Server security is a major issue for companies. Indeed, being a central element in the functioning of all the components of an information system (applications, network, infrastructure, employees, etc.), servers are often the prime targets of attacks.

How to secure an internal network?

Network security is a major challenge for companies. Indeed, the growing importance of IT assets, the interconnection of information systems and their exposure have increased the risks of attacks. At the same time, information (data) is produced, processed, exchanged and exploited by systems and on networks that may be vulnerable in all their components or configuration: servers, workstations, segmentation, Wi-Fi, user access, applications, etc.

APIs are everywhere. In most IT systems (mobile applications, web platforms, cloud infrastructures, etc.) and in all sectors of activity, these programming interfaces facilitate the exchange of data and their availability to a wide audience, whether customers, partners, or employees. APIs are also the driving force behind the development and growth of connected objects, as they form the basis of the communication channels of IoT systems.

Securing a website: risks, challenges and best practices

The security of websites (e-commerce websites, corporate websites, SaaS platforms and other web applications) is a major issue for companies. Being exposed to the public, these systems are naturally prime targets for attackers, who take advantage of numerous vulnerabilities in the features and other components: servers, data, third-party components, and other critical features such as authentication, session management or access control.

Logistics organisations are confronted to the challenge of relying on new digital solutions without compromising their security.

Facing a booming market, new technologies have indeed become a real performance lever. But their adoption brings increased cybersecurity risks with them. The concern is now to benefit from the advantages of these tools while protecting their information systems.

This is where a penetration test will help to strengthen the level of security, as it allows to verify the risk set by attackers on a given target. For a logistics company, it will assess the security of web solutions, control software, intelligent sensors, etc. against cyberattacks.

What are the priorities during a penetration test for a company in the logistics sector?

Here is an overview of cybersecurity issues we frequently encounter and that may be specific points of attention.

The security of web applications is a major issue for organisations. SaaS platforms, internal applications, or e-commerce websites, all these systems must be secured to counter the increasing number of attacks targeting all their functionalities and components: servers, APIs, authentication, sessions, access control, third-party components, etc.

Beyond the protection against attacks, security has also become a key factor and a differentiating asset in pre-sales processes, particularly in B2B.

pentest statistics most frequent vulnerabilities

We do pentests every day. (Well, 5 days a week.) Today we’re taking you behind the scenes: we’ve got a closer look at the penetration tests performed in 2020, to share with you some figures on the vulnerabilities found.

We have also identified the three most frequent vulnerabilities found during our pentests and give our insight on the presence of these flaws. Finally, we present some other observations from our penetration tests.

how to prevent email spoofing

Used for phishing and other social engineering attacks, email spoofing is terribly tricky. Well executed, it’s difficult to detect and misleads the recipient.

To counter it, there are technical solutions to put in place when you configure your mail servers. We will see the three essential elements to install to prevent email spoofing: SPF, DKIM and DMARC.
