GCP Penetration Testing

We offer a Google Cloud (GCP) pen testing service to assess a client’s GCP environment. Our team thoroughly reviews the configuration, scans for potential vulnerabilities, and performs penetration testing to detect security gaps. We simulate real-world attacks and evaluate various aspects, including GCP IAM, Google Compute Engine, Kubernetes Engine, and Google Cloud Storage, to help maintain a secure GCP environment.

Our Methodology

Although Google’s infrastructure is designed to be secure, it may have potential vulnerabilities and cloud misconfigurations. Our services will identify vulnerabilities unique to your infrastructure and the most common point of entry used by adversaries to breach GCP environments, focusing on frequently vulnerable infrastructure components, including the below services.

As part of our evaluation process, we carefully assess the following services:

Assumed Breach Model

We adopt an assumed breach model penetration test as our primary approach. This test simulates a threat actor gaining access to the cloud environment, allowing us to uncover potential misconfigurations in the GCP environment. By identifying these risks, we can help you proactively address them and improve your overall security posture.

  • Our Approach

    Cloud Environment Scoping & Reconnaissance
    We work with you to understand the scope of the specific cloud-hosted environment to be evaluated. We protect your cloud environments against targeted threats with technical configuration assessments and scenario-based exercises. Also, we conduct targeted reconnaissance to assess the attack surface of externally exposed systems and services.
    Vulnerability Exploitation
    We use automated vulnerability scanning tools to identify low-hanging fruit vulnerabilities. Additionally, we attempt to exploit identified vulnerabilities using a combination of publicly available exploits and commercial penetration testing tools. Our experts then conduct realistic attack simulations using internally developed exploits and tools to mirror the latest attacker behaviors as seen on the frontline.
    Access Cloud Platform
    We work to gain access to your cloud platform from the Internet with a mission to steal data from sensitive environments in your network or take control of critical devices to issue malicious commands.
    Goal accomplishment / Recommendations
    We provide hardening recommendations to improve your cloud environment's overall defense and maturity. Our objective is to help you mitigate attack surface vulnerability and exposure. 
    Follow-up / Re-Testing
    Conduct additional testing to ensure the remediation measures have successfully addressed the identified vulnerabilities.

    Our Team can provide your business with the following.

    We follow Google’s guidelines for comprehensive security assessments of your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environment. We follow these guidelines and use techniques used by attackers to make sure our client’s GCP environment is safe and secure. We take a comprehensive approach to the cloud environment on penetration testing to ensure we identify and address all vulnerabilities in your Google Cloud (GCP)  environment.
