Always Proactive

An external penetration test can be used to find external vulnerabilities in your network.  We wrote many of the programs and tests currently in use by both commercial and open source pen test tools.

We can offer one time, or monthly penetration testing, or offer it as part of a larger IT Audit or Risk Assessment.

 

External penetration testing is an integral part of an overall network vulnerability assessment, and will include

Automated scans with tests for:

  • Open ports and inappropriate services
  • Operating system vulnerabilities
  • Known web server vulnerabilities

Manual probes, which may include:

  • Verification of vulnerabilities detected
  • Use of white hat tools

This scanning incorporates tests that address more than 50,000 known vulnerabilities and weaknesses.  Tests will be configured to run in a non-destructive manner in order to prevent disruption of critical services.
