The PenTesting Company, a Michigan-based web application penetration testing company, announced a complete report on the most important aspects to consider when choosing a pen testing solutions provider.
The full report can be found at https://pentesting.company/web-application-penetration-testing-companies.
The newly released resource examines a series of crucial factors that web application developers need to take into account to ensure that they find a reliable, fully qualified penetration testing company.
A penetration test – also known as a pen test or ethical hacking – is the simulation of a cyber-attack on a digital system. It is performed to evaluate the security of the system and is essential to accurately assess potential vulnerabilities and enable the developers to make the necessary security improvements.
According to The PenTesting Company, those on the market for professional pentesting services need to ask a series of essential questions to determine whether or not a pen testing company meets their needs. Asking tough questions can be a reliable way to differentiate between the experts and the beginners. For instance, what vulnerabilities do they typically see with your own technology stack?
Another important factor that needs to be considered before choosing a pen testing company is its degree of accountability.
“Whatever pen testing company you hire, you are giving total control and access to everything,” explains the report. “If your application is important enough to conduct a web application assessment, then you certainly want to make sure you are not hiring criminals posing as a security firm (it happens). For example, here in America computer crimes are not tolerated and ethical hackers make too good of a living pen testing web applications to risk incarceration.”
Having a solid certification such as the OSWE (Offensive Security Web Expert) or GWAPT (GIAC Web Application Penetration Tester) is a good indicator of quality when it comes to new testers – but many experts may not have them, according to the report. This is due to a variety of factors, including the unavailability of these programs in the past, and the fact that some testers simply do not seem them as essential.
The report concludes with an overview of the crucial aspects to be taken into account before hiring a pen testing company.
With the latest announcement, The PenTesting Company continues to expand in the development of high-quality services and resources for modern web application development companies.
