Pentesting the Cadence Way

We work with you from the outset to ensure that we right-size the engagement and tailor our testing approach to meet your goals and satisfy all drivers for testing, whether that be board, compliance or governance driven.

Scoping experts

Getting the scope of an engagement correct is the difference between satisfying needs and missing the mark. We can advise you based on testing drivers to ensure that what you receive in the final deliverable meets the requirements and furthers your goals. We can also pull from the compliance side of the house to ensure that testing meets the needs of any compliance specific drivers.

Cadence Pentesters

We have a dedicated in-house team of pentesters, right here, on-shore and ready to meet your needs. They are all full-time pentesters with years of experience and multiple certifications to ensure that formal methodologies and processes are followed. This structure gives our pentests the legitimacy needed to satisfy any driver. Our testers are accessible if any questions arise about any findings or the report in general.

Cadence Pentesting Services

The securing of data is paramount in building and maintaining compliance and customer trust. In an age where data is distributed among various cloud providers and other third parties, the need for protecting that data has never been greater. To support you in your information security and risk quantification, we provide the the following testing services:

Network Testing

We provide a custom approach based on various scenarios to mirror the largest threats to your network. We will employ a combination of both industry standard and custom developed solutions to perform the necessary reconnaissance, enumeration and scanning, testing and validation of security threats. We employ the same tactics as the bad guys to correctly emulate an actual attack.

Social Engineering

Human nature is kind and typically helpful. This is a threat to security. We attempt to exploit these traits to assist you in quantifying the type of training needed to make your organization more “human secure.” This will give you a baseline to work from and subsequent testing can show improvement and progress as you iterate toward your goals.
