Web Application Security Assessments
Cyber Security Services
Objective of Web App Security Assessments
Web Application (WebApp) security assessments are also known as Software Assurance (SwA), Website Assessments or even Web App Penetration Testing.
However, the objective is always the same. To thorughly perform security tests that validate the security & functional requierments of your software that resides on your website!
In the Government, software assurance is defined as the level of confidence that software is free from vulnerabilities, either intentionally designed into the software or accidentally inserted at any time during its lifecycle, and that the software functions in the intended manner.
And in today’s digital age, Software is in everything… predominately we focus on the software that resides on your website. However, most of the same techniques can be applied to virtually any piece of software code.
The Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) further requested that DoD identify and brief Congress on the “state-of-the-art of SwA analysis and test” capabilities. We are proud to announce that our CEO helped push this movement during his tenure at the Pentagon from 2010 – 2015. And after seeing that this gap was not being fulfilled by current government contractors, he built this company!
And that why HBG Cyber, Inc. is here! To help the Government to protect their mission by providing cutting-edge Web Application Security Assessments aka Software Assurance Assessments.
Integrated Asset Management (IAM) Cyber Blueprint
Objective of Integrated Asset Management
Everything in the Cyber domain starts with Asset Management. When asset management is done wrong… your entire Cyber organization suffers.
And not just Cyber Security… but also Cyber IT!
With Asset Management, you have the ability to track, manage, and report on information assets throughout their entire life cycle!
If you don’t think this is important… try recovering from a compromise without have any knowldge of that asset you are protecting… and you will soon find that it make your Cyber Operations a nightmare!
With our proper integrated asset management Cyber Blueprint, you can increase cybersecurity resilience by enhancing the visibility of assets, identify vulnerable assets, enable faster response to security alerts, revealing which applications are actually being used, and reducing help desk response times and much more!
Cyber Frameworks that mandate the use of Assert Management:
- SANS Top 20 Critical Security Controls (CSC) in Industry
- NIST Risk Management Framework 800-53, 1800-5 Volumes
- ISO/IEC 27001 & 27002
- Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
- NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity
And that why HBG Cyber, Inc. is here! To help Cyber organizations to protect their mission by providing cutting-edge Cyber Blueprints & Cyber consulting services.
Static Analysis, Source Code Analysis (SCA) or Static Application Security Testing (SAST) is a service used to analyze source code and/or compiled versions of code to help find security flaws. We utilize Automated & Manual techniques to identify weaknessess in your code. This is the #1 best way to find vulnerabilities in web applications. However, it is the one that takes the longest to perform if not done in concert with the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).
Understand your web application architecture intimatly! This is one of the often overlook areas of web app security. Why?! Because not a lot of “experts” understand Networking, Systems, Storage, and Security Architecture to do it. Knowing software is one piece of the puzzle but there are many other things that need to be considered! Threat modeling is an architecture deep dive of your web application. It helps designers, administrators, architects, leadership and others address applications risks in an early stage of the development life cycle.
