Put Up Your Dukes Before the Next Cyberattack

Cybercrime is one of the greatest threats to organizations. According to CSO, global ransomware damages costs are predicted to exceed $5 billion in 2017, and the human attack surface will reach four billion people by 2020. However, insider breaches can also wreak havoc on organizations.

So, what can you do to protect your enterprise from cybercriminals? Many organizations choose to conduct penetration testing (pen tests) to help assess their exposure. Pen testing is an attack simulation to help uncover potentially devastating gaps in your security landscape, and to determine whether your defenses are sufficient to withstand attack.

In addition, pen tests are an important component of a full security audit? For example, if your organization stores, processes, or transmits cardholder data, you are required to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Within the guidelines, it is required that organizations perform internal and external penetration testing annually, as well as after any significant infrastructure or application upgrade or modification.

Sirius’ certified security experts offer pen testing solutions. After the test, we will even show you how to mitigate risks to avoid compromises.

Our pen tests can cover:

  • Custom developed applications to ensure that business-critical applications are resistant to attack whether they are on-prem, hosted in the cloud, or hybrid
  • Network to ensure that your computer systems are resistant to attempts to destroy, expose, alter, disable, steal, or gain unauthorized access to them
  • Mobile to determine the potential for vulnerability exploitation of mobile devices and mobile applications
  • IoT to determine any vulnerabilities within the device, including embedded software, data, mobile applications and the cloud
  • Software to identify gaps presented by vended software that may lead to security breaches; including client-side testing, which is critical when considering the exposure presented by malware
