Thwarting Cyber Crooks with Testing as a Service

:
An innovative cyber security service from Arasti provides continuous testing of IT systems to identify security weakness which can then be tackled before they are exploited by an attacker over the internet or from within an organisation.

 

Harj Singh, Arasti CEO.

The Testing as a Service (TaaS) solution includes a security appliance that sits on the IT network and continuously tests systems for security vulnerabilities. The appliance is monitored by security experts from Aristi headquarters in Birmingham over a secure connection. Monthly or quarterly reports can be produced that detail any vulnerabilities found and enable organisations to fix problems at an early stage.

 

Annual IT Health Checks and penetration testing are a feature of many businesses and public sector organisations. Although important, with cybercrime becoming increasingly common and sophisticated, they are often not enough - and effectively useless for preventing  a cyber-attacks which can occur at any time.

 

Harj Singh, founder and CEO of Aristi, says:

"Think of the IT Health Check as a car's MoT.

 

"It is important but once done it does not mean that the vehicle remains safe for the next year. The day after it leaves the workshop it can develop a dangerous fault. The car needs maintenance throughout the year to keep it running and free from issues.

 

"In the same way an IT system can fall vulnerable to attack the day after the Health Check has been completed.

 

"Testing as a service offers ongoing maintenance so that problems are picked up quickly and can be resolved quickly.”

 

The idea came from working with businesses and finding that there was a gap in the market when it came to IT Health checks, and is designed to provide assurance to senior management, customers, regulators and insurers that cyber risks are being effectively managed - in addition to keeping personal data safe for GDPR compliance.
