Penetration Testing Approach
When you incorporate security features it helps to have a good understanding of how attackers think. By thinking like attackers and being aware of their likely tactics, you can be more effective when applying countermeasures. We understand attacker methodology and the anatomy of common attacks.
We analyze security from the perspective of threats, countermeasures, vulnerabilities, and attacks. The following is set of core terms and defined to avoid confusion and to ensure they are used in the correct context.
> Asset. A resource of value such as the data in a database or on the file system, or a system resource
> Threat. A potential occurrence malicious or otherwise that may harm an asset
> Vulnerability. A weakness that makes a threat possible
> Attack (or exploit). An action taken to harm an asset
> Countermeasure. A safeguard that addresses a threat and mitigates risk
> Reports. We provide extensive reports and include fixes to our findings. Also known as countermeasures
You need to know the threats that are most likely to impact your system to be able to build preventative threat models.
Risk management is the key to a successful security strategy. We help organizations identify risk related to their information security
We Identify security weaknesses by analyzing your external and internal security controls in place. This enables organizations to understand and minimize risk.
