Payment Card Industry

At Raxis, our top priority is providing exceptional PCI penetration testing services that comply with the stringent standards of PCI-DSS. We understand the importance of timely results, which is why we strive to be the fastest in the industry. However, we never compromise on the quality of our work. Our team of experts is dedicated to producing top-notch reports that identify vulnerabilities and offer recommendations for strengthening your cybersecurity defenses. You can trust Raxis to exceed your expectations and help you make a compelling case for increased security spending.

Our team has streamlined our sales process and implemented more efficient scheduling methods, resulting in a quick turnaround time without sacrificing accuracy. What sets us apart is our comprehensive approach to PCI pentesting – not only do we thoroughly test for vulnerabilities and provide an in-depth report, but we also include remediation testing to ensure any issues are properly resolved.

As part of our PCI penetration testing package, we also perform segmentation testing to demonstrate the separation between PCI in-scope and out-of-scope assets. This is an essential step in meeting PCI compliance.


Financial Sector

Multiple programs require or recommend penetration testing for the financial industry

Unfortunately it’s not just the banks that are being targeted. Recent data breach numbers indicate hackers are targeting the entire financial sector. It’s one of our favorite sectors because we can easy demonstrate value and make a strong impact. We’re here to help make sure the hackers move to an easier target than you.

With the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) now requiring annual penetration testing as of 2022, companies involved in financial activities are facing increased scrutiny to ensure their data is secure. This not only includes banks and lenders, but also businesses that provide services related to financial activities, such as mortgage brokers, collection agencies, and investment firms.

At Raxis, we specialize in providing penetration testing services for these industries, helping them meet regulatory requirements and protect their sensitive information. Our experienced team works with each client to conduct thorough assessments and provide detailed reports to help them improve their cybersecurity posture and mitigate potential risks.



Humanity and technology: We protect where they intersect

Here’s a scary truth no one wants to hear: Our health care organizations are vulnerable to catastrophic cyberattack. Even systems directly connected to patients are not beyond the reach of a determined hacker. At Raxis, we know this because we’ve hacked those very systems and exploited their weak points. We didn’t cause any problems, but we proved that the bad guys could.

Raxis often uncovers security vulnerabilities and configuration errors within medical related systems that surprise our customers. We have breached internal medical systems holding patient records, payment systems managing insurance and credit card data, and embedded systems that are critical for patient health monitoring. Whether you’re confident you’ve closed most of the security gaps, or if you have no idea where to start, a medical penetration test from Raxis will provide valuable information on where your security risks are so that you can remediate them.

HIPAA and Meaningful Use compliance is often the reason our medical customers contact us for security services. While it’s not required to use a third party for the penetration test, a third party can often help reveal hidden security vulnerabilities that you never knew existed. Adversaries are looking for PHI data as well as ways to disrupt operations, and a breach could result in a significant cost or health risks for patients.


Cyber Insurance

Meet requirements, save money, and reduce risk

Actuarial data is at the heart of the insurance industry and for good reason: Working with large sample populations, insurers can accurately determine the likelihood and severity of a covered event and set rates accordingly.

That’s why many cybersecurity insurance companies and underwriters are requiring penetration tests before writing policies. The security questionnaires they include may seem like check-the-box forms, however, the intention is to help organizations realize the need to identify their vulnerabilities and remediate to reduce risk.

One crude method of assessing risk is by comparing a company’s spending on cybersecurity to its total revenue, total IT expenditures, or some other benchmark. Though it would seem logical that companies who spend more money on cybersecurity are more prepared, that isn’t necessarily the case. With more than a decade of experience and thousands of pentests under our belts, the Raxis team has seen countless examples of companies over-investing in the wrong cybersecurity technology, leaving parts of their attack surfaces unprotected, and/or implementing counterproductive security policies (or not enforcing effective ones).

Different approaches to meet compliance standards

Raxis offers a range of penetration testing services, including black box, grey box, and white box testing. Black box testing simulates an attack from an external hacker, while grey box testing simulates an attack from an insider with some knowledge of the system. White box testing examines the system from an internal perspective, using full knowledge of the system’s workings. We will work with you to determine which type of testing is best suited for your compliance needs.

Black Box

No information is provided by the client: no IP addresses, no applications, or system descriptions. Although it’s the most realistic form of pentesting and used frequently on other tests, the black-box pentest is often not very useful for PCI pentesting.

Grey Box

The customer provides partial details of the in scope assets. In a grey-box test, typically we are provided an IP range to ensure we are testing the right resources, however nothing else is disclosed. This is common in PCI pentesting.

White Box

The customer provides full details of the network and applications deemed in scope. Normally this includes IP ranges and application descriptions in order to focus the testing on a particular area. This is common in PCI pentesting credit card applications.
