Penetration Testing

Pressure test the integrity of your critical applications and infrastructure with BlazeGuard

Why is a Penetration Test needed?


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.


Objective of a Penetration Test


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. This is done 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.


Our Approach


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 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 is through a series of tests that validate the integrity of your networked devices. These can 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. This includes 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.

API Endpoints

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are commonplace in today’s modern network, with most internet-enabled applications and devices now offering developers advanced, programmatic interaction capabilities through embedded APIs.


In simple terms, APIs allow for seamless communication and exchange of data between different software applications in a standardised way, making them an indispensable asset in the tech world. However, exposed APIs can be vulnerable to cyber attacks, just like any other digital asset on your network!


Our cutting-edge approach will take your API endpoints through a rigorous penetration testing process. We cover common attack vectors spanning the OWASP API Security Top 10 to identify any existing security flaws across your exposed APIs. Our goal is to ensure that you unlock the full potential of APIs while keeping your digital assets safe and secure.
