Microsoft Azure Penetration Testing

"Why settle for just a cloud when you can test it for holes like Swiss cheese?"
"Why worry about vulnerabilities? Just invite the hackers over for tea and let them point out all the weaknesses for you."

Microsoft Azure Penetration Testing

Microsoft Azure penetration testing is a security assessment that involves testing the security of Microsoft Azure environments and applications by simulating an attack from a malicious actor. The purpose of this testing is to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could potentially be exploited by an attacker, and to recommend measures to improve the security posture of the Azure environment. This testing typically involves a combination of automated and manual techniques, including network and application-level testing, as well as testing of the underlying infrastructure and configurations. It is important for organizations using Microsoft Azure to regularly perform penetration testing to ensure that their environments are secure and compliant with industry standards and best practices.

Microsoft Azure Penetration Testing

As digiALERT, we perform Microsoft Azure penetration testing to ensure the security and integrity of our customer's systems and data on the Azure platform. This process involves simulating real-world attacks on systems and applications running on Azure, to determine their level of resistance and identify potential vulnerabilities. By identifying and addressing these vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers, we help to prevent data breaches and other security incidents.

To conduct the Microsoft Azure penetration testing, our team use specialized tools and techniques to simulate various types of attacks, such as network penetration testing, web application testing, and social engineering testing, and analyzing the system's response. By performing this type of testing regularly, we help our customer to ensure the security and integrity of their systems and data, and also to comply with industry standards and regulatory requirements.

Statistics on
Microsoft Azure Penetration Testing

According to a 2021 report by cybersecurity firm Sophos, over 4,000 Azure instances were found to have been infected with the XMRig cryptocurrency mining malware, highlighting the need for strong security measures to protect cloud environments from cyber threats.
In 2021, a researcher discovered a vulnerability in Azure Functions, which could allow attackers to execute arbitrary code and take over the target's Azure account. Microsoft quickly issued a patch for the vulnerability.
According to a 2020 report by cybersecurity firm Barracuda Networks, misconfigured security settings in Azure Blob storage led to several high-profile data breaches, including the Capital One breach, which exposed the data of over 100 million customers.
Microsoft reported a 100% increase in Azure security incidents between 2019 and 2020, with account compromise being the most common type of incident.
In a 2020 report, cloud security firm RedLock found that 93% of organizations using cloud services had experienced security incidents, with the most common types of incidents being compromised credentials, misconfigurations, and unauthorized access.
According to a 2020 report by cyber risk management firm Cybeta, the average cost of a cloud security incident for a mid-sized organization is $2.3 million. The report highlights the importance of having strong security measures in place to prevent and mitigate such incidents in Azure and other cloud environments.

How do we do
Microsoft Azure Penetration Testing

As a digiALERT, the following steps can be followed to perform a Microsoft Azure penetration testing:
  1. Scope definition: Clearly define the scope of the testing, including the systems and networks to be tested and any limitations or exclusions.
  2. Information gathering: Collect relevant information about the target systems and networks, such as IP addresses, domain names, and network infrastructure.
  3. Vulnerability assessment: Identify vulnerabilities in the systems and networks through the use of various tools and techniques, such as network scanning, application testing, and manual testing.
  4. Exploitation: Attempt to exploit vulnerabilities to gain access to the systems and networks.
  5. Reporting: Document the findings of the testing, including details of the vulnerabilities discovered and the methods used to exploit them.
  6. Remediation: Work with the client to implement measures to mitigate or fix the vulnerabilities discovered during the testing.
  7. Follow-up testing: Perform additional testing to verify that the vulnerabilities have been successfully addressed.


Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure created by Microsoft for building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers. It provides a range of cloud services, including those for computing, analytics, storage, and networking. Users can choose and configure these services to meet their specific needs.


Due to the sensitivity and importance of the data and applications hosted on Azure, it is essential to ensure the security of the platform. This is where Azure penetration testing comes in. It is a simulated cyber attack on the Azure infrastructure to test the system's defenses and identify any weaknesses that could be exploited by malicious actors. This testing is crucial for organizations using Azure to protect their data and applications from potential threats and vulnerabilities. It is also important for ensuring compliance with industry and regulatory standards.

How often Microsoft Azure Penetration Testing recommended
When it would be performed

Microsoft Azure penetration testing is a process that involves simulating a cyber attack on an organization's Azure cloud infrastructure in order to identify vulnerabilities and assess the effectiveness of the organization's security measures. It is recommended that organizations perform Azure penetration testing on a regular basis in order to stay ahead of potential threats and ensure that their cloud infrastructure is secure. This can be especially important for organizations that handle sensitive data or that are subject to regulatory compliance requirements, as a breach of their cloud infrastructure could have serious consequences. Some organizations may choose to perform Azure penetration testing on a quarterly or annual basis, while others may choose to do it more frequently depending on their risk profile and the potential impact of a security breach. Ultimately, the frequency of Azure penetration testing should be determined by the organization's risk assessment and its goals for ensuring the security of its cloud infrastructure.
