Certified Ethical Hackers (CEH) Help Fortify Cyber Security

June 17, 2009

BOCA RATON, Fla., June 17 /PRNewswire/ – Enterprise computer networks are under constant attack, at a cost of billions of dollars annually. One way to fight cybercrime is to fortify your cyber arsenal with Certified Ethical Hackers — as permanent staff or through an information security service provider such as SECNAP(R) Network Security Corporation.

Certified Ethical Hackers (CEH) attempt to penetrate enterprise security using the same methods as criminal hackers, with the objective of pinpointing vulnerabilities so that preventive measures can be implemented. With client authorization, Certified Ethical Hackers probe the target while remaining within legal limits.

SECNAP Network Security combines ethical hacking with IT security audits, external penetration testing, web application assessments, wireless audits, social engineering audits and other tools to offer a comprehensive security arsenal for the enterprise client. Mini-audits deploy some of these tools to perform the same service for smaller businesses, and a one-time security check-up benchmarks a client’s overall security program. Many services are currently available at special discounts to help businesses maintain their security programs despite recessionary budgets.

In addition to ethical hacker certification, the SECNAP security audit team leverages decades of industry experience in evaluating information security programs for clients worldwide. The team includes security experts who are certified as Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP), Information Security Managers (CISM) and Information Systems Auditors (CISA).

“Learning to think like hackers has enabled us to uncover vulnerabilities so that our clients’ risk of unauthorized network intrusion can be significantly reduced,” said Ray Artz, a senior security auditor for SECNAP and CEH himself. “The information we communicate back to our security software development team helps them stay well ahead of the ‘hack pack’ in terms of advanced security technology and tools.”

Training to become a CEH is available from EC-Council, which offers security professionals a well-rounded body of knowledge pertaining to security threats and counter-measures.
