RA Security: Security Reinvented
The growing connectivity is raising software security threats more than ever. Data security is imperative for any business these days. Penetration testing is a set of activities to identify and exploit security vulnerabilities. It is different from functional security testing. The process involves a dynamic system analysis for any potential vulnerabilities, including poor or improper system configuration, hardware and software flaws, and operational weaknesses in the process or technical countermeasures. Ra Security Systems is a New Jersey-based cybersecurity company founded upon more than ten years of experience in IT infrastructure testing, information security consulting, and cybersecurity management. They offer a revolutionary method of Penetration Testing called the RASP. It has the power to take the guesswork out of understanding network security. The unique proprietary methodology will quickly test network security access across various devices and applications, rank each in order of effectiveness, and leave the user with a roadmap of what actions need to be taken to improve the network security.
RASP will complete a series of tests and scans to analyze the security weaknesses and identify critical vulnerability points within the network. It will highlight the vital weaknesses to ensure that network remediation efforts are prioritized and addressed appropriately and then assess whether malware can be installed and take control of devices or networks. Ra Security will gather a whole host of information from any environment faster than ever before through the unique rapid attack simulation method. Then it takes a deep dive into the system to test for common deficiencies such as inadequate firewall configuration, poor password management, and more. Once the test is done, a report card will be generated detailing how to score in each category and a guide to improving.
Ra Security’s unique proprietary methodology allows the team to quickly test network security access across various devices and applications, rank each in order of effectiveness. This includes a complete a series of tests and scans to analyze security weaknesses and identify critical vulnerability points within a network. As a result, the company provides businesses with a roadmap of exactly what actions need to take to improve network security.
Ra Security is one of the industry pioneers in intrusion detection and incident response and has been protecting its clients from hackers for a long time now. Founded in 1994 as InfoTech Associates, they pioneered data-driven business applications across wide area networks and the burgeoning Internet. Their active involvement in the security community became public in 1996 when a computer under their management was compromised. Their pioneering work in intrusion detection and incident handling complimented the FBI’s successful effort to apprehend, deport, and prosecute the attackers. The FBI considers the incident a landmark case, using it as a case study for their cybercrime training program. Since then, Ra Security Systems has consistently taken an innovative approach to information security to protect its customers against evolving threats in an increasingly networked business environment.
In addition to its vulnerability assessment, security event monitoring, and compliance management capabilities, Ra Security also offers other managed services. Their Endpoint Detection Response offers security configuration assessment at any scale. Whether their customers need to determine the hardness of an individual endpoint configuration or are looking to evaluate the entire enterprise, RaEDR makes security configuration testing easy. It has powerful vulnerability detection tools that allow the identification of even non-network software vulnerabilities and a dashboard that will enable customized views, from an enterprise overview to a detailed breakdown of the openness of a particular device. The query capabilities allow to create custom searches and pinpoint the exact information needed. Even though RaEDR is a managed service, customers will have access to the same powerful and easy-to-navigate tools to monitor, query, and do a total deep dive into data security.
Gideon Lenkey is the President and Co-founder of RA security. He specializes in IT infrastructure testing and cybersecurity management with nearly twenty years of experience in information security consulting. He has provided the FBI with advanced training and served as a consultant for foreign and domestic government agencies. Gideon regularly lectures, writes, and grants interviews on cyber security topics. Ra Security’s mission is to provide the utmost level of managed security and incident response to all of its clients so that they can focus on what matters most: Running the business.
