Businesses utilize many internet-facing components as part of their day-to-day operations, including websites, email servers, and various applications. This increases their exposure to attackers, and subsequently, cyber threats.
It is common knowledge that defenses must be put in place to help offset this risk, such as firewalls, antivirus software, device configurations, and more. But is this enough?
During an external penetration test, our team of security experts will leverage a combination of automated software and manual TTPs to assess the effectiveness of your current controls, including how well they are implemented, configuration settings, and detecting weaknesses in a system or network that could lead to a potential exploit.
An attacker does not need much to gain access to your network, and once inside, the network can be further exploited to rapidly escalate an attack. This can cause long-term financial and reputational damage that your business may not be able to recover from.
At the most basic level, penetration tests will help businesses identify existing vulnerabilities and where they are most likely to face an attack. Taking this proactive approach provides an opportunity to remediate issues before exploitation by attackers.
Additionally, organizations that handle large volumes of transactional and sensitive data are required to conduct regular penetration tests to comply with regulations set by leading security standards, including PCI, HIPAA, and ISO 27001 to name a few. Not doing so could lead to hefty fines.
Our security experts have studied real-world attackers’ tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) in order to understand the way they target businesses and their critical assets.
Armed with this information, our team simulates these attack behaviors within your environment to identify vulnerabilities and reveal weaknesses in your cybersecurity controls.
