Methodology and Tools

Vulnerability Assessment vs Penetration Testing
Vulnerability assessments utilize assessment tools (vulnerability scanners) to identify weaknesses in a system or environment. As they highlight the technical risk, they usually do not qualify the business threat nor do they evaluate typical assault techniques. Hence, the main difference between a vulnerability assesment and a penetration test is that the vulnerability evaluation does not actively exploit the identified issues to determine the complete flaw or validate its existence which can result in inaccuracies into the report (false positives).
Regrettably, numerous organisations that perform penetration tests really “oversell” their solutions and just offer vulnerability assessments making use of scanning tools. Although the initial expense may be less, assault situations can be ignored which can result in a “down the road” safety breach. Full Spectrum Networks does not engage in these methods, and all identified security issues are reported with action by action directions on how exactly to reproduce the exploitable condition. Showing the genuine threat aesthetically provides value to administration whom may not be able to grasp a number of the complex technical principles included in this line of work, and features the urgency in repairing some problems.
Types of Pen Tests
Our pen testers can perform a variety of assessments that simulate assault assessment scenarios from people who have varying levels of understanding and access to your systems:
• External penetration test: Casual or concentrated intruders on the web with limited knowledge
• Internal penetration test: Disgruntled or reckless workers or contractors with genuine access to the enterprise network
