SecSmash: Free, open source penetration testing tool
Many times, the poor deployment of a product can leave critical pieces of infrastructure unprotected. Weak passwords or failing to use two-factor authentication can leave security products intended to protect an organization exposed. The SecSmash framework helps penetration testers identify any such weaknesses and correct them before an attacker poses a threat by turning centralized management, monitoring and security tools into command and control, aka C2, infrastructure. Attackers frequently use the C2 approach to commandeer security systems.

The product can be purchased, configured and deployed in three clicks and in less than ten minutes.
