SOC 2 is an AICPA compliance standard for service organizations storing customer data in the cloud that determines how companies should manage that data.
Blaze’s penetration testing services are a key practice to help your company obtain the SOC 2 certification.
With cyberattacks increasing in recent years, more organizations have been pushing for SOC 2 and other forms of independent security attestation from their vendors and business partners as part of their risk assessment framework.
AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria section CC 4.1 and CC 7.1 advise organizations to consider different types of evaluations, such as penetration testing and vulnerability scanning. Penetration testing assessments are a common way to augment the audit and satisfy the requirements to achieve compliance.
Blaze’s pentesting services help your organization identify security vulnerabilities and risks, with the necessary recommendations to remediate and fix the issues to improve your overall resilience against cyberattacks and achieve your SOC 2 compliance goals.
Pentesting provides valuable insight into how your system could be compromised by a hacker, helping you improve your resilience against cyber threats. It is essential for robust monitoring of vulnerabilities and risks and protecting your stakeholders.
Customers are increasingly concerned with data safety, thus requiring proof that suppliers’ security posture is up to high standards and complies with international best practices. SOC 2 pentest reports are widely accepted for third-party security assessment, and to prove adherence to proper IT controls and cybersecurity best practices.
Blaze has extensive experience providing penetration testing services for SOC 2 audits for companies in various sectors.
Our pentesting services follow methodologies such as OWASP Top 10, OWASP MASVS, OSSTMM, and PTES to ensure an in-depth review of the security controls of the platforms and systems in the scope of your SOC 2 audit. Our reports are tailored to the format auditors expect.
Blaze’s SaaS web application and API penetration testing assessments are performed manually, augmented by automated scanners and custom tools. We go beyond common issues listed in OWASP Top 10 and cover business logic issues tailored to your system.
The application pentest enables your organization to identify security vulnerabilities in your SaaS apps and back-end APIs and provides the necessary suggestions to remediate and fix the issues to improve your overall resilience against cyberattacks.
Penetration tests of mobile apps involve simulating the actions of a skilled attacker to identify vulnerabilities both in the application’s supporting infrastructure (back-end APIs and databases) and in the communication between the app and the server, performing an analysis of the application per se, along with its interaction with the mobile device.
Our team is well versed in penetration testing of Android and iOS applications. Blaze follows industry methodologies such as PTES, OSSTMM, and OWASP MASVS, to ensure an in-depth review of the security controls of your apps.
Blaze’s security engineers have the ability to perform a thorough cloud penetration test to identify vulnerabilities and advise your organization on cloud security architecture and configuration best practices.
We can conduct security assessments and configuration reviews of all major cloud platforms, such as AWS (Amazon Web Services), GCP (Google Cloud Platform), and Microsoft Azure.
Our assessment takes into consideration the review of the security of cloud services such as logging, security groups, privilege escalation from different cloud-based services, misconfigured storage buckets, and more.
We are! Let’s discuss how we can work together to create strong defenses against real-life cyber threats.
