A VM to support the use of Sapphire's penetration testing services.
This VM will easily facilitate security testing against VMs within your private Azure environment. There is no need to configure complex VPN or remote access facilities or permit traffic originating from the Internet to your trusted networks. Once operational, the system reaches out to Sapphire’s infrastructure to permit the assigned Sapphire penetration tester(s).
The Connect virtual machine functions like a tester’s workstation plugged into your network, though under remote control. Many tests that would normally require an on-site presence can be carried out remotely, minimising the requirement, risk and expense of physical contact. All test traffic remains within your private network making full use of the local network speed to enable thorough tests to be completed with efficient use of time.
This system is only of use to those who have already engaged Sapphire for the purposes of testing their infrastructure and systems. It’s use and best placement within your infrastructure will be discussed whilst planning the testing activities.
