WHAT IS AN EXTERNAL NETWORK ASSESSMENT?
External security assessments focus on the security of your systems and services which are publicly facing and internet accessible. These systems can present a potential access point into your internal network and also may form the online face of your company. Ensuring their security from the latest threats is therefore of critical importance to any organisation.
WHY CONDUCT AN EXTERNAL NETWORK ASSESSMENT?
External Infrastructure can be the subject of a large number of automated and manual attacks, targeting any services which are configured to be publicly accessible.
Remote authentication services could be subject to brute force password guessing attacks and unpatched systems could be compromised. There are a variety of ways which your External assets may come under attack and so ensuring a robust security posture is of upmost importance.
As part of our approach, our Penetration Testers use a combination of the most effective automated tools and manual exploitation techniques to identify vulnerabilities across your external estate. Our extensive reports provide a thorough assessment of each vulnerability and provide business context alongside each finding.
This is supplemented by technical and non-technical descriptions including evidence of exploitation to assist in prompt remediation activities and provide a thorough understanding of each issue.
An External Network Assessment will allow your organisation to:
- Receive assurance around your organisation’s publicly facing systems and services
- Understand each risk which may be present within your current implementation
- Make ongoing improvements to your external security via specialist support, advice and consultancy.
- Gain access to a dedicated team of specialist CREST Registered penetration testers who use the latest tools and techniques to accurately assess and identify emerging threats
