What is cloud penetration testing?

Cloud penetration testing services assess an organisation’s cloud services for security weaknesses. The aim is to identify vulnerabilities before they can be exploited; vulnerabilities that could otherwise lead to security breaches.

Rootshell Security’s Cloud Penetration Testing services investigate the configurations of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure environments against best practice standards. Using the same techniques as real-world threat actors, we then safely attempt to exploit identified vulnerabilities to confirm whether they could lead to a breach.

Our CREST-certified penetration testers provide expert guidance throughout, so you can remediate issues as quickly and effectively as possible to keep your organisation secure.

Frequently Asked Questions about cloud services penetration testing

A penetration test simulates a real-world attack on your organisation’s cloud service. This enables you to identify any weaknesses or vulnerabilities so you can improve your defences against a real attack.

Yes – we can perform penetration testing on your AWS environment.

Firstly, our CREST-certified testers conduct a manual review of the configuration of your cloud services. They carry out an exhaustive assessment of all the services that may be in use within your cloud environment, looking for any vulnerabilities.

Our testers will then use a combination of automated and manual techniques to attempt to safely exploit any identified vulnerabilities to determine whether they could enable a cyber attack. You will receive expert remediation guidance that ensures any issues are resolved quickly and effectively.

Our testers will also identify and analyse API calls in web applications to ensure that no sensitive data is being exposed.

We offer a range of penetration testing services. Our security consultants can help advise which types of pen testing services your organisation needs.

Our penetration testing services include: Infrastructure Security Testing, Web Application Services Penetration Testing, Vulnerability Assessments, Firewall Audits, Phishing Simulation Assessments, Social Engineering Assessments, Wireless Security Assessments, Operating System Build Reviews, Hardware Device Security Reviews, VOIP Security Testing, SCADA Security Testing, OWASP Mobile Application Testing, and Simulated Attack Assessments.

If unmaintained, cloud computing can leave your organisation vulnerable to cyber attacks. We recommend conducting a pen test any time you make significant configuration changes to the configuration your cloud services. Our team can advise the best solution for your organisation.

Our testers use a combination of automated and manual techniques, which replicate the latest methods used by real-world threat actors.

A penetration test simulates a real-world attack on your organisation’s network, applications, and systems to identify any weaknesses. A pen test is conducted by skilled consultants, who use the same techniques as real-word hackers; you can think of it as ‘ethical hacking’. On the other hand, vulnerability scanning is carried out using automated tools and solely focuses on identifying vulnerabilities within software.
