Protecting business critical IT

Marathon’s Firewall Security Testing Service is designed to ensure that Firewalls have been installed and configured with appropriate port security is in place. The service is also designed to minimise the risk of intrusion attempts or unauthorised access to internal IT systems.

The service is an important part of ‘Firewall Lifecycle management’ and is used to ratify security from the initial installation and throughout the lifetime of the device. The scope of the service is to conduct regular network perimeter device exploration and security audits.

Reports are delivered using secure emails and the information gathered by the service includes:

  • Which Firewall ports are open and why
  • A ports table (lists the port number and protocol, service name, and state)
  • Software version details (for vulnerability management)
  • Supported IP protocols
  • Reverse DNS names
  • Device types
  • MAC addresses
  • Script Scanning

The service scales from devices with a single IP address through to 10 IPs for larger implementations in a corporate environment.
