Security Expertise + Passion for Quality Deliver Peace of Mind, Protect Revenue for Elsevier/SSRN
Social Science Research Network (SSRN), a division of Elsevier, asked ITX to help secure compliance with PCI requirements. Our team of testers incorporated a comprehensive assessment of the SSRN security environment. Through good old-fashioned ‘white hat’ hacking, we detected potential vulnerabilities, including instance tied to client revenue.
ITX’s Testing team, comprised of QA specialists, engineers/developers, and security analysts, performed a manual penetration test. No special technology applied, just thorough inquiry using well-established tools and techniques to pinpoint vulnerabilities and access points. The team then prepared a report summarizing our methodology and collaborated with the client on assessment, prioritization, and mitigation.
By prioritizing each threat to accelerate mitigation, we not only improved SSRN’s application security but also protected their revenue in the process.
- ITX’s team of ‘white hat’ hackers detected numerous potential threats, including one high-risk vulnerability. By prioritizing their mitigation, we not only improved SSRN’s security environment; we also helped them protect significant client revenue.
- ITX went the extra mile by incorporating a comprehensive threat assessment into a PCI-required compliance test – boosting client confidence in their system security and in ITX as a strategic partner.
