Sirrus Corp. to Provide Penetration Test and Complete Vulnerability Assessment to Leading Healthcare Data Analytics Company

JOHNS CREEK, GA, May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sirrus Corp. (“Sirrus” or the “Company”) (OTC PINK: SRUP), an emerging cybersecurity solutions provider, is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a scope of services agreement to provide penetration test and vulnerability assessment (the “Agreement”) to a leading data analytics company in the healthcare sector (the “Client”).  Due to certain data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPPA”), the name and geographic location of the Client must remain confidential.  

Penetration testing is the practice of examining a computer system, network, or application to identify security vulnerabilities that a potential hacker could exploit to gain access to critical and confidential data.  To accomplish this, Sirrus engineers take a customized approach utilizing various manual and automated attack vectors similar to that of experienced hackers attempting to exploit system vulnerabilities.

The Company anticipates that the penetration testing will focus on the three main areas most commonly exploited by hackers: architectural weaknesses and configuration vulnerabilities, code-level and design-level software vulnerabilities, and social engineering vulnerabilities like email and phone based phishing scams.  Sirrus’s penetration testing and social engineering assessment methodology are aligned with NIST SP800-115 and the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES).

Following the completion of testing, Sirrus will prepare and present all key findings from assessment to the client, including a comprehensive Risk Ranked Assessment Report, Executive Summary Report, Technical Client Risk Report, and a Mitigation and Recommendations Report.

Sparrow Marcioni, Sirrus Corp. CEO, commented, “Penetration testing is at the very core of our security business and our expert team is among the very best at identifying security weaknesses in any system.  The fact that such a large technologically sophisticated healthcare data company that handles so many medical records has selected us to provide such a critically important service for them is a huge vote of confidence in support of our talent, expertise, and professionalism.  We look forward to completing this project on time and leveraging its success into additional potential projects.”

The Company is also currently in discussions with several other potential customers and anticipates completing one or more additional scope of services agreements to provide penetration testing in the near future.
