With applications getting more complex, Depth is the need of the hour. Our testing methodology combines the best of OWASP, SANS, OSSTMM, and PTES methodologies to deliver powerful results not only around known vulnerabilities, but also the deep seated business logic flaws such as Authorization, Authentication, and Crypto implementations.

Be it Browser-Based Web Apps, Mobile apps, or application program interface (API), our approach leverages automated and manual testing along with custom scripts to uncover even the most deep-seated injection, business logic, and access control flaws.

Threat Modeling

A "one size fits all" testing model, never works for Application Security. we45's contextual threat modeling approach ensures that we tailor our tests to your application, which is modeled based on the application’s architecture, components, deployment topology, functionality, tech stack, and the requirements of applicable industry security standards such as HIPAA ,PCI-DSS, SOC to name a few. This guides our testing team to focus on key business and technology risks from an attacker’s perspective, providing greater relevance, better insight and effective prioritization of vulnerability discovery and exploitation.

By gaining a complete understanding of the application’s parameters, and its interactions with external devices & services, our experts create custom test cases and utilize our already existing repository of generic test cases to drive their application testing process. They then utilize the value-based models such as STRIDE and DREAD, to determine and classify the different threats.


Security Experts are often  spend time identifying common vulnerabilities that can be just as easily detected through smart automation. To optimize the efforts of penetration testing, our experts use custom scripts to automate testing whenever and wherever necessary, while using manual techniques to identify more complex vulnerabilities that require a greater level of attention and expertise than what tools provide. Our scripted automation techniques also complements the traditional manual testing by providing greater efficiency in identifying and validating common vulnerabilities, thereby increasing depth and speed
