Our 6-Point Security Check
With Intertek's expertise and experience in developing and guiding software and device security, you will be provided the information you need and the confidence you deserve when developing new software and devices. Our 6-Point Check consists of:
1. Scan according to OWASP Recommendations
We use custom and off-the-shelf automated tools that scan web applications to look for known security vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting, SQL injection, command execution, directory transversal, and insecure server configuration.
2. Review Web Services configuration
We will review and identify the operations of your web service and provide feedback on any vulnerabilities or misconfigurations we find using automated and manual test methods.
3. Review Data Security Logs
During our testing we will work with your team to review and evaluate security logs generated during our tests and provide actionable information on any identified security gaps.
4. Discover potential SQL Injection points
We will identify how your web application works with your database and construct a series of automated and manual simulated scenarios to help identify any potential exploit paths.
5. Validate Security Controls
We will review and verify current security protocols and provide feedback on the current implementation and provide guidance for updated security measures if needed.
6. Recommend remediation steps
Following our tests, we will provide up to three hours of consultation to discuss and train on our findings and potential remediation techniques.
