Core Impact

Core Impact is the most comprehensive solution for assessing and testing security vulnerabilities throughout your organization. Core Impact is the only solution that empowers you to replicate attacks that pivot across systems, devices, and applications, revealing how chains of exploitable vulnerabilities open paths to your organization’s mission-critical systems and data.

Core Impact gives you visibility into the effectiveness of your endpoint defenses and reveals where your most pressing risks exist across your network. This enables you to evaluate your organization’s ability to detect, prevent, and respond to real-world, multi-staged threats.

Multi-vector Testing Capabilities Across Network, Web, and Mobile

Empowers replicated attacks across all systems, reveals the exploited vulnerability, and allows you to remediate the risk immediately.

Test More Common Vulnerability Exploits than the Competition

Through pen-testing capabilities you are able to test all workstations for various vulnerabilities, in addition to gauging the effectiveness of anti-virus, HIPS, and other perimeter defenses.

Ensure Vulnerabilities Were Remediated

Evaluate your security posture using the same techniques employed by today’s cyber-criminals. Users can now re-test exploited systems months after a pen-test and agents can be upgraded through this feature.

Controlled Commercial-grade Exploits Using a Simple Interface

Endpoint systems tested with commercial-grade client-side exploits in a controlled manner using a simple interface. Through network testing, this solution gathers network information and performs attacks to test the systems’ ability to identify and remediate.

Only Impact integrates web application testing with network, endpoint and wireless testing, enabling you to assess your organization’s ability to detect, prevent and respond to real-world, multi-staged threats.

Endpoint
Test endpoint systems with commercial-grade client-side exploits in a controlled manner using a simple interface. Endpoint penetration testing through Core Impact Pro lets you test desktops, laptops, workstations for various vulnerabilities, in addition to gauging the effectiveness of anti-virus, IDC, and other perimeter defenses

Multi-Vector Penetration Testing Solution with Core Impact Pro
Core Impact® Pro is the most comprehensive, commercial-grade penetration testing product available, enabling you to conduct real-world assessments across a broad spectrum of risk areas, including:

Web Application Penetration Testing
Web Application Penetration Testing with Core Impact Pro allows you to pinpoint exploitable Cross-Site Scripting, SQL Injection and all other OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities in your web applications, not only giving visibility into where application weaknesses exist, but also determining how they can open the door to subsequent network-based attacks.

End-User Security Awareness Testing
End-User Security Awareness Testing with Core Impact Pro determines the susceptibility of email users to social engineering attacks, assesses the overall security of their systems, and depicts how individual client-side exposures can be linked to large-scale breaches of backend servers.

Endpoint Penetration Testing
Core Impact Pro enables you to penetration test standard desktop images prior to deployment in your live environment.

Mobile Device Penetration Testing
Mobile device penetration testing with Impact Pro pinpoints and addresses gaps in end-user awareness and security exposures in their devices before attackers do. With Core Impact Pro’s Mobile Device Penetration Testing capabilities, you can demonstrate the exploitability of iPhone®, Android™ and BlackBerry® smart phones using the same attack techniques employed by criminals today.

Network Penetration Testing
Network Penetration Testing with Core Impact Pro replicates the actions of an attacker taking advantage of OS, service and application weaknesses across network systems, revealing where exploitable vulnerabilities are, how they can be linked to traverse your network, how defenses react, and what remediation steps are necessary.

Password and Identity Cracking
CloudCypher, a new online service from Core, works with Windows NTLM Hashes discovered by Impact Pro during testing and attempts to determine plaintext passwords for those hashes. Any passwords that are determined will be passed back to the Impact Pro workspace that requested them. This is done through the use of modules, the original module that submitted the hashes will be used to retrieve the resulting passwords. These obtained passwords can then be used for additional security testing. CloudCypher was created and is managed by Core and held within Amazon Web Services.

Wireless Network Penetration Testing
Wireless Penetration Testing with Core Impact Pro allows IT security managers to identify at-risk wireless networks, crack encryption codes, and trace attack paths from initial points of wireless exposure to backend resources housing critical data — gaining actionable data at each step for efficient remediation.

Testing the Efficacy of IPS/IDS, Firewalls and Other Defenses

Using Core Impact software solutions, you can proactively test the efficacy of their network, endpoint, web application, wireless, and email defenses both to ensure that these technologies are working properly, and to aid in the process of evaluating products to determine ROI and influence future buying decisions.

Validating Vulnerabilities Identified by Scanners
Core Impact integrates with the most widely-used network and web vulnerability scanners, allowing you to import scan results and run exploits to test identified vulnerabilities.

SCADA Security Testing
Core Security is partnering with ExCraft labs, a Core Secured Partner, that has created numerous exploits specifically for SCADA systems, that are utilized in Core Impact Pro.

Network Device Penetration Testing
Impact Pro is the first commercial-grade penetration testing software that can specifically target network devices and prove how a single intrusion could escalate into a widespread data breach.

Validate Network and Web Vulnerability Scan Results
To effectively protect your organization’s information assets, a vulnerability management strategy must encompass multiple steps – from scanning to remediation:

  • Scan network servers, workstations, firewalls, routers and various applications for vulnerabilities.
  • Identify which vulnerabilities pose real threats to your network.
  • Determine the potential impact of exploited vulnerabilities.
  • Prioritize and execute remediation efforts.

Scanning applications can provide a key component to the vulnerability management process by helping you to understand your organization’s potential vulnerabilities. Penetration testing with Core Impact builds on this process by identifying which vulnerabilities are real, while determining if and how they can be exploited. This gives you the information you need to intelligently prioritize remediation efforts and effectively allocate security resources.

Core Impact Pro Penetration Testing Reports
One of the most valuable features of Core Impact Pro is its ability to arm users with the actionable data that they need to drive ongoing IT vulnerability and security management operations. From generating detailed vulnerability exposure details that allow organizations to target remediation efforts, to providing IT and security managers with metrics that illustrate how well their layered point solution defenses are working – or whether they’re compliant with various industry regulations, Core Impact Pro’s onboard reports deliver the powerful information that organizations need to address their most significant weaknesses and help minimize risks.
