The recent breach of corporate networks in one of the biggest gaming console companies, is evidence, that hackers are trying their best to infiltrate into corporate networks and steal all the information. The information that hackers generally look for will be financial information, customers’ information, etc.
This proves the vulnerability of corporate networks across the globe. But, there is a catch. These days there are companies such as Versar Inc that are providing anti-hacking services to their clients who not only stop hackers and malware from attacking a network but also can protect the network by checking the network for any loopholes or weak spots through which infiltration takes place. These services are called vulnerability assessment services.
Vulnerability assessment services include:
- Penetration testing services: Penetration testing is one of the infiltration techniques, which is used to check whether hackers or any malware as a matter of fact can enter into the system. This testing will help in determining the weak spots in the system.
- Wireless assessments services: Wireless assessment services are used to check whether the wireless communications system has a weak spot or not. Today’s corporate world cannot function properly without the implementation of wireless in its campuses. In this case, anyone with knowledge of hacking can easily hack wireless networks and crack the information.
- Applications security assessment services: Application security assessments services include assessing the applications such as web applications. The code and design of web applications is also checked about whether there is a possibility of a security breach to take place.
Vulnerability assessment services are provided by third party companies. Some of these service providers are leaders in the field of anti-hacking or ethical hacking services. For a secured network to exist without any danger and fear of information loss or network infiltration, vulnerability assessment services from these companies can be very helpful.
