Information technology is the backbone of most companies and hence IT risks and controls must be managed properly. SATTRIX Solutions’ professional consultants have experience working within a diverse range of industries and are experts in applying the proper IT controls framework to meet the IT auditing needs of your organization.

SATTRIX provides customers with security audits that include detailed reviews from a security perspective of your facilities, processes, policies, hardware, software, network and resources.

Prior to and during the audit, our experts work closely with your organization to develop a service plan and calendar. This includes engagement planning meetings and frequent client communications intended to produce an efficient and cost-effective audit while minimizing disruption of their daily routine.

Our IT consultants have developed an extensive knowledge base that provides our clients with industry best practices. We have conducted numerous audit engagements, from departmental audits that incorporate people, processes and technologies, to more formal SAS-70 and SOX audits.

Regardless of business requirement, budget and desire for high-security, we have the skills and experience to meet your needs for enterprise-class network security at a price you can afford.

Vulnerability Assessment .

SATTRIX’s vulnerability assessment services evaluate the strength of its clients' defenses against the attacks that are most likely to be used by actual attackers. We provide clients with actionable recommendations. All findings are rated based upon their risk, the probability of exploitation and the potential business impact. This allows clients to focus on addressing issues that matter the most. VA can be configured to run tests configuring compliance policy of standards like IT Technology Act, PCI DSS, ISO 27001 and HIPPA.

The security assessment is conducted to determine the degree to which information system security controls are correctly implemented, whether they are operating as intended, and whether they are producing the desired level of security. A vulnerability assessment is then conducted to determine the weaknesses inherent in the information systems that could be exploited leading to information system breach.

Penetration Testing

Time and again it has been established that organizations are forced to spend millions of dollars to recover from a security breach because of lost opportunities & remediation efforts.

In Penetration testing or Pen-Testing we conduct a series of activities, which help you identify and exploit security vulnerabilities. It gives you clear picture of the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the security measures that have been implemented.

It subjects systems to real life security tests. The benefit of penetration testing is to reach beyond a vulnerability scan test and discover different weaknesses and perform a much more detailed analysis. The organization opting for Penetration testing will get detailed information on the actual as well as exploitable security threats and identification of existing and potential vulnerabilities quickly and accurately.

Application code review/testing

With enterprises under attack from malicious sources, a superior code review is of paramount importance for maintaining competitiveness. Code review and code analysis enables your developers to identify, review & eliminate vulnerabilities before the application goes live and helps software purchasers identify flaws in the application before purchasing. In order to sustain in today’s highly competitive market you need to develop safer code which can boost productivity, reduce costs & protect your data.

A small coding error can result in a critical vulnerability resulting in compromising the security of an entire system or network. Most of the times, it is not a single error that triggers vulnerability but a sequence of errors that occur during the development cycle.

During application code reviews, our specialists work with your internal developers to improve the development process and deliver a more secure product. SATTRIX conducts detailed inspections of application source code and assesses the vulnerability of the tools and commercial applications used to create and run the front and back-end services. We have extensive experience reviewing applications developed in a variety of environments.

Risk Based Audit

Today in this global world risks are increasing in both quantity and complexity. There are risks in operations, processes, human relations and other areas which affect the overall output of an organization. Risk Management provides advice and assistance to identify, improve and manage risks to achieve compliance with Security Standards with cost effectiveness and efficiency.

In Risk Management risks are tabulated either through a survey, interaction among stakeholders or comparing with industry standards. Risks are then categorized, and graded as high, medium, low or assigned values on a scale of 1 to 10. Appropriate action is taken after aggregating and considering all factors mainly financial and practical.

SATTRIX proposes risk mitigation methods, and provides analysis for selecting controls and measuring control effectiveness.

It covers the requirements for a risk-based audit and the steps necessary before, during and after an audit in a cost effective manner.

SATTRIX helps organizations identify, assess and mitigate compliance related risk

What, precisely, is examined in a compliance audit will vary depending upon whether an organization is a public or private company, what kind of data it handles and if it transmits or stores sensitive financial data.
