Server Build Review

What is a server build review?

A server build review is essentially a white box assessment where the consultant is provided with high level privileges to find numerous security flaws that might otherwise be missed during a black box assessment.

Server build reviews are beneficial for businesses who require a thorough network assessment from the inside-out.

A server build review will benefit any business who hosts their servers and databases on premise or use cloud based virtual machines.

What are the benefits of a server build review?

Server build reviews help to ensure a server’s configuration and update policies are efficient and effective. By critically examining each build stage, potential improvements can be identified and implemented. This ultimately results in the server operating systems posture being greatly increased from a security perspective.

Benefits of conducting server build reviews include:

  • Protection from known threats
  • Attack surface reduction
  • Assurance that existing user will not be able to elevate their privilege levels

What is white box penetration testing?

White box vulnerability assessments are a type of security assessment where the tester has full knowledge of the system under test. This includes information such as source code, access to internal systems, and detailed documentation.

The goal of white box penetration testing is to identify as many vulnerabilities as possible. This is done by looking for weaknesses in the system that can be exploited. These weaknesses can be due to poor design, coding errors, or insecure configuration.

White box pen testing is often used to assess the security of web applications. They can also be used to assess the security of other types of systems, such as network infrastructure and software.

Aardwolf Security provides full-scale, comprehensive white box penetration testing services. Our elite team of certified security engineers utilize a combination of proprietary methodologies and cutting-edge tooling to identify vulnerabilities in a network before those with malicious intent do.

Our approach is based on over a decade of experience in the security industry, and our goal is simple: to help you secure your systems and data.

What is black box penetration testing?

As the name suggests, black box penetration testing is conducted without any prior knowledge of the system under test. This type of testing is usually performed by ethical hackers who simulate real-world attacks to find vulnerabilities in the system.

The goal of black box penetration testing is to find all possible vulnerabilities in the system so that they can be fixed before attackers can exploit them.

To conduct black box penetration testing, we use a variety of tools and techniques, such as network mapping, port scanning, and vulnerability scanning. We also use open source intelligence (OSINT) techniques to gather information about a system.

We also offer black box penetration testing services to help you secure your system. We have a team of experienced, ethical hackers who use the latest tools and techniques to find vulnerabilities in your system.

How long does it take to perform a server build review?

There are numerous factors that influence the scoping of a server build review, such as:

  • The number of hosts
  • How many users are on the system
  • The type of operating system

How much is a server build review?

A server build review cost is calculated by the number of days a penetration tester will take to fulfil the agreed scope. The number of days can be determined by filling out our penetration testing scoping form or messaging us through our contact form to arrange a scoping call with one of our senior penetration testers.

What are the deliverables following a server build review?

Following completion of a server build review, the security consultants will produce a custom report that highlights any issues identified, their risk levels and recommendations regarding how to remedy them.
