External Vulnerability Assessment - EVA
Our External Vulnerability Assessment provides your organization with an understanding of the risks present on your systems with an Internet presence. External threats are those posed by external sources such as hackers, virus, and trojans to your systems that are accessible via the internet. Typical systems include firewalls, routers, VPN concentrators, web sites, email, and domain name servers. Testing will enumerate vulnerabilities and identify possible threats that the vulnerabilities pose. A vulnerability assessment does not attempt to exploit identified vulnerabilities.
External testing includes the same basic stages as the internal penetration testing does:
Passive and Active information gathering
Vulnerability identification and ranking
Threat modeling and exploitation attempts
Denial of service attacks
Brute force attacks
