Guide includes important topics, such as what cloud penetration testing is, how it benefits a business, and what type of services are currently available to companies.
To help businesses identify vulnerabilities in their cloud assets before security challenges arise, DigitalXRAID, a leading managed security services provider (MSSP), discusses the importance of cloud penetration testing.
Cloud computing and cloud environments are gaining momentum among businesses looking to enable scalability while significantly slashing IT overhead costs.
That being said, attack surface expansion has exploded, which is driven by increased cloud adoption, the ever-evolving cyber threat landscape, and the use of IaaS (Infrastructure as a service) platforms. As a result, hackers now have more attack vectors to infiltrate a company’s systems, networks, and applications.
Case in point: 27% of organisations have experienced a security incident in their public cloud infrastructure in the last 12 months alone.
Security flaws turning into cyberattacks can lead to catastrophic repercussions, such as sensitive data exposure, negative brand equity, decreased customer loyalty, and hefty fines and penalties for data breaches.
For businesses looking to uncover every weakness in their cloud infrastructure to thwart potential cyberattacks, leveraging a highly qualified and CREST accredited cloud penetration testing service provider is a no-brainer.
Cloud penetration testing is a simulated, authorised, and targeted cyberattack conducted on a system hosted by a cloud service provider (CSP), such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, etc.
This type of testing helps security experts figure out how cybercriminals may exploit security gaps and weaknesses in a company’s cloud infrastructure. Threats or issues identified during cloud penetration testing can be addressed before they are maliciously exploited by hackers.
Cloud pen testing is a five-step process that includes initial scoping, reconnaissance, assessment, investigation, and reporting.
By pinpointing the common reasons behind security threats, for example, existing malware, ransomware, supply chain issues, cloud implementation misconfiguration, insecure APIs and interfaces, and more, cloud penetration testing helps efficiently secure a company’s cloud setup.
Leveraging world-class CREST methodologies and cloud penetration testing tools, DigitalXRAID aims to track down, triage, and help remediate security vulnerabilities in a company’s cloud infrastructure before threat actors hold sway over them.
As a CREST-accredited security service provider, DigitalXRAID offers tailor-made cloud pen testing services that address challenges specific to a client’s unique business needs and cloud environment.
By leveraging DigitalXRAID’s ongoing cloud penetration testing, businesses can augment their cloud security posture, improve customer loyalty, safeguard their business operations, and more. As a result, measurable (and quick) ROI keeps flowing in the business.
