Microsoft Azure Penetration Testing



With the rise of digital transformation and the cost-effectiveness of Azure AD Active Directory usage, many corporate entities are shifting towards Azure services. Azure’s hybrid technology introduces access control risks, particularly from On-Prem to Cloud infrastructure transitions. However, this transition isn’t straightforward; there exist multiple security risks that could lead to accessing the On-Prem Active Directory controller through a compromised cloud system. Additionally, logging into Azure AD via On-Prem Windows systems is also feasible. Attackers actively seek out such vulnerabilities to exploit, including those present in web applications hosted on Azure. Consequently, both On-Prem and on-cloud active directory infrastructures are vulnerable to exploitation.

In light of these risks, it is strongly recommended that organizations incorporate Azure AD into their penetration testing routines, regardless of their internal or external network configurations.



Why Prioritize Security for Your Mobile Application?


Enhance Organizational Risk Management Through Strengthened Cloud Security

Regardless of whether you’re transitioning to Azure, crafting cloud-native applications within Azure, leveraging Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), or conducting annual Azure penetration testing for regulatory compliance, fortifying the security of your Microsoft Azure infrastructure is paramount. Our Methodology:

Is Microsoft's Approval Necessary for Azure Penetration Testing?
No, you do not need prior approval from Microsoft to conduct penetration testing on Azure resources. Since June 2017, Microsoft has eliminated the requirement for pre-approval. Microsoft acknowledges that while they do not perform penetration testing on your application, they understand the importance of organizations conducting their own testing. This proactive approach enhances application security and contributes to the overall security of the Azure ecosystem.
