O365 Cloud Penetration Testing

Our O365 cloud penetration testing helps you proactively identify and remediate security vulnerabilities in your O365 cloud environment.

Comprehensive Penetration Testing for Your Office 365 Environment

Cloud adoption continues to increase with the increased shift to virtual businesses and a remote work staff. In the same timeframe, web-based attacks have continued to increase. As more organizations move their data and applications to the cloud, cybercriminals have increasingly targeted cloud applications and infrastructures.

O365 clouds are commonplace, and O365 credentials have consistently been among the most targeted type of credential sought out by attackers, and regularly fetch higher prices than many other types of accounts on the Dark Web.

Cloud computing often requires both a learning curve and a planned migration. Cloud environments can be more complex than native environment, making them potentially difficult to secure and monitor. They often support a more secure infrastructure, but also require the organization have a very mature application development and management process to ensure practical security. As organizations adopt more advanced cloud services, such as containerization and serverless computing, their attack surface becomes more complex and harder to secure. This is complicated even more by fact that many organizations have a lack of not only cloud security expertise, but a lack of even cloud computing knowledge.

Evolve Security’s O365 cloud application penetration testing services help you identify weaknesses in your cloud implementation. We focus on the network and system infrastructure, as well as supported applications, with the goal of identifying weaknesses in your operational O365 implementation. We provide you findings in a concise and actionable form, enabling you to proactively prioritize and remediate those weaknesses, enhancing your control and security, improving compliance, and reducing risk.

Our proven O365 cloud penetration testing solutions

Evolve Security’s approach to O365 cloud penetration testing services enables you to increase your control over your cloud-environment, allowing you to reduce related risk. O365 cloud penetration testing is different than regular network testing because of the unique aspect of cloud environments. The Service Level Agreement you signed with Microsoft should clearly list who is responsible for what aspect of security in your cloud implementation.  In a shared-responsibility model, you may only have responsibility over some aspects of your cloud implementation, but it is still ultimately your data at risk.

Evolve Security focuses primarily on attacks that provide the attacker access to your data, including:

  • Open-source intelligence includes searching the internet and dark web for information about your organization and cloud solution that could lead to potential compromise. This includes data such as:
  1. Default information about the cloud provider like their configuration standards and any default passwords,
  2. Static system information like IP address or server names, specified software and version numbers
  3. Potentially sensitive or otherwise valuable information posted by staff or ex-staff members
  4. Usernames and passwords – defaults for the applications, software, and services being used, as well as previously compromised or posted credentials, and,
  5. Previous data from an earlier breach, test, or research.
  • Password attacks includes attempting to obtain, guess, or brute-force valid credentials that enable an external user to access any cloud services or data.
  • Cloud exposed information includes using next-generation tools, and open-sourced searches to identify information that remains exposed in your cloud implementation via shared storage space like OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams, as well as any privileged Outlook access.

Evolve Security typically recommends including an O365 cloud security assessment as part of the O365 cloud penetration test to help ensure that the organization’s O365 environment has been built in a way that supports the security, compliance, and reporting needs of the organization across the entire cloud environment. Evolve Security’s O365 cloud penetration testing solutions include the exact set of services that are most appropriate for your business needs. These services always focus on providing you with actionable information you can use to make proactive steps to improve the security of your cloud implementation, and better meet your business needs.
