What is a Network Security Assessment?
SecQuest understands that sometimes businesses quickly need to know where their security exposures are, so appropriate corrective action can be taken. The QuickLook assessment does not require complex pre-engagement questionnaires or large amounts of scoping paperwork. We can quickly determine if your network environment is at risk due to security vulnerabilities or configuration errors, and provide you with the information you need to secure it. A compromise and subsequent release of financial, confidential or personal data could have a significant impact on your clients’ trust in your business with brand damage and share value sometimes being most affected.
Assessment Detail Our QuickLook assessment comprises the following phases;
A brief scoping session determines the devices and networks for assessment. Business critical devices can be excluded from any testing. Network foot printing and vulnerability scanning are performed to determine security exposures that exist within the target environment.
Manual and automated tests are performed on hosts with security vulnerabilities to gather information and escalate user privileges. Cyclic probe and attack methods are used. Regular client feedback is provided as the tests progress.
Following the technical testing phase we analyse the vulnerability data and produce a comprehensive report. A management summary provides a plain English overview of the target environment's security posture whilst technical sections contain details of our findings and recommendations to address any security issues discovered.
