Here are the stages of an advanced pentest engagement:
|1||Discover||You define what you need to test and contact the Cobalt Professional Services team.|
|2||Plan||We arrange a kickoff call to plan, scope, and schedule your pentest. During this stage, we:
|3||Test||The Cobalt Professional Services team tests your asset using the determined pentest methodology.
|4||Remediate||The testing process is complete. Remediate findings that pentesters discovered.
|5||Report||We share a report once the pentest engagement is complete.
|6||Analyze||Once the pentest is complete, analyze the security posture of your asset.
For advanced pentests run by the Cobalt Professional Services team, we support additional asset types, beyond our standard asset types. You may see these asset types in the Cobalt UI:
|IoT||An IoT ecosystem. As defined by NIST, an IoT device has at least one transducer (sensor or actuator) for interacting directly with the physical world and at least one network interface, such as Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth, for interfacing with the digital world.|
|Physical||An office, building, campus, or a physical device.|
|Thick Client||An application installed locally on a user’s computer.|
|Wireless Network||A network that allows devices to stay connected without using wires of any kind.|
|Other||Asset used in other advanced pentest engagements, such as phishing, read teaming, security hardening, and more.|
How to Launch a Pentest
A Specialized pentest that you see in the Cobalt UI is a pentest engagement conducted by the Cobalt Professional Services team.
To launch an advanced pentest, contact our Professional Services team at email@example.com. You can’t create an advanced pentest or set up a special asset in the UI—we’ll do that for you.
Once we’ve set up a Specialized pentest, you can:
- Edit asset details, except for the asset type.
- Edit pentest details. Some pentest parameters may slightly differ for Specialized pentests.
