Penetration Testing


CyberGuard’s network and application penetration testing meets or exceed the requirements for all well-known and established regulatory and compliance standards, including PCI DSS, FISMA, MARS-E, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, ISO, and many more. Our methodology is based on the industry-accepted penetration testing approach derived from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) (“NIST SP 800-115”) – “Technical Guide to Information Security Testing and Assessment”, the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (“OSSTMM”) – authored by the Institute for Security and Open Methodologies (“ISECON”), and the Open Web Application Security Project (“OWASP”) testing methodologies. These methodologies were then augmented by CyberGuard proprietary Penetration Testing Methodology.

CyberGuard can perform a multitude of penetration testing, including:

  • Network & Systems
  • Web Application
  • Mobile Application
  • Wi-Fi
  • Physical

Penetration testing is ethical hacking conducted by a security professional to uncover potential vulnerabilities, which can consequentially lead to a data breach. This test can help a Company remediate any issues before they are possibly exploited by a real intruder.

A penetration test of any sort ultimately consists of the following steps:

1.Research and Plan

2.Collect Information

3.Testing and Discovering Vulnerabilities

4.Reporting and Documentation

Remembering that prevention is far more cost-effective than recovery after a security breach, is the main purpose behind why your company should conduct a penetration test with CyberGuard Compliance. Our thorough and in-depth pen-tests will provide you with information on potential security threats hackers can exploit, allowing your company to prioritize the remediation of the identified vulnerabilities.
