HackerTarget.com began in 2007 as a project that would enable people to test firewalls externally with an online port scanner. Since those early days the site has developed into a complete vulnerability scanning solution; offering an easy and convenient way to access a range of powerful open source security tools.
By utilizing hosted security testing tools, organisations are able to test their Internet perimeter and servers from an external perspective. Many organisations have firewalls or intrusion prevention devices that make testing of the perimeter from an internal system ineffective and prone to errors.
More accurate results are possible by probing from the perspective of actual attackers (ie. from the Internet).
Not everyone who runs a website or Internet connected hosts can afford a dedicated network security team. HackerTarget.com scanners assist in the assessment of perimeter firewalls, websites and Internet servers.
In addition they can be used to validate results from commercial vulnerability testing products. The name Hacker Target comes from the fact that everyone really is a target.
It does not matter that you are a small profile organisation, or you do not store credit cards on your systems. Attacks may be targeted at your organisation or you may be merely a target of opportunity..
