Security testing and server scanning for your organisation
Netcraft has an excellent pedigree in security testing and server scanning; We've been providing network security services, including application and penetration testing and automated security scanning since 1996.Contact Sales
Schedule scans of your servers that automatically look for vulnerabilities and produce comprehensive reports. These contain recommendations which come from public security advisories and our research gained from testing thousands of networks
Our team will assume the role of a determined hacker looking to exploit weaknesses in your security and gain access to your application or network. We will produce a final written report with proposed solutions along with links to recommendations and advisories
Automated Vulnerability Scanning
As a PCI approved scanning vendor, Netcraft can provide vulnerability scanning up to PCI ASV compliance in addition to application testing (commonly referred to as penetration testing or pentesting) of both web and mobile applications, performed by experienced professionals.
Netcraft’s automated vulnerability scanning service regularly tests your internet infrastructure and supplies you with the information you need to maintain your security and eliminate vulnerabilities.
Schedule scans of your network as frequently as needed - daily, weekly or monthly. Even on-demand for individual hosts
Give your customers confidence with our dynamically generated seal which certifies we audited your network
As a PCI Approved Scanning Vendor (PCI ASV) we can help fulfil the regular scanning requirement of PCI Compliance
Our experienced security professionals are here to help by email or phone
New tests and advisories are added daily from public security advisories and our own research gained from testing thousands of networks
Descriptive severity grading and categorisation of each exploit's risk is available in a web report. Whilst differential reporting highlights security changes between scans
Safe example exploits are embedded into the reports, where possible, for easy ‘click to test’ self-verification of fixes
Clear and concise remediation advice - in the form of a web accessible database of fixes and resources for mitigating discovered vulnerabilities
Automated host detection
Netcraft does not need to be informed of every network change. A list of IP addresses and DNS names or read-only cloud hosting API keys are sufficient.
Vulnerabilities and misconfigurations
Available network services are tested for the presence of published well-known vulnerabilities as well as security misconfigurations.
Operating system detection
Entirely automated, based on TCP/IP characteristics and software behaviour.
Denial-of-service and other high-impact exploits are reported (based on version numbers and fingerprints) but not executed, and test load is controlled.
Full TCP/UDP scan show services unintentionally exposed by maintenance or configuration errors. Services are identified even when running on non-standard ports.
Web servers are crawled using modern technology to determine software used and then further tests are run to identify misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and indicators of compromise such as backdoors and shopping site skimmers.
The scanning software is continuously improved, enabling support for modern technologies such as IPv6 and latest versions of the TLS protocol as well as less common ones such as DTLS.
Best practice recommendations
Reports include advice on how to make the best of existing security measures such as HTTP headers.

Netcraft’s Application Testing service is an internet security audit, performed by experienced security professionals. Manual testing highlights issues in your application that can’t be identified in an automated test. The service is designed to rigorously push the defences of internet networks and applications. It is suitable for commissioning, third party assurance, post-attack analysis, audit and regulatory purposes where independence and quality of service are important requirements. A final written report provides an analysis of any security or service problems discovered together with proposed solutions, links to detailed advisories and recommendations for improving the security of the service under test.
Rigorously push the defences of internet networks and web applications
Have your app decompiled and inspected for any leaks of information. Not only is the app itself tested, but also any server it interacts with
Satisfy compliance with various security regulations and requirements, such as PCI DSS requirement 11.3
Receive a final written report with proposed solutions and links to advisories and advice. Understand the probability and severity of vulnerabilities with impact predictions
Reduce the likelihood of vulnerabilities being present when the application reaches production.
Check that no vulnerabilities have been introduced throughout the application’s life.
Third party assurance
Satisfy your customers that any risks have been appropriately mitigated.
Post attack analysis
Discover what went wrong and put steps in place to prevent a recurrence. Gain insight on potential data breaches that were possible and how to respond if they have occured.
