Lumeta Edge assesses a network and its behavior from the outside looking in, doing the kind of reconnaissance that an outsider might when looking for weak points.
Somerset, NJ (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
Lumeta Corporation, the leader in network situational awareness, today announced the availability of its Lumeta Edge professional services package that will define potential network vulnerabilities on public-facing infrastructure and systems, allowing organizations to see their network from an external perspective – the way malicious hackers and predatory “bad actors” do.
Protecting a network from vulnerabilities begins with securing the entire network. In addition to an insider’s look, a view from the outside is also necessary to effectively protect systems against cyber attacks. The Lumeta Edge professional services offering is a quick and effective way to gain this outside perspective. It will identify vulnerabilities and systems visible to outside attackers that could put a network’s security at risk.
“An effective vulnerability management program must include activity to find unknown vulnerabilities that could be exploited,” said David Lennon, director of professional services at Lumeta. “Lumeta Edge assesses a network and its behavior from the outside looking in, doing the kind of reconnaissance that an outsider might when looking for weak points.”
Lumeta Edge includes the following services:
- Validate the external network address space – to understand the scope of IP address space actually in use, and the associated network topology
- Validate the external network edge – to understand the boundary of the network under management
- Conduct an endpoint census – to understand the presence of all Internet-facing devices on the network
- Conduct endpoint identification – to assess the nature of the devices on the ‘outside’ of the network (device type, OS, model)
- Identify network vulnerabilities – to support validation of network device security and policy compliance
At the conclusion of an engagement, clients will receive a summary of the scanning activities performed, an executive level analysis of the findings and outcomes, and a Structured Findings Report of the scanning results that can be fed to IT security management tools such as IP Address Management (IPAM) or a device Vulnerability Assessment (VA) for offline analysis and to increase the effectiveness of those tools.
