Malicious actors are gaining unauthorized access to environments around the globe by finding flaws in fundamental systems that run corporate environments. These actors are using dynamic techniques, created through critical thinking, to exploit vulnerabilities that circumvent or defeat security measures put into place to protect these fundamental systems. Penetration Testing, performed by experts in the security industry, will mimic the actions of our advanced adversaries to validate that the critical controls put into place are effective and that security policies are adhered to.
By engaging in Penetration Testing Services, you will be taking a giant leap towards achieving stronger security controls. Both automated and manual testing technologies are utilized to identify vulnerabilities. These technologies are capable of identifying vulnerabilities in many different types of systems, including but not limited to, servers, workstations, web applications, Internet of Things (IoT), Industrial Control Systems (ICS), firewalls, switches, point of sale system (POS), and many more endpoints. Throughout the comprehensive security assessment each successfully exploited vulnerability is detailed within a comprehensive report. Additionally, the comprehensive report will contain any relevant information to assist in remediation, an estimated associated risk to the business, and, most importantly, the information needed to secure your environment.
At Elevate we are committed in excellence by providing our customers the requirements needed for meeting the needs of many compliance standards, such as Payment Card Industry Security Standard (PCI DSS), Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX), and others.
An external penetration test includes testing of systems connected or accessible to public network infrastructure. Internal penetration testing involves the testing of systems connected or accessible to internal network infrastructure. A web application penetration test can uncover vulnerabilities in the web application itself, which may lead to possible compromise of other related shared infrastructure. The methodologies used and the approach to each type of penetration test is dynamic and up to the tester to choose the most appropriate set of tools necessary to perform a penetration test. Therefore, although most of the penetration testing process is manual, Elevate provides its testers with the necessary resources, including industry proven commercial testing solutions. In addition, testers must use their discretion when deciding to use many of the open-source tools that adversaries have available as well. The penetration testing process can be broken up into several distinct phases. These phases include reconnaissance, scanning, exploitation, and reporting.
