Simply put, Digital4nx Group specializes in “Digital Autopsy’s” using proprietary methods, technology and tools to recover active and deleted information off computer systems and other electronic devices. Much like a human autopsy that is needed to confirm a person’s cause of death, a digital autopsy is needed to validate a legal theory.
Digital forensics identifies, collects, preserves, analyzes and produces data based off of a defensible process that complies with legal standards and passes muster in a court of law.
We define “Ethical hacking” Security assessments as a service where we attack a clients’ network and computer systems using real-world tools and techniques in order to find security weaknesses. Having an independent team of experts audit your security is a valuable tool that is guaranteed to uncover vulnerabilities and greatly increase your level of security.
The company is essentially hiring hackers that you can trust with real-world experience in reacting and resolving an incident response of a data breach to break into your network and show you how an attack would be perpetrated before a malicious attacker can perpetrate the same attack.
Much like a CFO who needs a CPA firm to audit their financials, an independent ethical hacking assessment from a firm like Digital4nx Group, Ltd. can provides valuable insight and guidance on maintaining a better security posture.
We find that companies generally hire us to perform “ethical hacking” for three reasons:
- They are reasonably confident in their network’s security posture and they want to validate they are as secure as they believe.
- They are concerned that their network is not as secure as it should be and believe that an ethicalhack will tell them where they should prioritize their security efforts.
- They use ethicalhacking as a mechanism to demonstrate to key stakeholders that their network is secure.
The goal of an ethical hack security exercise is not to reveal deficiencies in the performance of your IT team, but rather to support them. We often find that IT teams are pressured to make things easy-to-use and functional, maintain software updates and patches, and keep the users up and running. Our ethical hacking assessment aids the IT team, giving them a road-map for making their networks much more secure, identify the sensitive information which the organization maintains, and improve the best reasonable security measures for that organization.
