By assessing your network security, we can provide you with a comprehensive remediation strategy and an understanding of your overall risk.

Network Security FAQs:
What is the difference between a Network Vulnerability Assessment and a Network Penetration Test?
A vulnerability assessment (VA) is an automated way to gather data about issues on your network, such as missing patches or bad configurations. A penetration test almost always includes a VA to inform the testing. It uses the VA and other data obtained via reconnaissance to attempt to exploit any vulnerabilities identified and gain some level of unintended access to systems or data.
So while a VA will inform you on “how vulnerable you are” a penetration test will inform you as to whether those vulnerabilities can be exploited and if so what the impact is to your organization.
How can I tell a good Network Penetration Test from a bad one?
You really can’t, just in the same way you can’t really tell if a colonoscopy was a good one. The best way to ensure you have a “good” penetration test is to verify that the vendor has an independent attestation to the quality of their methodology and the individuals doing the testing.(e.g., CREST certification).
How do you scope a Network Penetration Test?
The scope of a penetration test should be determined using a risk based approach. What assets do you need to protect? From whom? Where do those assets reside (e.g., cloud, DMZ, external/public systems, internal network segments)? What laws/regulations apply (e.g., PCI-DSS). These basic questions will help frame the pen test scope.
