Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing​

Uncover weaknesses in your IT infrastructure and learn how to protect your valuable data more effectively.

Penetration Testing

Are you wondering how well your security controls are working or how exposed you are to external threats?

A penetration test helps improve your organization’s cybersecurity posture by performing real attacks to simulate what an attacker could do. These attacks will assess the risk of a potential security breach and see how far an attacker could go within your environment.

Vulnerability Assessments

Are you running any outdated software? Have all updates and patches been applied? Are your services correctly configured?

We’ll perform a comprehensive assessment to help you identify your IT infrastructure’s weakest points, deliver a detailed report, and work with you to create a remediation plan.

Cybersecurity Risk Assessment

We’ll thoroughly review your entire infrastructure to ensure it adheres to the NIST Security Framework – the IT security best-practice standards developed by the U.S. government to reduce risks.

Once it’s finished, we’ll present findings and a robust plan to ensure that your business can prevent, detect, and respond to attacks successfully.

A vulnerability assessment systematically identifies and evaluates vulnerabilities in an organization’s information systems, networks, and applications. It involves scanning and analyzing systems for known security weaknesses and misconfigurations to determine potential entry points for cyber attacks.

Penetration testing, aka ethical hacking, is a controlled and simulated cyber attack on an organization’s systems, networks, or applications. It involves attempting to exploit vulnerabilities and gain unauthorized access to assess security controls’ effectiveness and identify improvement areas.

Vulnerability assessments and penetration testing are essential because they help organizations proactively identify and address security weaknesses before malicious actors can exploit them. They provide valuable insights into potential vulnerabilities, allowing organizations to strengthen their security defenses and mitigate risks.
