Network Security Assessments & Audits

AttackLab security experts understand the dynamic threats facing businesses today and will work with your staff to develop a solution that works. AttackLab staff are certified by the National Security Agency’s IAM/IEM.

External Assessment

Securing the perimeter of your network is essential in ensuring that your network can withstand blows from malicious attackers. External Penetration Testing or “hacking from the internet” identifies what malicious attackers can find, see, exploit, and how far an attacker can penetrate once a network foothold is gained.

Internal Assessment

Most networks are like candy, hard on the outside but soft and gooey on the inside. Security conscious professionals know that having a hardened interior network is just as important as having a hardened perimeter. Internal Penetration Testing assesses the security from the point of view of a corporate bad seed, disgruntled employee, or an attacker who has breached the perimeter through other means.

Wireless Security Assessment

WiFi in corporate settings has been increasing in popularity over the last decade. With weak WiFi security controls, an attacker could breach the perimeter of your network and access critical data, putting your company in the security breach hot seat. A Wireless Penetration Test will identify what mechanisms are in place to protect your wireless network and identify the current controls are sufficient in preventing unauthorized access to your network and data.

System Hardening & STIG Implementation Services

AttackLab cyber hardening addresses securing various threats and challenges across multiple domains, networks, and systems. Cyber hardening involves assessing platforms, mission systems, network systems, and other at-risk solutions, and then applying proven cyber models to help clients defend their networks, mitigate threats, protect their platforms, and continuously assess their systems – both from an internal and external perspective.

Our goal when hardening and securing systems is to provide our clients with a cyber-resilient environment and to reduce the consequences of attacks. We believe an important aspect of resiliency is cyber hardening and reducing the attack surface of a system and increasing the difficulty of system access and exploitation.

AttackLab applies a four-step methodology to securing and hardening our client’s network architecture and the systems that support it.

  • The first step involves an architectural review to seek out security flaws that an attacker could exploit to disrupt normal operation.
  • Once these flaws are identified, they’re prioritized from critical to low
  • We then look at the defense-in-depth risk-management techniques – such as remediating vulnerable software, adding security tools, developing policies, adding hardware, and then training client personnel so they can maintain the process.
  • Finally, tests are run to ensure that the mitigation is effective and steps taken have not introduced new flaws.

AttackLab actively works with its clients to enhance defense-in-depth strategies with solid system-administration practices – also known as cyber hygiene – supported with custom-developed automation tools.

Our experience is that It is difficult for clients to scale up their staff to mitigate constantly evolving attack techniques.  Adding more cyber expertise or system administrators to protect their networks would be ideal, but it isn’t always feasible. There’s a shortage of skilled cyber security personnel, and competition for them is high. One cost-efficient way to maneuver around the shortage in skilled cyber security personnel is to defend against attacks by leveraging automation tools and analytics as force multipliers which reduce the time it takes to reduce your organizations attack surface and then monitor the enterprise.

MSSP – Network Security Monitoring Services

Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) provide structural security solutions against cyberattacks, including always up-to-date expertise in the latest cyber threats and appropriate solutions.

What is a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP)?

Because security threats are becoming increasingly common, many organizations are partnering with a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP), often in addition to their existing security program. MSSPs like AttackLab provide professional monitoring and management, protecting hardware and data from potential cyberattacks.

AttackLab is a a third party Managed Security Service Provider that can manages and implement network security and other forms of security for your organization. This could include:

  • Blocking viruses and spam.
  • Managed Firewalls.
  • Detecting intrusion attempts.
  • Setting up and securing a virtual private network (VPN).
  • Implementing system changes or upgrades.

In addition, AttackLab MSSP services continuously monitor your organizations’ systems, servers, networks, applications and security devices. AttackLab can also provide a wide range of other related services, including:

  • Device management.
  • Log monitoring and management.
  • Vulnerability management.
  • Cyber Consulting services.

AttackLab Managed Security Service Provider services are generally provided via a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. This means that your organization doesn’t need to buy any extra hardware or hire additional staff – and this has a number of major benefits! We’ve listed some of them below:

Major benefits of having AttackLab as your MSSP

  1. Lower costs in many areas.
  2. More time to focus on your business.
  3. Access to unique expertise and tools.
  4. Direct cyber security.
  5. Automatic detection and fixing of vulnerabilities.
  6. Increased action-oriented insight and reduced alert fatigue.
  7. Scalability.
  8. Good guarantees and fast response times.

Cyber Risk Reduction & Threat Assessments

Mitigate Attacks before they occur with an AttackLab Security Threat Assessment

As the cyber threat landscape continues to evolve at an accelerating pace, organizations can improve security and mitigate risk by performing ongoing security threat assessments. From exposing weaknesses in systems to issues with compliance, a security threat assessment enables organizations to uncover hidden vulnerabilities in people, processes and technology – before a malicious actor can exploit them.

Conducting security threat assessments require a broad set of cyber skills and deep knowledge of both the threat landscape as well as industry accepted methods of remediation. When your IT security team lacks the resources, time or expertise to manage a superior security threat assessment, AttackLab can help.

Security Threat Assessment with AttackLab

Attacklab is committed to helping organizations plan, build and run successful security management programs (SMP) that combine the right products, services, people, processes, strategies and tactics. With help from AttackLab, businesses, governments and educational institutions can develop an information security framework that addresses needs at the strategic program level, the tactical project level and all levels in between.

From managing system, network security and ransomware response and eradication to mitigating viruses and identifying insider threats, our security threat assessment services can uncover vulnerabilities and highlight actions that enable you to make more informed decisions about reducing risk. Our services help you to:

  • Discover critical, exploitable vulnerabilities and provide detailed guidance for remediation.
  • Assess access points to critical systems and help to close pathways of attack.
  • Address vulnerabilities with a disciplined approach that helps to create a smaller attack surface.

AttackLab’s Cyber Security Threat Assessment Services

Our services for security threat assessment include:

  • Vulnerability discovery services such as vulnerability scanning that identify, quantify and rank vulnerabilities in systems by severity and recommend mitigation steps.
  • Security control assessment services that evaluate enterprise security efforts at a technical and program level, while analyzing controls, technology and procedures to identify points of failure.
  • Risk validation services to understand, quantify and document the real-world risk of an attack scenario.
  • Penetration testing services on a variety of systems from various perspectives to help identify risk.
  • Breach simulation services that simulate an attacker’s actions using subterfuge and distraction while identifying points of weakness, exploiting critical systems, exfiltrating data and creating a series of events that mimic an actual breach.
  • Red and Blue team services.
