Have you done any evaluation of how secure you are?
Vulnerability assessment is the process of prioritizing, classifying and identifying vulnerability in networks and applications of an organization and provide them with necessary support like awareness of the risk, consequences if they are not properly managed. It is a requirement for many security schemes such as PCI DSS.
ValueMentor helps its client organization in assessing and reporting the known vulnerability.
Vulnerability Assessment Process
ValueMentor’s assessment process is done by highly qualified professionals, some of the methods which we follow are
The process is to define the internet protocol a network administrator wants to target on his network
Here a fingerprinting technique is used to detect the live host and their information which helps in determining what kind of OS is used.
The next step is port scanning, here the number of ports is assigned can be found and also the vulnerable port.
It recognizes every service of all port by sending similar signals to each port and its output is noted.
Based on the information given by the client each application is undergone vulnerability test and it is important that it is not affecting other applications.
The Vulnerabilities assessment process begins, and then active configuration probes are conducted and by the end a set of custom attacks on the network which will define.
This is the final stage of the vulnerability assessment process. Hear a detailed report is made with all methods used and how the reported vulnerabilities will be fixed is mentioned.
Benefits of Vulnerability Assessment
Identify the security exposure
Identify the existing risk
Our scanning method is entirely different from others. We conduct scanning by using automated tools and also manually. But our scanning is based on.
1. Network-based scanning: Used to identify possible network security attacks.
2. Host-based scan: servers, workstations or other network hosts vulnerabilities are identified.
3. Application scan: Testing is conducted to detect known software vulnerabilities and erroneous configuration in network or web applications.
4. Database scan: Identify the weak points in a database which results in malicious attacks.
5. Wireless network scan: Attacks which is focused on wireless network infrastructure
