AWS Penetration Testing

Penetration testing in AWS, also known as AWS penetration testing, is a systematic process of probing for vulnerabilities in the applications and infrastructure hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). It’s a simulated cyber-attack where the pen tester uses the techniques of real-world hackers to unearth any potential security loopholes. 

Who Benefits from AWS Pen Testing?

Organisations of all sizes and from all sectors that utilise AWS for hosting applications or storing data can benefit from AWS penetration testing. Regardless of whether you are a startup or a large enterprise, if you have data on AWS, penetration testing is crucial for maintaining the security and integrity of your data. 

Certified by CREST and Offensive Security, our qualified testers employ real-world hacking techniques to uncover profound insights.

Focal Areas in AWS Penetration Testing

External Infrastructure of AWS Cloud

The tester examines the externally facing systems and services of your AWS cloud environment for any potential vulnerabilities that a hacker could exploit. 

Applications Hosted on AWS

The applications that you’re hosting or building on your platform need rigorous testing to uncover any potential security flaws within the code or design. 

Internal Infrastructure of AWS Cloud

The internal components of your AWS setup, including database services, storage instances, and virtual networks, are tested for vulnerabilities. 

AWS Configuration Review

AWS services have complex configurations, and even a minor misconfiguration can lead to a significant security risk. Therefore, your AWS configurations should be regularly reviewed and tested.

It was a pleasure working with the Equilibrium team - they were very understanding of our needs, worked very well with my team, and most importantly were very patient and understanding of the limitations of my team to provide the information required when needed due to other priorities.
