Ely, England, 19 June 2012 – After a new and powerful malware known as ‘Flame’ was uncovered recently, organisations - more than ever - need to take advantage of ethical hacking in order to test their systems and protect themselves form cyberattacks.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “Getting networks and applications tested by an ethical hacker is the only sensible way for companies to establish the level of security of their systems. With the ever-increasing risk of external attacks to websites, IT outsourcing and the adoption of new technologies including virtualisation and cloud computing, organisations have to firstly, identify cyberthreats and secondly, put control measures in place to defend themselves from these.”
Routine ethical hacking, also known as penetration testing, is an essential component in any ISO27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS). Pen Testing can also help organisations to meet the requirements of the PCI DSS standard and comply with the Data protection Act (DPA).
IT Governance Ltd, a leading professional services company, offers fixed-price penetration testing packages which are designed to simplify security testing. Organisations can save £1000 if they book a Penetration Testing Standard Package or a Web Application Testing Package in June.
The security testing is conducted by a qualified ethical hacker guaranteeing quality, confidentiality and privacy.
Both the Penetration Testing Standard Package and the Web Application Testing Package include a comprehensive report indentifying vulnerabilities and recommended remedial activity. They are suitable for small companies with up to 20 externally facing IP addresses and up to four internal services running in a single organisation. One of the biggest benefits to organisations is that they can agree the scope of testing delivered for known and fixed benefits. The packages are available for a limited time only at the special price of just £1,950 each.
