About 72% of the 855 data breaches world-wide analyzed last year by Verizon Communications Inc.'s forensic analysis unit were at companies with 100 or fewer employees. That's up from 63% of the 761 data breaches it analyzed in 2010. A survey last year of executives at 500 U.S. companies of varying sizes found that 76% had had a cybersecurity incident within the past 12 months resulting in the loss of money, data, intellectual property or the ability to conduct day-to-day business, according to the Computing Technology Industry Association. ACS can assess, analyse and advise on security issues associated with web applications, websites or e-commerce systems. Whether you are looking to understand your security risks compared to the OWASP Top 10, MITRE CVEs, or a comprehensive review of your mission critical applications, ACS can tailor our scope of verification for your needs. We have successfully helped multiple billion dollar organizations including many Fortune 50 companies

Online Security Portal - For Medium to Large Business Security
At ACS we provide a risk assessment of your web applications and can help maximize your security. Our verification services are not the traditional hacking. We focus on a multi-layered technique that produces the most cost-effective approach toward security identification and verification. Our application level verification service includes penetration testing, counterintelligence identification, and a patent pending patch management process.
Our strengths embody experienced staff and proprietary tools. While general COTS security testing application programs (e.g. IBM AppScan) are good at finding the proverbial low hanging fruit, our proprietary toolsets have been developed with security testing functions that go much further and are able to locate unknown 0-day risks. Many of the security tests employed by our penetration testing tool have been developed through research obtained through our counterintelligence capabilities. This combined implementation of counterintelligence and tool development has allowed our team to discover vulnerabilities for corporations that could not be identified without the extra efforts of the research developed into our algorithms.
ACS is staffed by professionals with first-class education and multiple years of experience in application development, software security, and risk management. Most of our security engineering personnel have worked for both public Government and private multinational institutions.
No security improvements can be made without the support of your staff. ACS will work with your internal security personnel, to help build skills within an organization, creating increased security awareness and reduce information systems security risk.
ACS has performed security risk assessment functions and operations with some of the largest Financial institutions, Insurance companies, Law enforcement, Medical, Legal, Payment Card Processors, and other industry verticals. Out team can help your business achieve compliance in a cost effective way, reduce risk to manageable levels, provide cost reductions, and improve the overall security posture in a digital world often subject to criminal and sophisticated attacks.
There is no precise standard to test security risks internally or externally, nor is there one precise method for securing each and every organization or application. Essential structural components often differ, however the goals and techniques for testing are the same. Briefly, deep risk analysis and penetration testing results in a similar pattern as follows:
1. Understand the security goals of the systems and of the client. (Client kick-off meeting)
2. Identification of architectural flaws in the system through requirements gathering and interviews with client staff (front line and management).
3. Research the system through analysis of the documentation, interviews conducted, defined established business goals and risks, and hierarchical security classifications of the system(s).
4. Identify important data that needs to be protected.
5. Modeling the attackers threats and goals.
6. Determining a hypothesis of the applications assets.
7. Perform security testing.
8. Analyze Data and build a thorough report of the findings.
