Looking for firewall security testing services?
Firewall penetration testing assesses the firewall from the internet. Instead of purely focusing on devices that are published through the firewall, the assessment focuses on the firewall itself. If the device is delivering IPSEC or SSLVPN services, these resources are assessed. Similarly, TCP and UDP packets are sent to the firewall and devices behind the firewall with non-standard flags being set. Through the responses that are elicited from these requests, Nettitude is able to enumerate the rules and policies that exist within the firewalling logic.
Most organisations have a perimeter firewall deployed between their internal systems and the Internet. This acts as the perimeter defence, filtering out unwanted inbound connections, as well as providing Virtual Private Network (VPN), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and content checking capabilities for the organisation.
