Cloud Center of Excellence

Cloud infrastructure is quickly displacing datacenter and virtual-machine investments across all industries. Whether you’re building a new cloud-based application or migrating existing software to the cloud, security should be a paramount concern.

We have tested B2B, B2C, supply chain, private cloud-based applications, payment, e-commerce, online streaming media, and collaboration applications for global brands like HP, Discover, Sony, Symantec, and others.

Sample engagements include:

  • Security requirements & design review for mission-critical application migration to the cloud
  • Penetration test of consumer cloud printing services
  • Cloud application deployment review for IoT Web Services
  • Security analysis of cloud API gateways, middleware, multi-national infrastructure deployment, and data backup systems
