Thick Client Penetration Testing Methodology.

Thick Client Scoping
Vulnerability Analysis
Reconnaissance and Enumeration
Mapping and Service Identification
Thick Client Scanning
Thick Client Analysis
Strategic Mitigation
Patch Verification
A holistic approach to perform thick client penetration test that not only discovers security vulnerabilities, but also finding business logic vulnerabilties along with security checklists based on industry standards, including OWASP Top Ten, PCI Compliance, and NIST 800-53.

Advantages with SecureLayer7

Benefits of an Application penetration testing performed by SecureLayer7 include:


Identifying every details to abuse or find attack surfaces in the application. Insight of the application can be used to find ciritcal vulnerabilties.


Identifying the vulnerability in the application. Prioritize high risk vulnerability and provide strategically plan to fix the vulnerability.

Get Compliant

After performing patch verification, show customers, stakeholders your commitment towards security, and protecting important assets.
