Penetration Tests and PC Audits
Banks are well aware of the need to conduct regular penetration tests from both inside and outside your network.  We use a product from Internet Security Systems to probe your network. We can run an audit program over your network that will look at every PC and device attached to the network and collect important information about each device, such as attached hardware i.e. modems or what operating system they are running and the current level of that OS. Your auditors and examiners will love the reports we give you.
"Sounding Board" Services
Some of our customers want to use us as a "sounding board" for issues, questions and problems that arise.  For these customers, we offer a monthly package of 5 or 10 hours of time that the institution can use anyway they want.

Some institutions have asked us to go a little further and provide them a full vulnerability assessment of their operations. The vulnerability assessment  involves looking at your policies and procedures as well as you physical and logical security along with a penetration test and PC Audit.
