Penetration testing services to close security loopholes

Identifying vulnerabilities before they become harmful breaches

White hat hacking to test your ability to withstand a real-time exploit

Threats tend to occur where security officers expect them the least. Naturally, an intruder won’t spend months trying to force a well-locked door, but will look for weak points and vulnerabilities in those information systems where security isn’t a priority. The combination of negligence and seemingly minor vulnerabilities may end up with serious consequences and lead to the system being compromised. The acknowledged way to reduce such risks is to employ penetration testing.

To prevent your organization from possible breaches and reinforce existing security controls against a skilled attacker, ScienceSoft’s team offers penetration testing services based on a custom plan of a multistep attack that targets custom infrastructure and applications. We recommend to fulfill a pentest in case if:

  • Regularly scheduled analysis and assessments are required by regulatory mandates
  • New network infrastructure or applications were added
  • Significant upgrades or modifications to infrastructure or applications were made
  • New office locations were established
  • End-user policies were modified
  • Corporate IT was significantly changed

Ethical hacking to prevent a potential intrusion

ScienceSoft offers complete penetration testing services designed to identify system vulnerabilities, validate existing security measures and provide a detailed remediation roadmap.

Our team, equipped with the latest tools and industry-specific test scenarios, is ready to deliver a thorough checkup to pinpoint system vulnerabilities, as well as flaws in application, service and OS, loopholes in configurations, and potentially dangerous non-compliance with security policies.

ScienceSoft performs the following types of a penetration test:

  • Network services test
  • Web application security test
  • Client-side security test
  • Remote access security test
  • Social engineering test
  • Physical security test

We apply 3 recognized penetration testing methods:

  • Black Box testing (external testing)
  • White Box testing (internal testing)
  • Grey Box testing (combination of both above-mentioned types)

3 steps of a penetration test

Planning

Pre-attack phase / Planning

  • Defining the intruder model (internal or external, enabled rights and privileges)
  • Defining goals, source data, scope of work and testing targets
  • Determining the scope of a target environment
  • Developing the testing methodology
  • Defining interaction and communication procedures

Penetration testing

Attack phase / Testing

  • Fieldwork, service identification
  • Custom scanning or intrusion tools are developed if needed
  • Vulnerabilities detection and scanning, elimination of false positives
  • Vulnerabilities exploit and gaining an unauthorized access
  • Utilization of compromised systems as a springboard for further intrusion

Reporting

Post-attack phase / Reporting

  • Result analysis and reporting with recommendations for reducing risks
  • Visual demonstration of the damage that can be inflicted to the system by an intruder

Additionally, we can also eliminate the detected vulnerabilities.

DELIVERABLES

At the end of the penetration testing procedure, we provide our customers with an extensive set of reports and recommendations to effectively eliminate the detected breaches:

  • Brief description based on the achieved results and findings
  • List of detected system vulnerabilities and their classification according to how easy they are to exploit and how harmful for the system and business they may be
  • List of changes in the system that were implemented during testing
  • Test protocol (including instruments and tools used, parts that were checked and issues found)
  • Actionable recommendations to eliminate the revealed security issues
     

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Complete view of vulnerabilities

Complete view of vulnerabilities

We provide detailed information on real security threats, help to identify the most critical and less significant vulnerabilities along with false positives, so then the Customer can prioritize remediation, apply needed security patches and allocate security resources.

Regulatory compliance

Regulatory compliance (GLBA, HIPAA, PCI DSS, FISMA/NIST)

The detailed reports generated after penetration testing help to avoid fines for non-compliance and allow to illustrate due diligence to auditors by maintaining required security controls.

Costs

Avoiding the cost of system/network downtime

ScienceSoft’s team provides specific guidance and recommendations to avoid financial pitfalls by identifying and addressing risks before attacks or security breaches occur.
