Cybersecurity Testing

Vulnerability Assessment

During a vulnerability assessment, our trained IT professionals analyze your network for security vulnerabilities, or weaknesses. We investigate workstations, firewalls, servers, and wireless connections.

We approach vulnerability testing by following a proven-effective sequence of steps:

  1. Take an inventory of the system.
  2. Assign a level of importance to each component (how critical is it for the component in question to be secure?)
  3. Scan each component for threats and vulnerabilities, finding the weaknesses of the components.
  4. Prioritize the most crucial of the identified vulnerabilities to quickly improve your network security stance.

Penetration Testing (Pen Testing)

Vulnerability testing looks for vulnerabilities by looking at information presented by the server. This provides a very good look that covers most things. To get an even better look into the security of a server, a penetration test, or “pen test for short, should be run.

A penetration test is a purposeful software attack on a computer system with the intent of uncovering a network’s security weaknesses (how easily can data be extracted from the computer system?).

  1. Identify the target systems and define the goal of the testing.
  2. Review the available information and take the necessary actions, such as performing an attack on the system.

By completing these actions, we can determine if a system is vulnerable to cyberattacks by assessing its performance during the strenuous and purposeful attack.

Performing a penetration test will put significant pressure on a network’s defenses to determine if the network can be broken down or if the security measures are sufficient. Upon completion, we provide a high-level report of the results to the business owner or executive(s) with recommendations for eliminating the weaknesses that were discovered. We also provide a more detailed, actionable report to the firm’s IT department.

The main goals of pen testing include:

  • Identifying crucial system vulnerabilities
  • Uncovering vulnerabilities that may be hard to see from the surface
  • Determining the effect an attack would have on business operations
  • Testing the strength of the network’s defense mechanisms
  • Determining appropriate security measures to eliminate the uncovered vulnerabilities.
