Penetration Testing

 

Let us Build, Implement & Manage Your Penetration Testing Program!

Penetration tests are critical to any organization鈥檚 cybersecurity program – they help companies of all sizes identify vulnerabilities within their network and protect systems from malicious attackers .

麻豆社区app鈥檚 penetration testing services seek out vulnerabilities and weaknesses in your network, systems, applications and processes and attempt to exploit them to determine your organizational risk.

Penetration Testing or Pen Testing is a form of ethical hacking. It refers to the process of simulating a cyber attack against your systems or networks in order to exploit vulnerabilities. In web application penetration testing, the penetration tester uses publicly available information to try and breach the web application firewalls (WAF). Ethical hacking and penetration testing guides organizations on how they can strengthen and improve their network security.

A standard penetration test typically involves attempting to breach your application systems such as your servers and API to uncover any vulnerabilities. This information can then be used to improve your overall security program and security policies as well as to remediate vulnerabilities and patch systems where necessary.

There are 5 types of penetration testing methodologies:

Internal Penetration Testing or Gray Box Penetration Testing

An internal pen test exploits vulnerabilities in your network from the perspective of a malicious attacker who has gained access to your application.

External Penetration Testing

An external pen test exploits vulnerabilities in your network from the perspective of a malicious outside attacker who is trying to gain access to your application using the company鈥檚 assets that are visible on the internet.

Targeted Penetration Testing or White Box Penetration Test

A targeted pen is a great way to educate your security team on how hackers access systems. In this approach, the penetration tester is given the all access privilege to access your systems and assess misconfigurations and vulnerabilities. Essentially your security team and the penetration tester work together to try and infiltrate the system and implement corrective actions.

Blind Penetration Testing or Black Box Penetration Testing

A blind pen test is where the penetration tester is given only the name of the organization then they need to identify company assets and try to infiltrate them – this approach gives a more detailed account of how an attacker could infiltrate the system.

Double-blind Penetration Testing

A double-blind pen test is where your security team have no prior awareness of the simulated attack- this approach allows you to test a real life scenario and see how the companies security defences would work if there was a real attempt to breach the system.

There are several types of penetration tests that an organization can do – below are a few of the most common types. It is crucial that an organization complete the most advanced penetration testing that will best protect their network.

Network Penetration Testing

Identifies weaknesses in your network to uncover where a malicious attacker may be able to gain access.

Web Application Penetration Testing

A form of website penetration testing that is automated penetration testing.

Physical Penetration Testing

This type of pen test attacks physical access points, network devices, as well as doors, locks, alarms and other types of access control within a facility to uncover where a malicious attacker may be able to gain access. This type of pen test is usually completed by data centers, hospitals, manufacturing facilities as well as government and military organizations.

Social Engineering Penetration Testing

This is a form of聽 human security penetration testing. The pen test targets employees and attempts to make them reveal sensitive information so that the hacker may gain access to the network

Mobile Application Penetration Testing

This pen test uncover vulnerabilities within the code and architecture of your Android/ IOS app.

Penetration testers then use a variety of penetration testing tools and penetration testing software to identify vulnerabilities. These tools can typically scan through scripts, code and virtual machines for penetration testing to uncover loopholes and errors within the network. The final deliverable of penetration testing is a Penetration Testing Report which includes details of the scope, the vulnerabilities that were uncovered, how long a malicious attacker may remain undetected and the data that was compromised. Once the organization has addressed all vulnerabilities they may retest and achieve a Penetration Testing Certification that can be used for regulatory compliance.

Why Penetration Testing is important!

There are many benefits to conducting regular penetration testing, including:

E

Preventing a data breach that could compromise sensitive data, affect operations, destroy company reputation and lead to data breach fines and ransomware.

E

Developing an accurate understanding of how effective your security management program works.

E

Developing an accurate understanding of how effective your breach notification systems and incident response controls would work in case of a real breach.

E

Identifying vulnerabilities realtime, accurately and consistently.

E

Improving information security programs by staying ahead of threats.

E

麻豆社区app Penetration Testing Methodology

1. Ongoing Planning

We begin by understanding your business and your security and compliance requirements before building out your Penetration Testing Plan.
We run multiple penetration tests regularly to update this plan where needed and measure effectiveness.

2. Penetration Testing

During this phase we properly configure your penetration tests to聽 scan your network, identify open ports, evaluate system information and correlate information with known vulnerabilities.
We also configure any automated scans using the latest tools and techniques to streamline the processes.

3. Evaluation and Remediation

In this phase we reference the company鈥檚 risk management strategy to validate vulnerabilities and evaluate the risk. We then work with you to address each of the vulnerabilities for remediation, mitigation or acceptance; before running another test to confirm resolution.

4. Penetration Testing Policy

We will develop, review and improve your penetration testing policy and other documentation to comply with regulatory standards as required for:

– NIST Penetration Testing

– PCI Penetration Testing

– HITRUST Penetration Testing

– HIPAA Pen Testing

– SOC 2 Penetration Testing

– Penetration Testing FedRAMP

5. Reporting

The steps taken across this entire assessment, the pen test results and all remediation activities are documented and can be referenced to improve the program anytime. Additionally, the final delivery of the assessment is a Penetration Testing Report as required by business stakeholders and for cybersecurity audit. Typically, penetration tests are completed annually or following significant changes to the network.
