Security Inventory Service Bundles for Small Businesses

With Progent's Internal Network Security Inventory Scan, an engineer runs a system scan from a secure computer inside your firewall to uncover the risk to internal threats. The two security inventory packages are set up and run from a protected external site. The process is managed by an engineer who has earned top security accreditations and who generates a report that summarizes and interprets the information collected by the scan and proposes practical improvements where appropriate.

Stealth intrusion testing is an important component of any successful network security plan. Progentís security professionals can run thorough penetration checks without the knowledge of your company's internal network support staff.
