Working to secure a better tomorrow
Web Application security
The primary objective of a web application penetration test, or pen test for short, is to identify exploitable vulnerabilities in applications before hackers are able to discover and exploit them.
Web application penetration testing reveals real-world opportunities for hackers to compromise your applications in ways that allow unauthorised access to sensitive data or even system take-overs for malicious purposes.
Mobile application security
In the evolving world of technology, mobile applications are becoming more dominant than ever, this evolution has created a full range of new attacks that were not relevant in the classic web application world.
As application security experts, it is our mission to define and promote mobile application security.
CT DEFENSE performs penetration testing and code review on all platforms for mobile applications and has created a dedicated testing environment fully equipped for testing Android and iOS applications.
During testing, we simulate a multitude of attacks, both general application attacks and mobile dedicated attacks.
Web services security testing
Securing of web services is essential.
However, the security of web services is an often-ignored aspect of application security. Since they aren’t exposed in an application’s normal user interface, developers tend to pay less attention to their security. But many times they expose sensitive information and functionality, they offer hackers a secondary vector to attack the application and are therefore deserving of the same level of security attention as user-facing applications.
Thoroughly testing the security of web services requires a substantial amount of skill combined with a rigorous methodology.
The primary objective of a network penetration test is to identify exploitable vulnerabilities in networks, systems, hosts, DMZ and network devices (ie routers, switches) before hackers are able to discover and exploit them.
Network penetration testing reveals real-world opportunities for hackers to compromise systems and networks in ways that allow unauthorized access to sensitive data or even system take-overs for malicious purposes.
Our penetration testers also have experience in supporting networks, systems and hosts — not just in trying to break them. They leverage this experience to zero in on critical issues and provide actionable remediation guidance.
IoT devices and infrastructure are being deployed everywhere from houses to critical infrastructure. CT DEFENSE IoT Penetration Test approaches these tests by analyzing each component and the interaction between them. IoT security is approached on a layered methodology, where each layer is analyzed.
- Hardware and firmware
- Source code review
- Coverage of API and Web Consoles and Mobile Applications
Code review and secure software development
During code review the pentester discovers vulnerabilities that require a specific timing to exploit them. These vulnerabilities may require a lot of time in order to be discovered during a normal pentest.
This is the reason why we recommend pentests to be backed up by code reviews.
Phishing and Social engineering
CT DEFENSE launches realistic social engineering campaigns to evaluate how your employees will react to social engineering attacks.
We start social engineering assessments with open-source intelligence gathering to create customized real-world attacks. This process begins with target identification and information gathering, followed by exploitation attempts. Then we create a customized approach with the objective of engagement in mind.
After the social engineering assessment is completed, we provide a detailed report that covers the policies tested and the results of each attempted breach.
