Real World Penetration Testing
Compared to cybersecurity personnel, threat actors have it easy. While those tasked with protecting data have to plug a million holes, a threat actor only needs to find one.
A penetration test (pen test) conducted by Cyber Audit Team serves to expose the weaknesses a real-world threat actor may find by attempting to breach your organisation’s security using the same exploits, techniques and strategies an external threat actor would use to gain unauthorised access to your sensitive data.
Evaluate Your Protection Capability
Our pen testing services safely evaluate your company’s ability to protect its networks, applications, endpoints and users from external or internal attempts to circumvent its security controls to gain unauthorised or privileged access to protected assets. Our pen tests provide detailed information on actual, exploitable security threats. Our pen testing services will proactively identify which vulnerabilities are more critical, which are less significant and which are false positives.
CAT’s point of difference in regard to our pen test services is that we do not use traditional automated ‘Point and Shoot’ software tools, widely used in the industry to identify your company’s vulnerabilities. This method is not as comprehensive, may leave your company exposed and often doesn’t actually provide specific instructions with source code for remedial action.
CAT employs “human led” pen testing as it has been proven to be vastly more successful, productive and cost effective for companies when compared to traditional software solutions. This approach will enable your company to prioritise remediation more intelligently, apply necessary security patches and allocate security resources more effectively to ensure that they are available when and where they are needed most.
Agile Penetration Testing
With threats constantly evolving, many companies are still only commissioning annual pen tests. The major issue with this approach if that if you’re only testing your environment annually and your company makes any changes to its environment after the pen test, your company may be dangerously exposed until the next pen test. Companies are rapidly realising that in today’s dynamic business environment, annual pen testing is no longer sufficient.
CAT has developed a cost effective and affordable service to meet our client’s specific requirements and refer to it as “Agile Penetration Testing”. This service is tailored specifically towards business that:
- Utilise or develop software, custom or mobile applications
- Make changes to clients’ online environments
- Have an evolving online digital presence
- Make frequent changes to company infrastructure
- Launch new products and services
- Prepare for compliance with data security standards
- Undergo business mergers or acquisitions
Agile pen testing delivers an unparalleled level of security and peace of mind to you, your company and your stakeholders. Our team of highly qualified pen testers will continually seek to expose any weaknesses a real-world threat actor may find by attempting to exploit vulnerabilities in your digital environment, using the same exploits, techniques and strategies an external threat actor would use to gain unauthorised access to your digital assets. When vulnerabilities are discovered, detailed reports, together with remediation recommendations will then be generated so the vulnerabilities can be swiftly corrected. Our team will also continually assess your environment for any changes in functionality and will conduct appropriate testing without needing to be asked.
