Vulnerability Risk Assessment for Startups

Security testing is important for all organizations to help them understand present security posture, risk and threat exposure. It provides a starting point and vendor neutral security baseline that can be the foundation to build your security practice, allocate resources, close security gaps and align with regulations.

Our focus is to analyze complex products, solutions and networks for possible security vulnerabilities and create a report that contains a mitigation plan that will help your engineers mitigate all known and zero day vulnerabilities..

PreCog Security team leverages open source and commercial tools to discover potential vulnerabilities that could be exploited by automated bots and attackers in applications or networks. Depending on the specific task, language or system at hand, we utilize dynamic and static analysis tools and vulnerability scanners to identify and assess vulnerability bugs easily.

Our penetration testing and vulnerability scanning and assessment methodology relies upon following industry best practice standards:

PTES Testing Guide

The Penetration Testing Execution Standard document defines the methods and process of executing a network penetration test. The guideline is designed to provide a common language and scope for performing penetration testing, as well as detailed technical guidelines, to both businesses and security service providers. For additional information, please refer to:

OWASP Testing Guide

The Open Web Application Security Project’s Testing Guide document defines the industry best practice web application penetration testing methodology. The value in using this document as a reference on the possible prevalence, exploitability, impact and detectability of a particular class of vulnerabilities, helps us focus on finding the most prevalent and detectable vulnerabilities that could have the most significant security impact.
