Manage the Risk
A penetration test will show you the list of vulnerabilities in the target environment and the risks associated with it. Each risk is categorized as either critical, medium, or low-risk issues. Knowing your level of risk will help you prioritize remediation.
Evaluate Security Investments
Penetration testing will help show if your current security infrastructure is strong enough to withstand a cyberattack. As a result, it will show you what security technologies are worth your time and money.
Increase Confidence in Security Posture
By regularly putting your security infrastructure and team through their paces, you’ll know how your organization will fare during a real-time attack. With each pen test, your team will grow and learn from their mistakes.
Increase Business Continuity
Cyberattacks hurt business continuity. And insecure systems suffer from more downtime than secure ones. Penetration testing will show you your vulnerabilities. And if you address those issues, the likelihood of experiencing downtime is minimal.
Verify Existing Security Programs
The only way to know if your security tools work is to test them. Pen tests serve as quality assurance checks, so you will also find out what policies are most effective and what tools provide the highest ROI.
Meet Regulatory Requirements
Penetration testing helps organizations address the compliance aspects of regulations and industry best practices. And for auditors, these tests can also verify that other mandated security measures are in place.
1. Company Overview
We will meet with you, either in-person or online, to discuss your business’s current security posture. We will then define your goals for the pen test and gather intelligence on your infrastructure.
3. Gain Access
After the scan, our testers will know where to attack to gain access to your network. During this step, our testers will use manual and automated attacks to compromise servers, end-users, applications, wireless networks, and devices.
After the pen test, the results will make their way into a detailed report. In the analysis, you’ll learn what vulnerabilities were exploited, what sensitive data was accessed, and the amount of time the pen tester was able to remain undetected in your system.
Now, it is time to begin the penetration test. During this first phase of the pen test, our testers will use scanning tools to understand how your business’s network and systems respond to intrusions.
4. Maintain Access
Once our testers break through, they will now try to maintain their foothold. They will use advanced persistent threats (APTs) to grant themselves unauthorized access to the targeted network.
