Business Benefits

Overall, the security testing aimed at identifying existing exploits and any areas that were not in line with current best practices – by improving these areas, potential risks were removed before they could be manipulated or exposed.

    • Direct penetration testing showed exactly where Coople’s system held up – and where it could be improved.
    • By exploring angles that hadn’t previously been considered, the system could be improved further to make potential attacks even less likely.
    • Insecure privileges can let unwanted individuals gain access to areas they are not supposed to – we designed the system to exclude that possibility.
    • Coople process vast amounts of personal data – we tested and verified that this was secure and could not be accessed unintentionally.

Business Need

Having already moved to the AWS Cloud, Coople wanted to ensure that it was using this environment to its fullest, as well as remove any unforeseen risks in the process. To meet all of these criteria, they chose to undertake a thorough audit of the Cloud architecture.
The AWS Well-Architected Framework looks at five key pillars (Operational Excellence, Security, Reliability, Performance Evaluation, Cost Optimization) but Security took center stage in this case.

Our users trust us with their personal data, including, for example, their identification and bank account details. Data security is therefore an absolute priority for us, and we are committed to regularly reviewing our processes to ensure that we follow best practice. PGS Software’s strong knowledge in this area has helped us to complete this review efficiently.
