Our product security assessment service is designed to help you ascertain how well a product has been developed from a security perspective and the level to which it might stand up to relevant cyber threats.
Whether it's your product, or one you're thinking about buying, using or recommending, we'll attack it like a hacker would, to find any obvious vulnerabilities and likely areas of weakness.
Examples of products we can test:
- Embedded systems such as routers, printers, storage devices
- Enterprise VPN solutions,
- Enterprise mobile applications,
- Vehicle trackers
- Mobile and IoT products that have a security implication
Product security testing
This service is designed to deliver the level of assurance for the appropriate threats. It is not a full product assurance process, which can take many weeks (if you do want that, or want to sell to UK Government, look into CPA or CTAS), but a way of achieving a pragmatic measure of assurance in the security of a product.
Each assessment is tailored to the product and to your requirements. We will work with you to determine a suitable scope for the evaluation, taking into account the likely threat to the product and the impact of a breach in security.
Features of our product security testing service:
- Hardware teardown
- Firmware dumping and boot process modification
- Firmware analysis and firmware update protections
- Device configuration and storage protection
- Network protocol testing
- Bluetooth testing
- Web server fuzzing and crash analysis
- Open investigation
