Web Application Assessment

Identify and Mitigate Web Application Vulnerabilities

Hitachi Systems Security’s Application Assessments help your organization fully understand the vulnerabilities in your applications, whether it’s a public website serving customers, a third-party supplier interface into corporate CRM or even stand-alone applications.

With a Web Application Vulnerability Assessment or Application Penetrating Testing, you will understand your corporate security posture and receive actionable recommendations on how to perform remediation of the vulnerabilities discovered in your environment, including potentially required patches, code changes, access adjustments and more.
