Evaluating and testing how well an organization would fare in the face of a real attack is not just precautionary, but a necessity in today’s cyber world as attackers are constantly probing for new weaknesses and vulnerabilities in networks. Red Siege offers penetration testing and vulnerability assessments to report on the issues that have a real risk to an organization. The testing includes the vulnerability scans of the in-scope systems where the team experts manually verify issues and exploit them. As Penetration Testing is the commonly used security testing technique for web applications, Red Siege’s team leverages it to perform an in-depth analysis of the web application to find vulnerabilities related to misconfiguration, programming errors, and application architectural issues.
To overcome the limitations of penetration testing and test an organization’s detection and response capabilities, Red Siege conducts red team testing. The company offers Red Team Adversary Simulation, which is a goal-based assessment where the team enacts attack scenarios to reveal potential physical, hardware, software and human vulnerabilities just like a real world adversary. It includes external attacks and targeted phishing to demonstrate the real risk to the data into consideration. After penetrating and gaining access to the organization’s systems like an actual attacker, the team identifies key targets and utilizes the latest tools and techniques to avoid detection and determine vulnerabilities. After the discovery phase, they offer remediation assistance and re-testing. “It’s not only that we discover the vulnerabilities and give remediation, but we also provide ways to validate the fix in the place. The re-test is in our elegant, high-quality reports, which can be used by both management and technical professionals, tasked with resolving vulnerabilities,” explains Medin.
We believe in framing security around business needs and risks in order to bring out vulnerabilities in the context of the business
With a team of renowned experts, Red Siege aims to continue working towards uncovering more vulnerabilities in the networks, web applications, and mobile applications to prevent ever-increasing cyber attacks. The company also plans to add more talented members in the team and expand its global market reach into Europe and South America to grow exponentially. “Our biggest differentiator is that we don’t try to do everything, instead we believe in doing one thing and doing it perfectly. We focus exclusively on penetration testing and red teaming, and that’s what our passion is, and that’s what we do best,” states Medin.
