The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) analyzes tens of thousands of new vulnerabilities each year.
This analysis yields a consistent observation: the number of vulnerabilities increase year by year. One of the best methods to validate the security posture of your organization is comprehensive security testing practices like penetration testing.
Penetration testing allows enumeration of vulnerabilities and risks, ensuring your team is prepared with mitigation and remediation techniques before threat actors exploit your organization’s risks. An effective pen-test emulates current, real world threats to uncover the weaknesses in your network. Our pen-test will invalidate or validate your current security implementation, allowing you to identify vulnerabilities and strengths.
Alȳn’s pen-testing team is made up of analysts with a wide range of expertise in cyber security operations. Our analysts have supported threat hunting, forensics and cyber intel operations for large commercial and federal clients. Consequently, our analysts understand the tactics, techniques and procedures of threat actors.
As part of a pen-test, Alȳn can:
- Validate compliance: PCI-DSS, FISMA, HIPAA, etc.
- Provide 3rd party verification: validate your internal team’s efficiency at mitigating risks and responding to attacks
- Test new technology deployments: provide assurance your application is ready to go live
- Provide training: ensure the secure software development lifecycle is being utilized and security if part of the culture of your organization
