Cloud Penetration Testing


A Cloud Penetration test uncovers vulnerabilities residing within your cloud infrastructure and provides a detailed attack narrative to help evaluate the impacts of each finding. Packetlabs' Cloud Penetration Testing methodology is 95% manual and is derived from the SANS Pentest Methodology, the MITRE ATT&CK framework for enterprises, Azure Threat Research Matrix and NIST SP800-115 to ensure compliance with most regulatory requirements. 

What you’ll get
  • Serverless cloud testing for Lambda, Azure Function, and Google Cloud Functions

  • Simulation of an attack scenario on your cloud environment

  • A GIAC Cloud Penetration Tester (GCPN)

  • Robust testing against AWS, Azure, and Google cloud service infrastructure that includes:

    • Cloud virtual infrastructure

    • Containers and pods

    • Identity and access management (IAM) 

    • Externally accessible exposures

Why conduct a Cloud Penetration Test?

Discover security weaknesses in cloud environments
  • Determine what an attacker could do with valid access keys or tokens

  • Compare current cloud configurations against security best practices

  • Identify potential paths from the internet to internal cloud environments

Protect access to sensitive information by finding weaknesses others overlook
  • Go beyond a vulnerability assessment to identify the techniques attackers would take to breach sensitive information.

Strengthen your cloud infrastructure with an expert
  • Cloud pentesting is new and needs a pentester with specialized training.

  • Packetlabs is Cloud Testing certified with testers holding GIAC Cloud Penetration (GCPN) certifications.

Reduce organizational risk and enhance cloud and container security

Organizations using cloud and container technologies face unique security challenges. Our cloud and container security penetration testing uncovers vulnerabilities within your AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and containers that can undermine your security posture.

AWS Penetration Testing

Identify gaps in S3 buckets, EC2 instances, and exposures in publicly accessible resources.

Azure Penetration Testing

Discover high-impact vulnerabilities in your Azure virtual machines, Azure Active Directory, and exposures in publicly accessible resources.

Google Cloud Penetration Testing

Identify gaps in Cloud Storage, Google Compute Engines and exposures in publicly accessible resources.

Improve Container Security

Test deployments of AWS Elastic Container/Kubernetes Service, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Google Kubernetes Engine.
