Cybercriminals are plotting attacks on any front they can reach. That’s why our IT Security Assessment intentionally goes well beyond just a technical focus or regulatory focus to provide you a comprehensive picture of your security status, along with custom recommendations to quickly reduce risk.
THE SERIOUS LIMITATIONS OF MOST VULNERABILITY TESTING
(and how we overcome them)
The most common method of vulnerability testing involves an anonymous (i.e., unauthenticated) remote network scan against the underlying operating system (OS) and accessible services/applications.
While this approach has been and continues to be the de-facto standard in the security assessment industry, it does limit the detection of vulnerabilities to only those that can be discovered without any authenticated access to the OS.
The risk for your organization with this is that many current-day threats (e.g., spyware/malware, viruses, website redirection, malicious code, etc.) are initiated during a logged-in user session on a workstation or server. Thus, the most detailed and accurate vulnerability tests can only be conducted against the OS and applications during an active logged-on user session.
How we get you FAR more accurate results…
To provide the most comprehensive testing possible, BAI Security employs a cutting-edge form of testing not routinely practiced by other IT security firms. Our advanced testing methodology utilizes an active, logged-on session to the OS, which allows the vulnerability testing process to identify the risks within the OS and installed applications more comprehensively.
A multitude of applications that would have never responded to the traditional network scanning process can now be thoroughly tested for vulnerabilities by scanning the file system, registry, and application configuration files within the system.
The results of this methodology represents a major step forward in testing technology; therefore, our more comprehensive findings illuminate an increase in detected vulnerabilities when compared to prior audits by other firms – as much as 85% of the time with our new clients.
So let’s find out your TRUE security posture, and get you our prioritized recommendations for fast remediation.
IT SECURITY ASSESSMENTS
BAI Security can work with your organization and determine vulnerabilities and threats to your systems. IT Security Assessments can provide your organization with a rating of your security and suggest how to improve IT security.
- They can reduce long-term costs – Obviously, identifying potential threats and working to mitigate them has the potential to prevent security incidents, which saves your organization money in the long run.
- Information security best practices provide a template for future assessments – IT Security Risk Assessments aren’t a one-off; you need to continuously update them. By doing a good job on the first one, you create a repeatable process that can be picked up by someone else in the event of staff turnover.
- An Information Technology Assessment can provide your organization with greater self awareness – Knowing where your organization’s weaknesses lie helps give you a better idea of what areas your organization needs to grow and invest in.
- It helps you avoid breaches and other security incidents – This goes back to our first point. A well-done IT Security Risk Assessment can improve your network security implementations and mitigate attacks and personal data breaches.
- It can improve communication – Typically an IT Security Risk Assessment requires input from a number of different departments and stakeholders. This can help increase organizational visibility and enhance communication.
Conducting social engineering exercises will test your staff against manipulation techniques used by cybercriminals to gather sensitive information or access your network.
To make sure this won’t happen, BAI Security offers a multitude of non-threatening phone, in-person, and email phishing scenarios to fully evaluate this area of risk. We also offer enhanced tactics to take your security posture to the next level. These include endpoint compromise, USB drops, black box placements and more.
We’ll share how we were able to breach your network using these tactics so you can put roadblocks in place to prevent these intrusions in the future.
The professional experience and technical expertise made the choice an easy one… exceptional results. We are completely satisfied.
There are a lot of service providers out there, but your staff were personable, friendly, knowledgeable and made it very clear they were there to help us get better, not to find as many exceptions as possible.
They go out of their way to be helpful, offering guidance (not a cookie-cutter approach). We chose BAI because of their reputation. We went back because of their people and professionalism, the depth of their technical knowledge, and friendliness.
Far more extensive test than any we have had in the past… The reps are 100% on your project and always available to give you feedback.
Outstanding platform for vulnerability remediation. Everyone I talked to from sales folks to technical experts were all great to work with and very knowledgeable.
The experience was great, and I felt that BAI had my back. The techs were great to work with and helped me resolve security issues. They were working with me to correct issues rather than just pointing out what was wrong.
There are many players in this field. I contacted some of my industry peers and asked who they used. BAI came in at the top.
I love how in the final deliverables recommendations are provided. I’ve seen other solutions (and past vendors) who simply tell you what’s wrong without any help to remediate.
The dedicated engineer that learns our environment is huge! Also, the reporting is as high level or granular as you need it to be.
We have worked with BAI Security for 5+ years. They are professional, knowledgeable and personable. The technicians have a great understanding of our complex infrastructure
Price was right, service was excellent, and the final deliverables were outstanding. Great team.
