Thick Client Application may contain many security vulnerabilities that could lead to system compromise. The Application security testing helps identify the programming-level issues, file access issues, configuration issues in the application that can lead to system compromise. It is a technical assessment that involves exploiting the identified vulnerabilities in the applications installed on the client-side systems. This helps enhance the overall security of the application and prevents unauthorized access that can cause a breach. The testing procedure includes both local and server-side processing. The Thick Client Application test provides actionable guidance for remediating the vulnerabilities. It further helps improve the application development and security program processes. The test typically includes reviewing server-side controls, data communication paths, and potential client-side application issues.
Our qualified team of assessors will assess and map the assets and prioritize them based on their criticality.
We scan and identify vulnerabilities in your applications using our advanced commercial tools and in-house tools/scripts.
We conduct an Advanced Intelligent Scanning of your application to discover all network devices, operating systems, databases, firewalls concerned with the working and security of your applications.
We assess the configuration of the dependent infrastructure such as Firewall security matrix, Database security parameters, HPUX/AIX/Linux OS security configuration, Audit trails, IDS/IPS configuration, etc. for strengthening the security of systems.
We identify vulnerabilities and provide you with a detailed report comprising risk classification. This will help you make an informed decision and focus resources on remediating the most critical ones.
We will together with your team plan and strategize detailed remediation for vulnerabilities identified.
Thick Client Application Security Testing includes-
Commercial tools and internally developed scripts are used by our team for Thick Client Security Testing. Secondly, more than the tools, since Thick clients work in typically a non-standard way, real expertise lies in identifying gaps in business logic that resulting in system compromise.
Thick Client Application Security Tests should be conducted every 3 months depending on application criticality and the risk rating.
It takes approximately 2-3 weeks to conduct a Thick Client Application Security Test.
