There are flaws in any security deployment. What matters is how critical the failings may be, and, if they are dangerous, where they can be found.
Always, the stakes are high. At best, you may suffer a few hours downtime and some repair and recovery costs if you are hit by one of the countless viruses or worms circulating randomly round the Internet. At worst, you may lose millions of pounds worth of data and your regulatory compliance could be seriously compromised – not to mention your brand reputation – by hackers looking for valuable financial data and intellectual property assets.
LAN2LAN's Penetration Testing service is designed to identify where your vulnerabilities may be and show how you can close potential gaps in your defences. Our ethical penetration testing hackers conduct a rigorous process of managed attacks on your network and provide clear and relevant reports setting out the results.
At the conclusion of the process, you have a set of recommendations that enable prompt action to remedy any failings identified by the audit. The actions are prioritised, allowing you to manage the process of repair and improvement efficiently and economically, beginning with the most important areas of concern.
As part of a comprehensive Network Security Audit, LAN2LAN penetration testing protects much more than your network and data assets. There can be significant business and operational consequences for organisations of any size:
One of the most damaging consequences of any attack is the loss of customer confidence that can follow. Relationships that have taken years of care and investment to establish can be compromised overnight. Regular testing can minimise the risk by finding any vulnerabilities before malicious hackers can exploit them.
No in-house audit or test of your network can ever be as truly objective and impartial as a programme of tests conducted by a certified independent organisation. Working as a matter of policy with less knowledge of your infrastructure and corporate culture, LAN2LAN’s testers can conceive patterns of attack that an in-house team or a standard tool simply would not take into account.
An internal test of your network
The external test programme includes:
LAN2LAN has a long and proven track record in the design, installation and support of networks. As well as finding the real problems within your infrastructure, we’ll provide the right solutions and put processes in place to minimise the risk of the problems occurring again. Our carefully tailored approach to testing is your assurance that your investment in security improvements is properly aligned with your most urgent needs.
Your report will also include recommendations for long-term prevention and testing, helping to substantially reduce the risk to your hardware, data assets and day-to-day operations.
Ultimately, LAN2LAN's penetration testing programmes can reduce downtime, optimise network performance and eliminate sleepless nights – at least, those caused by network security problems.
