Our penetration testing services are designed to assess the security of an organization by mimicking real-world cyberattacks using advanced skills, tools and techniques. The objective of our methodology is not only to identify critical issues, but evaluate whether vulnerabilities and other potential misconfigurations are actually exploitable, and what risks they ultimately represent in an organization's overall IT security posture.
A penetration test will help your organization build resilience against cyberattacks and prioritize vulnerability remediation efforts.
Detailed Approach to Penetration Testing
Schneider Downs' security professionals take a holistic approach to penetration testing. We simulate the actions of a real-world attacker and attempt to exploit vulnerabilities, misconfigurations in critical systems or lapses in employee judgment/training to gain access to sensitive data and systems. Our team of experienced professionals are experienced in identifying security gaps that hackers currently use, and anticipate the avenues hackers are likely to exploit in specific situations.
Our comprehensive penetration testing approach is constantly updated to keep pace with an ever-changing threat landscape. This approach is built to provide your organization with not only sound tactical recommendations, but thought-provoking ideas on how to improve your security posture strategically over time. Our testing team will work with you to identify your goals and will execute an overall testing strategy based on our experience and training. Our cybersecurity professionals will be in constant communication with your team during the project lifecycle to ensure immediate notification of critical risks uncovered and to provide knowledge transfer.
Ultimately, we will deliver a detailed report with findings and actionable recommendations that are documented, and describe verified vulnerabilities for systems, applications, operating systems, hardware, devices and any other components that are in scope.
