SureCloud provide an array of device assessment services, ranging from workstation and server build reviews, mobile device management and device policy configuration reviews, and off-the-shelf device configuration reviews. Each of these are tailored to specific organisation requirements, such as CIS standards, PCI DSS compliance, and any risks that the organisational has raised as part of a risk-registry programme.

The build reviews provide assurance for the current state of these devices, or for any prospective deployments as part of the security life-cycle, with an aim of identifying and highlighting the potential impact if an authorised or unauthorised user gains access. For example, a device that has been lost, stolen, or accessed by an authorised user with malicious intent (in the case of an insider attack) would all be scenarios where unauthorised access to locally stored data, and/or the ability to escalate privileges would pose a serious threat to an organisations security posture.

A full security audit is performed against the scoped device, with testing undertaken to identity areas where remediation is required, such as where hardening of the build process can be improved. Some of the areas where specific focus is spent includes where local storage of the device may be unencrypted, or where encryption has been implemented but may not meet the required standard for secure encryption technologies. Along with this there may be known security vulnerabilities that are present through missing security updates, or where further configuration is required to utilise the capabilities of the software.

Penetration testing is also undertaken against each of the devices within the security context of a ‘standard’ user account with the aim of identifying any opportunities for privilege escalation, that is can the standard user break out of the security restrictions imposed upon them to  perform unintended actions, for example unauthorised access to sensitive data, or the ability to perform system level tasks associated with high privilege administrator or root accounts.

SureCloud provide the output of these reviews with commentary on the current state of the systems, along with technical details on recreating any of the discovered issues and detailed information for remediating these issues going forward.
