They wanted our team to protect all the assets from unauthorized access, for this they wanted us to evaluate the security level of the information system by identifying possible vulnerabilities and support their development teams to eliminate any revealed security issues.

What We Did

Our penetration testers revealed a number of vulnerabilities with different levels of risk, besides technical issues we also helped them to evaluate and find an attack. As a result of doing this penetration testing they were able to take prompt security testing measures and eliminate possible negative impact.

Detailed analysis helped us to improve the process of the application. After detailed discussion about their public services, software versions and potential vulnerabilities we provided them the scope for testing all the selected elements of the customer’s network.

  • Other less risky issues such as social engineering attacks, spoofing, cross-site scripting, etc.

Technologies Used

  • Web Vulnerability Scanner
  • Burp Suite
  • Metasploit
  • Nmap
  • SQLMap


  • We prepared a technical description of the detected system vulnerabilities with their classification according to how harmful for the system and business they potentially are.
  • Actionable recommendations to eliminate the revealed security issues, as well as strategic security measures to secure the company’s resources in the long run.
