02 Feb How to ensure business security from hackers using pentesting
Cybersecurity is becoming increasingly important, and every business must actively protect its infrastructure from potential cyberattacks. One of the effective security methods is penetration testing.
Basic principles of pentesting
Penetration testing is the process of systematically and controlledly breaking into a system or network to identify vulnerabilities. Penetration testing companies like CQR keep abreast of the latest hacking techniques and use them to test the security of business systems.
The stages of PTAAS are as follows:
- collection of information;
- defining testing goals;
- collecting information about the target system;
- analysis of possible vulnerabilities, etc.
Scanning the system for open ports and services is one of the company’s core services. Automated tools are used to conduct Pen test and identify vulnerabilities. Helps the company comply with legal and industry safety requirements. Penetration Testing as a Service from CQR is not just a security check, but a comprehensive approach to protecting your business from cyber threats. Take care of your cybersecurity in advance to avoid the consequences of unexpected attacks.
The threat modeling stage in penetration testing as a service is a key stage at which a strategy for detecting and analyzing potential security threats is built. At this stage, all aspects of the business infrastructure are carefully analyzed and threats are classified to effectively prevent possible attacks. At the initial stage, the main targets that may be the subject of attack are identified. This could be a web application, servers, network infrastructure and other system components. Potential attack vectors that attackers can use to penetrate are identified. A detailed analysis of data obtained as a result of OSINT reconnaissance is also carried out. This involves obtaining information about the company’s assets, its employees, and other open data sources.
Based on the analysis, a structured list of potential threats is formed, their likelihood and possible consequences for business processes are assessed. Particular attention is paid to the use of the innovative Cryeye platform, which provides results processing and analysis, as well as planning and modeling of actions. Threat modeling in penetration testing allows you to not only identify potential risks, but also develop strategies and tactics to prevent them.
