CREST certified pen testing Outpost24

At Outpost24 we are delighted to announce we’ve been awarded accredited member status by CREST, one of the most prestigious certification bodies for cybersecurity excellence. This accreditation initially certifies Outpost24’s Penetration Testing services across the web application product portfolio, and we’re working hard to add more categories in the very near future. This achievement demonstrates our dedication to delivering elite standard security services in application security testing, that’s rubber stamped by an industry recognized body. See our press release.

The Council for Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST) is a not-for-profit accreditation and certification body representing the technical information security industry. All CREST member companies must undergo a rigorous assessment of their services, processes and quality to ensure consistency of knowledge against the evolving security backdrop and are required to repeat the assessment every three years to ensure the highest standards are upheld.

Pen testing is a vital part of cyber security strategy as it simulates a hacking scenario and provides you with important information about your defenses that may have otherwise been missed. Outpost24 penetration testers have the skills to match a modern-day threat actor by using their ethical hacking background and leverage the same Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs) an adversary would use to identify security weaknesses in your web application infrastructure so you can take the right actions and steps to mitigate against this.

The CREST certification underlines our commitment to ensuring our business processes, people and security testing methodologies are maintained at the highest level at all times. As such, our customers can be confident that they are receiving industry trusted and fully optimized application security services, performed by highly-skilled, knowledgeable, and competent security professionals as a part of our web application security testing solutions. 

Product solutions certified under CREST include:

  • Assure/Snapshot: time-boxed manual web application pen test delivered by our highly trained ethical hackers for quick security assurance checks (Assure) or deep security analysis before application launch or major changes (Snapshot).
  • SWAT: our premium, hybrid continuous application security testing solution combining automated scanning with manual pen testing for the most complete coverage for critical web applications that your business relies on.

Our Cyber Security experts are at the heart of what we do and how we help customers stay ahead of imminent threats. It is their expertise and experiences that have allows us to spot security flaws and do so from the hacker’s perspective to understand the context of potential attack paths, ensuring nothing slips through the net and could disrupt our customers’ business operations
