Infrastructure Security Assessment
Intelligence Driven Cyber Security Operations
Infrastructure Security Assessment
Infrastructure plays a vital role as the backbone of an enterprise’s operations. Administrators are responsible for the maintenance and management of various components, including internal and external networks, VPN networks, VLANs, firewalls, Database Servers , Email Servers ,Wireless networks, SANs, DMZs, Switches, and Routers. While their efforts are essential, focusing solely on maintenance and management may not be sufficient to protect the organization from potential cyber-attacks.
It is crucial to thoroughly evaluate the Infrastructure security posture to identify and address potential vulnerabilities. Misconfigured services, outdated components, and lack of timely updates can create entry points for attackers. Moreover, inadequate awareness training for employees may lead to social engineering attacks or careless handling of sensitive information, compromising the Infrastructure security.
In addition to technical aspects, load balancing schemas also need careful consideration during the assessment. Poorly balanced loads may lead to service disruptions or create opportunities for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.By conducting a comprehensive infrastructure security assessment, organizations can proactively identify and address security weaknesses in their networks, reducing the risk of successful network attacks and enhancing overall cybersecurity.
Improve the Vital infrastructure security with us
Penetration testing by extension evolves as quickly as the technology it’s built on. For penetration testing services that go beyond a simple vulnerability scanner requires experts in the industry.
Certcube Labs’ approach to infrastructure security assessment goes above and beyond standard vulnerability analysis. With decades of combined security experience, our assessment team identifies, exploits, and documents even the most subtle of network vulnerabilities.
Manual vs Automated Infrastructure Security Assessment
Vulnerability Scanners Reality
The trouble with using automated scanners is best described with the words of Mark Twain: “Knowledge without experience is just information.” Very often, these scanners miss subtle security risks. It takes an experienced individual to understand the application context and how logic could be abused. Many vulnerabilities simply are not found in these automated vulnerability scanners.
What Makes Us Best
Certcube Labs’ security engineers utilize vulnerability scanners during the initial stages of an assessment as a starting point. However, our approach goes beyond this, as we believe that a deeper comprehension of the infrastructure and its context is essential to deliver assessments that are highly tailored to our clients’ specific security requirements, providing more relevant and effective results.
Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing Services
gLOBAL SECURITY ASSESSMENTS FRAMEWORKS & sTANDARDS WE FOLLOW
Global Standrd for cyber security assessments and auditing organisation from cyber attacks..
The standard defines guidelines for Planning and reconnaissance, identifying vulnerabilities, exploiting vulnerabilities and documenting findings.
The Penetration Testing Execution Standard outlines the principles for conducting a thorough cybersecurity assessment.
A complete methodology for penetration and security testing, security analysis and the measurement of operational security towards building the best possible security defenses .
The MITRE ATT&CK framework is a curated knowledge base and model for cyber adversary behavior, reflecting the various phases of an adversary's attack lifecycle and the platforms they are known to target.
Our approach to Infrastructure Security Assessment
Our team will discuss the assessment objectives, infrastructure assets, testing methodologies, and timelines to understand the complete scope.
This phase consists of gathering information associated with the target infrastructure. The process involves confirming the boundaries, objectives, and specific assets to be assessed to ensure a clear understanding of the assessment’s scope and deliverables.
Our Team identifies and ranks assets based on their criticality and potential impact on the organization’s operations and data, enabling the effective allocation of resources and attention to address the most significant security risks at the earliest.
Vulnerability assessment in infrastructure security involves systematically identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing potential weaknesses in the network, systems, and applications to proactively address security risks and enhance overall resilience against cyber threats.
The exploitation phase of infrastructure security assessment entails the actual steps of testing and exploiting the identified vulnerabilities. Throughout this phase, stakeholders actively participate in granting or denying permission for consultants to proceed with exploitation. The assessment encompasses vulnerabilities in both external network devices and hosts, ensuring comprehensive coverage to enhance the infrastructure’s overall security.
Reporting and Debrief
Reporting and debriefing are crucial components of infrastructure security assessment, where detailed findings, risk analysis, and recommended mitigation measures are communicated to the stakeholders. This process enables a clear understanding of the assessment results and facilitates informed decision-making to strengthen the organization’s security posture.
Re-Validation and Support
Our team Revalidate and assure that the identified vulnerabilities have been effectively addressed. Our robust ongoing support provides assistance and guidance to maintain a secure infrastructure and respond to emerging threats.
