Cloud security assessment
In today’s business landscape, many companies are using cloud-based systems to house critical operational data. To consider cloud systems safer than traditional online environments is naive. Their remote nature can leave you even more vulnerable to hostile attacks. Ensuring your cloud infrastructures are robust and secure, as well as a clear understanding of your providers, shared responsibility must be a central focus of your business.

What is Cloud Penetration Testing?
Cloud penetration testing is a proactive approach to cyber security. It plays a vital part in the improvement of your cyber security practices and protecting valuable assets.
The assumption that cloud servers and services are impenetrable because they are from tech giants is wrong. Not only do you need to ensure you have a secure business continuity model, you need to understand that the safety and protection of your data is also your responsibility. AWS and other cloud systems operate on a Shared Responsibility Model, giving you the ability to further improve the security posture of your environment, above the default configurations set by the provider. Even though cloud service providers allow many penetration testing activities, it’s always advisable to check the “Rules of Engagement” for your system.
Bulletproof’s CREST accredited penetration testers will highlight vulnerabilities, weaknesses and technical misconfigurations that a cyber attacker would target and uncover the hidden threats to your cloud network.
Benefits of Cloud Application Penetration Testing
A cloud security assessment is the best way to safeguard your cloud supported business and enhance your cyber resilience. As the world becomes increasingly reliant on cloud-based infrastructures, cyber attackers have developed sophisticated methods of infiltrating these systems. Whether you use cloud systems such as ‘Infrastructure as a Service’ (IaaS), ‘Platform as a Service’ (PaaS), or ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS), pen testing is a key way to understand the risks and protect highly sensitive data.
- Expose insecure functionality in your AWS, GCP & Azure cloud system
- Expose weak access controls to your cloud bucket storage
- Expose vulnerable security perimeters in your cloud infrastructure
- Improve security throughout your software development lifecycle
A Bulletproof Cloud App Pen Testing Methodology & Service
We believe cloud pen testing needs to be robust and holistic to reflect the increasingly sophisticated methods cyber criminals use to penetrate these networks.
As a baseline, all our cloud penetration tests compare the environment against the internationally recognised CIS security benchmark however, we take this even further. Our expert pen testers conduct bespoke manual checks outside of standard tests which include reviewing lower-level configurations, secrets management, environment architecture, network segregation and IAM/identity privilege hardening.
Highlights from our AWS methodology includes (but is not limited to):
- Assess network segregation and external attack surface
- Review all permissions and authentication including database and storage
- Assess the security of your API Gateway applications and other such services
- Evaluate the effectiveness of your encryption
- Compare the account against industry best practices using the AWS CIS Benchmark
