Our vulnerability testing service includes:
External perimeter testing
Business growth, the adoption of new technology, and trends such as cloud computing, mean that every organization’s attack surface is always evolving. An Antares Vulnerability Assessment identifies all systems and applications that are visible to the internet and assesses these to check that they are suitability hardened to prevent access to your organization’s internal network.
Internal network testing
Recommended cybersecurity practice advises organizations to assume they have been compromised. This means that internal cybersecurity measures are as important as external ones. An internal vulnerability assessment identifies and classifies your organization’s internal assets and assesses their weaknesses to determine ease of compromise.
A series of tests is performed to identify vulnerabilities affecting your organization’s website. Identified problems include SQL and cross-site scripting problems, flaws in application logic and file inclusion errors.
