Engagement Summary

Samurai was engaged by the client to provide continual and comprehensive Penetration Testing across a wide variety of their business systems.

In combination with years of experience and expertise, Samurai used the OWASP testing methodology as the primary approach for the Penetration Testing projects. While the unique nature of the client’s systems can pose challenges, the Samurai team effectively navigated these obstacles and identified various improvements to be made on the system. Throughout the engagement, Samurai collaborated closely with the client to implement the improvements and worked hard to enhance their overall security posture.
