Overview Of External Penetration Testing
The main difference between an External Penetration Test and a vulnerability assessment in that it exploits the vulnerabilities to determine what systems can be compromised. We mimic the actions of an attacker and attempt to exploit vulnerable systems to obtain confidential information compromise the network perimeter without the usual dangers.
This test examines external IT systems for any weakness that could be used by an attacker to disrupt the confidentiality, availability or integrity of the network, thereby allowing you to address each vulnerability found.
Our methodology follows industry best practice and incorporates guidelines from PTES & NIST SP800-115 and CREST.
We make use of our experience in penetration testing to uncover previously undisclosed vulnerabilities providing an unparalleled level of security assurance.
