Ready to make the most of your security assessment?

Cyberattacks are growing daily from attempts to steal financial data to espionage. Being secure yesterday doesn’t mean a company will be secure tomorrow. 

Have you ever thought how difficult is to identify your own weaknesses? Happens in Cybersecurity too. And, as in real life, acknowledging and rectifying them is key to success. 
 
So, how do you identify your weak points? And how do you improve them? That’s our job! Knowing your vulnerabilities—and the ways in which attackers could exploit them— is one of the greatest insights you can get to improve your security program. Advoqt’s Penetration testing team will simulate a real-world attack on your networks, applications, devices, and/or people to demonstrate the security level of your business and show you how to strengthen it. 
 
Just like a good friend, your mom or a tutor – when we pinpoint weaknesses, it helps. 

Is your data safe?

Let our experts simulate an attack to your business and show you its weaknesses – and how to fortify your defenses.

Find vulnerabilities before hackers can 

Protecting your IT environment 24/7 is an enormous challenge, so the best way to protect it
is thinking and acting like an attacker.   
Penetration testing with Advoqt will assess the resilience of your company against a cyber-attack and lets you find the weaknesses in your system before a malicious actor does. Using our proven methodology, our skilled and knowledgeable experts will help you identify points of failure and paths that are vulnerable to exploitation and provide detailed guidance on how to fix your vulnerabilities.

What can you expect? 

What, when and how 

Forget those long lists of problems with no clue where to start! Advoqt provides a plan.
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.  

Beyond identifying threats – A Business Perspective. 

No industry is immune to cyber risk. You need to make sure your company step-up the quality and speed of its Cybersecurity efforts.  
Engage in developing your organization’s cyber strategy is key to moving from simply identifying security threats and fixes to also defining business impacts, governance methods, risk escalation steps, and organizational responses.
Every company has its particularities, and even your data can tell your unique story.

FAQs

When do we need a Penetration Test?
  • Prior to contracting a breach insurance 
  • If you notice viruses, malware, spyware on workstations 
  • After implementing significant changes in your website or network 
  • If you notice unauthorized traffic on your network 
  • When a security audit for HIPAA or PCI-DSS is needed 
  • After installing new software or other upgrades 
  • Prior to submission of application for breach insurance 
  • If you store valuable data and have never had one 

What deliverables can we expect from your Pentest?
We provide customized finding reports including an executive summary without any technical jargon, detailed descriptions of each vulnerability in both business and technical terms, and detailed recommendations on how to fix things. 

How often should we get a Penetration Test?
While every business need is different, it’s best practice to perform penetration tests regularly, 1 – 2 times per year. 

How do you ensure Advoqt’s Penetration Testing Quality?

During each engagement, the Pentest Lead is responsible for ensuring that each individual finding and the overall report meets Advoqt‘s high level of expectations. Our professionals are very experienced individuals, this provides accountability for Advoqt to deliver consistently strong results. 

How much does it cost?
The cost for penetration testing varies greatly. A number of factors are used to determine pricing including size of the environment we are testing, scope of the project (external, internal, wireless, applications, etc), and the frequency of testing. A small company can expect a figure of around $20,000 while large firms often invest hundreds of thousands across their many systems. 

We are performing a vulnerability scan, should we conduct a Pentest?

Yes, a vulnerability assessment is the process of identifying threats and vulnerabilities on a target by using automated vulnerability scanners.  A pentest is often initiated by various scenarios which can include (but are not limited to) application launches, major network/application changes or updates, compliance regulations or a breach/leak from a targeted attack. 

Since vulnerability scans leverage preconfigured pattern recognition, there are many aspects of a system that cannot be tested completely, or at all. Penetration Testing provides coverage for serious security faults that scanners are incapable of testing and will definitely improve the security posture of an organization. 

What are the main risks of not conducting a Pentest?

1) Loss of money: Data breaches and security incidents are becoming increasingly costly. According to the “Cost of a data breach 2019” report from IBM and the Ponemon Institute, each record lost costs around $242 in the U.S. 

2) Negative impact on your reputation: Improving your security posture is not only about technology but about retaining the trust of your customers and protecting your company’s reputation. Data breaches can result in some of the most impactful downturns in sentiment for your organization. 

3) Discontinuity in your operations: Cybersecurity events — if properly mitigated — may not be damaging enough to disrupt the continuity of your business. You should establish a robust plan and controls to ensure business continuity in the event of an active security event.
