Covering the Assets of Credit Unions and Small Businesses Since 1997
Spider Networks is a leading network security consulting firm that has
been utilizing a variety of tools and Best Practice methodologies that can
protect your business internally and externally without hindering your
business processes. The greatest threat to a business today is internal
hacking from the company’s own employees. The days of having domain
controllers, e-mail servers and other data servers on the same subnet with
no access controls between workstations and server is gone. However,
internal security is often given a lower priority and put on the back burner
while the perimeter is being fortified.
Our network security consulting practice follows the recommendations of the National Institute of Standards and Technology for IT Risk Management Analysis. There is a method and structure to risk analysis, followed by a risk mitigation process. Risk mitigation includes a cost benefit analysis, mitigation options and a strategy for controlled implementation.
Our risk assessment process includes identification and evaluation of risks and risk impacts, and the recommendation of ways to reduce risk by implementing certain measures. In assessing risks for an IT system, the first step we take is to define the scope of the effort. In this step, the boundaries of the network are identified, along with the resources and the information that constitute the system. This then identified the scope of the risk assessment. Identifying risk for a network requires an understanding of the network’s processing environment
The analysis of the threat to a network identifies
the vulnerabilities associated with the system
environment. The goal is to develop a list of system
vulnerabilities that could be exploited by a potential
It should be noted that the types of vulnerabilities that exist usually vary depending on the nature of the network
Security controls encompass technical and non-technical methodologies. Technical controls are safeguards that are incorporated into network hardware, software, identification and authentication mechanisms, encryption methods and intrusion detection systems. Non-technical controls include security policies, policy and procedures as well as physical and environmental security

Network Penetration Testing
At Spider Networks, we have conducted numerous network penetration tests or pentests. A penetration test is a method used to evaluate the security of a network by simulating an attack from malicious outsiders and insiders. The process involves an active analysis of the system for any potential vulnerabilities that could result from poor or improper system configuration, both known and unknown hardware or software issues as well as operational weaknesses. This analysis is conducted from the standpoint of a potential hacker and can involve active exploitation of security vulnerabilities. Effective penetration tests will couple this information with an accurate assessment of the potential impacts to the business and produce a range of recommendations to reduce or eliminate these identified risks and areas of vulnerability.
Penetration tests are valuable for several reasons:
To determine the feasibility of a particular set of attack methods
Identifying high risk vulnerabilities to the network
Identifying network vulnerabilities that are difficult to detect with automated network software.
Assessing the magnitude of potential impacts of successful attacks
Testing the ability of network defenders to successfully detect and respond to any attacks
Provide evidence to support investments in network security.
At Spider Networks our network penetration
methodology is based on the recommendations of the
National Institute of Standard and Technology for IT
risk assessment which consists of conducting penetration
testing on information and data controls, computers,
servers and other network equipment, personnel security
awareness levels, fraud level, wireless devices, mobile
devices, physical security access controls, security
processes (both physical and logical) and physical
location security risks. This proven methodology
identified the risks and provides a road map on

This service is available only to existing clients with whom we are currently doing security consulting with, or whom we have already discussed this program with. You will need your verification code to request this service. Need a verification code? Please contact us
This service uses a variety of tools to provide a look at how secure your system really is, from an external point of view. We will do a series of both port scans and specific tests for vulnerabilities. Our tool box includes approximately 1,000 different vulnerabilities, including our Denial-of-Service tests.
For $100, you will receive an Adobe Acrobat PDF file that contains the detailed reports of our scans, as well as a brief summary of what issues were found and should be addressed. If we have performed an assessment previously, we will also compare our current findings to your last assessment.
Your IP address is displayed in the pop-up box. Please be sure that it corresponds with what you enter below or that you have verified the IP address of the system you wish to scan, prior to pressing submit.
