Penetration Testing Services

Penetration Testing Services - ScienceSoft

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. Seemingly minor vulnerabilities may end up in 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 network infrastructure and applications.

Do You Need to Verify and Attest Your IT Landscape or an App Is Intrusion-Proof?
ScienceSoft’s Certified Ethical Hackers will be pleased to verify the level of your cyber-protection and help you make it bulletproof.
When You Need Penetration Testing

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 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.

Types of a penetration test we provide:

ScienceSoft's team provided the full package of penetration testing services for our web application. Thanks to ScienceSoft's high-quality services, we were able to locate and neutralize vulnerabilities and ensure the security of our customers' personal data, as well as protect our services from potential attacks.

Penetration testing methods we apply:

Black Box testing

We work in life-like conditions having strictly limited knowledge of your network and no information on the security policies, network structure, software and network protection used

Gray Box testing

We examine your system having some information on your network, such as user login details, architecture diagrams or the network’s overview

White Box testing

We identify potential points of weakness by using admin rights and access to server configuration files, database encryption principles, source code or architecture documentation

3 Steps of a Penetration Test

1

Pre-attack phase / Planning

2

Attack phase / Testing

3

Post-attack phase / Reporting

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.

deliverables

Upon the completion of security tests, we got comprehensive reports with the detailed information on the detected critical and non-critical security weaknesses and recommended measures to mitigate them. After we carried out the remediation of critical vulnerabilities, ScienceSoft’s security engineers retested the protection of our web application again to confirm its high security level and delivered an updated final report to us.

Security Testing 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 that 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.
