Application Security Review

Commercial products are used throughout corporate networks, usually with little regard to how secure they are. Often it is thought that if a product is commercially developed then it must have undergone rigorous security testing. Unfortunately this is not always the case.

For Vendors

Application security testing of your products provides customers with the knowledge that deploying your products will not introduce any security issues into their environment. After any discovered vulnerabilities have been mitigated, the produced report can be used as part of product sales by showing customers that your products have been independently reviewed.

For Customers

While the best advice is to ask a product vendor for the results of an independent security review, these are not always available. Even if they are, how truly independent are the results? The team at Insomnia have reviewed numerous commercial applications, and have the niche skills required to perform this type of specialised work.
