Web Apps & Payment Testing & Certification
Web and mobile applications such as ecommerce, social media and voting sites typically allow users to enter and retrieve data online, and are rapidly becoming the interface between the user and the connected devices (IoT) that are rapidly coming to market.
This data is often personal or confidential with access to this data and connected devices needing to be guarded.
But weak security controls can allow hackers to gain access to data, resulting in personal, payment and commercially sensitive data being exposed, with access to connected devices such as children’s toys or home thermostats or entry systems potentially resulting in invasion of privacy or danger to property or even life.
Intertek can support you through the provision of penetration testing or ‘ethical hacking’ of web applications to find the holes before the bad guys do, allowing you to take advantage of the market engagement opportunity’s web apps bring whilst controlling the risks
The service is safe, structured and thorough. Tests are typically performed remotely across the Internet, and you will be provided with a prioritised list of security weaknesses alongside cost effective actions to improve security.
The service is performed by Intertek’s qualified and experienced team of security consultants – human testers and manual techniques emulating real life hacks.
For web sites and networks that accept or store card payment data, vendors must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), as mandated by the major credit card brands including Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
Intertek are approved by PCI DSS to deliver security assessments in line with PCI standards, allowing you to take advantage of the benefits of online payment whilst managing the risks.
