Secure Your Web Apps and Cloud Environments

Silent Sector's custom tailored web application penetration tests are performed by our own experienced and credentialed U.S. based industry professionals.  Our objective is to find exploitable vulnerabilities and help you remediate issues before they are discovered by cyber criminals, all while achieving compliance requirements and providing proof of proactive security measures.

We design every web app pen test to the unique nature of each client's company, technologies, industry, budget, timeline, and other operational requirements.  Silent Sector has performed comprehensive web application penetration tests for a wide range of organizations ranging from banks and credit unions to manufacturing, healthcare companies to SaaS providers. 

No two penetration tests are quite the same because the world is constantly changing and so are the cyber criminals' methods.  Our team leverages the latest in both enterprise grade and open source technologies, using a tailored combination of automated and manual testing tactics to maximize visibility and identify realistic attack vectors.

Silent Sector's web app penetration test reports are never automated outputs with canned verbiage.  Each report is written specifically to meet the client's requirements with both detailed technical information and high-level executive documentation.  We provide non-confidential attestation letters for use with clients, auditors, and other interested 3rd parties as required.

We offer both Red Team and Purple Team approaches, preferring the Purple Team approach of working with your in-house or 3rd party IT professionals, providing education about the warning signs of a real-world attack to empower the team from within.  This helps to establish a true defense in depth approach which helps your tech professionals understand how to support a strong security posture in their individual roles.

Upon completion of each test and report delivery, our team follows up with a report review and consultation to support remediation efforts.  A retest is then performed to confirm the successful reduction of attack surface.  This validation demonstrates a truly proactive approach clients, stakeholders, and other parties.

Our penetration tests are among the most customized and comprehensive in the industry, while still being accessible to mid-market and emerging companies working with limited resources.  Clients have stated that our test pricing is 20-40% below others while providing a more thorough approach and better reports.
