Curious what a penetration test would cost. Since the scope can be
quite different in each perception, I'll try to define the test:
An Internet site with 3 URLs, one of which is secured by password access,
to prevent private banking information from becoming public. There are 3
servers, all of which are secured via firewalls.
Is that one Internet connection, and one 'security perimeter' with all
servers behind it.
Or more than 1 Internet connection?
And/Or more than 1 security perimeters?
(because 3 systems behind a single common gateway/perimeter is less to test
than 3 seperate gateway/perimeters, with one server behind each.)
