Thick Client Security Assessment

Certcube Labs thick client app penetration testing service utilizes expert manual penetration testing skills and a methodical approach to identify security vulnerabilities. They employ multi-vector cybersecurity testing to uncover weaknesses in design and configuration, ensuring comprehensive evaluation of the application’s security.

Thick client applications are installed locally on a user’s desktop/laptop and can run independently without an Internet connection. Examples include computer games, web browsers, music players, and video/chat tools like Teams and Zoom.

There are two types of thick client applications :

  • Two-Tier Applications: The server and client are on the same machine or internal network, with direct traffic between them.
  • Three-Tier Applications: These can connect over the Internet, with business logic processed by an application server. Thick client on the user’s desktop, while the application server and database may be elsewhere, using HTTP/S and sometimes alternate protocols like FTP/S, TCP, UDP, etc.

    Certcube Labs conducts thorough security assessments for thick client applications, regardless of their hosting environment. Their approach includes reviewing server-side and client-side security controls, data communication paths, data storage, and authorization/authentication practices. They use a combination of manual and automated penetration testing with various cybersecurity testing tools to evaluate the application.

    Mature the thick client applications security with us

    Certcube Labs’ thick client application penetration testing is designed to reduce organizational risk and enhance application security. As thick client applications handle sensitive data, such as health records and financial information, they can pose significant risks, especially if they are legacy applications. Certcube Labs specializes in identifying vulnerabilities in thick applications, safeguarding your organization from both external and internal security threats.

    During our thick client application penetration testing service, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation to identify security vulnerabilities. We then provide actionable guidance for remediating these vulnerabilities, improving application development, and enhancing overall security program processes. With our expertise, you can ensure that your thick client applications are robustly secured, protecting your sensitive data and mitigating potential security risks.
