Test the real-world effectiveness of your security controls while achieving compliance and protecting your brand

Penetration Testing Company

Test the real-world effectiveness of your security controls while achieving compliance and protecting your brand. Cyberwarfare expert, NATO offensive Top Security Clearance and ex-NSA are main members of our core team. Our ethical hackers will find weaknesses in your infrastructure, exploit them, and report their findings.

Ethical Hacking

Ethical hacking and exploitation is a core expertise of our penetration testers and our red team members. Our experts performing these offensive security activities are behaving as intruders trying to get into the company and its network, servers, or workstations:

Your customers, partners, employees and executive teams expect strong cyber security standards regarding the data they share with you. It is your responsibility to uphold this trust and to be the protector of your firms’ reputation.

Our Cyber Resiliency Experts methodically attack your internal IT Systems, the same way a malicious hacker would. This process is implemented to uncover active security gaps within your network. Our tests are administered in a safe simulated attack environment, to discover your organizations potential compromised points and weak entry vectors, with minimum impact on your network.

LIFARS offers three levels of testing:

Vulnerability Testing

LIFARS offers two types of vulnerability testing: a vulnerability scan and a vulnerability assessment. Vulnerability scanning involves performing automated technical tests to uncover vulnerabilities and performing low to mild brute force attacks. Being performed without verification, this is the most basic type of test we offer, and we recommend this for organizations with lower security maturity or as initial test in a series of several tests. On the other hand, our vulnerability assessment also includes verification of vulnerabilities found as well as password spraying. Neither one of these tests includes exploitation of found vulnerabilities and breaching your systems. After completion of each type of test, a report with detailed descriptions of our findings and remediations is produced.

Penetration Testing

Sometimes it’s not enough to run automated tests and create a report. Today, hackers are increasingly more clever, creative and armed with powerful tools previously only available to Nation State Attackers. We continuously create new scenarios and methodologies for penetration testing enriched with knowledge of the latest IOCs and TTPs. Our team supplements this with OSINT, Dark Web and Deep Web research, advanced social engineering and ethical hacker manual techniques to provide insight into a risk that a vulnerability test may overlook. During penetration test the vulnerabilities and business logic flaws are exploited or combined to create attack vector and compromise the target organization. LIFARS offers external and internal network penetration tests as well as web application penetration tests.

Red Teaming

The process of using tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to emulate real-world threats to train and measure the effectiveness of the people, processes, and technology used to defend environments. The Red Team concept requires a different approach from a typical security test and relies heavily on well-defined TTPs, which are critical to successfully emulate a realistic threat or adversary. Red Team results exceed a typical list of penetration test vulnerabilities, provide a deeper understanding of how an organization would perform against an actual threat, and identify where security strengths and weaknesses exist. Our Red Team will perform hybrid attacks against authentication interfaces, exploit vulnerabilities that are currently being exploited in the wild and attack your Domain Controller and workstations. Also, your Web services, management services, database servers and network infrastructure will also be targeted. Your users will be attacked by social engineering and malware. In addition to all of that, our ethical hackers will try to delete traces of their activity and play hide and seek with your security team (The Blue Team). After completion of the exercise, the members of our Red Team will explain to you their methods and advise your security team on how to detect and mitigate such attacks in the future.

Experienced Penetration Testing Team

For Penetration Testing to be effective, the tools used in the semi-automated assessments need to be paired with subject matter experts that perform manual penetration testing engagements on a daily basis. Our Cyber Resiliency Team possesses unparalleled credentials with 2 decades of experience. Our team is comprised of world-class Offensive Security Certified Professionals (OSCP), GIAC Exploit Researchers and Advanced Penetration Testers (GXPN) and members of NATOs Cyber Offensive Unit, each being enriched with knowledge from our global Forensics practice revealing the latest in IOCs and TTPs that advanced attackers rely on for success.

Pinpoint True Risks

We implement a proprietary series of holistic and rigorous examinations through a combination of multiple automated testing tools and in-depth manual tests whether its Black Box, White Box or Gray Box. During an engagement we alert you to identified high-risk vulnerabilities to immediately address upon completion of the assignment, we deliver comprehensive reports with clearly defined and rated vulnerabilities with directions for mitigating the risk and preventing their exploitation. This actionable intelligence will serve as a starting point for elevating your organization’s security levels. We additionally offer comprehensive Advisory services to support the execution of the plan.

Custom Tailored Cyber Security Engagements

Custom Tailored Engagements

We start the process with an initial consultation to define your requirements, protocols and mission. Our team will use the provided information to create a detailed scope for the assessment and suggest additional areas that should be considered to achieve the security posture assurance against your advanced adversaries. We will perform the testing on designated days and times that you choose. We will keep you informed throughout the lifecycle of the engagement through our LIFARS Project Management Department.

We incorporate strict reviews in compliance with the following industry and penetration test frameworks:

  • Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM)
  • Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)
  • Penetration Testin Execution Standard (PTES)
  • NIST Special publication 800-115
  • NIST Special publication 800-30
  • HIPAA
  • PCI DSS
  • SOX
  • ISO 9001
  • BITS/FSTC
