Criticality of Vulnerabilities
Proactive identification of the criticality of the vulnerabilities and false positives given by the automated scanners. This helps in prioritizing the remedy action, whether the vulnerability is to be patched immediately or not based on the criticality.
Penetration testing helps comply with the audit regulatory standards like PCI DSS, HIPAA and GLBA. This avoids the huge fines for non-compliance.
Cost of Compliance
A security breach may cost heavily to an organization. There may be a network downtime leading to a heavy business loss. Penetration testing helps in avoiding these financial falls by identifying and addressing the risks.
The IT infrastructure is becoming more complex and wider. The internal networks have been given access over the internet to the legitimate users along with the user credentials and the privilege level, outside the firewall, which increases the surface of attack. Such infrastructure needs to be assessed regularly for security threats.
Identification of what type of resources are exposed to the outer world, determining the security risk involved in it, detecting the possible types of attacks and preventing those attacks.
Information gathering & Network Discovery
We gather information such as Active Hosts, Active Services, Insecure Services, Fingerprinting the Operating System, Services and links and internet surfing related to this, etc.
Scanning and enumeration
This process involves port scanning, service detection, and OS fingerprints.
Gaining access involves vulnerability assessment and exploiting.
Remedial Action Identification
In this phase, our security analysts prepare the remedial actions for the threats and vulnerabilities discovered in the previous phases.
Reporting & Re-Testing
A detailed report of the findings, recommendations on remediation are submitted. On successful remediation, a retest is performed to validate the effectiveness of the fixes applied
