How to Discover Weak Links in Your IT Structure

Your wireless costs might increase because of COVID-19 – but they won’t if you follow these 3 steps.

IT SecurityAnyone who has spent even a little time around IT systems understands how critical security systems are to your success. Between online thieves and malicious hackers trying to steal personal information and compromise a business’s data, one weak link in your IT structure could cause serious setbacks to your organization and even harm your clients’ businesses. You must constantly and vigilantly update your security policy by regularly auditing and testing your security infrastructure. Because security threats are constantly changing and evolving, the question isn’t if an attacker will find a vulnerability but when they will find a vulnerability. It only takes one security breach to ruin your reputation, and our security services will help ensure that your infrastructure doesn’t become compromised.

Proactive Penetration Testing

The best way to maintain a solid defense is to take proactive measures to find flaws and weak points in your security infrastructure. That’s why we perform our penetration testing from an attacker’s perspective. It isn’t enough to just implement the latest security technologies, cross your fingers, and hope for the best. The most important step of securing your network, which many businesses fail to do, is performing security audits to actively look for holes in your security and flaws in your infrastructure.

Port Scanning

Many people think that it is a simple matter to place a firewall at the edge of your network to close up potentially dangerous ports. Unfortunately, many professionals neglect diligent LAN port security. However, if a LAN device becomes compromised, you leave your local infrastructure open to an attack. It is essential to implement strict security policies both internally and externally to protect your data. We help our clients with comprehensive port scanning to ensure that no unnecessary sockets are left open.

Firewall Access Testing

Arguably, a compromised firewall is one of the worst situations for your network because it gives attackers a lot of control over your security infrastructure. After a firewall is compromised, an attacker has access to myriad sensitive information and configuration options such as:

  • Usernames and passwords
  • The ability to open ports to facilitate further attacks
  • VPN passwords and certificates that could be used to decrypt VPN data
  • The ability to map out local networking topologies
  • The ability to redirect information to facilitate man-in-the-middle attacks

Comprehensive Security Services

Our security program will help you with the following services:

  • Determine the scope of your security risks. You can’t protect your infrastructure from a threat you don’t know about. What you don’t know can hurt you.
  • Complete network surveys to provide a big picture of your current telecom profile
  • Port scanning to look for potential holes in your security systems
  • System fingerprinting
  • Services identification
  • Vulnerability research & scanning
  • SQL/Application testing
  • Password testing
  • Firewall access testing
  • Router testing

The Nature of Security

Infrastructure security is inherently dynamic because it is based on technologies that are constantly changing. When you stop continually updating, improving, and monitoring your security infrastructure, you give malicious attackers around the world an opportunity to wreak havoc on your data. Instead of leaving the door open for digital hackers and thieves, consider seeking our expert counsel. Our security auditing services will ensure that your business doesn’t become the next disastrous news headline.
