apptroops web services assessment uses a hybrid approach

To enhance the web services of the organisation they are working with

Web services are an important part of the web and mobile applications; apptroops’s web service testing methodology use the hybrid approach to identify issues from a security perspective instead of just a functional perspective.

The hackers who are able to penetrate and exploit the weak points in web services can cause harm or steal the sensitive data or affect the functionality of the application. With the help of Testing, you can identify and remediate the issues.

Objectives of apptroops Web Services Assessment

  • Perform web services security analysis at once
  • See overall security assessment with reports
  • Harden the web services
Web Services Assessment
apptroops WSA approach

Lets you know whether attackers can exploit web services

In order to start the testing, apptroops collects the communication between the client application and web service. Observing all service-related traffic, which is helpful in discovering and evaluating potential attacks. Once this is done apptroops provides you with strategic recommendations in order to make the security of these services better.

With the assessment of web services, organizations can understand the impact of any sort of attack against the processes,  by amending problems in these services the organizations can help ensure the security of important information and important processes that these services are meant to handle.
