AWS Cloud Penetration Testing

Our AWS cloud penetration testing helps you proactively identify and remediate security vulnerabilities in your AWS cloud environment.

Protect Your AWS Infrastructure with Penetration Testing

AWS penetration testing empowers organizations to strengthen the security of their AWS workloads, prevent avoidable breaches to their systems, and remain compliant with industry regulations. Through proactive evaluation and stress-testing of the cloud’s perimeter, internal cloud environments, and management of on-premises cloud systems, Evolve Security helps organizations identify vulnerabilities, risks, and gaps in their AWS infrastructure. Cloud penetration testing borrows from the best practices and methodology developed through years of testing traditional network infrastructure and modernizes the approach by targeting high-risk assets such as cloud-hosted APIs and applications, cloud databases, and cloud services. The actionable insights produced through rigorous testing allows security teams to prioritize remediation activities and align security roadmaps with their greatest business risks.

Our proven AWS penetration testing solutions

Evolve Security’s AWS penetration testing methodology is driven by the Shared Responsibility Model, in which cloud customers are primarily responsible for the security of their applications, data, and access management to cloud resources, and focuses on discovering common and complex flaws in cloud environments. Leveraging an objective-based approach, Evolve Security assesses IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS layers of the cloud environment and helps to identify:

  • Outdated and Vulnerable Software
  • Misconfigured Cloud Services
  • Shadow IT
  • Weak and Overly Permissioned IAM Accounts
  • Insecure Resource Policies

Evolve Security works with your organization to understand the unique deployment, configuration, and risk profile of your AWS resources and infrastructure. In a collaborative effort with your team, we help model realistic and high-probability attack scenarios to stress test your cloud security posture against skilled adversaries. This includes threat-modeling and identifying cloud-access entry points (APIs, Administrative Interfaces, Login Portals), unintended data leaks in public storage (S3, EBS), insecure applications (Server-Side Request Forgery with access to an AWS Metadata server), and internal risk analysis. Evolve Security’s cloud experts contextualize attack paths against your environment, including evaluating the exploit likelihood and potential impact of discovered issues, to drive actionable security improvements. Tailored reporting provides your team with important technical processes, findings, and strategic recommendations to help streamline remediation efforts, in addition to executive overviews to highlight the most important business risks.
