Penetration Testing

Penetration testing is an assurance exercise that employs an authorized method of assessing the security of an IT infrastructure by safely attempting to exploit vulnerabilities in the infrastructure. It aims at replicating the steps an attacker would take to exploit vulnerabilities in your network, demonstrates the impact and provides a remediation strategy.

At Cyraatek we specialize in a full spectrum of penetration testing capabilities, including:

Network Penetration Testing

The aim of a network penetration test is to identify exploitable vulnerabilities in network systems, hosts, and network devices before attackers are able to discover and exploit them to gain unauthorized access to the network and its system.

Our team go beyond vulnerability scanning, evaluating the security of a system by combining both automated and manual testing methods to expose and exploit vulnerabilities. After the exercise has been completed, all weaknesses and vulnerabilities are validated and appropriate remediation methods are provided.

Web applications have become more complex and extensive so that they can accommodate modern business requirements. These complexities, in turn, have introduced vulnerabilities that can potentially be used to infiltrate a secure network perimeter. Web Application Penetration Testing (WAPT) is an assessment of a web application, carried out to identify vulnerabilities or loopholes that can potentially be exploited in an application.

Web applications with weaker security provide easy access to attackers, who are attempting to gain a foothold of an organization’s network. Attackers are not targeting you directly, rather, they are constantly scanning and probing for vulnerable applications. With your authorization, Cyraatek will attempt to gain access to your web application in order to enter the operating system. We perform each and every web application penetration test using methods detailed in the OWASP testing guide, with the aim of ensuring a comprehensive web application penetration test.

Web Application Penetration Testing

“Many attacks against web infrastructure could be prevented with regular maintenance and patching, but the numbers suggest that web owners just aren’t managing to keep up.”

Vulnerability Assessment

“We offer you and your business the opportunity to understand the exploitable vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure.”

In today’s world, businesses depend massively on information technology. It is also well known that most IT infrastructure operates with a considerable amount of vulnerabilities.

The vulnerability assessment process involves recognizing, measuring and prioritizing vulnerabilities in an IT infrastructure. Vulnerability Assessment gives clients the opportunity to uncover potential issues in their information systems, and offer recommendations to eliminate or reduce the level of risk. Vulnerability assessment is different from penetration testing, as it enables organizations to amend vulnerabilities which relates to its operations.

We can assess the security and integrity of your infrastructure to identify vulnerabilities and provide recommendations on how to improve your overall security posture.

Securing wireless networks has been a major issue for organizations, with problems from rogue access points to insufficient encryption algorithms and even devices left misconfigured. Wireless networks are vulnerable to attacks because access to them is difficult to control and compromised wireless networks can expose your internal network to external attackers. Wireless penetration test attempts to identifies weaknesses in a wireless network by using same hacking tools and programs used by attackers.

Cyraatek team addresses your security concerns, implementing methods of attacks used by adversaries, along with providing you with relevant and efficient action plan. The scale and intensity of our penetration tests are tailored to meet your business needs.

Social Engineering

“The efforts that an organization put in to securing your network are of little use if your employees fall prey to social engineering attacks.”

At Cyraatek we also provide social engineering attack simulations to give you a better understanding of the posture of the human element in your IT infrastructure.

Methods such as making phone calls to employees in the guise of an IT department or senior member of staff with the aim of enticing them into divulging information or perform tasks that would have an adverse effect on the company are used in order to to determine the level of human vulnerability in your business.
