Identifying Vulnerabilities is the First Step for Improvements
Today’s cyber attacks continue to get more sophisticated while the attack surfaces within businesses of all shapes and sizes become more complex. Creating a smart defense plan is only one piece of the puzzle. Businesses need to assess risk across their entire environment, then conduct testing to evaluate the security plan from end to end.
We offer penetration testing using the same tools, techniques, and processes as attackers to find and demonstrate the business impacts of weaknesses in a system, simulating a variety of attacks that could threaten a business. Ensure your defense strategies are robust enough to withstand attacks.
Are You Consistently Assessing Risk?
Best-in-class vulnerability testing tools scan your environment for internal and external risks so no ‘doors’ are left unlocked.
A vulnerability scan identifies potential weak points, then pen testing helps determine the readiness of your current cybersecurity controls.
Cybersecurity professionals help monitor part of your environment (e.g. fully managed security operations center), or all of it (e.g. antivirus protection, firewalls, email)
User Awareness Training
Prepare a smart user awareness training program to test and instill diligent cybersecurity habits in employees at every level of the organization.
Penetration Testing Phases
Gather as much information about the target (environment area) as possible from public and private sources to inform the attack strategy to map out target’s attack surface and possible vulnerabilities.
Examine the target environment or system for weaknesses, including open services, application security issues, and open source vulnerabilities, using specific tools used for various vulnerability types.
Mimic various attack scenarios to determine the best tools and techniques to gain access to the system, whether through a weakness such as SQL injection or through malware, social engineering, etc.
Determine if tester is able to stay connected long enough to accomplish the goals of the engagement and effectively demonstrate the potential impact.
Establish testing on a consistent basis. Pro Tip: Change up or rotate testers for best results – we can help – and conduct internal and external tests.
