Gain confidence in your cloud

Cloud Penetration Testing

Our Cloud Penetration Testing (CPT) service combines configuration review with objective-based penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities in public clouds, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure.

Cloud Penetration Testing

Assess cloud security with targeted penetration testing.

Shockingly, nearly 96% of container applications deployed in the cloud contain known vulnerabilities. These weaknesses can have devastating impacts to businesses. Our services are designed to help you get ahead of security issues and ensure your cloud technology and infrastructure are secure.

Our CPT service can be bundled or combined with any of our other services to add coverage depth or deeper analysis where required.

Cloud Penetration Testing can help you:

  • Gain visibility and understand the impact of vulnerabilities within your cloud architecture.
  • Simulate the threat that a compromised user or a compromised application presents to the cloud environment.
  • Uncover unintended entry points into cloud environments through applications, CI/CD pipelines, and beyond.
  • Identify and exploit cloud-centric privilege escalation paths.
  • See how controls perform against real-world attacks in multiple scenarios.
Bishop Fox Cloud Penetration Testing Methodology Feature

Peek under the hood

Explore Our Cloud Penetration Testing Methodology

Our Cloud Penetration Testing (CPT) service combines configuration review with objective-based penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities in public clouds, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure. We simulate how an attacker can gain access to a client’s cloud environment through a malicious user or compromised application, and countless other methods.

Attack your workloads to protect them

What you don't know about your cloud environments can harm you. We uncover the risks to your business.


Simulate cloud-based attacks

A single misconfiguration in a cloud workload can put your entire business at risk. We simulate the threat that an attacker or a compromised application presents to your cloud environment. Across multiple scenarios, you’ll see how well your security controls perform against these targeted attacks.


Expose privilege access risks

Often our CPTs will reveal Identity and Access Management (IAM) misconfigurations that provide users with unintended administrative access to cloud resources. By identifying, exploiting, and illustrating these attack paths and exploit chains, we can show their real-world impact.


Discover unintended access to cloud environments

Teams often unintentionally enable access to cloud environments through applications or CI/CD pipeline tooling. We mitigate these risks by uncovering and exposing how services like Jenkins, Kubernetes, or source code repositories can be exploited to gain unintended direct access to the cloud environment.


Simulate the threat of a compromised user

A compromised user can do significant damage to your business by exploiting hidden vulnerabilities within your cloud environments. Go beyond a static vulnerability scan of your public clouds – gain real-world threat context with a simulated attack.


See how controls perform in against real-world attacks

Validate that your cloud security controls are performing as you expect in the face of multiple threat scenarios. Use our reports to harmonize security policy across cloud environments and tweak controls where necessary.


Gain visibility into cloud-based vulnerabilities

As cloud computing grows, many organizations struggle to get a big picture view of their security posture. Lift the fog off your public cloud operations and understand the material impact of cloud-based vulnerabilities.

Digging deeper into cloud security issues

When Reltio, the first cloud-native master data management SaaS platform, wanted to go beyond fulfilling simple compliance requirements and dig deeper into potential cloud security issues, they turned to Bishop Fox to help them assess the security of their platform, network, and Kubernetes deployment.
