Penetration Assessment

The Axxera Penetration assessment service is an in-depth review of the customer’s gateway entry points and it’s components including: firewalls, routers, switches, web servers, database servers, and other application servers. A Axxera senior security consultant conducts a security assessment of the customer’s gateway architecture. The assessment includes the following:

  • An external penetration study (from the Axxera penetration / assessment facility)
  • An on-site assessment
  • A review of critical components (firewall, routers, switches, and application servers)
  • A review of current protective mechanisms (firewall rule sets, router access control lists, and authentication methodologies)
  • A review whether the existing security perimeter is well defined and affords adequate protection
