Data is the new gold in the modern digital world. If your app or website collects user data, cyber security should be your top priority. And your team implementing it is only a part of the process.
Your software’s security is not just a theory. It requires practical proof of its efficiency. Penetration testing is exactly what you need to check for your users to rely on you.
A penetration test (or pen test) is a method of ethical hacking that allows you to estimate the efficacy of your cyber security. Pen tests simulate real cyber attacks and look for vulnerabilities that can be potentially misused. This method can be applied to any part of your software from backend servers to APIs.
Your team can use the insights of these tests to enhance security, fix bottlenecks, learn more about potential attacks, and be prepared for them.
With a pen test service, you can achieve the following goals.
Penetration tests are valuable for businesses from any industry and of any scale. If you use custom software, automated scanning may not be enough to find all vulnerabilities that cybercriminals can exploit. Our team will help you detect the following issues:
Unsafe user privileges
Source code injections
Regulatory compliance issues
Our company is ready to provide you with the relevant pen test as a service depending on your business needs.
Depending on your requirements, we can approach penetration tests in three different ways.
We try to breach your security as an external attacker with limited to no knowledge of your protocols, security policy, or network structure.
We pretend to be an internal hacker with some knowledge of your system. For example, we can know login details and the network overview.
We look through your solution under admin rights and assess your security level. We can look through your source code, architecture, and encryption principles.
To perform the necessary pen tests and provide you with detailed reports, we use the following strategy:
Defining the scope of work
Researching the system
Setting the rules of engagement
Gathering publicly available business information
Abusing account privileges
Exploitation of defined vulnerabilities
Attacking additional segments via compromised systems
Writing a detailed report with a description of all issues
Providing you with a list of recommendations for fixing them
Here is why Yellow is your best choice as a penetration testing company.
We have profound experience in performing pen testing for all types of software, businesses, and industries.
