With the increase in malicious attacks, organizations must have an actionable security testing strategy through risk analysis, integrity checks, and business logic testing to pinpoint vulnerabilities and determine real-world security challenges.
Penetration testing (or pen testing) is a proven discipline to identify, test, and fix high-risk security gaps and flaws. The penetration testing process consists of manual and automated processes to reduce risks in applications and networks.
A CREST approved penetration testing service can ensure the end-to-end pen test process is managed and driven by following the best legal, ethical, and technological standards. The services get executed by highly competent CREST certified pen test engineers. They go through rigorous tests to prove their competence by adhering to data security practices & meet compliance standards such as GDPR, HIPAA, PCI, DSS, NIST, and PCI DSS.
CREST certification standard is regularly updated based on the changing threat landscape. It ensures the pen tester is always updated on the latest process and technology developments to mitigate these threats.
Aujas is a CREST approved vendor and is the cornerstone of penetration testing.
Our CREST certified pen test team can simulate real-world attacks to determine security preparedness and assess the magnitude of a
breach due to a sophisticated attack. The strategy and tactics are devised based on the security report designed by the pen test team after conducting a full round-up study of your organizational security setup. We also evaluate the effectiveness of your security framework by using similar tools and techniques used by hackers to conduct a breach.
CREST approved penetration testing services we offer:
Be it the protection of customer data or organizational data stolen through business spying, the significance of safeguarding information assets and reducing the risk of data theft is more than ever before.
At Aujas, we objectively assess and measure the level of threats, vulnerabilities, and risks associated with your infrastructure, both from internal and external threats. Our penetration testing processes begins with categorization & profiling of the target under test, while thoroughly understanding your security complexities and business risks.
This is the requirements engineering phase where information and intelligence related to applications, data, and systems infrastructure are gathered. We also use Open Source Intelligence methods to gather unclassified intelligence (like an attacker) from public resources such as social media communities, and web. Business logic weakness is identified in cross-scripting, SQL injection faults, and authentication vulnerabilities to create an actionable threat profile.
Web applications are assessed using automated tool-based assessments and manual reviews to unveil flaws and loopholes in your critical business assets. Our pen test experts use Black Box and Gray Box testing methods to verify your application security strength in different scenarios. Black Box testers leverage automated tools and manual penetration techniques to determine vulnerabilities from outside an organization’s IT network. A Grey Box tester has extensive knowledge of internal working environments and has system privileges to assess network risks and can simulate attacks like hackers having long term access.
The security observations and vulnerabilities identified in the previous testing phases help to establish an external connection to the organization’s network. We undertake confidence-building measures and initiate contractual agreements with stakeholders before initiating such a move. Our pen test experts drive planned attacks and specific intrusions through sophisticated methods to strengthen hold and test your organization’s ability to mitigate real-time threats and protect sensitive information.
The reporting phase of the external and internal penetration testing assessments consists of aggregating the discovered and exploited vulnerabilities in a technical report. The report thoroughly describes risk, root cause, vulnerability descriptions, remediation steps, and links to vendor information on each vulnerability. The vulnerabilities that are assigned respective root cause categories get mapped against CVSS (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) risk rankings. We also provide security recommendations and remediation plans to fix network and application flaws, which can improve your security stance against any form of attack.
