We are pleased to offer a special price for our vulnerability assessment for a limited time (see Special Offers).
What is a vulnerability assessment?
Our vulnerability assessment is a semi-automated test that looks for weaknesses in the systems you expose to the outside world. Security vulnerabilities in software or misconfiguration of the operating system are examples of issues that can be used to gain access to your systems. Most software will regularly get fixed by the vendors through patches, but not necessarily installed or updated in time before attackers notice. Misconfiguration of security settings would remain undetected until exploited. We verify whether those issues have been addressed and the systems are up-to-date.
What is the difference to a penetration test?
Vulnerability assessments identify publicly known security weaknesses, like a misconfiguration of software or know vulnerabilities of operating systems. The penetration test goes one step further by also discovering unknown security issues in in-house developed software or problems of the IT architecture leading to security issues. The majority of these types of issues would not be detected during a fully automated test. Additionally, the penetration tester will not only verify the vulnerability but also try to exploit it to safely simulate a real hacker attack and in-depth analysis of its impact testing all security layers.
When should such an assessment be conducted?
Every organization with internet-facing systems should perform regular vulnerability assessments of their IT environment. Keep in mind that there is no secure system nowadays, as the cyber threats keep changing, nevertheless you don’t want the so-called script-kiddies to exploit publicly-known vulnerabilities that you were not aware of. We can help you identify where your IT’s weak spots are before others notice.
