What is a build and configuration security review?
An insecurely configured network could give attackers an easy route into your organisation. Commissioning a qualified ethical hacker to conduct a build or configuration review helps to reduce this risk by identifying security misconfiguration vulnerabilities across web and application servers, web frameworks, and devices such as routers and firewalls.
Redscan’s CREST-accredited penetration testing team has extensive experience of providing build and configuration review services to help identify and address weaknesses.
1. Data Collection
Our whitehat hackers use a combination of automated tools and manual processes to gather information about your network assets and how they are configured.
2. Configuration Analysis
Our build and configuration security team identify vulnerabilities by systematically analysing information collated across your network and comparing it to established baseline settings.
Once an assessment is complete, we deliver a formal report and debrief outlining key findings and a prioritised list of remedial actions to help address any identified risks and exposures.

Types of penetration test
Network infrastructure testing
Redscan rigorously investigates your network to identify and exploit a wide range of security vulnerabilities. This enables us to establish if assets such as data can be compromised, classify the risks posed to your overall cyber security, prioritise vulnerabilities to be addressed, and recommend actions to mitigate risks identified.
Unsecured wireless networks can enable attackers to enter your network and steal valuable data. Wireless penetration testing identifies vulnerabilities, quantifies the damage these could cause and determines how they should be remediated.
Application and API security review
Vulnerabilities contained within software are commonly exploited by cybercriminals and are easily introduced by under-pressure programmers. Redscan’s ethical hackers conduct automated and manual penetration tests to assess backend application logic and software and API source code.
Remote working assessment
If your organisation is embracing mass remote working for the first time, it’s important to ensure that it is doing so securely. Ensure your networks, applications and devices are protected and fully secured with a custom remote working security assessment.
Web application security testing
Web applications play a vital role in business success and are an attractive target for cybercriminals. Redscan’s ethical hacking services include website and web app penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities including SQL injection and cross-site scripting problems plus flaws in application logic and session management flows.
People continue to be one of the weakest links in an organisation’s cyber security. Redscan’s social engineering pen test service includes a range of email phishing engagements designed to assess the ability of your systems and personnel to detect and respond to a simulated attack exercise.
Mobile security testing
Mobile app usage is on the rise, with more and more companies enabling customers to conveniently access their services via tablets and smartphones. Redscan carries out in-depth mobile application assessments based on the latest development frameworks and security testing tools.
Firewall configuration review
Firewall rule sets can quickly become outdated. Redscan’s penetration testers can detect unsafe configurations and recommend changes to optimise security and throughput.
