Software applications have been an attractive attack vector for some time now given their ability to decentralize exploit attempts from attackers. Unlike network and system level exploits, the possibilities for attackers to leverage vulnerabilities in software applications are endless. With proper security testing and remediation, VerSprite helps provide a fighting chance.
Chasing vulnerabilities and new exploits can easily distract many organizations from addressing their real problem - their threats. Threat modeling provides a tactical way of addressing specific attacks and vulnerabilities that have a higher degree of probability for occurrence as well as business impact. Let VerSprite help you build a threat model that truly address application security risk.
Vulnerability management is much more than just the muscle of an automated scanning tool. Our expertise business infrastructure along with understanding application and network security allows us to find what assets require remediation effectively and efficiently. Keeping our finger on the pulse of the ever changing security community and comprehending all newly released vulnerabilities keeps our clients safe and up to date.
The key differentiator to a VerSprite pen test is in our ability to look at the bigger picture. By not limiting our approach to encompass only one set of controls (network, application, physical, system) to defeat, we are able to simulate a true attack scenario. A diverse range of tactics, tools, and talent support our team of pen testers in conducting internal and external penetration testing services. A true attacker will not stop if the front door of your network is locked and neither will we.
Red Team Exercises
What would an attacker do? Learning to think like an attacker is not easy when you're focused on business related efforts. Press releases, vendor relationships, posh new office locations, social media updates are just a few intel sources that attackers use to build a comprehensive attack plan. The attacker doesn't rest at simply exploiting your network or your internet facing web application, so how do you really know you're in the clear? Red Team Exercises aim to provide a simulated, controlled attack, in order to see how your response and detective measures would fare in a realistic attack scenario that encompasses multiple dimensions of attack vectors.
Web Application Security
To accurately and thoroughly assess the security of a web application requires not only a combination of automated and manual testing, but an understanding of the software behind the application. Gathering comprehensive information through reconnaissance and analyzing it effectively does not stop at running tools. Having a background in a wide variety of technologies leads to efficient use of attack vectors and successful security assessments.
Source Code Analysis
A common wall that is hit while planning source code analysis is the limits of both automated scanning tools and manual analysis. Automated tools can miss vulnerabilities and generate false positives and manual reading of source code can be an arduous task with similar errors. VerSprite avoids both of these scenarios by using a threat model approach to streamline our analysis focusing on the areas of your code that are likely to be exploited, identify the problem and perform effective remediation.
