Penetration Testing

End-to-end testing allowing you to proactively identify known and unknown threats, vulnerabilities and cybersecurity risks to your people, process and technology.

Proactive security testing better prepares you for attacks, reduces your risk and strengthens your security posture.


The Front Door of Your Organization

Applications represent an easily accessible target that may be open to attackers located around the globe or even within your own organization. From handling critical business processes to brochure-ware, these applications can be the first choice for an attacker looking to deface sites, steal your data, or gain a persistent foothold in your environment.

Developing an application is hard work. Automating a business process that reflects the nuances of your organization’s varying workflows can be a daunting challenge even to the most experienced developers who are focused on ensuring that the application not only functions correctly but also performs efficiently. Software testing is often performed to positively verify functionality before the application is deployed to its larger audience. However, software testing rarely looks for the potential abuses of business logic, authentication/authorization implementations, or the risks associated with the application’s underlying environment.

What is Penetration Testing?

A penetration test, also referred to as a pentest or ethical hacking, is a simulated attack executed on your computer systems or on-premise security posture to hunt for and uncover vulnerabilities. These simulated attack methods can help to identify weak spots in your security posture before your adversaries do.

Identify the Gaps

Examine your environment to identify gaps within your security program and technology​.

New tools and technology in the business introduce new vulnerabilities which expand your attack surface. The Knowledge is power applications featured on enterprise networks are susceptible to in Cybersecurity. Inventory and software flaws and configuration issues that threat actors love to take advantage of. This automated security test exposes the system weaknesses that attackers exploit, ranking their severity and allowing you to address missed patches.

The SpiderLabs Approach to Speciality Testing

Your organization requires a tailored approach to the most used or unique technology​

Environments are as unique as the organizations themselves. Frequent specialty penetration tests can help you discover flaws in web and mobile apps, servers and associated APIs that interact with IoT products, as well as cloud clusters that store and process vulnerabilities detected IoT data. Sealing the security gaps tied to new threat vectors can reduce your attack surface and thwart major disruptions.

Red Team Exercise-based Testing​​

A Red Team engagement is a laser-focused cybersecurity engagement designed to make an organization's nightmare come to life in a simulated attack. Rather than focusing solely on the technical controls, Red Teams aim to find flaws in people, processes and technology. The business will provide a set of goals to the Red Team and the entire operation is built around accomplishing those goals without being detected.

Red Team

  • Adaptable based on specific regulations

  • "Continuous" and "Point in Time" options​

  • Uses advanced Tactic, Techniques, and Procedures

  • Remote or onsite delivery​

Purple Team

  • Adaptable optimized based on specific Scenarios or Problem set mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework.

  • Point in time exercise based on immediate concerns about risk​

  • Engagements starting at as little as two weeks with a list price of 22,000 USD​

  • "Remediation" advice we collaborate with you throughout and after the engagement​

Advanced Testing

Purple Team Advanced Exercise-based Testing

Specific testing exercise to address your organization risk and capabilities​

While the Red Team aims at completing its nefarious goals, your Blue Team is charged with stopping attacks. Put those two together and the result is a Purple Team engagement, which pits the Red Team (attackers) against the Blue Team (defenders) to sharpen the skills of your defenders in a sustained timeframe.

  • Focus on advanced TTPs

  • Customer selected scenario to execute between Red and Blue team​

  • TTPs executed in the customer’s environment. ​

  • Tactical and strategic debrief
