Yes, you can beat hackers at their own game.

The rate of cyber attacks is increasing, and hackers are only becoming more sophisticated. Imagine being completely locked out of your devices and unable to access any company data. What will that cost your business in a day, week, or month? 

To quote one of the greats, “For what one has to learn to do, we learn by doing.(Aristotle)

Businesses can identify and test exploitable vulnerabilities through pen testing, a process also referred to as ethical hacking, whereby a member of your IT team or a third-party provider, acts as a hacker and attempts to find ways into your system, network, and applications. Pen tests are a key component in taking a proactive approach to cybersecurity and are required for SOC 2, HIPAA, SEC, and PCI DSS compliance.

Charles IT can help proactively safeguard your business with pen testing management. We’ll help you identify hackable areas within your network and IT infrastructure, and explain all the areas that need to be addressed as we review the resulting reports together.

But wait, there’s more! We’ll collaborate with you and your team to create a long-term plan designed to keep your systems healthy and out of the hands of hackers.
