Telspace Systems’ newly launched Health Check service combines various security tools and hands-on analysis to identify web application or network vulnerabilities - at more affordable rates.
According to the company’s CEO Dino Covotsos, this service is aimed at companies that may not have an extensive budget for a full-scale assessment.
“Our health checks are perfect for organisations that would like to improve the security of their websites or networks against potential threats, but are affected by budgetary constraints,” he says.
Telspace Systems offers two different types of assessments as part of its health check service, namely web application health checks and network infrastructure health checks.
The web application health checks cater for companies with smaller budgets, and are ideal for companies in need of security assessments, but without a full blackbox or whitebox application evaluation. The pricing structure is set and is the same irrespective of the size of the application.
This service reports vulnerabilities such as Sql injection, cross-site scripting, command injection, blind command injection, local file inclusions and arbitrary file reading, remote file inclusions, remote code injection / evaluation, CRLF / HTTP header injection / response splitting, open redirection, frame Injection, and many more.
The network infrastructure health check is an automated vulnerability assessment tool that is priced on a per-IP basis.
“This service is for companies that require managed vulnerability scanning to identify common vulnerabilities on their infrastructure on a month-to-month basis. It can, however, be done on a once off basis as well,” explains Covotsos.
The company’s automated software is a combination of toolsets to provide the best possible overview of a network from a vulnerability perspective.
Assessment deliverables include executive reports, technical reports, remediation reports, and network overview reports. PCI compliance reports can also be completed upon request.
“Although these health checks can assist companies with some peace of mind, it is important to note that they do not act as a replacement for a full-scale web application or network infrastructure assessment,” concludes Covotsos.
