External Vulnerability & Penetration Testing

Using widely accepted tools, SMP scans all located and responding Hosts from the Network and Host Discovery phase to identify all known security vulnerabilities.

The External Penetration Testing analysis consists of actual testing of the vulnerabilities found during scanning to assess how far an intruder can penetrate the network. Mission critical applications operating through an organization’s firewall should be tested if vulnerabilities exist and patching or architectural changes do not significantly reduce exposure.
