Identify Network Security Weaknesses
Data breaches cost American businesses millions of dollars each year and the number of malicious or criminal attacks is on the rise. Network security weaknesses can create an easy path for cyber attackers to gain access and compromise sensitive data and applications.
Most organizations don’t test their software until it has been created and nears the deployment phase. This practice is ineffective and contributes to higher software development costs. Identifying and correcting network vulnerabilities is critical in protecting any organization from harmful attacks and should be used as part of an ongoing strategy to support an organization’s software development lifecycle.
An IM Web Application Vulnerability Assessment can help organizations identify vulnerabilities and provides a recommended approach to remediate these vulnerabilities based on industry best practices.
As part of the assessement, certified professionals assume the role of an external attacker to attempt to exploit potential weaknesses. Comprehensive tests evaluate web applications source code against known exploitable vulnerabilities.
Recommendations for strengthening the source code to reduce the possibility of exploits by an attacker are provided based on the results.
Obtain true understanding of the network security gaps and vulnerabilities and how to enhance the organization’s security posture.
Ability to view the organization as it would be seen by a cyber attacker.
Identify which risks which should matter most to the organization.
Achieve compliance for the many regulations and standards that require vulnerability assessments.
Help to ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and assets.
Based on results, Ingram Micro’s Expert Service professionals will partner with you to deliver a quality web application vulnerability assessment to your customer. Comments that describe the rootcause of the source code weakness, intended to help educate programmers to write more secure code, are included.
The survey results includes analysis of:
- SQL injection
- Cross site scripting
- Cross site request forgery
- Buffer overflows
- Weak authentication
- Improper data sanitation
