Simulating a Cyberattack to Identify Strengths and Weaknesses

With reports of cyberattacks almost every day, it’s impossible to ignore hackers who are trying to get into networks wherever they can, with constantly evolving tools and techniques. That’s why it’s important to regularly assess your network security from their perspective using the same methods they do. Tyler’s pen test engagement shows how your network would handle various types of cyberattacks. Results provide you with critical findings relative to your security posture and help you prioritize mitigation and remediation effort.

  • Independent analysis improves findings

  • Certified ethical hackers deliver optimal results

  • Proven methodology improves security posture

  • Actionable insight helps you mitigate risks

Independent Analysis Improves Findings

Independent testing/separation of duties is an information security best practice because it removes bias and is often more effective at finding and exploiting vulnerabilities. Tyler’s penetration testers bring expertise to each engagement through specialized training in security testing disciplines. 

  • Prevent the potential for fraud or conflict of interest in your findings to ensure they provide value
  • Test your network with the latest techniques employed by hackers to better defend against current threats

Certified Ethical Hackers Deliver Optimal Results

Continuous education is a fundamental element of ensuring quality testing. Tyler’s pen testers maintain several professional credentials and bring highly skilled expertise to each unique engagement through continuous, specialized training.

  • Successful exploitation of vulnerabilities relies upon the skill set and expertise of the pen tester
  • 80% of all critical or high severity findings that Tyler reports in pen tests are found due to the manual techniques we employ

Proven Methodology Improves Security Posture

Determining appropriate scopes, defining effective methodologies, and establishing a practical blend of automated vs. manual testing are critical components of a successful pen test. At Tyler, we have more than a decade of experience tailoring these parameters to your specific environment.

  • Understanding the orchestration between what the automated tool reports and how to manually exploit findings is essential for meaningful results
  • Our methodology is continuously engineered to meet evolving best practices and is informed by several standardized approaches

Actionable Insight Helps You Mitigate Risks

Once we assess your system for vulnerabilities and conduct simulated attacks to determine how those vulnerabilities could be exploited, we develop a remediation strategy that will help you mitigate the risk of falling victim to legitimate cyber intruders.

  • Receive concise and applicable findings, along with effective remediation recommendations and an editable action plan for tracking remediation activities
  • Knowledgeable security experts are available to discuss findings and support you on follow-up issues
