As cyber threats evolve, organisations often don’t have resources with the expertise or time to evaluate their defences in a holistic manner to maintain an effective IT security environment. In addition, new technology is regularly deployed to meet changing business requirements without assessing the impact it might have on information security, including process changes that affect business communication flow or security gaps in an IT environment.
The Aristi Testing As a Service (TaaS) can help your business to gain a holistic understanding of your information security posture and exposure to cyber risk through continued assessment of your IT infrastructure to identify security weaknesses.
Cyber-attacks are increasing and hurting organisations of all sizes and across all verticals which has created a need to rapidly assess the current information security posture. For sectors that are heavily regulated or organisations that have a mature security culture, annual IT Health Checks and Penetration testing is the norm. However, a 12-month gap between assessments provides huge opportunity for new vulnerabilities to be exposed and exploited by attackers. Annual testing is a critical element of a cyber strategy but often presents resource challenges to remediate the years’ worth of risks identified.
The Aristi TaaS provides continuous testing throughout the year, in manageable intervals customised to your specific needs and risk environment. Testing can be conducted on a monthly or quarterly basis to identify new vulnerabilities so you can remediate them before they are exploited. The service also helps to verify the effectiveness of previous remediation activity and patch management processes. TaaS provides a ‘critical friend’ to your IT security team, who can call upon our experts for advice and guidance throughout the engagement.
