DDOS ATTACK STRESS TESTING.
Proactively stress-test your infrastructure with DDoS stress testing
Why DDoS Stress Testing?
By simulating a DDoS attack against select targets within your IT infrastructure, helps you prepare for actual attacks.
Evaluate the effectiveness of IT defenses
Evaluate whether your existing IT defenses can stop a DDoS attack.
Improve your IT security posture
Proactively fortify your IT infrastructure against DDoS attacks and test whether fortifications will protect your business.
Test IT staff preparedness to attacks
Find out how well your IT people would respond to a real DDoS attack in order to adequately prepare for real future attacks.
You think it could never happen to your business, until it does.

DDoS STRESS TESTING
DDoS Stress Testing is a service designed to assess an organization’s preparedness for various DDoS attack scenarios and flood magnitudes.
The controlled tests are carried out against your IT infrastructure, at a prescheduled time and with real-time online support.
The result is a comprehensive report indicating infrastructure weaknesses as well as recommendations for mitigation.
DDoS is a devastating network attack weapon that is both cheap and effective. Performing DDoS simulations will help you achieve the following:
Address infrastructure and misconfiguration issues before attacks happen.
Enhance incident response procedures.
Understand how to control your DDoS mitigation solution to be most effective.
Harden assets to be more resilient to DDoS attacks.
Help you evaluate a mitigation vendor's strengths and weaknesses.
Prevent panic when attacks do occur.
Penetration Testing is the process of testing the organization's environment (network, services and applications) for possible loopholes and vulnerabilities that can be used by criminals to harm your business.
Some attestation engagements, such as PCI DSS certification require regular penetration testing in order to achieve and maintain compliance.
Penetration Testing is required because it helps you determine the flaws related to hardware and software system design and operation, and quite importantly, personnel readiness.
Early identification helps protect the network. If the vulnerabilities aren't identified early, then they become an easy intrusion point for the attacker. It is important to comprehend how malicious hackers exploit systems and how deep they can reach.
It is the duty of system administrators and network security professionals to guard their infrastructure against exploits by knowing the enemy - seeking to use the same infrastructure for illegal activities.
INTERNAL VULNERABILITY SCANNING
Internal vulnerability scanning is a set of conscious actions aiming to define, identify, and classify the vulnerabilities in an organization's IT infrastructure, conducted from inside the network on all internal-facing hosts that are in scope of the company's PCI DSS assessment.
Internal vulnerability scanning is necessary for PCI DSS certification , which stipulates that:
Scanning is performed quarterly and after significant changes to your environment.
All “high risk” vulnerabilities are resolved in accordance with your vulnerability ranking.
Highest priority should be given to vulnerabilities with the highest risk.
The scans must be performed by qualified personnel.
EXTERNAL VULNERABILITY SCANNING ASV
External vulnerability scanning is a process designed to detect, identify and classify system weaknesses from outside your IT infrastructure on all external-facing hosts of your PCI DSS assessment scope.
External vulnerability scanning is required for compliance with PCI DSS requirement which calls for:
The scanning must performed via Approved Scanning Vendors (ASV) that are approved by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
The scanning is performed quarterly and/or after significant changes to the network or applications.
