Find Your Vulnerabilities Before Cybercriminals Do
Assuming your cybersecurity is strong enough to protect your business is a significant risk you can’t afford to take. You need to actively test your cybersecurity protection—HRCT can handle it for you.
Truly effective cybersecurity is a matter of what you know.
Do you (and your employees) know what a phishing email looks like? How long would it take for you to identify that a breach has occurred? Do you know if your IT assets are properly protected right now?
Find out how your cybersecurity holds up with penetration testing by HRCT.
What Is Penetration Testing?
A penetration test is an authorized simulated attack performed on a computer system to evaluate its security.
HRCT utilizes penetration testing to discover an organization’s level of risk in the event of a hack. Utilizing the same tools, techniques, and processes as attackers, we find and demonstrate the business impacts of weaknesses in your systems.
Our penetration testing services enhance your security posture, reduce risk, facilitate compliance and improve operational efficiency.
Our Penetration Testing Process
HRCT uses automated and comprehensive manual testing throughout the penetration testing process to identify network and business-logic-related vulnerabilities and non-compliance risks.
We present our findings to you in a series of reports that include a description of the exploit attempts and the successes or failures, documentation of testing activities, and remediation recommendations. This process ensures a clear, well-defined approach to the testing of your infrastructure, applications, and employees.
How Does Penetration Testing Work?
As a form of ethical hacking, penetration testing employs techniques similar to the ones used by criminal hackers.
Defining the scope of the project.
Gathering all the necessary information
Using all the information to assess vulnerabilities
Utilizing results from the scan to exploit the weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
Controlled attacks are meant to act on vulnerabilities.
Compilation of a detailed report detailing the vulnerabilities identified in the testing phase.
The process of eliminating vulnerabilities by applying the right solutions and processes, and training your staff members where necessary.
At a regular interval, you undergo additional penetration tests to ensure remediation initiatives were effective, and determine if other vulnerabilities have developed.
Ethical hackers or penetration testers (like those on the HRCT team) perform the test. These people can be in-house hackers or external managed service providers, and they can perform different types of tests depending on your business needs.
What Do You Get From Penetration Testing?
Penetration testing isn’t just meant to break into your systems and show you they’re not protected properly. A robust penetration testing service will note and track all potential vulnerabilities, and distill that data into a report that you can use to fix them.
Our team will identify your vulnerabilities, provide you with a detailed report of our findings, and review them with you to ensure you understand how your vulnerabilities can be addressed.
Our Penetration Testing Services
Network Penetration Test
Our team exploits and uncovers vulnerabilities on different types of networks, associated devices like routers and switches, and network hosts.
Web Application Penetration Test
Our team tests the overall security and potential risks of your web applications, including coding errors, broken authentication or authorization, and injection vulnerabilities.
Wireless Penetration Test
Our team evaluates your wireless network’s security posture in the context of generally accepted network security best practices. We take a wireless footprint of the target environments to identify and verify all the access points.
Mobile Application Testing
We carefully determine the security and functionality of your mobile applications on Android and iOS platforms. In complex cases, we can perform a source code evaluation to identify code errors and bugs in the application that could cause security or privacy issues.
Using the latest intelligence on social engineering techniques, we evaluate your employees’ cybersecurity awareness with conventional phishing and “spear-phishing” attacks that are intended to exploit trust and lack of security awareness.
