In 2021, the number of cyberattacks on every company increased worldwide by 40%. Protecting your resources against malicious users is getting more and more difficult.
Even the most secure infrastructure may have some vulnerabilities that threaten your company. How can you make sure that you have covered all possible threats and that your resources are securely protected?
To achieve this, you can do a pen test, i.e., a specially designed penetration test. We’ll explain what it is based on the example of our service.
A pen test implies testing your infrastructure and applications for malicious penetration opportunities. The test consists in simulating a malicious attack, checking how deeply attackers can penetrate into your system, and calculating how much damage they can cause to your company.
The pen test is conducted from the attacker’s position. As a result, the vulnerabilities of your infrastructure and applications are identified. We check how dangerous they are and give recommendations on the ways to eliminate them.
You can test your application, the entire IT infrastructure, or its individual elements: databases, various network services (for example, email), network equipment, applied software, or user and server operating systems.
There are different testing methodologies. The Gcore’s pen test is based on two techniques:
The test involves 5 stages:
After the pen test, you will receive a report containing recommendations on how to fix the vulnerabilities revealed.
For example, our pen test report includes:
The vulnerabilities list includes a CVSS assessment (Common Vulnerability Scoring System), attacks scenarios, and their possible consequences.
This means that we will explain to you in detail which security problems we have found, which consequences they can lead to, and how to avoid it.
Our pen test service has been launched only recently, but we have a lot of experience in solving security issues.
We have our own WAF (Web Application Firewall) that protects our clients’ web applications against cyberattacks. Our servers are protected against DDoS attacks at layers L3, L4, and L7. We have managed to repel quite a number of threats and we know how malicious users act. This means that we are capable of simulating their actions and checking all your systems in detail.
