Salt Lake City IT Company Adds Penetration Testing to Tech Support Services

WaziTech, a Salt Lake City based IT company, is now offering Penetration and Network Security Testing to the list of tech support services.

Salt Lake City, UT, July 21, 2011 --( Wazi Technical Solutions (WaziTech) is excited to announce that they have officially added Security Penetration Testing to their line-up of Technical Support services. Frans Van Rooyen, CIO of WaziTech, has a personal passion for computer security and ‘ethical hacking’; frequently attending security conventions in order to be well-informed of the latest malicious technology. With over 12 years of security experience, WaziTech is anxious to provide Salt Lake City area customers with this quantifiable security and penetration testing.

Information and network security is one area that many companies undervalue, overlook, or simply may not fully understand. From a business and operational perspective, security should be given the highest priority to an annual budget, because penetration testing helps safeguard an organization by: Identifying vulnerabilities and quantifying the impact and likelihood so that they can be managed proactively, preventing financial loss through fraudulent actions, preventing lost revenue due to unreliable business systems and processes, proving due diligence and compliance to industry regulators, customers and shareholders and protecting a brand by avoiding loss of consumer confidence and business reputation.

While a great deal of technical effort is applied during the testing and analysis, the real value of penetration testing is in the detailed report and debriefing. Ideally the report and debriefing should be broken into sections that are specifically targeted at an intended audience. Executives need the business risks and possible solutions clearly described with simple terms, while managers need a broad overview of the situation without getting lost in detail. Lastly, technical personnel need a list of vulnerabilities to address, with recommended solutions. In the absence of in-house technical personnel, Wazi Technical Solution’s Salt Lake City office will fill this need.

WaziTech’s penetration test can also help companies ensure PCI compliance. The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Requirements were established in December 2004, and apply to all members, merchants, and service providers that store, process or transmit cardholder data. As well as a requirement to comply with this standard, there is a requirement to independently prove verification.
