External Vulnerability Assessments Company New York
Based on our experience from past customers it is recommended to perform a full security analysis that will include Internal and external perimeters. The full analysis will provide a complete and current security posture of the organization.
An External audit will simulate an attacker coming from the Internet (see diagram). This penetration testing will include three main ways into a given system: (1) open services on servers. (2) Network devices such as routers, and Firewalls. (3) Find weakness within Web Application retrieving sensitive information by using SQL-injections and other methods. Within each method we search for human-errors in the design and/or implementation, and/or user miss-configurations that can pose potential weaknesses. These weaknesses can be later exploited to deface website, upload files, obtaining access to user’s mailbox and obtaining administrative rights.
An Internal audit will simulate and attacker that has a foot hold in the internal perimeter (see diagram). This penetration testing will include three main ways into a given system: (1) open services on servers and workstations. (2) Find and locate systems defaults, security updates and etc. (3) Find databases that may have sensitive information due to vulnerabilities, updates, miss-configuration and more.
