..60 percent of respondents do not believe they have adequate security for their wireless environment.

Vulnerabilities due to poorly configured or flawed wireless LAN technologies are not new. But the business-acceptance of wireless technologies still outstrips the level of attention paid to enforcing wireless security.

Capturing traffic more than a mile away.

Wireless attackers are often able to breach Wi-Fi networks located miles away from the comfort of their own car (also known as “war-driving”). When direct wireless attacks are unsuccessful, attackers may use decoy wireless access points to trick legitimate wireless users into revealing their login credentials. New encryption standards are rendered useless if weak passwords are used. And in some cases employees take it upon themselves to deploy insecurely configured wireless routers without approval from IT management.

Despite the increased public awareness of wireless security risks, there has never been a greater need to enforce strong wireless security standards.

Psicurity’s Wireless Network Vulnerability Assessment uses the techniques of wireless attackers to determine the potential vulnerabilities of your wireless network. Actively penetrating your wireless network helps create a strong business case for improving wireless security infrastructure and policy enforcement.

For customers who require the utmost in web application security, Psicurity provides Gray Box testing, which is a combination of external application testing and internal code review.


internal Network Vulnerability Assessment (iNVA

The lack of internal security management typically results in hundreds, if not thousands, of potential vulnerabilities, which require a concerted remediation effort by both management and technical staff. Psicurity's "exception reporting" methodology provides accurate and highly readable documentation, clearly identifying risks without excess technical detail.


Psicurity - Industry Compliance

One of the greatest challenges an at-risk organization must face is how to organize the people and processes necessary to continuously maintain compliance with industry best practices. Our unique approach to management consulting helps foster the organization-wide consensus necessary to implement an Information Security Management System, as prescribed by ISO.


external Network Vulnerability Assessment (eNVA

Psicurity’s external Network Vulnerability Assessment provides customers a picture of their network security from an external attackers perspective. Our "white hat" team of intrusion analysts examine externally networked systems "in the blind," and generate a Target Map of the network “attack surface.. Fulfills the requirement for regular penetration tests, as required by official compliance regulations, such as SOX.


Psicurity - Assessment Overview

Our documentation provides immediate summary material for management staff, including in-depth technical details, and a customized Solutions Guide to help your IT staff quickly and effectively mitigate risks.
