Microsoft Azure Penetration Testing is simply testing assets (web applications, networks, and network devices) in the Azure environment. Azure encourages penetration testing of assets in their environment, however, penetration testers and clients must adhere to their rules of engagement. RedTeam Security does not intentionally violate these rules of engagement.
An Azure penetration test will look much like any other penetration test, it includes searching for vulnerabilities in Azure cloud environments in addition to on-premise ones and then attempting to exploit those vulnerabilities to assess the true risk to your organization. Our team will use many of the same tools and techniques as any network or web application penetration test. In addition, when reviewing Azure cloud security, some of the techniques we use will look a little different and we will often use special tools.
RedTeam Security’s cloud pen testing includes three different attack vectors within the Azure platform:
RedTeam Security uses PTES as the framework for our comprehensive standard network penetration testing, and our web application penetration testing focuses on identifying OWASP's Top 10 vulnerabilities.
During Azure penetration testing engagements, we utilize many of the same techniques employed for standard penetration testing engagements while also checking for Azure-specific misconfigurations and security vulnerabilities. These checks may include testing for publicly accessible storage accounts, improperly scoped Azure role-based access controls (RBACs), weak password policies, guest access, and seeking to penetrate on-premises Windows Active Directory systems synced to the cloud using Azure Active Directory Connect.

Our comprehensive Azure pen testing services will help you ensure that your cloud infrastructure is designed and configured according to best practices. The report will provide an analysis of the current state of your Azure environment (application security, network security, and Azure portal) and help you prioritize which vulnerabilities to consider for remediation first and how best to use your budget to maximize strength and resilience in your security posture.
