Application Security Test
Adoption of applications in critical business processes is now greater than ever before. More often than not, these applications store, process and transmit sensitive data which if compromised can have serious regulatory and reputational implications for your organisation.
IRM's Application Security Test service provides an in-depth technical coverage of your application, using proven methodologies to identify all weaknesses and vulnerabilities present which might be exploited.
The resulting deliverable, a comprehensive assessment report, will document defects identified in the application's security posture along with appropriate remedial actions prioritised on the basis of risk posed by each issue. The information is presented in an actionable intelligent form that can be consumed by your test and development teams along with a summary directed at executive teams which translates technical findings into business impact scenarios.

IRM's risk based approach to application security is a back bone to the test engagement. As opposed to conventional sporadic black box testing, IRM consultants visualise threats and identify areas of the application where these are most likely to manifest. These threats and then translated to test cases which aim to identify vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, XSS, buffer overflows, etc.
In IRM's test methodology, business context of the application is central to driving the threat assessment phase which marries undesired business effects to the application's security requirements. Subsequently, consultants attempt at recreating these potentially undesired effects by means of well designed and easy to reproduce security test cases.
Moreover, IRM's service can be tailored to suit specific requirements such as those covered by standards like PCI DSS and ISO 27001. The final report will then encapsulate findings in terms of how your application's security maps to regulatory or compliance mandates.
