Vestige Assessment Solutions
CyberSecurity Readiness – This is utilized to assess your Actual Threat Environment™ to make sure your organization is well-positioned so the basics are covered — it helps to eliminate the ‘low-hanging fruit’ that makes it easy for attackers to breach your system. Once implemented this discourages most attackers and they move on to easier targets.
Vulnerability Scanning – This involves running programs designed to assess computers, computer systems, networks or applications for weaknesses. It looks at the outside of an organization’s electronic perimeter to determine if it is secure. We then notify where there is an exposure to any known vulnerabilities.
External Penetration Testing | Attack & Penetration (A&P) – In an attempt to find gaps, Vestige performs white hat expert ethical hacking attempts to your IT environment to see if we can compromise the perimeter of the system from the outside, so that organizations can place more secure systems in place to prevent a real threat.
