Lean Security: Securing Businesses with a Lean Approach
Robert Mueller, the former FBI Director once said, “There are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked and those that will be.” His words aptly define the threat landscape that today dominates the digital space. In such a scenario, what businesses need is the protection against all kinds of threats that can harm their systems and digital assets. Sydney-based Lean Security does the job exceptionally well adopting a lean approach to security.

“We work with the clients to identify the best approach for how to manage the gaps and we provide the services to ensure that gaps are filled,” adds Valeriy Rasskazov, Director & Principal Security Consultant, Lean Security. Lean Security offers a variety of security services to fill the security gaps. The company’s Web Application Firewall, Managed Website Defacement Monitoring Service, and other vulnerability assessment services ensure total security of organizations.
Lean Security implements its security solutions quickly and efficiently. While most of the security companies implement their solutions in a period of 6 to 12 months, Lean Security only takes a mere time of five days for the process.
Lean Security through its initiatives such as end-to-end mobile penetration testing and IoT penetration testing has emboldened its clients to optimize digitization without compromising on security. The company provides innovative control for its clients’ websites. As and when a client’s website is hacked and the webpage is updated with some malicious information on the page, the Lean Security team can detect it within minutes. Rasskazov believes that their innovative approach towards detecting and dealing with these attacks makes them stand out.
He is also of the view that it’s not the question of if the business is going to be attacked or not, it’s about when it will be attacked. Thus, Lean Security ensures that it adopts a continuous approach to security so that its clients are protected at all times. The company serves a large client base, which majorly consists of start-ups that generally rely on online channels to generate revenue. One of these start-up companies associated with Lean Security to deal with its security related concerns. The company needed independent assurance for their website’s security as it was developed by third party developers. Lean Security helped the start-up company by providing independent professional reports and also the solutions to fix the issues. Rasskazov summarizes it by saying, “There are use cases where we have worked with insurance companies and we have solved their compliance issues. Usually they have a requirement for penetration testing, security testing and that’s where we assist them.”
Lean Security also educates its clients about the significance of security in their organizations. Going further, the company intends to focus on proffering consulting services, which will help clients to obtain valuable information about the attacks.
