Vulnerability Assessments Penetration Testing

Vulnerability Assessments:

Through a combination of information gathering and vulnerability scanning (network based, host based, credentialed, and non-credentialed), interviews with system administration personnel to discuss processes, procedures, and finally disaster preparedness, our technicians will establish a clear sight picture of your organizations current security posture and mission essential functions.

Our analysts will then assess the impact of discovered vulnerabilities as they relate to your environment. This allows us to produce a tailored mitigation strategy that accounts for the cost and complexity of implementation, burden to the workforce, and weighs that against the reduction in risk achieved by each mitigation.

In cases where material solutions and/or training are desired, we will work with you and your staff as trusted advisors helping you identify and down-select the best vendor or product to meet your needs.

Penetration Testing:

Our industry certified pen-testers will exercise the same information gathering techniques used during a vulnerability assessment but will also employ common threat tactics such as social engineering, deception, technical circumvention, and custom exploits to get into your system. The pen-test team will stimulate your organizations security posture with events that mimic the myriad of threats in today's environment. When used as a training aid, the pen-test provides valuable experience for your IT staff, exposing them to cyber threats and allowing them to quickly recognize and react to real world events when they occur in the future.

Through in-depth discussions with our technical experts, we will help you define and document the test scope. The pen-test team will then tailor the test events to focus and optimize the net result to suit your organizations goals.

Benefits of penetration testing include:
  • Safeguarding your data from items such as financial fraud or lost revenue due to unreliable IT solutions, weak processes and procedures, or insecure system configurations
  • Providing compliance with applicable laws and industry regulations
  • Satisfying moral obligations to perform due-diligence to your client's data and shareholder assets
  • Protecting your brand (avoiding business reputation and consumer confidence losses)
  • Optimizing your IT security and budgetary strategy by maximizing the investment in the right security solution
