Penetration Testing

Test the Real-World Effectiveness of Your Security Controls While Achieving Compliance and Protecting Brand.

Your customers, partners, employees and executive teams expect strong cyber security standards regarding the data they share with you. If it is your responsibility to uphold this trust, then you are also an often over looked yet crucial protector of your firms’ reputation and bottom line. The complexity of managing your cyber defense is ever-increasing. The current cyber security landscape requires regular & continuous Penetration Testing and security reviews. These procedures have become a common practice among companies with high quality standards.

Experienced 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 veteran Penetration Testing team possesses unparalleled credentials and experience. Our team is comprised of Certified Ethical Hackers(CEH), Certified Hacking Instructors(CEI) 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.

Discover Invisible Risks/Threats Through A Hacker Mindset

It’s no longer 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. LIFARS constantly creates new scenarios and methodologies for penetration testing enriched with knowledge of the latest IOCs and TTPs. We supplement this with advanced social engineering and white hat hacker manual techniques to provide insight into risk that an ordinary penetration test overlooks.

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 the engagement we alert you to identified high risk vulnerabilities to immediately address upon completion of the engagement, 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 organizations security levels. We additionally offer Remediation and Advisory services to support the execution of the plan.

Tailored Engagements

Flexibility defines LIFARS and represents one of the pillars upon which we were established. An initial consultation defines your requirements, protocols and mission that our expert team will use to provide 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 test on designated days and times that you choose. Our highly experienced specialist will keep you informed throughout the lifecycle of the engagement through our LIFARS Project Management Team.

Deeper Insights

We do more than a scratch the surface run of the mill automated test. We go deeper by through manual surveillance with the elite LIFARS experts. Our Penetration Testing engagements are designed with the goal of delivering a complete assessment which helps your organization recognize the current gaps in security and help elevate the overall security posture. A run of the mill Penetration Test will not provide the assurance that you are adequately protecting data or your brand integrity. Through the combination of semi-automated tools, a proprietary manual methodology and social engineering, we typically identify vulnerabilities that others miss and can easily provide insight on exploitable elements concerning your firm including what resides in the Deep Dark Web community.
