Client Background

Twala helps businesses to legally and securely sign, and manage tamper-proof documents online with its blockchain digital signature and ID verification services. Furthermore, their platform manages sensitive data and critical documents of businesses.

Twala is compliant with the Philippines' E-Commerce Act and Supreme Court's Rules on Electronic Evidence. They are also legally accepted in other jurisdictions such as the US, EU, ASEAN, and many more. However, to meet regulatory security requirements and fend off cyberattacks, Twala needed a security partner to go beyond the traditional penetration testing and provide a real-world simulation of threats.


Twala had the following challenges about cybersecurity:

  • Make sure their platform is secure from all possible data breaches
  • Validate the security measures implemented against unauthorized logins
  • Make sure that identities in the Twala system cannot be taken over by malicious actors
  • Identify if there are sensitive data leakages in their platform
  • They had to engage with a cybersecurity firm that is certified by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) that is reasonably priced

Why Secuna

Twala Management realized that only qualified and experienced penetration testers could effectively test their platform, to identify security vulnerabilities, and verify if security measures are correctly implemented; before cybercriminals could exploit them.
