• Testing of the public web applications. 25 web apps were selected for this test. Business website, subscribers’ web portals and internal applications for employees.
• Testing of the network perimeter. 5 targets, 3000 IPs were selected for this including domain name servers (DNS), mail servers, firewalls, IPS etc.
A technical description of the detected system vulnerabilities with
associated severity level based on business impact was shared with the client. Also, actionable recommendations to eliminate the revealed security issues, as well as strategic measures to secure the company’s resources were also included.
