Technical Testing

MAD Security's team of experts will assess your infrastructure in order to keep your business safe and provide peace of mind

Organizations turn to us for our ability to provide insight into potential attack vectors that exist within their environment and provide them with actionable deliverables that can be used to remediate issues.

MAD Security’s experts leave no stone unturned when assessing your devices and applications and feel a personal sense of responsibility in helping you make them as secure as possible.


Our penetration testing methodology, tools, and techniques are proven industry best practices that are based on a synthesis of several industry and professional best practices and standards including:

  • NIST Special Publication 800-115 Technical Guide to Information Security Testing and Assessment
  • ISECOM’s Open-Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM)
  • Information System Security Assessment Framework (ISSAF) from the OISSG
  • Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES)
  • The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Testing Guide


Organizations in all industries must defend themselves against constant attacks that come from both external and internal sources.

In MAD Security’s testing, we take the perspective of these threats and think in the same way a real-world attacker would.

Penetration Testing

  • Assess your environment from the perspective of an Internet-based or internal attacker.
  • Provides a realistic depiction of entry points in your environment and the potential damage that could be caused in the event of a real attack.

Application Security Testing

  • Assess your applications from multiple user and permission levels.
  • Discover misconfigurations and security weaknesses that could pose a risk to both your infrastructure or users of your application.

Red Team Testing

  • Assess your entire organization from the perspective of a real-world attacker.
  • Objective-based assessment that looks at every potential point of entry into infiltrating your organization’s environment through any available means.
