When was your last Pen Test?

The number of cyber threats has exploded in today’s digital reality, and so it is imperative for businesses to proactively identify and address vulnerabilities in their networks.

Volta’s Penetration Testing

In a Penetration Testing engagement with Volta, Volta’s ethical hackers simulate a cyber-attack on your organization’s IT infrastructure, to identify and report on any real-risk vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malicious actors. This service provides your organization with an in-depth assessment of your security posture and helps you to understand where there are needs to improve your defenses.

Why is Penetration Testing important?
  • Identify real-risk vulnerabilities: While a basic vulnerability scan will help illuminate vulnerabilities on your network, that information carries less value when compared to real-risk indicators. Penetration testing provides a comprehensive assessment of an organization’s security posture, identifying the real, exploitable vulnerabilities that may not be apparent through traditional security measures.
  • Enhance security posture: By identifying and addressing real-risk vulnerabilities, (pen testing) helps organizations see where they can improve their overall security posture, reducing the risk of successful cyber-attacks.
  • Compliance: Many industries are required to comply with strict security regulations, such as PCI DSS and HIPAA. Penetration testing can help organizations meet these requirements by demonstrating that their IT infrastructure is being continually evaluated and hardened.
  • Stay ahead of attackers: By proactively identifying vulnerabilities, organizations can stay one step ahead of potential threat actors, reducing the risk of successful cyber-attacks.
  • Peace of mind: Penetration testing lessens some of the ever-present stress factors that come with IT security, since IT departments know they’re doing everything possible to protect their sensitive data.

What layers and endpoints get tested?

  • External: Testing that simulates an attack from outside an organization’s network to identify vulnerabilities in the perimeter defenses such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and routers.
  • Internal: Testing that simulates an attack from within an organization’s network, to identify vulnerabilities in systems and applications that are not accessible from the internet. An excellent approach to beginning or advancing your insider threat program.
  • Web Application: Testing that aims to identify vulnerabilities in web applications, such as cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and cross-site request forgery (CSRF).
  • Wireless: Testing that centers on identifying vulnerabilities in wireless networks, such as weak encryption, poor network design, and unauthorized access.
  • Social Engineering: Testing that focuses on identifying vulnerabilities in an organization’s human defenses, by simulating real-world attacks such as phishing emails, vishing (voice phishing), and baiting.
  • Cloud: Testing utilized to identify vulnerabilities in cloud computing environments, such as misconfigured cloud services and insufficient access controls.
  • IoT: Testing utilized to on identify vulnerabilities in Internet of Things (IoT) devices, such as insecure communications protocols, weak passwords, and unpatched software vulnerabilities.

Penetration testing provides the comprehensive assessment an organization needs to ensure its security posture is strong. By identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, organizations can improve their overall program, reduce the risk of successful cyber-attacks, and gain peace of mind knowing that their sensitive data is protected.
