Penetration Testing Services

Penetration testing, also known as “ethical hacking”, is an industry-standard methodology that involves placing skilled professionals in the role of internal and/or external intruders seeking to compromise an organization’s assets.

These assessments could include both technical and physical security evaluations. The very best leave no stone unturned to combine as many vectors as possible to provide a complete picture of the organizational security posture.

When assessments of this type have never been performed, or have not been performed on a consistent and ongoing basis, the business does not possess a current concept of the true nature and scope of the actual vulnerabilities. This often results in uncertainty and an inability for the management team to take concrete, meaningful steps towards risk mitigation.

How It Works

KRYPTON will perform in-depth penetration testing on our client’s business assets. Our consultants are recognized industry experts and will utilize a high level of technical skill to seek out the vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could exploit.

KRYPTON will work diligently within a predetermined time frame on breaching the client’s organization using the same technical tools and methodologies that are available and in use by malicious actors on the global stage.

The value of a business culture that is fully invested in managing and mitigating risk cannot be overstated, and it is KRYPTON’s job to identify any areas of neglect. KRYPTON will implement a test program that includes the type of real-world threats faced every day, from “spear-phishing” to procedural errors that could lead to unintended breaches of client confidentiality.

KRYPTON can work with the client’s staff to instill a pervasive culture of security awareness throughout the organization and help minimize the chance that an inadvertent slip will cause a disruption of business or a costly data breach.

This comprehensive process, when custom-tailored to the organization’s specific requirements, will allow KRYPTON to discover as many potential attack vectors as possible – with the end-result of generating true, actionable intelligence so the necessary steps may be taken to eliminate these identified weaknesses using both technical and procedural safeguards before they may be used against the business and compromise operational integrity.

During this process, KRYPTON will work hand-in-hand with the client’s security and technical teams to complete the assessment. The output always includes a pragmatic report that details implementable solutions in a manner that is both useful to the organization’s technical department and clearly understandable to the management team.
