Ensuring that you security is up to the mark is essential to provide peace of mind with your valuable data and systems. When GDPR stakes are high, our security experts have the experience to mimic the techniques of hackers without causing damage to your systems and provide you with the assurance you and your customers need.
Access to the internet exposes applications, websites and web-applications to the attentions of cyber criminals for extortion, denial-of-service and other criminal activities. Penetration testing using Node4’s CREST certified security experts offers comprehensive analysis of internet facing applications where bespoke coding and configuration needs expert testing against hacking methodologies.
It is important that any internet facing services be assessed for security flaws and loopholes prior to going live or as part of a rigorous check to ascertain that vulnerabilities have been eliminated. Penetration testing is an integral part of the application testing process. With a strong understanding of the latest cybersecurity vulnerabilities and threats, our pentesters will identify weaknesses, misconfigurations and outdated code and components.
Plus, we can also conduct tests outside of normal business hours and use social engineering techniques to gauge employee security robustness, as well as utilise open source techniques to probe for vulnerabilities.
Our security experts won’t be picking holes for the sake of it. We will attempt to evaluate the security of your IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities, and then we can address them. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and application flaws, improper configurations or risky end-user behaviour.
We understand the methods criminals use to breach security. Cyber hackers use seven stages to investigate, launch, control and steal data from your network – this is known as the “cyber-attack killchain”. We can identify and prevent the attack, therefore breaking the chain and ensuring your data is safe.
In some respects, vulnerability and penetration testing are similar types of services. Node4’s definition of the differences are as follows;
Vulnerability testing focusses on providing security details on active network services and the risks and vulnerabilities of those services.
Penetration testing inspects your internet facing applications or websites for security flaws and loop holes which could be exploited by attackers.
The key benefits of Node4’s application and webserver testing are as follows;
Providing detailed information and risk analysis about threats and vulnerabilities from inside and outside of your infrastructure, allows businesses to evaluate the risks and implement prevention before risks become security incidents.
