To meet such customer demands, SPAN Infotech, has pioneered itself in providing security testing services for software. According to Pradeep Grama, Co-Founder & Managing Director, SPAN Infotech, “Competition in the market has made providers sharpen their arsenal in providing the best of the breed services to their customers and we provide the best in security services”.
SPAN was approached by one of the largest IT groups in the Nordic countries to help them in their initiative of ensuring application security and to attain PCI DSS Security Audit. It wanted a long-term partner to help them define and execute their security testing strategy for the entire portfolio of applications. SPAN defined the methodology for performing vulnerability assessment and penetration testing, adhering to OWASP ASVS guidelines with PCI-DSS focus. The company also provided detailed reports of vulnerabilities found during the application and network penetration tests, along with counter-measures. Now, the client is ready for PCI DSS audit by certified personnel. Their critical applications and network vulnerabilities were found and fixed and it is able to build a base line security policy for further development, based on the current vulnerability report.
