VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT

Vulnerability assessments serve as a crucial means to uncover weaknesses in an IT environment. 9Tek's team of security experts conducts a comprehensive procedure in which an organization's systems, networks, and applications are thoroughly examined to pinpoint potential security vulnerabilities. The primary aim of a vulnerability assessment is to recognize and prioritize these vulnerabilities, enabling their mitigation or elimination.
Typically, this assessment leverages specialized tools and techniques, encompassing a combination of automated and manual testing methods. We strongly advise and emphasize the importance of conducting periodic assessments to detect new vulnerabilities and ensure the sustained security of systems and networks over time.
9Tek's Methodology for Conducting Vulnerability Assessments:
  • Planning.
  • Define the assessment's scope, assist in identifying the systems and networks to be evaluated, and collect information about the target environment.
  • Discovery.
  • Identify all assets within the assessment's scope, including hardware, software, and network configurations.
  • Analysis.
  • Examine the results of the vulnerability scans and categorize vulnerabilities based on their severity and potential impact.
  • Remediation.
  • Aid in implementing the recommendations provided in the report to address the identified vulnerabilities.

NETWORK ASSESSMENT

A network vulnerability assessment is a systematic procedure employed to detect, categorize, and rank vulnerabilities within a computer network. The objective of a network vulnerability assessment is to pinpoint security flaws that malicious actors could potentially exploit and to offer suggestions for mitigating or eradicating these vulnerabilities. In this context, we are evaluating the access policies, procedures, and practices to safeguard against unauthorized entry to both public and private networks and their associated resources.

HOST-BASED ASSESSMENT

A host-based vulnerability assessment involves a methodical examination of an organization’s security vulnerabilities, particularly concerning individual hosts and critical servers. This procedure is employed to detect, categorize, and rank vulnerabilities within a single computer or host. The primary objective of a host-based vulnerability assessment is to uncover security weaknesses that could potentially be leveraged by malicious entities and to offer suggestions for mitigating or eliminating these vulnerabilities

DATABASE ASSESSMENT

The 9Tek team is well-equipped to assist in the detection of configuration-related vulnerabilities within databases and to provide guidance to clients on the necessary adjustments needed to avert potential malicious activities and security breaches.

APPLICATION ASSESSMENT

The evaluation of web applications and their underlying source code for the purpose of uncovering security vulnerabilities and providing guidance to end users in addressing and mitigating these issues.
