External Footprint Analysis

Schneider Downs consultants will use commonly available open source tools, scanners and databases which can be acquired by any attacker to obtain a blue print of the client and its Internet profile. Our seasoned professionals approach external foot printing without any significant prior knowledge about the clients network. We gather domain names, IP network ranges, and other information about hosts, such as operating systems and applications. This service may discover new hosts or applications on the network that the client management is not aware of such as vendor, employee or partner added systems.
