Why Security Testing?
Revealing vulnerability
Real risks identification
Risks prioritization
Cost saving
Security testing uncovers vulnerabilities of the system and determines that data and resources of the system are protected from external hacking attempt. It ensures that the software system and application are free from any threats or risks that can cause a loss.
Leveraging reliability of the apps
Security testing demonstrates existing weaknesses in a system or an application.
Security testing reveals the real threats, which allows to see what hackers could potentially do in reality.
Security testing helps to categorize discovered risks and prioritize which vulnerabilities must be fixed first.
In a long term perspective security testing helps to avoid critical data leaks which lead to huge losses, downtime and reputational damages.
Security testing conducted on a regular basis protects software against security breaches, loopholes, and protection errors.

Security testing services and what we need to know about it

Nowadays when businesses go digital cyber security and data protection matter more than ever. Why is it so important? First, any business is dependent on its clients and their loyalty for growth. Operating online customers provide sensitive data such as credit card details or healthcare information depending on the services they avail. A data breach can make them lose their trust on an organization permanently.

Moreover, it's not just personal information of customers that's at risk, but also company's or an individual's ideas, patents, and plans potentially worth a fortune. Data breaches can be destructive for any business and can hamper the reputation of an organization. Years of hard work in building a brand name can be ruined by one severe data breach.
Failure of organizations in meeting data security compliance requirements can eventually result in destructive penalties, which can impact business to such an extent where recovery might be impossible. Moreover, it is relatively easy to rebuild an company's brand image than recouping from financial losses. Pay-outs to the affected parties can be devastating for an organization due to the damage caused by a data breach.

On top of this an importance of cyber security is often underestimated by small and mid-sized companies, but statistically over 60% oh them go out of business after a successful data breach. That's when security testing services come to scene.


Advantages of Security testing

SECURITY TESTING is a type of Software Testing that uncovers vulnerabilities, threats, risks in a software application and prevents malicious attacks from intruders. The purpose of Security Tests is to identify all possible loopholes and weaknesses of the software system which might result in a loss of information, revenue, repute at the hands of the employees or outsiders of the Organization. It also helps in detecting all possible security risks in the system and helps developers to fix the problems through coding.
Above all, Security Testing helps companies to ensure that their sensitive data is not subjected to any breach. Each organization is different in its own infrastructure and associated risks that require an in-depth analysis. Security Testing practices such as risk assessments, vulnerability scanning, security assessment and penetration testing can be used to identify threats to data security and prevent them.

What does security testing include?

  • Vulnerability Scanning: This is done through automated software to scan a system against known vulnerability signatures.
  • Security Scanning: It involves identifying network and system weaknesses, and later provides solutions for reducing these risks. This scanning can be performed for both Manual and Automated scanning.

  • Penetration testing: This kind of testing simulates an attack from a malicious hacker. This testing involves analysis of a particular system to check for potential vulnerabilities to an external hacking attempt.

  • Risk Assessment: This testing involves analysis of security risks observed in the organization. Risks are classified as Low, Medium and High. This testing recommends controls and measures to reduce the risk.
  • Security Auditing: This is an internal inspection of Applications and Operating systems for security flaws. An audit can also be done via line by line inspection of code

  • Ethical hacking: It's hacking an Organization Software systems. Unlike malicious hackers, who steal for their own gains, the intent is to expose security flaws in the system.
  • Posture Assessment: This combines Security scanning, Ethical Hacking and Risk Assessments to show an overall security posture of an organization.

Choosing the right security testing company

An importance of security testing is undoubted. But how to navigate a crowded marketplace wisely and choose the right vendor for security testing services? There are thousands of companies worldwide offering security testing services. Before making choice consider the following factors.

1. Tools and methodologies.

Depending on the provider, what you get can vary greatly. There is no unanimous standard for what a security test is and how it is supposed to be conducted. It is therefore important for you to ask the provider about what methodology or standard they are following. If the answer is "my own", there is reason to worry. In order for you to maximize value of the test, the provider should follow one of the international standards for security testing, such OWASP for application testing. First of all this will ensure you a structured testing process. Second, you will have an idea of what you are buying.
2. Reporting about outcomes and recommendations.

A security testing usually results in a report. The content of the report can vary greatly. As a minimum, you should make sure that the provider documents all the vulnerabilities and proves them. You should also make sure that a remediation plan with solutions is included. Be aware that some remediation plans are made with the sole purpose of selling you more security solutions. Small changes in configurations or coding, can sometimes greatly improve your security at almost no cost. You should look for independent providers who can make this kind of recommendations in their remediation plans.
3. Experts who provide services.

The result of the security testing is highly dependent on the person performing the job. When evaluating the providers' experts, you should have a look at their CVs. How long have they been in the game? What industry certifications do they have and how often they attend trainings. Most importantly, you should look at security accomplishments. How many security advisories, papers or CVE's have they published? Have they participated on any security conferences?
4. Call references

Check your potential vendor's web site and read use cases. The best way to evaluate a security testing provider is to ask for relevant reference customers. Make sure you ask the references about the value and quality of work that has been delivered.

The first stage of security testing process by Klik QA is the review of the current situation. We review the project and determine the scope of work on the basis of project documentation provided by a customer.
Review is followed by collecting information and analysing it. Then we scan the system and examine ports and exploit discovered vulnerabilities to detect potential breaches and report about outcomes and elaborate recommendations about making the system resistant to cyber security threats.

Security testing tools we use

The big variety of modern security testing tools available allows to complete security testing of any level of complexity. At Klik QA we use security scanners, support tools for application traffic scanning, scanners for detecting specific types of vulnerabilities, Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) methodology implementation.
Our top-class security testing experts are experienced in providing security testing for various industries and their expertise allows to choose the best tool set for effective work at affordable price.
Why is security testing required?
Security testing helps to identify all possible weaknesses of the software system or solution which might result in a security breach and helps developers to fix the problems through coding. Cyber-attacks and data leaks are highly damaging for any modern business, that is why security testing helps to protect business from direct Financial and Reputational Losses.
When should security testing to be done?
As a general rule, security testing should be done right before a deployment of a system, network, application or solution. It is ideal to test any software before is put into production. As cyber threats evolve rapidly, security testing should be performed on a regular basis to ensure system's resistance to newly discovered cyber threats.
