Cloud Services Penetration Test
Cloud Services Penetration Test
This Team Leader driven penetration test against your cloud services follows the PTES and OWASP testing guidelines and is conducted by CREST registered testers. It is designed specifically for penetration testing cloud based services, including Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure application deployments. We will identify and validate potential vulnerabilities in your cloud infrastructure and applications and provide recommendations for improving your security posture.
Our Cloud Services penetration test tests both your cloud deployed infrastructure and your cloud resident application. Testing follows both the OWASP and PTES methodologies which underpin our extensive testing methodology that has evolved over the last 12 years. Our methodology brings in over 700 different tests and checks into your cloud services penetration test. This approach emulates the techniques of real attackers, using the same tools as the attackers as well as a number of in-house developed tools. This enables a full assessment of the key components of the web applications and supporting infrastructure.
Once all aspects are tested within the time frames, the report is created in a format that allows you to assess their relative business risk and the cost of remediation.
WHY YOU NEED TO TEST
The security of cloud deployments is of paramount importance to the safety and security of any business and a breach of this security can significantly impact the continuity and integrity of the business as well as its brand and reputation. While traditional security defenses such as firewalls and other security controls are important, they can’t defend or alert you to many of the attack vectors specific to cloud based environments.
BENEFITS OF PENETRATION TESTING CLOUD ENVIRONMENTS
Our web application penetration tests will help you to:
Gain real-world insight into your vulnerabilities;
Identify if you have unsecured storage rears;
Locate where you are leaking authentication keys;
Keep untrusted data separate from commands and queries;
Develop strong authentication and session management controls;
Improve access control;
Discover the most vulnerable route through which an attack can be made; and
Find any loopholes which could lead to the theft of sensitive data.
HOW IT WORKS
Our Cloud Services penetration testing process is as follows:
Once you have placed an order, a review meeting is taken by the assigned penetration tester and our CEO to ensure we are going to test to a sufficient level.
We will schedule and hold a scoping call with you to establish the exact extent of the testing exercise. This is where we will also discuss the extent of testing.
A set of intelligence gathering jobs will be run by your tester to map out your cloud environment as they learn how your environment is put together.
A set of automated spiders will run to identified hidden and forgotten content.
A series of automated vulnerability scans will be run against your cloud services environment.
A range of manual tests will be run by your tester. These are closely aligned with the PTES and OWASP methodologies and are tailored purely for cloud services environment testing.
Immediate notification of any critical vulnerabilities to help you take action quickly.
A detailed report that identifies and explains the vulnerabilities identified and their Impact to your organisation.
A list of recommended countermeasures to address any identified vulnerabilities.
An executive summary that explains what the risks mean in business terms.
The price tiered according to the number of instances and core applications within your cloud services environment, starting with 32 systems and key primary application.
Testing will be conducted as an unauthenticated user and then with a single level of authentication.
This test is available as either an internal or an external test.
Expenses related to travelling, etc. are not included in the price.
On-site presentation of report findings and remedial consultations can be provided upon request at an additional cost.
The quoted price applies to testing during regular office hours. An additional charge will be incurred for tests conducted outside of regular office hours (9:00 to 17:30 GMT).
REQUIRE A MORE IN-DEPTH PENETRATION TEST?
We’ve designed our standard packages to be easy and affordable, but if you are unsure of your requirements, or your needs are more complex and involve attempting advanced exploitation of the identified vulnerabilities, please call us to discuss. Our consultants can answer your questions and make the process painless. If you would like to talk to one of our testers or meet with them, we would be happy to arrange this for you.
