Penetration Testing

Pressure test the integrity of your critical infrastructure

Vulnerabilities in web applications and misconfigured IT systems are unfortunately all too common. The result? An inevitable breach just waiting to happen! The repercussions of a hack can be devastating for any business, resulting in brand and reputation damage, financial loss, or worse.


If you’re serious about improving the security posture of your business, then the invaluable investment in a penetration test is one of the best decisions that your organisation can make.


The objective of a penetration test is quite simply to identify the security weaknesses and vulnerabilities that exist within your web applications and IT infrastructure through a complex process of discovery and exploit, utilising varying methods of approach to evaluate the integrity of your most valuable technical assets, in addition to validating the efficacy of your cybersecurity defence systems.


BlazeGuard’s approach to penetration testing involves a comprehensive methodology based upon the following internationally recognised standards: The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), CWE/SANS Top 25 Most Dangerous Software Errors, The Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM), SANS, National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-115 (NIST 800-115), in addition to our own independent research.


The following section outlines the types of penetration testing categories available with BlazeGuard.

Web Applications

We pressure test the integrity of your web applications by safely discovering the threats and vulnerabilities that they’re prone to through an advanced process of attack simulation. Tests are conducted using either an authenticated or unauthenticated user approach to accurately profile the applications and to determine their resilience to advanced hacking techniques.

Our aim is to both identify, and, to help you remediate the risks discovered during the penetration test.

Network Infrastructure (Internal/External)

An excellent approach to profiling the overall security posture of your network through a series of tests that validate the integrity of your networked devices, whether they be internal systems, or those that are externally facing.

Our comprehensive process involves the testing of services listening on your external IP addresses, the configurations of your firewalls and VPN solutions, as well as identifying any vulnerabilities that may exist across your internal systems and networked devices in order to provide you with a 360 degree view of just how secure your critical assets are against malicious actors.


Mobile Applications

Whether it’s Android, iOS, or Windows mobile, it’s no secret that mobile devices play an integral part to interacting with your business. As such, it’s just as important to ensure that your mobile applications are safe and secure from vulnerabilities that could expose your business to an attack.

Our process involves rigorous penetration testing of your mobile applications, including the software packages, data in transit, and server side API’s, covering the OWASP Top 10 mobile risks to identify the security flaws that exist across your mobile application architecture.

Wireless Networks

Conventional security controls designed to protect wired networks are no match for a WiFi access point! The convenience of wireless networking has long since become a standard in corporate networks, however, with this convenience comes a level of risk.

Hackers often target wireless access points as a means to gain unauthorised access into your private network, and if not properly secured, they become an easy entry point for attackers.

Our comprehensive series of tests involve the process of conducting a site review to identify both known and rogue access points, in addition to attempting to crack the most common encryption methods used including WEP, WPA and WPA2.
