Identifying and remediating exploitable vulnerabilities and misconfigurations is a staple of the cyber security services industry, but can often fail to reflect the real ways an attacker will target an organisation. Our flexible testing model and threat-led approach pinpoints the areas of greatest risk from the perspective of an attacker, aligning the cost of control with risk exposure for optimal security testing and remediation.
JUMPSEC Penetration Testing services simulate the techniques and tradecraft leveraged by advanced cyber attackers, to deliver robust assurances that you are secured from cyber threats. JUMPSEC services are designed to help clients to both understand and reduce their risk exposure by delivering an authentic assessment of resilience to real-world cyber threats.
JUMPSEC’s testing approach is based on a range of industry best practices, using methodologies derived from a range of best practices, testing frameworks and standards. JUMPSEC consultants are suitably qualified and experienced, with certifications from industry recognised bodies such as CREST, attesting to their technical and professional standards.
We simulate the techniques and tradecraft leveraged by advanced cyber attackers to deliver an authentic assessment of resilience to real-world cyber threats. Our goal-focused approach is designed to reduce vulnerability noise by focusing on the issues which are most likely to be exploited during an attack, with the greatest potential impact to your business.
The list below isn’t exhaustive and we regularly combine elements (and add new ones) to create custom solutions, solving unique challenges and delivering specific outcomes for our clients.
Penetration Testing (Internal / External) Find out more here.
Attackers rarely target a specific application or component in isolation. Open-scope Penetration Testing enables organisations to understand how security flaws can be chained by an adversary across a broader network environment to cause harm to the business. This can be performed from both an external and internal perspective, simulating the threat posed by an internet-based adversary or an attacker with a pre-existing foothold in the network.
Application Penetration Testing
Regular security testing is a key part of the assurance lifecycle for digital applications, identifying vulnerabilities that could affect the confidentiality, integrity or availability of systems or data. We combine automated and manual testing, from both an authenticated and unauthenticated perspective, using a repeatable methodology based on industry standards. Our approach addresses key vulnerability types and sub-types, while enabling the human tester to apply their intuition to discover more complex vulnerabilities.
Network Penetration Testing
Maintaining robust network infrastructure is critical to preventing the disruption or destruction of critical business services, encompassing all networked devices and connecting infrastructure such as routers, switches, systems, and hosts. Network testing can be performed from both an external and internal perspective, to determine the susceptibility of the attack surface to breaches, and effectiveness of defensive controls against network traversal and the compromise of critical information assets.
Physical Penetration Testing
Cyber attackers are not constrained to virtual methods of achieving their goals. While virtual attack vectors often represent the route of least complexity and risk for an attacker, cyber criminals can turn to physical methods to bypass virtual controls protecting an organisation’s digital assets, gaining direct access to internal systems and physically stored information. We perform both covert and collaborative assessments to assess the implementation of physical controls and safeguards, and improve resilience to hybrid attacks.
Managed Vulnerability Scanning
Regularly scanning for vulnerabilities is complementary to manual Penetration Testing, providing visibility of exposure to ‘known-bad’ vulnerabilities. This ensures that emerging exploits affecting your assets can be identified and remediated early without relying on the next scheduled test to discover. We provide cost effective security protection and vulnerability alerting, with continuous scanning to identify and remediate emerging vulnerabilities and reduce the potential window of exploitation for attackers.
Build / Configuration Review
Uplifting the standard level of security for networked devices is a cost-effective and scalable means of increasing the security baseline across the organisation. We audit the operating system and security configurations of target servers, workstations, and other employee or organisational devices to enhance ‘default’ controls protecting against common attacker tactics and techniques such as privilege escalation, malware delivery, and exploitation of software vulnerabilities.
Firewall Configuration Review
Secure Firewall configuration is dependent upon defined rules that monitor and filter incoming and outgoing network traffic. We assess the effectiveness and suitability of the rulesets applied to evaluate whether the Firewall configuration is appropriate for the environment in which it is deployed. Reviewing Firewall configuration provides assurance that inappropriate rules are not applied, increasing the attack surface or introducing unnecessary risk.
Code Security Review
In-depth analysis of an application’s codebase can be performed to validate that the application has been coded in-line with industry best practice. We perform dynamic and static analysis using both manual and automated methods to uncover more sophisticated vulnerabilities which will not be identified during routine testing. This level of testing is typically reserved for in-house custom developed applications with strict compliance requirements, representing the highest level of assessment.
Cloud Security Assessment
Testing in the cloud differs from traditional testing in that it focuses primarily on the audit of controls that can be applied from the management plane as opposed to vulnerability testing of the underlying infrastructure (or “fabric”). We use a combination of automated tooling and manual investigation from an authenticated perspective to identify all the services deployed within the environment and any misconfigurations or control gaps affecting them.
Penetration Testing is a core component of any effective cyber security programme. Regular assessment of your digital assets will help to prevent attackers from exploiting vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that will enable them to subvert, disrupt or destroy the digital services upon which your business depends.
