Security Challenges Tweed Faced

Tweed's ecosystem requires rigorous security audits, especially for software that deals with digital assets and payment details. While Tweed takes pride in the cybersecurity expertise of their technology team, they recognized the importance of having an independent third-party assessment of their systems to protect against hacks. Furthermore, as Tweed deals with sensitive data, they needed to make sure no manipulation or unauthorized access to its platform was possible. Completing the security audit with Halborn not only ensured the security of their platform but also provided the credibility needed to engage with more clients.

  • Web App Penetration Testing (Webapp Pentest): Tweed's web application was subjected to a rigorous penetration test by Halborn. This involved a white-box approach to uncover flaws in logic, processes, and implementation to enhance the security of the web application.
