Cloud Service Penetration Testing

Providing the cybersecurity assurances you need when it comes to your cloud-based services

Why test your cloud services?

Migrating business functions and hosting requirements to the cloud is extremely popular, with more and more organisations taking advantage of the cost benefits, convenience, accessibility and flexibility it provides.

Despite widespread adoption, many organisations fail to appropriately lock down or secure their cloud instances, leading to sensitive data being available to internet-based attackers. 

Our cloud assessments are designed to evaluate the security of your services, providing you with the assurances you require.

Common cloud services we test include:

Amazon Web Services

Microsoft Azure

Google Cloud Platform

Our cloud service testing

What we review

Our cloud testing is tailored to your requirements and our consultants will perform a wide range of checks to ensure you are protected. The following provides an example of the checks we may perform, note this is not an exhaustive list and many of the checks will depend on the specific service under review:

Multi-factor authentication on administrative users and other high-privileged user roles

Anti-automation techniques are implemented, such as account lockouts

Appropriate logging is in place to allow auditing of suspicious behaviour

Appropriate warnings are sent when suspicious behaviour occurs, such as failed login attempts

Data loss prevention systems are configured to identify sensitive data transfer

Secure access controls on any sensitive data held on the cloud services

Not sure what type of testing you need?

Our team will be happy to discuss your individual requirements and provide a no obligation proposal based on your needs.

Our penetration test approach

The security confidence we provide doesn’t come from a one size fits all solution.

Every cloud service penetration test goes through a rigorous process to ensure you get the best possible results. Below we outline the key stages our testing goes through:

1. Client Focused Scoping

We work closely with you to fully understand the environment under investigation and your exact requirements before putting forward a bespoke test proposal.

2. Expert Manual Testing

Our manual testing is designed to challenge your security. That's why we only hire the very best information security consultants & all consultants are directly employed by us.

3. Tailored Reporting

Reporting isn't just a piece of paper, it's an ongoing process. We tailor our reporting to you, whether you need in-test notifications, ticket integration or a bespoke test report.

4. Post-Test Support

Our job doesn't finish on the delivery of a report. We make our consultants available after your test to provide clarification on findings & pass on their wealth of expertise.

5. Fix Check & Documentation

A fix check can be employed to ensure issues found have been successfully remediated & additional documentation can be supplied for assurance purposes

6. Ongoing Partnership

We see ourselves as trusted advisors and welcome clients contacting us outside of testing, providing honest advice on security issues wherever we can.
