Vulnerability Management & Penetration Testing

Identify Vulnerabilities Before They Impact Operations

Cyberattackers scan for vulnerabilities that provide an open door into an organization’s network, systems, and applications. Penetration testing and vulnerability management are two critical cybersecurity methodologies that help organizations gain a more robust understanding of the strengths and limitations of their network environment and build a prioritized plan to resolve specific areas of weakness that cyberattacks can exploit.

MCP offers a variety of penetration testing and vulnerability management capabilities within the MCP SecureHalo family of cybersecurity services. We leverage a “find, fix, protect” approach that assesses your network security, reveals vulnerabilities, and recommends decisive actions to help remediate issues and close your cyber-exposure gap.

Measure the Strength of Your Security Controls and Uncover Weaknesses

Measure the Strength of Your Security Controls and Uncover Weaknesses

You have identified your critical assets and implemented protective measures to secure them, but how do you know if those measures are adequate? MCP’s solution measures the strength of your security controls and reveals weaknesses.

  • By safely and effectively exploiting vulnerabilities, an MCP penetration test provides value and visibility
  • Identify systems and critical assets exposed to cyberattackers, including internal, external, and wireless networks, as well as web applications and virtual infrastructure environments
  • Discover vulnerabilities not detected with automated network or application vulnerability scanning software
  • Understand the organization’s threat profile and what attackers can do with at-risk information
  • Meet security compliance standards, such as the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DDS), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)

Vulnerability Scanning Vs. Penetration Testing — Which Is Better?

While there are significant differences between a vulnerability assessment and a penetration test — both are critical elements of building a proactive cybersecurity management program. The essential difference is that vulnerability assessments uncover a wide range of possible vulnerabilities on the modern attack surface. In contrast, penetration testing demonstrates which vulnerabilities can be successfully exploited.

MCP leverages a highly-skilled, in-house team of penetration testers for our engagements. We bring an award-winning enterprise security assessment methodology, comprehensive vulnerability management products, and trained and experienced pen testers to every project. This combination will help you determine the right solution for your unique requirements and guide you with implementation, consulting, and managed security services.
