IGT’s expert test engineers conduct a thorough process of penetration testing combined with in-depth risk assessment in order to ensure the software application is completely hacker and cyber threat proof.
This type of testing is known as ‘security testing’ and is one of the most crucial phases of QA testing since presence of malicious threats in today’s digital space is at an all-time high.
Security testing is primarily aimed at four major areas which are Network Security, System Software Security, Client-Side security and Server-Side Security.
Software security testing takes place in cyclical approach which involves seven basic steps:
1. Defining Scope
The process begins with setting well-defined objectives and goals, which are provided to the tester from the organisation.
2. Information Gathering
In the next step, test engineers will gather information about your product and organisation from a number of resources as the main objective of this particular step is to be as meticulous and comprehensive as possible, in order to move ahead with a steady foundation of information.
3. Planning & Analysis
This step involves the test engineers to go through the rest of the available information and resources and form a plan of action as to how to move forward with the security testing both internally and externally.
4. Vulnerability Assessment
A test is conducted to identify the possible threats to the system through a series of state-of-the-art testing methodologies and these threats and risks are later validated and the vulnerabilities are later exploited by the in-house team.
5. Penetration Testing
This step forms the core of the security test where an actual cyber-attack is simulated in order to exploit the identified vulnerabilities in the application.
6. Reports & Analysis
The results of the ‘Pen Test’ are carefully documented and prepared for further in-depth study.
7. Remediation Testing
The final step of this testing phase is known as the remediation phase where the possible threats that have been validated will undergo remediation and ensure they will be protected under possible future threats.
