Failure to protect critical online assets can result in financial costs and damage to your reputation. Penetration testing identifies vulnerabilities, validates existing controls, and, when done right, provides a roadmap for remediation.
RISIMS work on defined penetration testing methodology based on industry best practices. This ensures that you receive quality and repeatable results, and minimises the risk to your systems under test. Our Security team has a collection of penetration testing tools similar to those used by attackers on the internet – in conjunction with in-house developed, commercial, and the best of breed open source penetration tools. Or penetration test looks for and highlight security vulnerabilities in organization’s critical and strategic. This type of assessment is necessary to defend against increasing level of threats, from hacking, virus attack, to internal sabotage. Whether wireless or wired, credentialed or black-box, our team leverages the latest in vulnerabilities and exploits to provide a real-world simulation of an attack to discover the risks not considered in design and deployment.
As is apparent, there are many reasons penetration testing is conducted. Here are a few of the reasons organizations invest in penetration testing:
• Identifying vulnerabilities that may be difficult or impossible to detect with automated network or application vulnerability scanning software
• Identifying higher-risk vulnerabilities resulting from a combination of lower-risk vulnerabilities exploited in a particular sequence
• Assessing the magnitude of potential business and operational impacts of successful attacks
• Providing evidence to support increased investments in security personnel and technology to executive management and Board.
• Meeting regulatory compliance that requires both annual and ongoing penetration testing (after any system changes)
We produce a comprehensive report covering the approach taken, the techniques applied, and the vulnerabilities identified and make procedural and strategic recommendations to ensure that your systems are secure against future attack.
