Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing
Determine your IT risk exposure and the effectiveness of your security controls.
Ntrust provide businesses with reassurance and can facilitate regulatory compliance by delivering a comprehensive range of vulnerability assessment and penetration testing services.
Regular assessment of your system’s vulnerabilities and testing of security controls will reveal how vulnerable your infrastructure is from an attacker’s perspective.
Depending on your organisation’s requirements, these services can be customised for specific scenarios, such as API and web applications, hosted infrastructure, internal LANs, and any other specific environment in which uptime is critical or where a compromise could place sensitive data at risk.
Assessment and Testing Objectives
Knowing your objectives for conducting a vulnerability assessment or penetration test will enable Ntrust to design an assessment or test that will best deliver on your requirements.
CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING POSSIBLE OBJECTIVES:
- Is the assessment purely to meet regulatory or auditing requirements?
- Has there been an attack on your systems and do you now require assurance that security gaps have been closed?
- Has your organisation reached the next security maturity level, which necessitates more in-depth assessments and testing being done?
- Do you have a new system that requires a level of security vetting before being implemented into production?
Who do you want to defend against?
Threats vary in sophistication, intensity and stealth – ranging from concerted efforts by governments to “script kiddies” experimenting with hacks.
Our vulnerability assessment and penetration testing will highlight at what risk your infrastructure is, and to what level your existing defences will protect you. For instance, will a “script kiddie” be capable of compromising your environment, or will compromise require the extensive resources and expertise of organised crime?
