Application Penetration Testing

Your applications provide a door to your most sensitive data. Keep them secure.

Web applications and mobile applications are the most vulnerable area within an organization's environment. A vulnerable application puts not only its data at risk, but can allow attackers to pivot and attack your entire internal enterprise. The convenience of access provided to customers, employees, and partners can also serve as the same to potential attackers. Weaknesses within the design, development, and deployment of applications can be exploited to gain unauthorized access to confidential data from anywhere.

Our application security assessment service helps organizations identify weaknesses within their applications. Our testing methodology emulates the methods used by an attacker utilizing both automated and manual testing.

Web Application

Our web application penetration testing services test your applications from both public (not logged in) and authenticated (logged in) perspectives. If your app uses multiple permission roles, we'll test inter-role authorization to ensure privilege escalation isn't possible. For multi-tenant apps, we ensure unintended cross-tenant access is prevented.

API / Web Services

Don't make the mistake of thinking your B2B web service is not a target just because it has no user interface. If it speaks HTTP and connects to a database, it better be secure. Our API / Web Services penetration testing identifies flaws within these interfaces and verifies that they are being used as intended. 

Mobile Application

Mobile applications are more common than ever. Unfortunately, many of the same mistakes made during the development of web applications are made in mobile applications. Our mobile application security assessment methodology will uncover the server-side and device-side risks in your mobile apps.

Thick Client

Thick Client applications are often overlooked by companies from a security perspective but can be even more vulnerable than web-based applications. Our thick client penetration testing identifies flaws within thick client applications including the services they interface with. 

Hybrid Application (Run time & Code Review)

Our hybrid application security assessment includes both run-time and static analysis of an application. This service is typically utilized to discover security issues during the implementation and testing phases of the software development lifecycle. 


Our continuous application security assessment service provides ongoing discovery of security weaknesses within your applications.  Organizations that rapidly develop applications can benefit from security testing commensurate with the pace of development. 

Why Choose Depth Security?

  • Remediation Verification (Re-test) Included
  • Post-Assessment Debriefing Presentation Included
  • Prioritized, Short and Long-Term Recommendations
  • Executive, Management and Technical Reports
  • Real-World Attack Scenarios
  • Step-by-Step Exploitation
  • Mature, Experience-Driven Methodology
  • Thousands of Assessments Performed

We manually validate and verify each and every issue we discover. We will not have your team wasting countless hours sifting through a large report that is only partially accurate.

We have performed thousands of application security engagements for organizations over the past decade. Our constantly evolving methodology and experience-based approach provide results not commonly encountered with other assessment firms.

All of our team members have a deep understanding of infrastructure as well as security. When we provide strategic or tactical recommendations, we do so while taking into account the organization and business we are working with. Most importantly we strive to provide maximum positive impact and value to our clients by helping them identify, quantify and mitigate risks.

Our severity rating methodology is based on the context under which the issue discovered. For example, we don't rate anything "Critical" that we did not exploit. We also pay close attention to the circumstances for a given issue. Was the application accessible from the internet? How large is the attack surface? Does exploitation require credentials? All of these contexts and many more apply to how a severity level is applied to a discovered issue.
