Information Security Services

Computer systems can be used to steal money, goods, software or corporate information. Due to this, businesses, governments and institutions all over the world are under increased pressure to upgrade their computer systems to be able to cope with online and system attacks. Failure to secure your corporate information systems could result in IT risks such as network system break down, website defacement, ransomware, viruses’ infection, hackers attack as well as unauthorized access to corporate confidential information among others.

Added to the above is the changing business landscape and ever pressing customer needs necessitated by the use of internet of things, mobile devices, social media platforms and cloud services which can challenge the overall security architecture of an organisation. All these have raised the profile of information and privacy risk and the need for effective information security management.

GloApps Security Practitioners help our clients’ be more secure, vigilant and resilient to evolving information security threats by offering a comprehensive cyber security consultancy, implementation and training services. Our security practitioners assist organizations to comply with internal governance rule and external regulatory requirements, ensuring that their network and critical IT assets are protected, and that their staffs is fully equipped to address external and internal threats.

ISO 27001 Consultancy Services

Information systems form an integral part in the operations of businesses in today’s world. Consequently, there is a variety of associated information security risks that may impact the organization’s ability to compete. The ISO 27001:2013 standard is the world’s leading standard adopted by organizations for the implementation of Information Security Management System (ISMS). The ISMS is a structured approach which purports to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability of an organization’s information assets.

ISO 27001 is a comprehensive and structured set of standards and guidelines for organizations. In addition to helping to ensure the business’ security risks are managed cost effectively, it also helps to establish, implement, operate, monitor, review, maintain, and promote the organization’s information security management system. This also gives partner organizations and customers greater confidence to present their business.

We provide a number of ISO 27001 Consultancy services, guiding you through the various stages of the Certification process. Our ISO 27001 certified implementers and auditors provide tested and proven methodology and extensive experience to ensure the effective and timely implementation of an Information Security Management System (ISMS) and the eventual certification to the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard. We also maintain deep domain expertise in cyber security and data protection (including certifications like ISO/IEC 27001 Lead Auditor, ISO 27001 Lead Implementer, CISSP, CISA and/or CRISC).

In addition, we provide a variety of ongoing Managed ISMS services to our successfully certified clients, often participating in Information Security Risk Assessments, supporting Internal ISMS Audits, external visits and other activities.

Penetration Testing Services

We leverage on our extensive knowledge, research, understanding and use of tools, techniques, standards, and our numerous assignments on Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Test (VAPT) for various industry verticals.

Our focus is to establish the domains of security weaknesses, defects or flaws within the organization’s information system, and promptly mitigate these vulnerabilities with appropriate countermeasures and controls in order to achieve an improved information security posture. We apply 3 recognized penetration testing methods:

  • Black Box testing (external testing)
  • White Box testing (internal testing)
  • Grey Box testing (combination of both above-mentioned types)

GloApps Security performs the following penetration test:

  • Network security testing
  • Internal penetration testing
  • External penetration testing
  • Web application security testing
  • Mobile Application testing
  • VPN testing
  • Client-side security testing
  • Remote access security testing
  • Social engineering testing
  • Physical security testing
  • Wireless Security testing

Software Assurance and Source Code Review Services

Vulnerabilities put your organization at risk. Thus, finding and remediating software vulnerabilities and weaknesses is a major step towards improving the security posture of your systems and applications, and your IT infrastructure in general. The basis of all IT systems and applications is source code. A security source code review assesses the security of an application by examining source code. A particular system or application may be working well from the point of view of functionality, and still contain serious security weaknesses. If the conditions in which the system or application are used are such that a weakness can be exploited, it gives rise to a vulnerability. When attackers become aware of such a vulnerability, they may easily exploit it to attack the system or application, or gain access to networks and systems that are connected.

GloApps’ Security software assurance and code review methodology assesses the people, the processes, and the technologies in each application.  By evaluating each layer of the application, the development process, and the developers themselves, our security team can identify critical flaws, determine the root cause of such flaws, and construct cost-effective recommendations for remediation.

We will first examine the system or application, its context, and potential threats, followed by scoping based on a threat model. The central part of the code review is the actual examination of the source code. This step is followed by reporting and advice to conclude the code review.

Network Security Assessment

Failing to conduct security assessments is one major mistake that organizations have to avoid. Network Security should be a top concern for all organizations and security assessments should be conducted regularly. The purpose of a Network Security Assessment is to find vulnerabilities that could constitute potential avenues through which security could be compromised, thus informing the steps to adopt to prevent harm to business operations, or the leakage of sensitive information. Vulnerabilities can come in various forms and are constantly changing with new technology, viruses, and applications; but they can be categorized into three categories: external, internal, and social.

Our network security services focus on the network layer of our clients’ information system. We review and test the network and security control architecture. The assessment is conducted using globally best practice standards/methodologies – methodologies based on successful combinations of technical experience, professional security analysis tools, and knowledge of hacking techniques.

Our services provide many benefits to clients including:

  • Helping you to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities present in network devices, such as firewalls, routers and switches as well as the core servers in the environment running Windows, Linux or UNIX operating systems.
  • Give a snapshot of your current network infrastructure security posture (which provides a baseline from which to validate compliance (or non-compliance) to corporate and regulatory security requirements, as well as a roadmap for future security initiatives).
  • Discover any external or internal entry points.
  • Identify if a combination of lower-risk vulnerabilities could be exploited in a particular sequence to create a high-risk weakness.
  • Identify security vulnerabilities in application, file, and database servers.
  • Audit and measure the size of potential impacts of successful attacks both inside and from outside of the company.
  • Test the viability of network defenders to detect and respond to attacks.
  • Provide evidence to support increased IT investments or network security.
