Tell us about the inception story of Ownux Infosec and the benchmarks it has set in the industry thus far
Ownux Infosec was founded in May 2020 with the goal of providing best-in-class Vulner ability Assessment and Penetration Testing services. Ownux is an Information Security consultancy firm that specializes in Penetration Testing of all channels that classify various security areas of concern within an enterprise. We are focused on Application Security, but it does not stop there. We also analyze the configurations of applications, servers, network and security appliances. We have a strong process that adheres to the latest industry standards.
Could you give a brief account of the company's Web Application Penetration Testing engagements?
Ownux delivers all penetration testing engagements following a tried-and-true process. To standardize management practices, we employ a simplified version of the PMBOK concept. We comprehend the entire application, do threat modeling of the application, complete the assessment, conduct 2 reviews and then the reports are delivered. Further to conduct threat modeling we use a mindmap that give the analyst clear idea about the application flow and where majority risk is.
Could you elaborate on the latest technologies adopted by the company that helps in delivering penetration testing engagements?
We leverage defect dojo to manage our engagements, as well as an inhouse report generating tool with 4000+ Vulnerability database, which enables Ownux to deliver reports 20% faster and with quality, allowing our analysts to focus more on the assessment. We employ a combination of commercial and open source software to automate the assessment. With right process, we are able to achieve 47% efficiency and quality than the traditional pentest.
Tell us about a recent challenging case study that demonstrates the success of the company's solutions that were deployed to draw positive outcomes.
We worked for a Denmark based FinTech company, where we conducted pentesting on one of their web applications and discovered critical severity issues that their other vendor failed to discover. This application eventually got deployed on the American Stock exchange. We also worked for one of the largest banks in America and they recently developed an application on Firebase. According to our findings, they were leaking their entire database, and an attacker could take control of their entire database. These organizations were able to avoid real-world threats and successfully deploy their applications. We are pleased and take pride in serving amazing customers around the world and creating a significant impact.
What are the future plans of Ownux Infosec?How does it plan to execute them?
We want to make the entire pentesting process seamless,cost-effective and simple to implement in any industry. To accomplish this, we are continuously learning and improvising our process.
