Can you say that you already have methods and technologies of security monitoring such as SOC Services, SIEM, Vulnerability Management and regular audits? If not, no problem. We take all this into account and adapt our approach accordingly. Would you like to assess your security level without already using one or more of these services? Again, no problem. Or do you want to test systems, web applications, IoT or incident response teams? We are your partner for this as well. Our assessments range from minor threat detection all the way to comprehensive penetration tests. We also offer specialized APT / Ransomware Assessments, IoT and Machine Assessments and as well as Ethical Hacking probing.
Why CLUE Security Assessment?
- Data storage in specially secured applications
- Execution according to standards, e.g. OSSTMM and OWASP
- Meaningful and detailed reports
- Ongoing support long after assessment
- Risk classification
- IT infrastructure, IoT, machines, web applications, cloud services
- Reasonable, flexible and company-specific execution of services
Select your Assessment:
Are you aware that, in recent years, malware has successfully infested IT infrastructures of all types of companies and caused considerable damage? Many attacks are based on already published advisories and vulnerabilities. It is therefore indispensable for every company to find and get under control any issues that could cause unnecessary exposure.
Who really benefits from a Vulnerability Assessment?
Any company that does not already have some kind of comprehensive way of identifying and dealing with security threats.
Are you currently hosting some of your web services or smartphone app backend servers on AWS EC2 and need full control over existing and new vulnerabilities on these systems? Want to verify the efficiency of your patch management or WSUS environment? Are your employees very mobile and make use of devices which are rarely connected to the corporate network? Does your product offering include the building of machines and would you like to offer these to your customers securely configured and protected? All these questions are relevant and quite easily solved and dealt with through the use of Vulnerability Assessments.
Vulnerability Management Service
- Efficiently scans the entire network for vulnerabilities
- Identifies easy targets of attack
- Automates thousands of security checks
- Ensures once-off or continuous vulnerability management
- Makes perimeter scans, infrastructure scans or cloud scans possible
- Encourages passive scanning of sensitive devices such as machines
The components of such a security assessment can consist of internal and external tests, as well as Ransomware protection validation, policy reviews and the audit of security components.
What happens when we find areas of concern? Well, firstly, all identified vulnerabilities or less well-protected systems are subjected to more detailed and in-depth testing. This is all done, of course, in consultation with you. Next, we put together a comprehensive report, with actionable points recommended. The report allows you to see a prioritized list of identified vulnerabilities and suggestions for optimizing your IT infrastructure. This gives you the informed power to decide whether a risk can be ignored for the moment, negated or whether you want to invest in risk reduction and avoidance.
Who really benefits from a Security Assessment?
Due to rapid technical advances, more and more devices find themselves based on very common and ubiquitous software technologies such as embedded Windows and Linux operating systems. This is not always an advantage though, any weaknesses in these systems will have a compounded knock-on effect with a wider reach across platforms.
Do you develop or build products based on these technologies? Do you use security measures such as firewalls, VPN, proxies, strong authentication, network access controls, enterprise corporate Wifi, log management or SIEM in your IT infrastructure and want to put them through their paces? Or would you like to prepare your company for an external audit? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it is you who can really benefit from a security assessment.
Security Assessment Service
- Coverage of the entire network and applications on an ongoing basis
- Identification, evaluation and closure of weak points
- Revision and optimization of security policies
- Robust protection of the IT infrastructure against attacks
- Verification of compliance requirements and user guidelines (GDPR Compliance)
- Handling information security, security rules and user data
Ransomware / APT Assessment
This type of malware has become notorious in being successful in infecting IT infrastructures as it is not circulated only once, like classic viruses, but makes effective use of modern obfuscation mechanisms. Interestingly, it is often generated specifically for a target or company. This is why, unfortunately, classic anti-malware solutions often do not detect them.
To counteract this, we not only test all the various transmission and communication channels that could be used by Ransomware, but also take a closer look at what options are available in terms of damage control such as segmentation and disaster recovery strategies.
Who really benefits from a Ransomware Assessment?
Ransomware does not discriminate between large and small companies. It attacks computer systems, takes data from systems, attempts to recognize other data releases on neighbouring systems and to encrypt them all. This means that neighbouring systems are also partially affected.
The risk of such an attack should not be underestimated by any company, regardless of size or activity: After all, large-scale system failures cause immense damage regardless who is affected.
Are you unaware of your current protection against Ransomware? Have you ever carried out a system test or want to have your new protection mechanisms tested? Then a Ransomware Assessment is exactly the right thing for you.
Ransomeware Assessment Service
- Validation of transmission paths
- Reverse communication test – C&C servers
- Recognition and validation at the endpoint
- Assessment of preventive measures
- Advice on disaster recovery concepts
Vulnerability assessments, while effective in using fully automated tests to uncover weaknesses, don`t necessarily present your system with an actively offensive attacking opponent. It can be compared to the difference between testing a yacht in controlled conditions on the factory floor or throwing it into a stormy sea – this rigorous rattling of your IT cage will reveal whether or not there is a deeper layer of potential exposure or not.
Who really benefits from Penetration Testing?
New service providers, implementation of new requirements or the acquisition of companies means that your IT surroundings are constantly in flow. We recommend that a penetration test should be carried out regularly to allow for the secure optimization and development of your company.
Can you say that you already rely on Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRT) to continuously monitor IT and security events and use extensive technologies to defend yourself against cyber- attacks? Do you develop applications or systems that process critical data or control infrastructures? Are you subject to compliance requirements, which you must meet and prove? Then you can rely on a penetration test provide you with actionable information to comprehensively close the door to any aggressive outside interference and to keep you ahead of compliance regulations.
Penetration Testing Service
- Validates your security strategy and processes
- Red Team as a Service
- Identification, evaluation and closure of vulnerabilities
- Primarily unprivileged tests
- Internal Business units need not be directly involved
- Manual verification of results
How does the process work?
Each assessment starts with a kick-off meeting onsite. This meeting is to essentially understand the requirements and goals that you need addressed. Based on this, we use our considerable experience to define the methodology and best practice procedure to meet your expectations.
After all points have been clarified to your satisfaction, we move forward with the official security assessment, consisting of:
- Essential Information Retrieval
- The looking for and initial analysis of vulnerabilities
- Verification and assessment of vulnerabilities
- Formulation of a report of the above
- Presentation of results
- Recommendations for further action
