Application Security Consulting

Application Security Consulting

Today bringing your business online is a must in an effective business development strategy. Thus more and more sensitive data is moving to the web which brings new application security and information confidentiality challenges.

Complex Approach to Securing Web Applications

The most secure web applications are those that are developed initially with security in mind. Virtuo Technologies specialists follow a holistic approach to designing, building and supporting secure web applications. We address security issues on all application tiers (web server, application server and database).

While developing secure web applications we analyze vulnerability categories and potential threats (external or internal) depending on application scenario and technologies used. This enables us to develop an effective security architecture and take proper countermeasures.

Vulnerabilities and Potential Threats

  • Authentication

    Network eavesdropping, Brute force attacks, Dictionary attacks, Cookie replays, Credentials theft

  • Input Validation

    Buffer overflow, cross-site scripting, SQL injection.

  • Authorization

    Privilege elevation, confidential information disclosure, data tampering.

  • Configuration Management

    Unauthorized access to application administration, hacking of configuration data

  • Sensitive Data

    Sensitive data discloser, network eavesdropping, data tampering

Securing Practices and Countermeasures

  •  Partition of public and restricted areas
  •  Account disablement policies
  •  Proper credentials verification and storage
  •  Proper password handling
  •  Authentication data protection
  •  Communication channels securing using SSL
  •  Thorough input validation
  •  Proper input filtration
  •  Centralized validation strategy
  •  Proper database access
  •  Multiple gatekeepers
  •  Authorization granularity
  •  Role-based security
  •  Strong access controls
  •  System level protection
  •  Role-based administration with strong authentication
  •  Secure communication channels for remote administration (SSL, VPN)
  •  Restricted access to configuration data
  •  Least privilege approach
