Fox Data Cybersecurity is far more than investing in hardware and software. First and foremost, cyber security is a business issue. This means that top management is accountable for ensuring that its organisation’s cyber security strategy meets business objectives and is adopted as a strategic risk .
Discussions of cyber risk at board level should include identifying which risks to avoid, accept, mitigate or transfer (such as through cyber insurance), as well as reviewing specific plans associated with each approach.
VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT & PENETRATION TESTING (VAPT)
Vulnerability assessment provides on-demand scanning of the entire network, including wireless networks, by providing solutions to patch all the possible vulnerabilities and enforce enacted policies.
Penetration testing provides a quick and detailed analysis of current exposure of the systems or network to vulnerabilities, which threaten critical technological assets.
Fox Data’s vulnerability assessment and penetration testing have been designed to help organizations determine the degree to which an enterprise’s critical information systems and infrastructure components are susceptible to intentional attack or unfortunate error as a result of weaknesses or vulnerabilities, inherent even in the most popular applications and operating systems. 99% of all intrusions result from the exploitation of unknown vulnerabilities or configuration errors, when counter measures are actually available. This is what we aim to identify and seal.
Classically, IT security risk has been seen as the responsibility of the IT or network staff, as those individuals have the best understanding of the components of the control infrastructure. Moreover, security risk assessments have typically been performed within the IT department with little or no input from others.
As systems and networks have become complex, there is a need to perform security risk assessments that employ the enterprise risk assessment approach and include all stakeholders to ensure that all aspects of the IT organization are addressed, including hardware and software, employee awareness training, and business processes. IT enterprise security risk assessments are performed to allow organizations to assess, identify and modify their overall security posture and to enable security, operations, organizational management and other personnel to collaborate and view the entire organization from an attacker’s perspective. This process is required to obtain organizational management’s commitment to allocate resources and implement the appropriate security solutions.
A comprehensive enterprise security risk assessment also helps determine the value of the various types of data generated and stored across the organization. Without valuing the various types of data in the organization, it is nearly impossible to prioritize and allocate technology resources where they are needed the most. To accurately assess risk, management must identify the data that are most valuable to the organization, the storage mechanisms of said data and their associated vulnerabilities.
Fox Data’s structured approach and rigorous IT acumen helps organizations get to the bottom of real issues and help them analyze various options and operations threadbare. This ensures effective preparation and a meticulous approach to structured enhancements.
Web Application Testing (WAT)
The Internet has become the veritable lifeline to business operations. Web applications help businesses effectively harness this potential by combining the ease and familiarity of a browser experience with cross platform compatibility and functionality. But what are the methods to gauge the effectiveness of such operations? How can security aspects be assessed and fixed? How are such vulnerabilities identified? This and many more such associated questions are answered by Fox Data’s comprehensive web application security testing process. Our focus here is very simple – to work with you to achieve your business goals, and partner for the next level of improvements in order to attain competitive advantage in any scenario.
By accessing the vulnerabilities in the application layer, pushing the limits of defenses in networks, uncovering application loopholes and configuration errors, a high level of quality assurance is achieved. Fox Data's web-testing cycle walks through a series of tasks specially designed for the identification of vulnerabilities of assets exposed to the public domain. Each step is a result of meticulous researched study, which follows a proven methodology. Every stage of the methodology generates an output that may serve as a piece of information for individual reporting or as input for a subsequent task.
