Security Testing for Retail and Commerce

In the retail and commerce industry, you can’t afford to not consider yourself a tech company. If your business has mobile and web applications, with associated APIs, it needs the same rigorous pentesting as any SaaS organization. Securing your brand’s reputation and customer data has never been more important.

Benefits of the Synack Platform for Retail and Commerce


Secure PII Data

Breaches and data leaks hurt your brand and can lead to hefty fines. Creating a hardened attack surface and comprehensive security program requires full control and coverage with continuous pentesting.



We can launch tactical testing for compliance frameworks like PCI, SOC 2, and ISO27001 quickly and at scale. The Synack Red Team researchers complete compliance checklists (OWASP Top 10, NIST 800 – 53) that adhere to regulatory standards. Use our custom reports to keep regulators in the loop.


Cloud Security

Hybrid and multi-cloud environments are becoming the norm with digital transformation. To compete, you need to stay agile and make security decisions that don’t slow the business. Synack can help with continuous testing and configuration checklists for some public cloud providers.


Application Security

Your web and mobile applications and their APIs can introduce many opportunities for attackers. As you take on digital transformation, retail and commerce organizations need an application security solution that keeps vulnerabilities at bay while helping your dev teams to better secure their code before deployment.

On-Demand Security Researcher Community

Fierce competition for top cybersecurity talent can be a barrier exacerbated by a lack of budget or quickly changing priorities in your security program. The Synack Red Team consists of 1,500 diverse researchers across the globe. They’re rigorously vetted for their skills and reputation. Synack can provide surge capacity for internal pentesters, or provide you with a team on-demand.

API & Integrations

Synack can easily integrate into your security workflows and tools, reducing operational friction, improving responsiveness, triaging to reduce alert noise and validating security posture. Synack has integrations with ticket management tools (Jira, ServiceNow), Microsoft, Splunk, and more.

Testing Coverage

When pentesters typically perform an engagement, there’s little to no visibility into the testing performed. Synack’s Coverage Tab
provides auditable testing traffic. You can view attack surface tested, eyes on target, and types of attacks performed.

Global Retailer Finally Gets Vulnerability Data They Can Trust

Inconsistent vulnerability data and reports caused a red flag for a CISO of a large global retailer. Learn more about the disparity of vulnerability data across the company’s infrastructure and web applications, and how Synack’s continuous security testing resulted in 20x increase of vulnerabilities discovered and improved their security posture.
