Penetrating Testing..

A penetration test is a simulation of a hacker attack on a network, system, application or website used to discover existing weaknesses before hackers find and exploit them. We determine feasibility of an attack and the amount of business impact of a successful network compromise.

We test and report all potential vulnerabilities both externally and internally that result from improper system configuration, hardware or software flaws and missing patches.
Any security issues that are found will be presented to the system owner together with an assessment of their impact and often with a proposal for mitigation or a technical solution.

Our network security assessment team’s approach addresses wide-ranging needs for our clients and we offer an in-depth and comprehensive penetration testing service that audit systems from an external or internal perspective.
External penetration testing - usually takes place across the Internet to simulate the view of your systems through the eyes of a potential attacker.

Internal penetration testing - enables a business to comprehensively evaluate how easily internal employees are able to access sensitive information.

Why Network Security Assessment / Penetration test?

IT GOVERNANCE

IT governance is a critical component of corporate governance; it provides a useful tool for benchmarking the balance and effectiveness of IT governance practices within an organization. It also provides structured guidance on how to approach practical assistance and guidance for practitioners in an Organization.
It ensure that the organization’s IT is aligned with, and supports, the business objectives; delivers value; manages risk associated with IT; manages its IT resources effectively and efficiently; and measures its own performance.

There are a number of reasons why IT Governance has become a significant issue within business organizations.

 
Some of the reasons are:

             The Board and Senior Management demand a better ROII (no that’s not a typo — it’s Return on Investment in IT)

             IT has an upward spiral when it comes to costs and expenditures

             Regulatory requirements are increasing daily

             Outsourcing is becoming as common a solution as in-housing

             Risks are becoming increasing more complex

             Businesses need to know how they’re doing compared to other like businesses
