Amsterdam-based software testing services provider, spriteCloud, launches ‘ethical hacking’ penetration testing services
Ethical hackers are certified security experts attempting to gain entry into your website, application or network using methods and knowledge available to malicious hackers. The goal is to discover vulnerabilities for you before real hackers do.
Amsterdam, NL: January 24th, 2019 – spriteCloud B.V., a provider of software testing services, announces the introduction of security testing services to their extensive portfolio of quality assurance and testing services. These penetrations tests are a step closer to providing a one-stop shop to clients for software and website testing services in the Netherlands and abroad.
The implementation of these new services at spriteCloud is in response to growing demand for cyber-security solutions in the wake of increases in large-scale cyber-attacks on businesses, governmental organisations and individuals alike.
Security testing, particularly penetration testing, has become increasingly important for companies in this new climate of cybercrime. Small-and-medium enterprises are now finding their websites or information being targeted for ransom with greater frequency. This need for security testing is further compounded by the new European regulation aimed at protecting customer data. Under GDPR, companies could be fined up to € 20m or 4% of their annual turnover for allowing security breaches to compromise customer data.
‘spriteCloud has long worked on countless digital projects with clients to minimize the number of bugs in their applications, we are now expanding our expertise to help protect our customers from malicious hackers. Adding these security testing services to our portfolio is a no-brainer from all perspectives’, says Baruch Annink, senior business development manager. ‘Our slogan “Test your software, not your reputation”, has never been more applicable than it is now’.
The penetration tests available at spriteCloud are designed to help clients identify vulnerabilities that hackers can exploit to gain entry and control over an application or system. spriteCloud employs a team of OSCE and OSCP certified “ethical hackers” to look at client systems and applications from the perspective of real attackers to provide comprehensive testing. Their ethical hackers are also able to look at the application or network more holistically to provide more exhaustive tests.
(Updated: 22rd, March 2019) The penetration tests offered, include:
- Vulnerability scanning – scans for vulnerabilities.
- Cyber threat intelligence – threat assessment of your publicaly available information.
- Web Application Penetration Testing – for securing websites and their back-end components.
- Wireless Network Penetration Testing – for securing organisations wireless networks from attack.
- Infrastructure/Network Penetration Testing – for keeping a company’s network secure from external and internal threats.
- Mobile Application Penetration Testing – exposes the vulnerabilities of a mobile app.
“This is just the first phase in our planned expansion of services to provide a fuller range of QA and test services to clients,” said Suzan Boland, business development manager at spriteCloud. “We’ve begun with security testing because we have seen a big need for it with existing clients.”
