Cyber Security

Prager Metis Technology puts a human behind the wheel. Many web application assessments are highly automated. They produce a high volume of false positives and overlook application behavior that an expert security analyst would find. Our findings are validated, and our consultants will work with your development staff to make sure that no stone is left unturned and that the results of your assessment are accurate.

Penetration Testing And Vulnerability Assessments

Prager Metis Technology's intelligence-led penetration testing employs the same tools, tactics, and procedures actively being used by cyber adversaries as they pertain to your business.  Except now they’re working for you.

The methodology in this approach involves intelligence collection, reconnaissance, exploitation, and attack. Information gathered during intelligence collection is used in conjunction with passive and active reconnaissance. Reconnaissance activity typically yields details about specific hardware, services, and software employed by the target organization. The next phase involves analyzing all accumulated information to develop comprehensive threat models. Threat models provide the foundation for how exploitation and post exploitation activities will be conducted.  If a vulnerability is identified and is able to be exploited, PragerMetis Technologies will attempt to gain additional access into the target network.  To minimize operational impact of testing, vetted tools, methodologies, and analyst experience were employed to prevent such degradation of denial of service to the target environment.

Cyber Security Risk Assessment

Have you ever wondered how you stack up to the numerous and voluminous cyber security standards and regulations?  Prager Metis Technology can deploy a state of the art automated Cyber Security Risk Assessment (CSRA) platform that can cross-walk and assess how your organization's risks, controls and operations compare to over 34 different standards and regulations.  From NIST, ISO to HIPPA, PCI, GDPR and NYS DFS, we have you covered. This holistic view enterprise-wide information security by business segment or entity is invaluable and unique to Prager Metis Technology.  

Reporting and Road Map to Success

The CSRA provides leadership the necessary reporting on controls, weaknesses and recommendations.  Metrics based dashboarding with benchmarking and comparative analysis point management to trends in their business and external threats. The CSRA  controls and evaluations are updated based on information data bases accumulated and learned from real world breaches.

Data Breach Services

Are you ready for your data breach?  It’s not a matter of if, but when you’ll be a victim of an attack. PragerMetis Technology has cost-effective end-to-end agnostic integrated solutions that help you be proactive in identifying and mitigating your potential cyber risk. Timely response is critical to recovery.  Our services include forensic and investigative activities, assessment and audit services, crisis team management and communications to executive management and board of directors. Data continues to show that the length of time the hackers have access to the data before they were stopped or mitigated is far too long. The faster the data breach can be identified and contained, the lower the costs. We work to contain and notify you immediately and use predictive analytics to assess and prepare for any oncoming potential attacks.

 

Monitoring Services

Prevention alone is no longer an effective security strategy. PragerMetis Technology’s security experts focus on detection in addition to prevention in order to keep your assets safe. We monitor your endpoints in real-time to identify threats, respond, isolate and contain attacks before data is exfiltrated, assets are further compromised, or irreversible damage is done. Our team’s approach to Endpoint Security Monitoring incorporates the full security lifecycle of Prevention, Detection and Incident Response.

PragerMetis Technology monitors your networks in real-time, using advanced behavioral analytics to proactively identify threats, discover and track all assets, scan for vulnerabilities, provides Intrusion Detection, and SIEM log monitoring.

 

Risk Advisory

Most companies want to get ahead of known and unknown risks.  Traditional risk management programs can often be reactive, slow and biased resulting in many risks going unmonitored and unmitigated until it is too late.  Prager Metis Technology has developed a line of sight into emerging risks and opportunities.  Our solution has the capability to capture management’s mindset from internal documentation and data.  It is optimized for modeling abstract, complex and systemic scenarios which enables discovery of unknown or not clearly defined issues and requirements.  That's unique and eye opening for our clients.
