Outside of those executives who have their heads in the sand over security there’s hardly anything that can keep you from getting your work done more than a Windows system junked up with a bunch of security testing tools.
Well, if VMware or VirtualBox haven’t been a good fit, perhaps Windows XP Mode in Windows 7 will be. It’s a cheap and seamless way to run your security testing tools in an isolated environment while maintaining the integrity of your host computer. Check out this piece I wrote for SearchEnterpriseDesktop.com:
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
