Why it matters
Better information security begins with a designed and tested solution.
To help mitigate the risk of a breach to your business, you first need to establish how effective your existing security is. Our team will run a full assessment of your business applications and infrastructure to help identify any potential security risks and vulnerabilities before they become an issue. Red Team testing checks multiple controls, be it technology, process or people, to provide a realistic insight into how attackers might compromise your organisation. For example, this might include social engineering by showing you how easy it is to get employees to hand over a password or install malicious applications.
Penetration Testing involves simulating an attack to uncover weaknesses in your processes, systems and technologies before they can be abused or exploited. Aura’s testing team are specialists and are certified across a range of disciplines with in-depth knowledge of the latest trends, technologies, and attack vectors.
Going hand-in-hand with Code Review is Host Review. The focus here is on the infrastructure layer, so we’re making sure servers are patched, ports are closed off and it’s all properly hardened to industry standards, ensuring greater security and peace of mind that your systems are protected on all fronts.
A Code Review to inspect source code can pin-point defects that could be used by hackers to gain access to your systems and data. Our Code Review consultants all have strong software development backgrounds, expert knowledge across languages, platforms and technologies, and work with you to prioritise areas of risk.
Prevention is better than a cure. For this assessment, we simulate a malicious attack with a range of IP addresses where penetration testing would normally be cost-prohibitive. By scanning widely across your infrastructure, we can pinpoint areas of risk where further analysis should be conducted.
