Cost-effective Vulnerability assessment
After the success of our $995 external penetration testing service, we at Atlas Inside Technology (AIT) realized that external security only forms a small part of an organization’s general security profile and that internal security is also of absolute importance. We therefore came up with a new reasonably priced offer for a service that remotely assess internal vulnerabilities at only $1495.
Our qualified staff has, over the years, acquired experience in performing IT review and testing services as well as working on security assessment of internal networks and systems in over one hundred financial institutions across the world.

UTMStack has been working hard with financial institutions in numerous parts of the world since 2016. During this time, it has gained an outstanding reputation as one of the main providers of consulting services for banks, hospitals, real estate, among others. That said, we are happy and able to provide you with a list of customers’ references should you ask for them. Our auditing personnel is made up of consummate professionals who have years of experience in the Healthcare, Banking, Transportation, real state and education industries.
One of the features that sets us apart from other companies is the way in which we organize our IT auditing teams. We have had the privilege of constructing teams that consist of personnel specialized in different areas of security. Our teams generally include experienced personnel in the management of complex network environments and personnel with a more traditional IT auditing experience, because they usually have a better insight into internal control systems and auditing practices.
During the assessment services, you will work with one of our experienced IT technical auditors, which gives our firm the ability to thoroughly analyze the findings in our review in conjunction with your internal IT personnel or with your external network services provider. Furthermore, we also filter false positives or errors stemming from our automatized tools before providing you with the final report; which puts us ahead of the many other service providing firms that have the tendency to force the burden of filtering all the false positives onto your organizations’ security personnel.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
This service is designed to assess external vulnerabilities and offers coverage of up to 100 IP (internet Protocol) addresses owned or controlled by your organization. In order to implement this service, you must assign it to the IP addresses on which you want the tests to be performed. These will be performed using our automated testing solutions toolkit.
The IT industry has not yet set standard terms to describe the specific characteristics of vulnerability assessment tests. We generally use the term non-exploitative assessment to refer to an assessment that only goes as far as detecting and discovering the vulnerabilities in your system without actively demonstrating the various ways in which those vulnerabilities may be exploited while the term exploitative assessment refers to an assessment that will, after discovering the vulnerabilities in your system, actively demonstrate how a noxious entity might exploited those vulnerabilities to harm your system or specific file archives.
We use tools that form part of the Kali Linux distribution such as Burp Suite, DirBuster, NMAP, SQLMap, and OWASP ZAP. The tool or tools that is selected to perform the task may vary and is suited to the organization’s respective security specialist or expert’s perception, since they are accurately assessed according to the environment in which they are going to be used. As a rule, we will only use subscription-based tools to guarantee the updating of files and consequently, ease the detection of recently arisen vulnerabilities.
The general recommended practice is that every organization should perform a vulnerability assessment test at least once a year or after any important changes in the organization’s operations or patch solutions. Our $1495 fee covers one single assessment at any time of your choosing. We also offer frequent testing intervals at a discounted price. An internal vulnerability assessment is one of the most effective means to verify the efficacy of any parch administrations.
After a careful evaluation of this service, we settled on this very fixed price for 3 main reasons, first, it was an effort to beat our competitors that offer the same services at extremely high prices, secondly, we believe that $1495 represents a clear and matching price for the service we provide and thirdly to make it affordable to our potential clienteles, especially taking into account the current rough economic climate. Please note that the pricing, though may seem low, does not at all affect the quality of our service.
We issue a formal report of all of our review services. This report will include a general description of the outcomes of the test, as well as any recommendations that may be made regarding the possible solutions. A copy of the complete results of the test will be attached to that report. In order to maintain a standard format we issue all our reports in electronic format (PDF) through our email. It usually takes us about a weeks’ time to publish the report having passed it through our internal quality control function, however, expedited issuance of reports is available upon advance request. You can feel free to contact us if you would like to receive a sample report of the external Vulnerability Assessment test.
The usual estimated time for a single assessment is generally one week prior to having signed a letter of commitment with our client. During that time we compile the necessary documents of the results. In the instance where the client needs an urgent test they can let us know so we can immediately tend to their needs.
After a vulnerability assessment is performed and the client fixes the vulnerabilities found, we can perform an additional VA to determine if the fixes applied resolved the vulnerabilities reported.
The VA will not only include details of critical vulnerabilities but also recommendations of best practices and a list of all tests performed.
