Uncover security breaches, improve IT security and build trust

PENTEST – Penetration tests from Lufthansa Industry Solutions

In an age of growing IT risks, in which cyberattacks have become day-to-day business for professional cyber criminals acting on an international scale, it’s essential that you protect your company’s digital assets. Offence is the best defence. By implementing offensive IT security measures, you can effectively identify vulnerabilities and protect sensitive data against unauthorized access. This will strengthen your customers’ trust in you and satisfying regulatory requirements.

As an experienced specialist in the field of IT security, we can provide comprehensive support through a variety of measures, including penetration testing (also known as a PENTEST), vulnerability scanning, cloud audits and red teaming. We offer our specialist expertise so that you can protect your IT infrastructure as effectively as possible.

Why you should strengthen your company’s IT security

Modern companies face a number of problems that make a robust IT infrastructure vital.

Many compliance requirements and wide-ranging industry guidelines mandate regular security assessments. Failure to meet these requirements raises the risk of penalties and damage to your company’s reputation. The NIS2 Directive is groundbreaking legislation in this area.

Without a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of your company’s security situation, effective risk management is impossible. It prevents you from taking key strategic decisions.

Without having appropriate safeguards in place, vulnerabilities and gaps in your cloud infrastructure can go undetected. This can lead to data protection violations and compliance issues, which can prevent your company from securing certifications.

Unfortunately, internal security breaches are a persistent threat. They often remain undiscovered for long periods and have the potential to cause considerable damage. This increases the risk of unauthorized access and your company’s data being compromised.

For the majority of customers, their partners’ IT security practices are now highly important – and becoming more important all the time. Shortcomings in this area can scare off potential customers straight away. As a result, your company could miss out on business opportunities.

Security breaches in your company’s digital assets also present a risk for your partners and service providers. By adopting a preventive approach and implementing security measures, you can prevent data losses and build trust.

We offer a series of effective measures that can help your company to strengthen its IT security. From testing services such as a PENTEST, vulnerability scanning and cloud audits to strategic measures like red teaming, you’re on the safe side with us.

A PENTEST is a targeted security test carried out by our experts. They aim to identify vulnerabilities in a computer system, application or IT infrastructure.

The goal of a PENTEST is to uncover potential security breaches that malicious hackers could exploit. Conducting a PENTEST can help you strengthen your security measures and minimize potential risks.

Potential PENTEST focuses

  • Web application
  • API
  • Mobile
  • Infrastructure
  • Client
  • Active directory
  • Cloud
  • IoT/OT

Vulnerability scans are an automated method of reviewing your assets for known weaknesses.

There are two forms of Vulnerability Scanning as a Service (VSaaS) from LHIND: black box scans and white box scans.

Possible vulnerability scans

  • Black box scan: This scan only examines exposed information (e.g. headers and banners) to draw conclusions as to known vulnerabilities. It does not require specific system login details or access rights.
  • White box scan: An effective white box vulnerability scan requires the company in question to provide system login data and access rights. The company also unlocks its firewalls and shares specific information about the system. This achieves a deeper, more meaningful examination.

In red teaming, we simulate a real cyberattack with a specific objective. This method integrates your company’s employees, processes and systems. Our team attempts to gain access to sensitive data, systems or resources. We aim to identify vulnerabilities in the security system and offer specific proposals for improvements.

Red teaming can be considered a broader, more overarching level of penetrating testing. It involves analyzing and testing entire systems and networks, while a PENTEST has a more specific approach and can form part of a red teaming strategy.

Interdisciplinary methods & techniques used in red teaming

  • Penetration tests
  • Open source intelligence
  • Social engineering
  • Physical security assessment

A cloud audit is a review of the cloud environment offered by a given provider. The main objective of this type of audit is to examine the extent to which your cloud infrastructure follows best practice and meets compliance requirements in relation to security.

Measures used in cloud audits

  • Review of cloud configurations, containers and their runtime environments
  • Analysis of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) scripts
  • Identification of vulnerabilities and misconfigurations
