PENETRATIon TESTING

We don't highlight your failings because it bothers you — we do it because we care.


Penetration Testing Service

In security as in life, the hardest weaknesses to pinpoint are your own. Fortunately, we have no problem thoroughly documenting all of your flaws. In fact, it’s kind of our job. And that’s a good thing: Knowing your vulnerabilities — and the ways in which attackers could exploit them — is one of the greatest insights you can get in improving your security program. With that in mind, TeslaWatt’s Penetration Testing Services team will simulate a real-world attack on your networks, applications, devices, and/or people to demonstrate the security level of your key systems and infrastructure and show you what it will take to strengthen it.

Way more than security experts

The best way to stop attackers is to think and act like an attacker. Which is why, unlike many security firms, we don’t hire recent grads or people with more experience in IT than security as pen testers. Instead, we find good people who know about bad things. Things like ATM hacking, multi-function printer exploitation, automobile keyless entry attacks, endpoint protection bypass techniques, RFID cloning, security alarm system bypass… you get the idea. And those kinds of people? They’re way more than security experts—they’re bonafide hackers.

To stay perpetually one step ahead of attackers—and help others do the same—our testers devote 25% of their time to conducting research and contribute to the security community, publishing articles, presenting at conferences, developing and releasing open source testing tools, and writing popular Metasploit modules.

What to fix, and when and how to fix it

The best you can hope for from most penetration tests is a long list of problems with little context on how to fix them or where to start. Helpful, right? TeslaWatt provides a prioritized list of issues, based on the exploitability and impact of each finding using an industry-standard ranking process. What can you expect? A detailed description and proof of concept for each finding, as well as an actionable remediation plan. And because we understand that risk severity is only one factor in prioritizing remediation efforts, we'll also provide insight into the level of effort needed to remediate the findings. In addition, you'll receive:

* An attack storyboard that walks you through sophisticated chained attacks
* Scorecards that compare your environment with best practices from an attacker’s perspective
* Positive findings that call out what security controls you have that are effective

Compliance is a by-product of good security

We believe that good security begets good compliance. That's why everything we do—from our investment and commitment in Metasploit to our new attacker analytics products—is focused on helping you better understand attackers and how to defend against them. This extends to our penetration testing services; every company’s network and challenges are unique, so our penetration testers tailor their methods and attack vectors for each engagement. We also conduct penetration tests on our own network and products regularly, to ensure they’re always up-to-date in detecting real-world attacks.
