Have you ever requested a penetration test service and get hundreds of findings in a report called “Penetration test” listing vulnerabilities just detected by a scanning tool? Well, you are not the only one.
The problem is quite common, as many providers offer penetration testing that turns out to be vulnerability assessment. Our services will help you to protect your weakest areas and to empower your employees becoming the first line of defense.
Where shall I start?
Always start finding the weakest points, with a vulnerability assessment. We offer vulnerability assessments which will help to identify vulnerabilities in a network. It is the process through which we identify the weak points that could be exploited on your network, along with how important the associate threat really is. We conduct a thorough analysis to determine the attack surface that exposed, and correlates it with a risk value to determine your security posture.
Vulnerability assessments are more exhaustive than penetration testing because they take a holistic approach to analyze your overall security configuration, rather than focusing on attack vectors.
Pro-active approach to security
Difference between vulnerability assessment and penetration testing
Vulnerability assessment focuses on uncovering as many security weaknesses as possible (breadth over depth approach). It should be employed on a regular basis to maintain a network’s secure status, especially when network changes are introduced (e.g., new equipment installed, services added, ports opened). Also, it will suit to organizations which are not security mature and want to know all possible security weaknesses.
Penetration testing, in its turn, is preferable, when the customer asserts that network security defenses are strong, but wants to check if they are hack-proof (depth over breadth approach).
Identify known security exposures before attackers find them.
Create an inventory of all the devices on the network, including purpose and system information. This also includes vulnerabilities associated with a specific device.
Create an inventory of all devices in the enterprise to help with the planning of upgrades and future assessments.
Define the level of risk that exists on the network.
Establish a business risk/benefit curve and optimize security investments.
Security awareness campaigns to train your employees to protect your company assets.
What do we offer?
Determine the hardware and software assets to assess and the criticality (quantifiable value) of these assets
Identification of the security vulnerabilities impacting the assets
Definition of quantifiable threat or risk score for each vulnerability
Define remediation actions to mitigate the highest risk vulnerabilities from the most valuable assets
Implement remediation Plan
Because it is necessary to educate your users to avoid future security breaches
The key elements are to understand the vulnerabilities present in the environment, to respond accordingly with a remediation plan and to provide your employees the right education and awareness to become a human firewall
