Beyond Security's AVDS (Automated Vulnerability Detection System) is a network appliance based, vulnerability scanning system that provides comprehensive penetration testing of your network, regardless of size. Penetration testing is all about identifying network security weaknesses before they are exploited internally or externally. At Beyond Security, we know a lot about security weaknesses. We manage one of the most popular IT security portals - SecuriTeam.com, members of our development team have written books on the subjects of penetration testing, vulnerability assessment, fuzzing, botnets, and more. SecuriTeam.com is operated by Beyond Security, Inc. as a public clearing house for the discussion and disclosure of vulnerabilities and it is one of the largest and most respected security information gathering portals on the Internet. This expertise was used to develop Automated Vulnerability Detection System. AVDS not only conducts completely automated security tests equal to manual penetration tests but also facilitates ongoing penetration testing to find the countless new vulnerabilities that surface every month. AVDS is updated with new attack profiles on a daily basis and so frequent testing will reveal new vulnerabilities in existing networks, even when no changes have been made to their equipment or applications.
