The solution identifies exposures such as missing patches, weak passwords, unauthorized changes and misconfigured privileges.
The SecPoint Penetrator is a vulnerability scanning device that simulates how a hacker could penetrate a given system (hence the term) and reports vulnerabilities, which should then help strengthen security measures against online outlaws, virtual villains, cyber criminals, techno terrorists, and other nefarious elements of the Worldwide Web at large.
The SecPoint Penetrator is a vulnerability scanner, vulnerability management of great significance because it's actually capable of simulating cyber attacks against systems so that they are better prepared for anything a hacker might have under his sleeve, so to speak. In essence, the Penetrator will scan your device, network, or database to ensure that it is vulnerability-free.
To be more specific, vulnerabilities are the holes and coding flaws that hackers exploit so that they could wreak havoc on any supposedly secure website or domain. Their malware programs will likelier gain access to a given network if they could identify vulnerabilities that the network owner neglected to find. Therefore, the Penetrator is an essential reporting device that records in XML, HTML, and PDF all those minor-to-critical vulnerabilities before these online outlaws do.
