Security testing

Decades of penetration testing and living in CyberSpace has taught us that there’s always a way in. We’ll find it — and help you keep the bad guys out.

Incorporate QA security testing in SDLC from the get-go

QA security testing is used to spot vulnerabilities in a corporate IT environment and uncover security threats to it. Since 2012, VentureDive has been equipping companies with insights into the cybersecurity state of their IT environment and recommendations on how to improve their software security testing posture.

Our focus is on assessing software applications for security problems, during development and post-launch. During the development process, we provide security assessments that integrate into CI/CD pipelines and DevOps methodologies, allowing security vulnerabilities to be identified early.

Common software security threats

Your software, apps, and APIs might be vulnerable to many threats, including:


Involves injection of malicious scripts into a web page. This allows attackers to redirect the user to another website where they can steal their cookies, load a malicious program on their machines, etc.

Cross-site request forgery

Involves link placement on a trusted web page. When the users go to the attacker’s website, the malicious code runs and gains the user’s account control or steals sensitive data, e.g. logins, passwords, etc.


Involves injection of code snippets that affect how a program functions. This enables the attackers to access sensitive information of the users, break the application, and so on.

Server-side include injection

Involves injection of malicious HTML scripts into an application, to be executed later by the local webserver. Lack of proper validation allows attackers to execute arbitrary codes remotely.


Involves the attacker obtaining a role higher than their own, within a web application. This allows them to bypass access control and get unauthorized access to another user’s account and personal data.

Engagement models

We provide automated software testing services under two engagement models:

One-time security testing

Looking to get impartial security testing and evaluation without vendor lock-in? Engage with us short-term to weigh the pros and cons, form an opinion and then make a decision for further cooperation. This one-time engagement will usually last the duration of a single project.

Managed security testing
