What happens during testing?
TAC Security External Vulnerability Assessments deploy remote scans and tests from our Secure Operations Center, probing web-facing hosts for over 100,000 potential vulnerabilities. Covering network devices, web servers, firewalls, hypervisors, databases, and operating systems, our automated and manual testing ensures a comprehensive evaluation.
Our security team meticulously confirms vulnerabilities in a non-intrusive manner during testing, preventing disruptions to critical services. Post-assessment, our experts deliver a concise report with prioritized actionable remediation steps to minimize your external attack surface.
How Testing Gets Done:
- Catalog all active ports/services on the network.
- Check for operating system and web server vulnerabilities.
- VoIP vulnerability testing.
- Malware testing.
- Check for external service misconfigurations.
- Confirm best practice configurations for services.
- Evaluate service-inherited attack vectors.
- Escalate compounding low-risk vulnerabilities.
- Verification of vulnerabilities detected.
Security testing provides a snapshot of your current security posture. For optimal results, consider monthly or quarterly testing, with a special emphasis after significant network changes to catch emerging security gaps. Compliance-regulated industries may necessitate annual assessments to ensure ongoing compliance.
