What is characteristic to the security audit of IT systems, offered by SOFTIQ?

Our security audit is a comprehensive analysis of the degree of protection of IT systems and sensitive data of the company, conducted on the basis of an environmental interview, as well as collected materials, including, among others, security policies and procedures, network diagrams and systems documentation.

Security audit conducted by our experienced team allows us to:

Identify vulnerabilities in system security,
Identify vulnerabilities in system security,
Detect potential threats and determine their impact,

Prepare an action plan for various emergencies.

The effect of the IT systems security audit offered by SOFTIQ is a detailed report, describing the detected threats, their significance and ways to remove them.

Our security audit of the IT systems is divided into 3 stages: 

Planning – we get to know the specifics of the company, we select a team of skilled auditors, based on their competences, and we develop an audit plan.

Auditing - we collect and analyze information about the procedures used in the company; we verify the actions taken by specialists dealing with IT security in the company; we gain access to the systems and their documentation; we conduct interviews, perform vulnerability scans and compile the results for evaluation.

What are penetration tests and what are the benefits of conducting them?

Penetration tests are an attempt by our specialists to break the security of the systems or infrastructure elements indicated by you.
Thanks to the tests carried out by an experienced, external team, you gain knowledge about the real level of protection of confidential data in your company.
The purpose of the tests may be defined before they start, as well as may be the result of our initial audit.
Depending on the amount of information about systems that will be the target of our specialists, penetration tests can be carried out according to different scenarios, called “white box”, “gray box” or “black box”.

What are the results of penetration tests, professionally performed by SOFTIQ experts? 

Our team has extensive experience in designing system architecture in accordance with the highest security standards, their construction, implementation and auditing, as well as user training.

Thanks to carefully planned penetration tests, we are able to provide you with information not only about potential security threats resulting from improper configuration, errors in the source code or technical vulnerability.

In the course of our work, we also analyze the security procedures implemented in the company and take into account the level of awareness of users and their susceptibility to social engineering attacks.

The most important results of penetration tests include:

Independent assessment of the actual degree of security of IT systems in the company,
Identification of sensitive points of IT infrastructure, which are potential targets of an attack,
Measurement of the degree of confidentiality, integrity and availability of systems for unauthorized persons,
Analysis of the real level of risk related to the revealed vulnerabilities and security gaps,
Recommendations on how to remove weaknesses detected in security,
Developing recommendations to minimize the risk of similar problems in the future.

Types of penetration tests performed by SOFTIQ experts.

One of the key decisions that we help our Clients make is the selection of the most optimal of the three scenarios for conducting penetration tests.

The “white-box”, “grey-box” and “black-box” tests differ primarily in the amount of information about the system being the target of the attack that we receive from the Client. As a result, this affects, on the one hand, the level of complexity and time-consuming of the selected type of test for the team conducting it, and on the other hand, the degree to which the test simulates the real course of a potential attack.

What are the different penetration test scenarios?

“White-box” variant:

  • The team has full documentation of the tested solution provided by the client.
  • It simulates an attack performed by a person with access to the source code and project documentation, as well as full access to the system at any level of permissions.
  • Penetration testing in this form is accurate, usually takes less time and costs less than other variants, but it does not reflect the most likely course of an intrusion attempt.

“Grey-box” variant:

  • The team has partial knowledge about the tested solution, provided by the Client.
  • The test simulates an attack carried out by a person with some knowledge of the system architecture.
  • This is an intermediate variant, characterized by less realism, but cheaper and faster than the “black-box” test.
obraz

“Black-box” variant:

  • The team does not receive any information from the Client about the tested system.
  • The scenario reflects the most likely course of an intruder attack from the outside.
  • Testers start their work by collecting information about the company and the system that are publicly available, and then gradually use it to try to find gaps in the tested solution.
  • This is the most time-consuming variant of the penetration test, which translates into the cost of the service.
  • A great advantage is the high degree of realism, unattainable with other test variants.

Bearing in mind the specificity of the company and the system being tested, we advise our Clients on the selection of the most optimal variant of the penetration test for the company.

We also help to determine other key parameters of the test, such as the date of its execution (within or outside the company’s working hours), as well as decide whether or not to inform employees about the planned simulated attack (gaining the opportunity to check their real reaction to the threat).
