Web Application Pentest
Our web application pentest service leverages the OWASP ASV and OWASP Testing Guide.
Web Application Pentest
Cobalt’s web application penetration testing service leverages the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) and the OWASP Testing Guide. Together, these create a comprehensive framework for assessing the security of web-based applications, and form the foundation for our web application assessment methodology. On top of OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, Cobalt Core pentesters also manually test the security of specific business logic associated with the web application such as weaknesses in data validation or integrity checks — flaws that can only be discovered through manual testing, not automated vulnerability scanning.
API Pentest
Cobalt tests web-based APIs, REST APIs, and mobile APIs.
API Pentest
API penetration testing is very similar to web application penetration testing and so the Cobalt API pentesting methodology is based on the same foundation — the OWASP Top 10, the OWASP ASVS, and the OWASP Testing Guide. Cobalt tests web-based APIs, REST APIs, and mobile APIs. Cobalt Core pentesters analyze the target API to determine which authentication type is used, study API structures, understand request methods, responses, roles, and exploit bugs on a real production API or an API in a staging environment.
Mobile Application Pentest
Test for applications on all mobile platforms, including iOS, Android, and Windows.
Mobile Application Pentest
Cobalt's skilled pentesters excel at more than just identifying common API and web vulnerabilities. By employing manual pentesting techniques, our experts thoroughly assess your mobile application's risk, utilizing the OWASP Mobile Top 10 and other proven methodologies to ensure robust security. Experience the difference of partnering with Cobalt, a trusted pentest provider, for comprehensive and reliable security evaluations customized to your needs.
External Network Pentest
Cobalt can test external networks for any hosting service, without network or infrastructure diagrams or additional user information.
External Network Pentest
Cobalt Core pentesters will carry out the testing without detailed network or infrastructure diagrams and without any accounts or additional user information (unless required as part of the scope). Testers follow a standard methodology based on Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM). The External Network test can be limited to a specific IP range or include more wide reconnaissance using OSINT (open-source intelligence).
Internal Network Pentest
Cobalt pentesters examine internal networks for weaknesses and misconfigurations that could allow an attacker with internal access to view or exfiltrate sensitive resources.
Internal Network Pentest

Cobalt pentesters follow a standard methodology based on the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM). Starting with network scanning and reconnaissance, testers search for credentials, password hashes, or other information that could get them access to Internal accounts or resources, attempting to escalate privileges to try and get Local or Domain Administrator access. Testers can also test for network segmentation required for PCI DSS compliance. 

Cloud Config Review

For Cobalt’s cloud config review, a Cobalt Core pentester carries out an assessment over the cloud environment and all of its internal and external components. 

Cloud Config Review
For Cobalt’s cloud config review, a Cobalt Core pentester carries out an assessment over the cloud environment and all of its internal and external components. We follow an industry standard methodology primarily based on the standards supported by Amazon Web Service (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure paired with security testing methodologies such as OWASP ASVS and Top 10.

“A good pentest for us is the right people, doing the right tests. But then it’s also communicating that effectively and then partnering with our organization in order to actually close those vulnerabilities once they’ve been found.”
