Web services help you integrate remote systems into business processes or data. For that reason, they are tempting targets for attackers and should be tested for vulnerabilities. Web services have become an integral part of web and mobile applications. They are also increasingly targeted and should be tested for any security weaknesses. Swiftsafe's web service testing methodology uses an in-depth approach to identify issues from a security perspective instead of just a functional perspective. In the presence of multiple web services with overlapping or identical functionality, service consumers need objective quality of web services (QoWS) criteria to distinguish one service from another. An objective QoWS framework and an active assessment model are essentially required
Attackers who are able to exploit vulnerabilities in web services are often able to compromise your sensitive data or the functionality of applications. Testing helps you identify and remediate issues to better protect your data.
From critical business applications like SAP to mobile applications used by millions, web services are becoming more of an attack vector than ever before. If your application interacts with any type of web service, your organization needs to perform a Web Services Assessment in order to ensure proper security. Web services are increasingly vital components of modern web and mobile applications. As web services become more prevalent, they become bigger targets. This assessment determines whether web services can be abused by attackers.
Swiftsafe captures communication between the web service and client applications. Swiftsafe observes all service-related traffic and uses both manual and algorithmic software testing to discover and evaluate potential attack vectors. We then provide you with specific tactical and strategic recommendations to improve the security of these services.
Assessing web services helps organizations understand the business impact of attacks against this process. By remediating flaws in these services, organizations can help ensure the security of sensitive information and critical processes that these services handle.
