Security Testing


We keep you out of the headlines

At QA Consultants, we go to great lengths to make certain your software, web applications, enterprise systems, and data is not only secure but functional. In the current climate, it’s not enough to be prepared in case your security is attacked but rather when it is attacked. As technology advances, so do the creative approaches to infiltrating systems. Our top security experts understand the attacker mindset to identify any and all vulnerabilities and potential methods of attack. We will make sure your needs are met to the highest degree because we understand that today’s security risks are simply too great to be just a checkmark.

QA Consultants’ security testing group provides application security and vulnerability testing services to ensure that your application is secured from both internal and external threats. Our Security Practice was introduced to the market in 2014 and has consistently become one of the most significant contributions and growing ever since. This unit is delivering Security Testing primarily in the form of DAST + SAST testing for both Application Security and Infrastructural Security. Most client environments are either legacy based (dated) or digitally based (new). These two domains of Application Security Testing require a very unique set of expertise unrelated to traditional e.g. Pen test providers. Cybersecurity breaches are happening as a direct result of poorly constructed applications that lack quality and governance critical to mitigating the risk of being breached due to vulnerabilities in the code design.

Typical application attack vectors addressed:

  • Authentication Attacks
  • Brute force, common passwords, etc.
  • System Dependency Attacks
  • Corrupt or missing files, third-party components, etc.
  • Input Attacks
  • SQL injections, buffer overruns, etc.
  • Design Attacks
  • Unprotected internal APIs, alternate code paths around security checks, etc.
  • Information Leakage Attacks
  • Directory indexing and other inadvertent information disclosure
  • Cryptographic Attacks
  • Cryptographic implementations and patching
  • Business Model Attacks
  • Faulty process validation, etc.

Our roster of security experts can assess your application(s) components for vulnerabilities dynamically at runtime and proactively in terms of analyzing your applications’ source code for security defects. A typical vulnerability assessment engagement follows an internal process that has been used by us to test fortune 500 clients. Our On Demand Testing™ resources with different skill sets are brought in a moment’s notice and are only focused on their area of expertise. Once the vulnerability assessment is complete we will provide a full report along with recommendations on how to remediate the security issues. The tools that we use to perform our vulnerability assessments and remediation engagements are all customized from our years of experience executing security-as-a-service.

The reason why government agencies and fortune 500 clients entrust us with their application security testing is due to our proprietary methodologies and approach. Please contact us for more information.
