Network vulnerability analysis

What is Network Vulnerability Assessment?
A network vulnerability assessment is the process of checking and analyzing a computer network for possible security gaps and vulnerabilities. It is used by network administrators to assess the security architecture and the defense of a network against possible vulnerabilities and threats.
A network vulnerability assessment helps network administrators or network security personnel to assess the security strength of a particular network. The main objective of this assessment is to find vulnerabilities that affect security, privacy and security business affect the network.

A network vulnerability assessment is a broad process that includes tasks as follows:

- Security check

- Identify, quantify and prioritize network threats

- Router / WiFi password analysis

- Checking the network strength against network-based attacks such as:
        - Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)
        - Man-in-the-middle attack (MITM)
        - Network intervention

- Security analysis at device level (router, switch, computer)

- Search for known and potential threats and security vulnerabilities

When a network vulnerability check is performed, it serves as input to the network / information security policy and related security products. This is usually done through a combination of automated vulnerability scanning tools and technical assessment of security personnel.

After completing the assessment, a strategy will be proposed to mitigate and remedy the identified weaknesses.
