advanced web application penesting

Advanced Web Application Pentesting training focuses on building the right mindset behind the attack life cycle . During the training the student will understand why and where to perform a specific attack & how to provide the right solution by understanding the anatomy of an attack. There is a high skill gap in securing web apps even after the adoption of modern security culture.

The real problem is the lack of  security mindset in the development areas, poor threat modelling , high dependency on automated solutions and sometimes poor solutions given by security engineers also affects the overall product. We are resolving these problems in our training program , With AWAPT training we discuss what , how and where the important decisions needs to be taken with respect to web applications development and security. 

The training follows the core principles of NIST, CWE & WASC methodologies. Advanced web application pentesting training covers up issues related to programming Languages like Javascript,, PHP, and java. We broadly cover famous web frameworks like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal,magento etc.

Advanced web application pentesting training focuses on a suitable dynamic web application penetration methodology for the people who are eagerly interested in learning the art of security testing of web applications. The practice also provides the insights into the up-to-date advanced pentesting tools required for carrying out a complete web application security assessment.

 There are myriad roles within the cybersecurity domain that are required to fill this gap, and we’re going to focus on one particular part – Web application security engineer.

The END goal of this advanced web application security training is to help the individuals to follow a well-documented and well-equipped web application pentesting methodology that can be used in enterprise grey box and black box assessments. Advanced web application security training has a significant Return on Investment; you walk out the door with pentesting skills that are highly in demand.
