Security Testing Types We Offer

Security testing is often used as a synonym for its most popular type – penetration testing. However, security testing embraces a variety of techniques that explore IT infrastructure and applications from different angles. Below we present the services that are in high demand among the customers of our security testing agency.

Penetration testing

Simulating real-life cyberattack scenarios, we investigate how malicious actors can break into your apps or IT infrastructure and what harm they can potentially inflict.

Our penetration testing services
Vulnerability assessment

We combine advanced scanning tools and thorough manual analysis to unearth all known vulnerabilities in your software and IT infrastructure and prioritize them by their criticality.

Our vulnerability assessment services
Social engineering testing

We imitate the manipulation techniques used by cybercriminals to see if your employees can be tricked into divulging sensitive information or breaking security rules.

Our social engineering testing services
Red teaming

We perform a series of advanced attacks in lifelike conditions. Your IT team and employees are not aware of the testing. It helps understand if your security policies and procedures, preventive and detective security tools, and security awareness training are efficient enough to protect your company against targeted cyber attacks.

Our red teaming services
Compliance testing

We check if the security controls in your software and IT infrastructure are up to the requirements of the relevant regulatory standards (e.g., HIPAA, PCI DSS/SSF, GLBA, GDPR).

Our compliance testing services
IT security audit

We perform a comprehensive review of and help improve all the IT security controls you have in place: cybersecurity policies and procedures, technological solutions, and employee vigilance.

Our IT security audit services
Application security testing

Software security testing services aim to detect flaws in an app's architecture, code, integration points and further prevent unauthorized access to the app's data and functionality. Specific activities include manual code review, static and dynamic application security testing (SAST and DAST).

Our application security testing services
Cloud security assessment

We define the AWS, Azure, or GCP security controls within your responsibility and test the security of your cloud environment. On demand, we help remediate the found vulnerabilities and fine-tune your cloud security services.

Popular Questions about Security Testing Services, Answered

Is security testing included in QA activities during software development?

It may be a part of the QA activities within SDLC, especially during the development of highly secure software. However, in most projects, security testing is a separate activity, and it should be conducted by a dedicated professional team.

What are the benefits of third-party security testing?

If you outsource a security checkup, you avoid continuous hefty spending on your in-house security testing team and tools. At the same time, you get access to a wide pool of cybersecurity skills and tools. Plus, you can leverage the vast experience and knowledge of the latest vulnerabilities and hacking techniques a competent vendor should possess.

How long does security testing take?

The duration of a security testing checkup varies greatly depending on its scope, technique(s), and other factors. Penetration testing of a simple web app may be completed in around 1 week, while HIPAA compliance risk assessment may take 10 weeks. If you want to know what timeline is feasible for your planned project, you are welcome to contact our team.

How much does security testing cost?

The cost of a security checkup can vary depending on the testing type, the number and complexity of the testing targets, the qualifications of the testing team, and other factors. For example, vulnerability assessment of 200 network IPs to prepare for a HIPAA compliance audit may cost $5,000. The price of a phishing campaign combined with white box IT infrastructure pentesting for a medium-sized company is likely to start from $40,000. We’ll be happy to help you calculate the required budget for your project.

How to make sure my company can withstand the most widespread cyber attacks?

Email services and web applications are the most common attack vectors, so it's crucial to timely fix any vulnerabilities they have. Consider social engineering testing to verify the efficiency of your email security tools and policies and employees' cyber resilience. Web security testing services are needed to explore the protection of your websites, web applications, APIs, and web services to detect potential security loopholes and prevent widespread cyber attacks.

How can we be sure that we managed to fix the vulnerabilities detected during a security testing project?

After your IT team or our security experts eliminate the reported vulnerabilities, we offer a quick re-testing round to check if all fixes were applied correctly. The re-testing is included in the price of the project, so you don't have to pay extra to validate your new security level.

Tools Powering Our Security Testing Team

Along with manual vulnerability exploration, we expertly apply security testing tools that best suit the project specifics. As a result, you get an all-around view of the existing security issues in the shortest possible time.
