With this "Vulnerability Extermination" service we find security defects in banking, commerce, business, mobile, virtualization, security and other software that you develop or use before anyone else finds them.
Some of our most demanding customers hire us for finding critical vulnerabilities in products built by security-knowledgeable people, reviewed with best automated tools and analyzed by other experts.
And they like what we find.
In a simulation of a real "Advanced Persistent Threat" attack against your information system, we become your friendly attacker and try to penetrate into the most
critical parts of your networks, databases, services and applications in a controlled and managed fashion.
A test like this is the only way to see how well you're really prepared for a targeted attack.
We help you reach informed security-related decisions in application development, when setting up online services and protecting your IT infrastructure.
"We routinely engage ACROS Security when we need a security review of our most popular products."
(CSO at global software vendor with multi-billion revenue)
"We've been leveraging ACROS to perform pentests on most of our acquisitions and we've been very happy with their services."
(Project contact at leading global online company with hundreds of millions of registered users)
It has always been our strategy not to specialize in any particular technology. We're constantly surprising our customers with security defects in desktop or mobile applications, on any operating system, in office devices, network equipment and appliances, complex web applications and online banking systems, anywhere from smartcard applets and web applications to virtualization engines and language interpreters.
Many of the world's largest software vendors have fixed vulnerabilities we reported to them and thanked us for helping them keep their users secure.
