What is Azure Penetration Testing?

Azure penetration testing is a type of assessment designed to identify and address vulnerabilities within Microsoft Azure infrastructures that could be exploited by hackers. Microsoft provides a number of security measures for experienced users, but it is each user’s responsibility to maintain the stability and security of their environment. Our services allow you to validate that your configurations are secure and determine exactly how your infrastructure may be compromised.

Why Conduct a Penetration Test of Your Microsoft Azure?

By conducting penetration testing, organizations can gain valuable insights into the security posture of their microsoft azure environment. Here is what you will get after conducting a project with our team:

A penetration test will evaluate the effectiveness of your current security measures, helping you understand whether they are adequate to protect your cloud-hosted assets from potential threats and improving your ability to prevent attacks.

By simulating targeted attacks in a safe and controlled manner, our penetration testing services will ensure that your infrastructure can withstand real-world threats and help develop additional measures to prevent potential breaches, giving you confidence that your critical assets and sensitive data are safe. 

Our team of experts will analyze the potential outcome of a successful breach on your Azure infrastructure for each vulnerability and security risk found, enabling you to prioritize remediation efforts and allocate resources efficiently.

Our team will identify all the security risks currently present within your infrastructure, ranging from technical vulnerabilities to vulnerable configurations and weak user roles, allowing you to systematically address these issues, strengthen your overall security posture and reduce your overall risk exposure.

By uncovering and addressing vulnerabilities, our penetration testing services will help you enhance the security of your cloud-hosted assets, protecting them from potential breaches that may leak sensitive data or lead to a takeover of your hosted infrastructure.

When Should You Perform a Microsoft Azure Penetration Test?

You should conduct penetration testing of your Microsoft Azure infrastructure regularly to identify and address vulnerabilities newly introduced vulnerabilities and stay up to date on the latest hacking techniques.

What Can Be Tested in the Microsoft Azure Ecosystem ?

Azure penetration tests differ from typical pentests. Disruptive types of attacks that may, for example, cause a denial of service (DDoS) are strictly prohibited, as they may cause inconveniences for other Azure users. Our experts have designed a comprehensive methodology to test Azure infrastructures that leave no stones unturned, while limiting any potential impact of our tests. Our Azure security tests target various components specific to Microsoft’s infrastructure:

Microsoft Azure

Office 365

azure penetration testing

Microsoft Intune

Microsoft Dynamics 365

Visual Studio Team Services

Azure penetration

Microsoft Accounts

Common Cybersecurity Risks & Vulnerabilities Identified

Our methodology covers an extensive attack surface, identifying vulnerabilities that are unique to your Azure infrastructure, as well as the most commonly found security risks in modern cloud-hosted environments:

This refers to the risks associated with weak access controls for Azure AD, which can allow attackers to gain unauthorized access to an organization’s Azure environment. 

(Database access and Application access) This vulnerability can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access to an organization’s Azure database and sensitive data stored within.

This vulnerability can be exploited by attackers to access sensitive data stored in an organization’s Azure environment.

This refers to the risks associated with weak access controls for privileged accounts, which can allow attackers to gain unauthorized access to an organization’s Azure environment.

This refers to the risks associated with insecure access permissions for Azure storage, which can allow attackers to steal sensitive data or leak information.

(Such as inadequate ingress/egress traffic routing) NSG issues can allow attackers to gain unauthorized access to an organization’s Azure environment by bypassing network security controls.

Azure Security Testing Guidelines

Microsoft provides a set of guidelines for azure penetration tests to prevent any potential impact on other users. Here are examples of techniques recommended by Microsoft to test the security of Azure infrastructures:

Attempt to break out of shared service containers

Test the enforcement of security policies

Test security monitoring and detection systems

Create dummy users to test cross-account data access

Microsoft's Shared Responsability Model

Microsoft provides secure tools to build your infrastructure, but it remains your responsibility to manage the security of any cloud-hosted assets. Our recommendations will help you take full advantage of Amazon’s security features, making it easier to build and maintain a secure environnement.

What is the purpose of conducting a penetration test of your Microsoft Azure?

The purpose of conducting Microsoft Azure Penetration Testing is to identify and address vulnerabilities within Microsoft Azure infrastructures that could be exploited by hackers.

Do we need Microsoft's approval for Azure penetration testing?

No, since June 2017, Microsoft no longer requires pre-approval to conduct penetration tests against Azure resources.

How is it performed? What is the process?

Our team of experts follows a comprehensive methodology that covers a range of tests targeting various components specific to Microsoft Azure infrastructure. We use a combination of manual and automated penetration testing techniques to identify vulnerabilities in your Azure environment.

What are the requirements to get started? Do we need to provide any access?

All we need to get started is access to your Azure environment and your permission to conduct the test. Any access requirements will be discussed with your team in a pre-launch call. Our experts will offer various solutions to access your environment in a secure manner.

Can your tests cause downtimes in our normal operations?

Our Azure penetration tests are designed to minimize disruption to your organization’s normal operations and the overwhelming majority of our tests are unnoticeable to our clients. Our team will work with you prior to the project launch to determine any areas that may be susceptible to affect your productivity and will take the necessary steps to minimize any potential impact.

How does this test fit into our overall cybersecurity strategy?

Given the sensitive nature of assets hosted in the environment and the reliance of modern business operations on cloud technologies, conduct a pentest of your Microsoft Azure has become a critical tool for organizations to ensure the security and the availability of their systems and maintain a robust security posture.

Can you test applications hosted on Azure?

Yes, Vumetric’s Azure Penetration Testing service can include testing applications hosted on Microsoft Azure, such as web applications or mobile applications. The testing can identify and address vulnerabilities within the application that could be exploited by attackers to gain access to sensitive data or disrupt service. The assessment can also evaluate the security of the Azure infrastructure hosting the application.

How long does it take?

The duration of the test depends on the complexity of the infrastructure and the scope of the assessment. Typically, it may take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to complete.


Professional Reporting With Clear & Actionable Results

Our penetration reports deliver more than a simple export from a security tool. Each vulnerability is exploited, measured and documented by an experienced specialist to ensure you fully understand its business impact.

Each element of the report provides concise and relevant information that contributes significantly towards improving your security posture and meeting compliance requirements:

Executive Summary

High level overview of your security posture, recommendations and risk management implications in a clear, non-technical language.
Suited for non-technical stakeholders.

Vulnerabilities & Recommendations
