The 2022 Russia-Ukraine Conflict created new threats to cybersecurity, not just abroad, but in the US as well.

An energy company (who’s real name is kept private for security reasons) sought out Red Sentry’s help to test their cyber environment and stay secure from the most common vulnerabilities Russian hackers were using.


In early 2022, Russian state-sponsored hackers began specifically targeting US energy companies, which posed a serious threat to American infrastructure.

The FBI and other government entities warned these companies of DDoS attacks (distributed denial), which interrupt services and are especially detrimental to companies in the energy, gas and oil industries.

At the same time, organizations like our client have a hard time finding offensive cybersecurity companies they can trust because of the sensitive nature of their data.


The energy company engaged with Red Sentry and other providers to find the best partner for them, and after thorough due diligence decided that they wanted to entrust Red Sentry with this large penetration testing project.

Red Sentry was scanned through BitSight and found to be a secure vendor option.

Red Sentry conducted a penetration test of their entire environment to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses


167 TOTAL FINDINGS were uncovered by our team of experts.

Among numerous other findings, Red Sentry was able to gain access to all phones and conference sessions within the organization.

The findings have since been remediated and retested, shoring up the environment and hardening the target from external hackers.


With attacks coming from all angles, it’s hard to gain peace of mind in this era.

Our client can now feel secure knowing that they have a strong environment, and continue to focus on serving the public with the energy they need.


Not only did the organization get a thorough penetration test that led them to find and remediate vulnerabilities, but they’re now using Red Sentry’s continuous vulnerability platform on a daily basis, so that if a new vulnerability pops up, they’ll be ready.

Red Sentry is quickly becoming the partner of choice for growing businesses.

"The Healthcare sector has been heavily affected by cyber attacks this past year. As we have so much sensitive data in our business, security is one of my main concerns. Since we’ve been using Red Sentry, I feel more confident because my team knows which patches need to be applied first and how to test them afterwards.”
Dana White
CTO, American Cosmetic Surgery Network
"We hold most of our data inside our Cloud infrastructure, which not many cybersecurity companies are focused on. Being able to have a thorough look at our Cloud security allows us to report our status to our clients and assure them we are taking a proactive approach to cybersecurity.”

Check out our pentesting options below.

Mobile App Pentests
A mobile application pentest is the process of approaching a native or mobile application whether that is iOS or Android, and finding vulnerabilities that would be utilized by a hacker to harm the application with malicious intent.

Once access to the mobile application is granted, all of the models/API endpoints are enumerated, if applicable, the source code is analyzed to look for misconfigurations and sensitive data exposed, the technology stack used is analyzed as well to look for potential CVEs, and the permissions schema is tested to look for broken access controls and privilege escalation possibilities. Overall, the test is conducted following the OWASP Top 10 Mobile methodology.

Web Application Pentest
A web application pentest is a type of pentest where the target is an application running, usually, behind an authentication mechanism (like a login).

After scoping, the assessment team tries to access every page of the application and look for the different requests made. From that list, a set of possible attacks is made and then executed to prove impact. A usual requirement here is to look for vulnerabilities that allow a basic user to access either to an admin’s or to another user’s data.

Cloud Pentest
A cloud pentest assesses the security of your Cloud Infrastructure to ensure that if a hacker were to approach the environment, there would be no vulnerabilities they could utilize for malicious intent. This could take place in AWS, Azure, GCP, M365, Digital Ocean, and more.

A cloud engagement will look for different misconfigurations inside a Cloud environment that can turn a malicious insider task much easier. The assessment team will look for issues related to the authentication mechanism being used and the virtual assets inside the infrastructure, like database instances, containers, storage buckets and running applications. We will need access to the cloud environment with read only or security audit access to conduct testing. After we gain access to the Cloud, we run a couple of tools to look for both technical and user-generated misconfigurations.

External Pentest
An external pentest tests the security of the publicly facing assets of a company in order to ensure that if a hacker were to approach, they would not be able to leverage any vulnerabilities for an attack.

After scoping, an asset discovery is performed to collect all of the active host + port combinations. Once done, we start looking for potential exploits either by searching CVEs associated with the technology stack behind the service running on a certain port, or by performing a set of standard attacks.
Additionally, we look for breached credentials which are still valid on different platforms.

Internal Pentest
Internal pentests test the security of your company's internal network through a VPN and active directory.

We use different techniques to map the
inside network and then go through a discovery process where we look for privilege
escalation, targets for brute-force attacks, control over traffic data and common
vulnerabilities which could give us access to sensitive information that a regular
user shouldn’t have access to. Depending on the approach chosen, those
vulnerabilities could then be exploited as well.
