Databases hold valuable business assets such as sensitive customer data, payment card details, product and pricing data, employee records, blueprints, intellectual property and supplier information. These data shouldn’t end up in the wrong hands or be compromised in other ways. it can cause you to be left facing financial and reputational damages.
Database Penetration testing should ideally be conducted on a regular basis and not just at the point of going live with a new database.
The information contained within these databases is not only critical from a confidentiality, integrity and availability perspective but is essential to the company’s ability to operate as a going concern and requires specialist knowledge to identify the risks associated with a data breach.
The main target of database security testing is to find out vulnerabilities in a system and to determine whether its data and resources are protected from potential intruders. Security testing defines a way to identify potential vulnerabilities effectively, when performed regularly.
Given below are the primary objectives of performing database security testing
We perform Black Box and White Box database penetration testing.
We follow owasp standard while pen testing and auditing database security.
1. Security Lock
2. We will provide 2 reports for every scan performed
Detailed Report – This is a technical report after completion of the pen test. The report will highlight the weaknesses in the Web Application that affect the availability, reliability and integrity of information assets. It will also provide the solutions for covering each identified risk. This report will contain the following:
1. Categorization of weaknesses based on risk level
2. Details of security holes discovered
3. Emergency quick-fix solution for discovered vulnerabilities
Executive Report – It gives the bird eye view for the complete assessment done which contains overall details of the identified vulnerabilities, operational impact of each vulnerability, potential financial impact along with the criticality of the identified gap. It also gives suggested priorities for the patch work.
