IoT / Embedded Device Penetration Testing

Providing the cybersecurity assurances you need when it comes to your connected IoT devices

Why test your IoT devices?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing at pace and organisations all over the world are starting to realise the benefits these embedded devices can bring to their operations, as well as their employees/customers. 

Whether you’re an IoT developer or an end-user, the security of such devices is vital and any breach could potentially cause reputational damage, as well as financial loss. Especially when they are processing sensitive data, where they have access to critical networks/systems within an organisation, or crucially, where a potential breach may endanger health.

What does our IoT penetration testing review?

Putting your IoT devices to the ultimate test.

Embedded devices can be complicated in nature and no two devices are the same. Our testing is tailored to the device under review and our consultants will undertake whatever testing is necessary to fully assess the cybersecurity of the entire IoT system. This could include:

Device configuration (Application)

Default credentials, password policies, insecure services, device eco-system & architecture

Physical security (Hardware/Firmware)

Identifying weaknesses in the design of the device, extracting and reverse engineering firmware to identify vulnerabilities

Network services

Investigating the technology protocols in use, encryption measures used for transit and data flow

Device application (Application/Firmware)

Technology used by the device, potential weaknesses in processes and flow of data, data storage and access control

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 approach to IoT penetration testing

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

Every IoT / Embedded device 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. Understanding your requirements

No two organisations, or projects, are the same. We work closely with you to gain an in-depth knowledge of your needs and a detailed understanding of the IoT device under investigation, before putting forward a bespoke proposal of work.

2. Expert led, manual testing

Our test services are conducted manually by our expert cybersecurity consultants and are designed to fully challenge the security of your IoT devices. All our consultants are directly employed by us, meaning we ensure the highest quality of service.

3. Reporting, tailored to your needs

Reporting isn’t just a piece of paper, it’s a process. Our reporting process can be tailored to suit your needs, providing you with timely, relevant, and detailed information, not just on our findings but also our expert remediation advice.

4. Post-test support & documentation

Our job doesn't finish on the delivery of a test report. We make our consultants available after the test to pass on their expertise, provide remediation support and can provide fix checks, as well as additional documentation where necessary.
