Binary Fusion can Identify “Network Security” risks and vulnerabilities in the “External” Network
  • Perform data gathering and site survey verifying what is considered risk factor and what is not.
  • Conduct Scanning and probing:
    • Conduct network scans on approximately 10 external IP addresses and up to 1000 devices/hosts (i.e., 1000 Virtual devices, 150 Servers and 100 Network Routers and switches) residing in the company’s premise and internal network.
    • Identify vulnerabilities within:
      • Router and Switch Operating systems;
      • Windows Operating System
      • Linux Operating System
      • Specific processes services and applications;
      • Databases;
    • Determine best network security practices to detect and respond to scan activity.

Understand and analyze as well as classify each potential network security risk and vulnerability into the following categories:

  • Cosmetic – Some scanning software like Nessus or Retina tools report vulnerabilities when certain conditions exist, yet those conditions do not really have any associated risk and simply false positive conditions that doesn’t make sense to resolve..
  • Acceptable Risk – Some vulnerabilities present low risk because the risk of exploitation is low and the impact, if exploited, is low, etc. These vulnerabilities and the related risks can be “accepted” by management and receive this classification.
  • Mitigated Risk – Certain vulnerabilities exist, however other controls (e.g., Intrusion Prevention Systems, Application Firewalls) exist and would minimize the risk of an attack succeeding. These vulnerabilities would be classified as “mitigated”.
  • Critical Fix Needed – Vulnerabilities that are of significance and/or have impact require “remediation” and would be classified as such.

Additionally our network scanning tools like Nessus can show exact suggestions of what needs to be fixed for each specific vulnerability,, and with combination of our IT Network Security Consultants can provide a stepping ground in properly identifying associated risk factors. Sometimes certain suggestions provided by IT Network Security Vulnerability Assessment software won’t make any sense and it’s up to IT network security professional to identify what such suggested resolution means. For example does a sentence like this mean anything to you? “ The following crypto signature with kernel 0x1290ee was found to be corrupt resulting in possible vulnerability “ Sometimes level of criticality suggested by the software is not necessarily the right level, since after all it all depends on the company’s environment and what their infrastructure is being used for.
