Vulnerability Assessment Services

What is Vulnerability Assessment?

Vulnerability assessment, is a process that defines, identifies, and classifies the security holes (vulnerabilities) in a computer, network, or communications infrastructure.

Vulnerabilities that may exist across your systems and applications can create an easy path for cyber attackers to gain access to and exploit your environment. With dozens and even hundreds of applications and systems across your environment with access to the Internet, maintaining and updating system operating systems and applications to eliminate vulnerabilities is paramount - especially when those applications and systems are tied to sensitive customer, patient or cardholder information.

The NESECO Vulnerability Assessment service is designed to identify critical flaws in your network that an attacker could exploit. Our testing methodology is an iterative, multi-phase process by which we assess the security of your network and systems. We use commercial and publically available tools, as well as custom scripts and applications we have developed. Our testing may include firewalls, routers or other network infrastructure devices, intrusion detection and prevention systems, web servers, email systems, virtual private networking (VPN) systems, etc.

We use a combination of automated and manual testing. Automated tools can greatly assist in reducing work effort and costs associated with repetitive and time consuming tasks. Manual techniques and analysis also are performed in each step to achieve the greatest understanding of your environment. Manual validation of findings reduces false positives; manual vulnerability testing reduces false negatives. False positives on a report lead to wasted effort in remediation. False negatives can expose an organization to risk of intrusion.
