Vulnerability Scans

An efficient, comprehensive solution for ensuring the security of your servers

PEER 1 Vulnerability Scans are an efficient and comprehensive method of auditing your server security and resolving a broad range of commonplace and more subtle vulnerabilities.

Our vulnerability scans can also help your business meet compliance requirements for many important protocols, including the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Sarbanes-Oxley. Our system employs the software of an Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV), certified by the PCI Security Standards Council.

The system notifies you automatically on completion of a scan, along with a summary of the findings. The information is instantly accessible, anytime, anywhere, via your web browser; reports are provided for medium, high, critical and urgent vulnerabilities with explanations and suggested remedial actions.

The Scans include tests for backdoors and Trojans, CGI abuses and vulnerabilities in HTTP/FTP and buffer overflow.

The Scan database is updated regularly to reflect a list of the top 20 vulnerabilities as compiled by the FBI and SANS Institute, and helps towards the user to meet the requirements of the United States’ 2003 National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace.

Ad hoc consultations are available upon request, and are also available for a fee to non-subscribers.
