Summit-Tek recognizes the importance of keeping criminals out of your computer systems and network. Malicious software and other cyber-attacks can cause companies’ their reputation and affect their bottom line. It doesn’t matter if a company was specifically targeted or used as a proxy for an attack on another system, the impact to companies can be devastating. In today’s environment, companies must keep vigilant by employing good security practices, monitoring system activities, and protecting sensitive data.

Complacency is typically the primary cause of data breaches, which are sometimes caused by malicious software, deliberate negligence, or cyber-attacks by criminals, a disgruntle employee or a competitor. Whether you know it or not, cyber-attacks are taking place daily. According to a study by Forbes, the average cost of a data breach in the United States in 2018 was $7.91 million.

A strong cyber security regiment plays an important role in maintaining the integrity and confidentiality of your company’s data and information. Summit-Tek has a team of cyber and network security specialists who can help detect, prevent and resolve these security threats. Our consultants can assist to assess, test and validate improvements and mitigations of your network based on an extensive range of experience in this field. Depending on the security needs and protocols of your firm, our professionals will identify potential issues or vulnerabilities within your network and use the latest tools and analytical skills to mitigate the issue and maintain system security.

Summit-Tek provides comprehensive cybersecurity consultant services from initial vulnerability and risk assessments to in-depth penetration testing against entire networks, critical systems, and web applications. Specific offerings include white or black-box testing:

  • Vulnerability Assessments
  • External and Internal Network Penetration Testing
  • Web Application Penetration Testing
  • Cloud Architecture Assessments
  • Physical Penetration Testing and Social Engineering
  • Wireless Security Assessments

Our consultants are certified engineers who perform thorough evaluations through a combination of industry-standard and custom toolsets to assess customer infrastructures using automated testing coupled with manual analysis. This allows us to quickly identify real vulnerabilities and remove false positives giving our clients an accurate view of their overall security posture.

Our penetration testing services follow a four-phase execution methodology consisting of reconnaissance, enumeration, exploitation, and escalation. The reconnaissance phase utilizes active and passive techniques to conduct intelligence gathering against all customer targets. During the enumeration phase all discovered network services, protocols, and endpoints will be identified and fingerprinted. Exploitation will then be attempted against potentially vulnerable systems to gain access to network resources. Escalation techniques will then be used to leverage compromised systems to pivot further within the network similar to a real-world threat.

All assessments adhere to a mix of formal industry standards and best practices as applicable or required to meet all objectives. These standards include the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), Center for Internet Security (CIS), and the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).

Summit-Tek’s cybersecurity professionals stay up-to-date with modern testing techniques consistent with the latest industry best practices and formal standards, such as NIST SP 800-115, MITRE ATT&CK, the OWASP Testing Guide, and applicable regulatory guidance. Where applicable, all identified vulnerabilities are mapped to these standards for remediation assistance and detailed knowledge to ensure our clients have all the information necessary to resolve deficiencies with ease.

To complete Summit-Tek’s cyber suite, we also offer consultation involving computer forensics on individual computers or network systems for internal investigations or as needed for litigation and as part of a company’s contingency plans for recovery and continuity of operation.

A company’s computer network is usually the core of how a company operates, yet it is often the most overlooked in terms of security, testing and maintenance. Let Summit-Tek keep your network safe and enable you the ability to concentrate on running your successful business.
