External Network Penetration Test

Service Overview

Sec-1's External Network Penetration Test will take place from our location and will be delivered by skilled consultants. The service is designed to critically assess the external network surface against security best practice.

Sec-1 uses a blend of methodologies taken from industry best practice standards such as  the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM), the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) and the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST).

 Service Outcomes

Executive Summary - The opening section of the report provides, in plain English an executive summary overview of the entire assessment including recommendations to improve the security posture of the in scope environment.

Graphical Summary - Key findings are ranked, split into three impact categories and positioned in a graphical table according to the relative risk or likelihood of exploit.
