Tailored Security Recommendations
We provide customized recommendations to mitigate identified vulnerabilities, ensuring that your enterprise platforms and vApps are not only compliant with current security standards but also prepared for future threats. This proactive approach helps prevent security incidents before they occur.
Improved Incident Response
By understanding the potential vulnerabilities and threats to your systems, your team can improve their incident response strategies. Our assessments help you develop faster and more effective responses to security incidents, minimizing potential damage and downtime.

Our Approach

Malleum’s approach to Enterprise Platforms & Virtual Application (vApp) Assessments is meticulously designed to deliver a realistic and comprehensive evaluation of your digital infrastructure’s security posture. Our methodology goes beyond automated tools to include deep manual testing and exploitation, providing a true reflection of the sophisticated tactics that threat actors employ. Here’s how we ensure a thorough assessment:

1. Reconnaissance and Intelligence Gathering

We begin our assessments with extensive reconnaissance to map out the digital landscape of your enterprise platforms and vApps. This phase involves identifying both internal and external resources, services, and technologies that the enterprise leverages, such as network services, hosts, and exposed information assets. By understanding the structure and entry points of your systems, we can simulate attacks more realistically and identify potential vulnerabilities that automated scans might miss.

2. Manual and Automated Vulnerability Scanning

Our team conducts a mix of manual and automated vulnerability scanning to uncover potential weaknesses within your enterprise’s network infrastructure, services, and applications. While automated tools help us quickly identify previously disclosed vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, our manual efforts are focused on uncovering deeper, more complex vulnerabilities. These might include issues in network segmentation, firewall configurations, authentication mechanisms, and other areas that require nuanced understanding and cannot be detected by automated solutions alone.

3. Manual Testing and Verification

We dive deeper into manual testing activities to explore and verify vulnerabilities that are often overlooked by automated tools. Our security experts simulate the activities of threat actors by testing for weaknesses in the context they would be exploited. This includes assessing how network controls, data handling, and security protocols stand up to sophisticated attack techniques, providing a realistic gauge of your system’s resilience.

4. Exploitation

With authorization, we move to exploit identified vulnerabilities to fully assess the potential impact on your enterprise. This phase is crucial for understanding how an actual exploitation could affect the exposure of sensitive information assets, the availability of resources, and the integrity of data managed by the enterprise. Our controlled exploitation mimics real-world attacks and helps identify how deep an attacker could penetrate your systems and the potential damage they could inflict.

5. Post-Exploitation Analysis

Following successful exploitation, we conduct post-exploitation analysis to determine what additional resources or sensitive assets could be accessed through the compromised systems. This step helps us understand the potential secondary attacks and further vulnerabilities that could be leveraged by attackers. We map out attack chains that could be used to deepen access into the environment, providing a comprehensive view of potential threat pathways.

6. Reporting and Strategic Recommendations

At the conclusion of our assessment, we compile our findings into a detailed report that outlines identified vulnerabilities, exploited paths, and the effectiveness of current defenses. We provide strategic recommendations for mitigating identified risks and enhancing your security posture. Our goal is to arm you with the knowledge and insights needed to fortify your systems against sophisticated cyber threats.
