Today’s hackers are smarter, faster, and harder to track than ever before. Penetration testing, sometimes referred to as Internet security auditing, network security assessment, or ethical hacking, involves using a trusted third party to perform penetration assignments to ensure that the organization maintains an effective barrier against a myriad of potential threats. It takes an expert to recognize what a skilled hacker can do. IIT’s penetration testing team has the experience and tools to yield high quality results. IIT’s team researches the latest security issues, technologies, vulnerabilities and exposures, and uses this information to develop practical penetration tests, using an extensive suite of open source testing tools. IIT’s testing approach is designed to provide clients with an accurate assessment of their security issues and needs and enables them to stay far ahead of individual hackers and organized cyber attack teams.
IIT’s penetration testing methodology is both unobtrusive and ongoing. Testing is performed at random times throughout each cycle: business hours, nights, weekends, holidays, and peak hours. Significant time has been dedicated to ensuring that penetration testing does not slow down a network. In many instances, clients’ firewalls, IDS’ and other software have been completely unaware of the penetration testing. This allows IIT to test for security gaps that are more likely to appear during heavy traffic periods, without reducing client network response time. IIT’s independence from affiliation with specific tools and technologies ensures that our clients receive unbiased and complete results.
