WHAT IS CONTINUOUS SECURITY TESTING?
Modern threat actors are using automated tools to deploy newly created exploits en-mass within ever decreasing timescales. While Penetration testing is the traditional method of discovering vulnerabilities and is suited for an in depth security analysis it is limited to a fixed moment in time assessment.
Our Continuous Security Testing (CST) service is designed to supplement traditional penetration testing activities and gives you visibility of any potential vulnerabilities 365 days a year.
WHY CONDUCT CONTINUOUS SECURITY TESTING?
In the ever evolving threat landscape vulnerabilities and exploits are continuously released and automated attacks happen around the clock. As a result it is more important than ever for businesses to identify vulnerabilities within their estate and monitor changes to their attack surface more frequently than traditional penetration testing activities can allow. To Facilitate this requirement Continuous Security Testing (CST) can be employed to fill the void between more targeted Security Assessments and provide reassurance year-round.
Designed to be an on ongoing activity, Continuous Security Testing allows you to gain visibility of your systems & services and to evaluate their susceptibility to compromise year-round.
By combining vulnerability assessments with experianced manual testing it is possible to proactively assess large portions of your companies attack surface on a continual basis. Subsequently staying ahead of the curve with vulnerability management and rapidly eliminating risks as they emerge.
CST comprises one of several core components that together provide a comprehensive view of your organisations externally facing assets and integration with existing vulnerability management systems. Book a call with our team to find out more.
A Continuous Security Test will allow your business to:
- Receive assurance around the security posture of any web application.
- Make ongoing improvements to a web application’s security via specialist support, advice and consultancy.
- Adhere to regulatory bodies who require Web Application Testing to be performed.
- Gain access to a dedicated team of specialist CREST Registered penetration testers who use the latest tools and techniques to accurately assess and identify emerging threats
