Web and Network Security Audit
Penetration testing is the most effective strategy for evaluating the security capabilities and needs of a computer network or web application. A penetration test simulates a real attack and provides a rigorous examination of potential and actual vulnerabilities, including software flaws, faulty system configurations, insufficiently robust countermeasures, and more.
Websec conducts all of its penetration tests manually – our security experts are on hand to ensure that the tests are accomplished safely and effectively. At Websec, we utilize black box, white box, & grey box techniques, to ensure accurate results. The 'attack' is conducted with the utmost care, and we deploy numerous safeguards to ensure that no damage to the network or application can occur during the testing.
Black box testing assumes no prior knowledge of the platform to be tested, and the 'attack' is preceded by an analysis of the extent and layout of the platform – this provides an accurate simulation of the most common type of attack. White box testing occurs with full knowledge of the platform in question, and provides the most systematic examination of the existing security architecture. Grey box testing is any one of several intermediate variations between the prior two.
Penetration testing is a service that Websec recommends for all of its clients. The effectiveness of your network or application's security architecture can never be truly known unless it is subjected to a simulated attack. Penetration testing provides the only venue to safely reveal vulnerabilities and weaknesses. Don't wait until it's too late – if an actual attack is your first penetration test, the losses you sustain will be all too real!
