Net Square undertakes vanilla Vulnerability and Penetration Testing Services with its unique model of “No Stone Left Unturned”. Our thoroughly researched methodologies and our knowledge of the latest attack vectors help us in providing our clients insights into the gaps in the security posture of their applications and network. In this time of limited skill set and high cost, we are able to provide high quality service at a cost that balances the business value with the associated security concerns. Our focus is the security of our client's network and applications.
Our "Deep-dive" methodology in VAPT enables us to find "holes" which most others will miss and which the bad guys will exploit and pose a threat to business. Net Square has more than 15 years of cutting-edge experience in information security services. Over the past decade, Net Square's methodology and practices have enabled it to provide services and value above and beyond the traditional scope of the engagement. And in the process, Net Square has got very important insights into building secure applications and network. The key insight is that automated tools and scanners are not and will not be able to detect all the security vulnerabilities and findings, which will ensure that the application/network is completely secure. The effectiveness and coverage of automated testing tools and scanners are less than 40% of the entire attack surface which has been established by a paper titled "Why Johnny Can't Pentest"
Net Square has come up with an approach called "No Stone Left Unturned". This approach involves not only doing black box and gray box testing of the application, but also doing a thorough vulnerability assessment of the Web Server, App server, database server, any middleware component and Operating system of the hardware on which the different components supporting the application is hosted.
NS has been involved with pioneering research in the area of web application penetration testing and assessment. The greatest threat and exposure on today's Internet facing IP addresses is from web servers and web based applications. Net Square's time-tested methodology and custom-built automated assessment tools yield unmatched quality and accuracy of web application penetration testing. Net Square has invested many years in developing publicly available and custom-built private labelled application-testing tools, which it uses in all its application testing activities.
Our thorough research methodology enables us to identify possible vulnerability that attackers might exploit. Net Square follow a "0” knowledge approach for Internet facing VA/PT activity. “0” knowledge approach - which implies no prior information supplied by the client other than the IP address - provides for an accurate and realistic assessment from the point of view of an Internet facing attacker. The zero-knowledge approach also provides for a test of the client's incident response handling procedures. The objective of any Internet facing VA/PT exercise is to determine risk and impact of vulnerabilities from the viewpoint of an unprivileged attacker from the Internet. The Analyst will try to gain privileged access into resources and hosts, and eventually escalate privileges to super users and administrators to assess the total extent of risk.
