Security services overview

There’s no point creating a state-of-the-art website and not securing it properly. Security is an ever-evolving field and even when you have the results of penetration testing or security audits it’s hard to know where start with fixing the issues raised. This is where we can help since we are developers by nature; we are able to test your site and then assist in making it as secure as possible.

Security Audits

Security is not just about server settings, it’s important to understand all the factors that could lead to your website being vulnerable. These range from patches and software fixes to password choices and staff training. Before carrying out any work it’s key to audit fully and we can provide this service, and then help you understand the results and take the steps required.

Penetration Testing

A penetration test of your website is one crucial requirement of a security audit, and although we’re asked to perform penetration testing often, we always encourage clients to take a more holistic and thorough approach, with a full security audit as mentioned above. Remember also that a penetration test is effectively out of date as soon as it is completed.

Our Framework is regularly tested and we recommend that you put in place a regular routine of testing all aspects of website vulnerability. Where we differ from most penetration testers is in our ability to help advise on fixes, or even carry out the work for you. We won’t leave you wondering where to turn, we’ll adopt a holistic approach to ensure your data is as secure as it can be.

Social Engineering

Another important consideration is that any security audit should check an organization’s resilience to social engineering, as much as it tests for pure technical vulnerabilities. Your data is just as vulnerable to someone looking over your shoulder on a train, as it is to sophisticated hacking attempts.

Fixing Security-related Issues

Our core business is designing and building websites, so we are better placed than most to advise on practical steps to take. We can even carry out the work for you, and this is true whether we carry out the testing or you get a third party organisation to do this testing for you.

client success story

    Our legacy application was penetration tested by another company - Verasseti explained in plain English what their report actually meant and helped our Developers fix all of the issues

This well known Consumer Goods company relies on a legacy system for all of their complex pricing requirements.

Following a penetration test by another company, their development team were charged with resolving all of the issues identified. But they didn't know where to start.

Verasseti were asked to explain the findings in plain English, then work alongside their dev team to implement changes to address the vulnerabilities.

The project took just two weeks and the system passed a subsequant retest first time!
