Stay Protected Against Unwanted Threats.
We have an entire suite of preventative measures, from penetration testing to
simulated cyber-attacks to identifying vulnerabilities and advising you on how to fix them
Our partners, GRSEE, are specialized cyber security experts. They run entire suite of preventative measures, from penetration testing to simulated cyber-attacks to identifying vulnerabilities and advising you on how to fix them.
In today’s day and age, with security breaches making headlines daily, information security is more essential than ever before. The need for customized and creative solutions provided in an efficient and accurate manner are highly sought after, but rarely found. GRSee continuously invests in training and hiring top talent so they can offer the best service possible.
What Is Penetration Testing?
Penetration testing (or pen testing) is a security exercise where a cyber-security expert attempts to find and exploit vulnerabilities in a computer system. The purpose of this simulated attack is to identify any weak spots in a system’s defenses which attackers could take advantage of.
This is like a bank hiring someone to dress as a burglar and try to break into their building and gain access to the vault. If the ‘burglar’ succeeds and gets into the bank or the vault, the bank will gain valuable information on how they need to tighten their security measures.
Types of Pen-Testing.
- Open-box pen test – In an open-box test, the hacker will be provided with some information ahead of time regarding the target company’s security info.
- Closed-box pen test – Also known as a ‘single-blind’ test, this is one where the hacker is given no background information besides the name of the target company.
- Covert pen test – Also known as a ‘double-blind’ pen test, this is a situation where almost no one in the company is aware that the pen test is happening, including the IT and security professionals who will be responding to the attack. For covert tests, it is especially important for the hacker to have the scope and other details of the test in writing beforehand to avoid any problems with law enforcement.
- External pen test – In an external test, the ethical hacker goes up against the company’s external-facing technology, such as their website and external network servers. In some cases, the hacker may not even be allowed to enter the company’s building. This can mean conducting the attack from a remote location or carrying out the test from a truck or van parked nearby.
- Internal pen test – In an internal test, the ethical hacker performs the test from the company’s internal network. This kind of test is useful in determining how much damage a disgruntled employee can cause from behind the company’s firewall.
How We Can Help.
Working with our partners, GRSee Consulting, we will perform an authorized, simulated attack on a computer system, application, infrastructure or solution to test the vulnerabilities of that system. This allows the organization to then take appropriate measures in order to protect their assets. We provide tailor-made recommendations, as part of a full penetration test report, to guide your organization through the remediation process. This allows us to offer application, infrastructure and mobile app penetration testing.
What Is APT Simulation?
An advanced persistent threat (APT) is a broad term used to describe an attack campaign in which an intruder, or team of intruders, establishes an illicit, long-term presence on a network in order to mine highly sensitive data.
The targets of these assaults, which are very carefully chosen and researched, typically include large enterprises or governmental networks. The consequences of such intrusions are vast, and include:
- Intellectual property theft (e.g., trade secrets or patents)
- Compromised sensitive information (e.g., employee and user private data)
- The sabotaging of critical organizational infrastructures (e.g., database deletion)
- Total site takeovers
Advanced Persistent Threat Simulation is an ongoing testing effort to assess an organization’s ability to detect, monitor and mitigate advanced threats. It allows an organization to analyze its ability to cope with external attacks.
How We Can Help.
GRSee Consulting developed a structured, sophisticated & comprehensive methodology for performing a simulation of a real cyber-attack. Following discovery and enumeration, as partners, we will then deploy a number of phishing attacks and other forms of social engineering to test the security posture of the organization.
Security Design and Review
The security of an application, network and its associated functionalities relies primarily on its architecture and design. Therefore, it is paramount that an organization performs a security design review as part of its security roadmap.
Ideally, this should be performed at the outset of the design of an application, before deployment. This will allow you to identify vulnerabilities and rectify them before they are exploited. It can be very pricey to mitigate problems and make architectural and design changes after the fact.
We work with organizations to review the current application/environment and provide a set of pragmatic instructions to ensure its security.
