Synack’s hacker-powered security intelligence solution is a full-service offering that encompasses the trusted, controlled aspect of a high-touch penetration testing service with the diversity, continuity, and incentive-driven nature of Bug Bounty. We fuse the best features of Application Security Testing tools, Penetration Testing engagements, and Bug Bounty programs together to deliver a pragmatic approach to digital security. This allows us to provide a proactive approach to penetration testing from a truly adversarial perspective—detecting and reporting vulnerabilities within web applications, host infrastructure, and connected IoT devices that often remain undetected by traditional security solutions. In a world where the enterprise is being attacked all the time, a proactive offense is the best defense.
According to Gartner, over 95% of all web applications are vulnerable. Additionally, 75% of all data breaches originate from insecure web apps. Traditional penetration testing solutions only test against OWASP Top 10 standards. While it's important to test against the top 10 attack vectors, it's critical to test beyond OWASP Top 10 and embrace a true adversarial approach to testing. Real-world attackers will not give up after 10 failed attack types—they will breach your system by any means possible.
Enterprise, host-based infrastructure is highly dynamic, requiring changes to be tracked on a regular basis. Outdated IT infrastructure and misconfigurations can inject new vulnerabilities which reside in service flaws, network misconfigurations, and operating systems.
Mobile apps are dependent on third-party code and the app stores that hosts them. If a mobile app has a confirmed vulnerability in it's codebase, it could take weeks before the patched version is made available to the public. If it integrates with third-party libraries, user-privacy liability issues may arise. Vulnerabilities residing in third-party code may also create exploitation opportunities in your mobile apps.
Internet-connected embedded devices—the “Internet of Things”—will introduce a trillion points of vulnerabilities. Opportunities are ripe for adversaries as every single device in the IoT ecosystem represents a potential risk. Gartner predicts that by 2020, the IoT base will grow to 26 billion units. Additionally, more than 25 percent of identified attacks in enterprises will involve IoT.
Enumerates the attack surface and provides assurance around attack attempts with vulnerability correlation.
Analytics within our report allow you to assess the resistance levels of your assets over time.
Hydra monitors any external changes detected within the client's attack surface and notifies the SRT; efficiently allowing them to materialize new vulnerabilities without wasting time on repeated reconnaissance.
Fully triaged vulnerability reports containing step-by-step reproduction instructions and remediation suggestions.
Mission Ops and/or SRT members test vulnerability patches upon remediation to ensure the vulnerability has effectively been patched.
Synack’s assurance and audit logging capabilities provide additional layers of transparency and trust.
Plug-and-play, fully testing IDS signatures and WAF rules that help you identify and prevent any further exploitation of the vulnerability.
A searchable platform with both open source and proprietary plugins with researcher specific custom alerts.
With RESTful APIs Synack allows integration with external GRC and SIEM solutions, as well as bug tracking tools such as Jira.
The SRT discovers and submits vulnerabilities to the Synack Mission Ops team, which then manages, triages, and prioritizes them. SRT members test vulnerability patches upon remediation to ensure the vulnerability has effectively been patched. Incident advisory from the Synack Mission Ops team assures you of a swift response when incidents do happen.
Hydra provides an analytics-based approach to scanning for vulnerabilities and surfacing changes relevant to security researchers. Through proprietary search algorithms, Hydra maps the entire attack surface and continuously simulates evolving attack patterns. The resulting discoveries are delivered to the SRT which allows them to focus their efforts on adversarial-based exploitation.
