Adopting cloud technologies with clear advantages such as agility, scalability, speed and cost-savings makes it popular than traditional setups. A cloud security assessment helps businesses to identify the risks needed to be minimised to protect business-critical assets in the cloud. 

Defendza's penetration testing consultants can deliver cloud security assessments in the following models:

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Software as a Service (Saas)

Why do you need Cloud Security Testing?

Assessments wise, just as on-premise systems require regular testing, cloud assets are the same. However, risks change due to the different environment variables as per the setup. 

  • Irrespective of the cloud service model in use, it is the responsibility of either owner or tenant to provide a safe and secure cloud environment for its users. This validation must be sought to identify any gaps in the design and deployment phase.
  • Cloud based solutions require independent assurance around the building and configuration of service provider's environment. Defendza can assess these solutions hosted on Azure, AWS, and Google cloud environments.
  • Preparing for GDPR compliance, assurance for your partners or demonstrating continued commitment to cloud security practices starts with independent validation.

Types of Cloud Security Assessments

Defendza provides several different types of cloud security assessment services. Majority of the standard assessments include:

Perimeter (external) Assessment

External assessment involves assessing internet-facing infrastructure using port scans, vulnerability assessment followed by manual analysis and reporting phase

Firewall Rules Review

Can you confirm that your cloud-based firewall has relevant rules defined to prevent access to services within your private network? 

Build Review

Leaving host configuration in a default or a misconfigured state, could lead to slight compromise. This could result in a data breach as well as reputation damage. Before moving data to the cloud, it is recommended to undergo a build review of the cloud model for peace of mind. 

Cloud Application Pentest

Software as a Service (SaaS) models is currently flourishing the market. These applications are hosted in the cloud with shared infrastructure and backend. Our clients need assurance that their data is not accessible to other users of the Saas application. Defendza has conducted a successful assessment on several top SaaS platforms and our expert consultants are always ready to help you gain that confidence.
