Posture analysis helps prevent a data breach, test internal and external controls to ensure business and system security. Find existing vulnerabilities and take definitive steps to view potential threats and to determine the risk levels.

Vulnerability Testing

A process that determines to eliminate, mitigate or tolerate vulnerabilities based upon risk and the cost associated with fixing the vulnerability.

What We do

Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also takes into account the other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. This evaluation leads to correct the vulnerabilities and remove the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. A vulnerability management process should be part of an organizations’ effort to control information security risks.

How We Do Our Assessment

Planning: Working with a customer to clearly define and document assessment objectives, scope, and rules of engagement.

Policy: Establish process, standards, and guidelines.

Inventory/ Gathering Information: Discover all assets across the network. Collecting and examining the key information of an application and its infrastructure to identify all technological vulnerabilities.

Discovering Vulnerabilities: Determine vulnerabilities on assets to find existing vulnerabilities, using both manual and automated techniques to analyze False-Positives and False-Negatives.

Threats and Risk: View potential threats and determine its current and projected risk levels.

Reporting: Provide a comprehensive report with deep analysis and recommendations on how to mitigate the discovered vulnerabilities.

Remediation: Proactively fix vulnerabilities.

The Benefits

  • Demonstrate that the organization addressed all the key issues relating to information security
  • Justify spending an appropriate amount to secure corporate assets and minimize business risks
  • Provides evidence, that some measures were taken to protect personal information
  • Gain a significant competitive advantage over slower moving business rivals

Penetration Testing

A penetration test is an attack on a computer system, network or a web application that has vulnerabilities which an attacker could exploit to their benefits.

What We do

A penetration test is an attack on a computer system, network or web application that can have vulnerabilities which an attacker could exploit with the intention of finding personal information by potentially gaining access to the system, its functionality, and the data. Penetration tests can be automated with software applications or can be done manually.

How We Do Our Assessment

Gathering information about the target before the test (reconnaissance).

Identifying possible entry points (Port scanning).

Attempting to break in (either virtually or for real).

Reporting back the findings.

The Benefits

  • Prevent data breach
  • Test your security controls
  • Ensure system security
  • Get a baseline
  • Ensure compliance

Web Application Security Assessment

Hackers are now attacking through applications because it’s easier to enter than through the network layer. So web application security is of super importance.

What We do

According to a Gartner Report, 75% of attacks today occur at the application level. Despite the common use of defenses such as firewalls and intrusion detection or prevention systems, hackers still pose serious legal liability without being stopped or even detected. Hackers either seek to compromise the corporate network or the end-users accessing the website by subjecting them to Drive-by downloading. As a result, the industry is paying increased attention to the security of the web applications themselves in addition to the security of the underlying computer network and operating systems.

How We Do Our Assessment

Assessment: Our approach is based on best practices such as OWASP and OSSTM. Our methodology for security assessment is based on the following approach.

Discovery: We work with the clients to understand the business impact of various features so that we can quantify the business risk of the vulnerabilities we find.

Reporting and Deliverables: At the end of the engagement, we produce a detailed, written report with an executive summary prioritizing findings, and how it impacts your business with detailed recommendations.

The Benefits

  • Provides a secure extension of business applications.
  • Identify application security issues before they get exploited
  • Increases real-world perspective into hacker techniques and motivations
  • Helps to achieve and maintain compliance with federal and state regulations
  • Prevents loss of customer’s confidential information

Cloud Assessment Security

Cloud computing offers some significant advantages to organizations, including hardware independence, reduced costs, high availability, and flexibility.

What We do

But with the benefits of cloud computing, it has brought risks that have forced organizations to rethink about their confidentiality, integrity, defense in depth, incident response and forensic strategies. In this new cloud landscape organizations have to enhance their existing strategies, policies, and processes to ensure security controls are in place to mitigate these risks.

How We Do Our Assessment

Requirement Detailing: In this phase, AAN Systems information security consultants works closely with the client to understand their business and compliance requirements for the assessment.

Cloud Architecture and Design Assessment: The Cloud architecture & design assessment phase helps in understanding the overall design and architecture of the organizations’ cloud infrastructure.

Governance, Policies and Procedures Review: Asset Management, Data Security, Endpoint security control, Change Management, Compliance and audit, Incident response management and forensics, Business continuity and disaster recovery management are some of the areas that need to be reviewed.

The Benefits

  • Helps organizations assess their preparedness against cloud-based attacks.
  • Identify existing vulnerabilities and control gaps related to physical and application security
  • Enhancing your existing policies, processes, and standards and match them against industry best practices
  • Assurance to client and business partners that the cloud solution is secure
  • A comprehensive report with a summary of findings and recommendations for clients and business partners
