Security Tools Evaluation


Bancsec understands that IT and Infosec are at odds in their primary missions.  IT companies and organizations have the primary business goal of function, with a secondary goal of performance.  Security may be considered a “necessary feature,” or may not even be considered at all.  When developed under this paradigm, systems may sometimes be "technically correct," but are often still wide open to business logic flaws.

When the primary goal is security, the resulting overhead can often serve to inhibit performance or even function.  Who hasn't been locked out or shut down due to security measures?

Who will guard the guards?  Bancsec is instrumental in identifying flaws and weaknesses in common security products and configurations - and demonstrating the ways that hackers - or malicious insiders - can exploit them.  Our experts are highly familiar with the features, functions, configuration, and reputation of over 250 of the most widely used security products in the realms of:
