A thick client (Fat Client) is a client in the client–server network or architecture. These are heavy applications that normally entail the installation of application on the user computer/ client side. These types of application run on the computer’s memory and therefore the application’s security depends upon the local computer.
These are actually the fully functional applications whether it is connected to a network or not. To run the thick client successfully, the IT team of an organization need to maintain the robust security to software deployment other than the maintaining the applications on the server side.
We provide the complete security assessment for thick client applications. Maintaining the thick client applications secure is not the easy going task. The thick client applications also involve the server side processing and therefore it calls upon a different approach to become ensure for the security aspects.
Our approach to Thick Client security Assessments take account of the review of data communication paths, server-side controls, and other client-related issues.
We make the efforts to bypass the authentication controls, evaluate the data communications functionality, memory, file structure, registry and other forms that can make for the possible denial of service (DOS) attacks.
By reviewing these attack vectors, we can deliver you the complete report for the security condition for an application.
Our Focus Areas
What We Do
We assess the security threats for thick client applications. We use some of the following techniques to bypass the client side validation for the correct evaluation of security aspects.
