Decoding CISA Known Exploited Vulnerabilities

Penetration Testing as a Service

Identifying vulnerabilities to reduce risk and exposure

Our expert penetration testers conduct a real-world attack to breach your network. We use tactics, techniques, and tools used by hackers to compromise your systems, providing proof of concept and guided remediation to close all gaps.

Overview

Our penetration testing simulates a real-world attack on digital assets. We adopt a hacker’s perspective to detect and exploit vulnerabilities in an organization’s environment with the aim to move laterally and compromise the entire IT infrastructure.

Methodology

Our methodology follows the MITRE ATT&CK framework and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication (NIST-SP​-800-115), along with the latest Techniques, Tactics, and Procedures (TTPs) used by attackers.

Reconnaissance

  • We gather information about ports, protocols, and services by scanning assets and discovering your attack surface.

Validate Vulnerabilities and Exposure Analysis

  • We identify vulnerabilities, flag false positives, and analyze all vulnerabilities based on their potential to be exploited and used maliciously against the organization.

Penetration Testing

  • We perform automated and manual penetration tests to exploit vulnerabilities by attempting to bypass existing security controls. We mimic a hacker’s stealth attack methods to gain an initial foothold, escalate privileges, and perform lateral movements without being detected.

Prioritize Vulnerabilities

  • We prioritize vulnerabilities based on weaponization and exploitability and tell you what to fix first.

Report and Synchronized Delivery

  • Our results are delivered through a Risk-based Vulnerability Management (RBVM) platform that can be easily integrated with your existing security tools and ticketing systems.
