Web Application Vulnerability Assessments

Add value to a web application vulnerability scan with an
assessment by a certified cybersecurity engineer.

70% of websites are vulnerable to malicious hackers. Make sure you aren’t. Detect vulnerabilities and get on a path to remediation.

Web App Vulnerability Assessments:
An Affordable Cybersecurity Service

Cyber attacks are shifting away from the network level to the application level. The number of high-profile attacks on the websites of financial institutions, healthcare organizations, and small businesses is rising at a pretty alarming rate. End-user workstations are continuously under sophisticated attacks targeting web-based solutions. It is an unfortunate reality that malicious hackers may start targeting your web applications. With web application security assessments, you gain an inside look at your application(s) and gain the benefit of reporting and analysis on all identified weaknesses. The ultimate goal behind a web app vulnerability assessment is to report on the findings of a web application vulnerability scan and combine them with the analysis of a professional cybersecurity engineer.

Identify Documented Vulnerabilities and Exposures within your Web Apps

Web application vulnerability assessments provide companies with the opportunity to discover vulnerabilities within their applications. Note that throughout the web app vulnerability assessment process, comprehensive automated testing will be used to identify used to identify application related vulnerabilities. At MainNerve, all our web application vulnerability assessments go beyond OWASP best practices in addition to national standards such as NIST, and come with a detailed final report and assessment by an experienced cybersecurity engineer.

MainNerve web application vulnerability assessments test your applications for vulnerabilities–and help businesses gain insight into how to eliminate them. At MainNerve, our web application vulnerability scans allow you to zero in on OWASP Top 10 Risks, the industry standard for categorizing the most critical web app-based vulnerabilities.

Web Application Vulnerability Assessments

MainNerve utilizes a blend of automated scans using open-source and commercial tools. Each is followed by a verification and analysis of the application by a highly skilled MainNerve security engineer. A web application vulnerability assessment (WAVA) includes a web application vulnerability scan (WAVS), with additional analysis by the assessor who performs tests in order to identify false positives–as well as to prove a vulnerability exists.

Our methodology is based on the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) testing guide for web application security assessments.


MainNerve will prepare a final report in accordance with the OWASP standards. The report will, if relevant to the current project, contain the following sections:

  • Executive Summary
  • Statement of Scope
  • Statement of Methodology
  • Discovery and Results
  • Remediation Recommendations
  • Risk Rating

Deliverables will be provided via secure file transfer service by MainNerve. All final deliverables are shared only with approved parties.



Web App Penetration Testing

Web application penetration testing is designed to assess and test the state of your web-facing applications, and provide actionable remediation recommendations for enhancing your security. Ensure that your web applications are protected from malicious cyber threat actors. MainNerve web app pen tests are designed to review all types of web servers.


Compliance Solutions

MainNerve’s compliance solutions are designed to help fill one of the biggest challenges for businesses: staying in alignment with the exhaustive list of Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) requirements. From PCI DSS and HIPAA, to CJIS and FINRA, MainNerve can help your business navigate the GRC landscape with specialized penetration tests.


Social Engineering

Social engineering, in the context of information security, is commonly defined as the of persuasion and/or manipulation techniques in order to influence people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. Ensure that your business is secure by testing and evaluating your employees against general phishing and “spear-phishing” attacks.
