depends on several factors, like the scope of the testing, the number of web apps to be assessed, and more. Please reach out to our team for an estimate for your specific project.
