Penetrator 7.0 provides total security to corporate users Security specialists SecPoint have released their most advanced penetration testing system yet for corporate IT clients... SecPoint's Penetrator 7.0 (http://www.secpoint.com/penetrator.html) guards against the most common attacks to large-scale businesses,including SQLinjection and CrossSite Scripting. SQLinjection relies on poor checking of the information returned from web page requests. By using specific characters, it's possible for SQLcommands to be passed back to the databasesrunning a website. The technique is popular becauseif a hacker can interrogate the databasesufficiently, he might be able to extract their customers' credit card numbers. In August, US court documents showed hackers stole 130 million credit and debit card numbers from Heartland Payment Systems through vulnerabilities that a penetration test could have identified. SecPoint CEOVictor Christiansenn says the first step anyone should take to secure their businessis to do a risk assessment to identify threats and vulnerabilities to their IT infrastructure. "With targeted attacks on the rise and web applications the focus of criminal gangs, testing your network with the Penetrator 7.0 will help any firm deal with the increasing threat of confidential data theft and ensure its security," he says. SecPoint's Penetrator 7.0 helps identify SQLinjection and CrossSite Scripting with its automatic crawl engine. Furthermore, it features 50 language dictionaries to crack WPA2networks and stops 'war-driving', where hackers try to take advantage of a company's open wireless network. For IT administrators on the move, there is the Portable Penetrator (http://www.secpoint.com/portable-penetrator.html) which comes pre-loaded on a laptop and offers vulnerability scanning and Wi-Fi Security Auditing of WEP,WPA and WPA2networks. It quickly delivers PDFreports with recommended solutions on how to solve each vulnerability when it is connected to a corporate server system. Both the Penetrator and portable Penetrator can scan multiple remote locations to deliver centralised reporting, so if a client has a head office in London and sub-offices in Hamburg and Dublin they can scan the internal networks in the sub offices and collect the completed reports in London without human interaction. SecPoint’s Online Penetrator also allows clients to subscribe to the Secpoint cloud server and scan their corporate IP addressesfor vulnerabilities remotely. Penetrator 7.0 adds: • • • •
Dell collaboration; Advanced SQLinjection, cross site scripting identification via crawling engine; Over 50 languagesfor Wi-Fi cracking/auditing; New scanning techniques to find Web Application Firewalls.
