ETHICAL NETWORK HACKING ASSESSMENT
NETWORK PENETRATION TESTING OR ETHICAL HACKING
UNCOVERS YOUR NETWORK'S VULNERABILITIES
NETWORK PENETRATION TESTING TO UNCOVER VULNERABILITIES
WE SIMULATE A MALICIOUS ATTACK AND ATTEMPT TO GAIN ACCESS TO YOUR NETWORK
A skilled hacker can continually utilize all phases of the hacker methodology - recon, port and vulnerability scanning, and exploitation/post-exploitation - over and over to breach more and more systems that are connected, and thus can ultimately gain access to systems that were initially unreachable.
A significant aspect of penetration tests is that they don't simply scan networks for security holes like vulnerability scanners do, but also determine the efficacy of security controls, and even determine - in the event that a data breach occurs - how well certain security systems react to aid in identifying the cyber attack. Such security controls include monitoring systems such as Network/Host Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDSs/HIDSs), as well as an Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS), along with comprehensive log systems (access logs, system logs, traffic logs, etc.) to capture and analyze all network traffic for auditing,
In the event of a compromised administrative account, a correctly operating Intrusion Detection System (IDS) and monitoring system would identify a data breach, alert security admins, and would specifically pinpoint the occurrences of accounts being compromised and of data exfiltration. A penetration test helps to not only identify vulnerable systems, but also identifies weak systems that can be exploited on multiple fronts. Thus, a penetration test gives a very thorough and comprehensive overview of your company's network security posture.
WE UTILIZE A COMBINATION OF
AUTOMATED AND MANUAL PENETRATION TECHNIQUES
AUTOMATED & MANUAL PENETRATION TECHNIQUES COMBINED
Such tools are used to identify system vulnerabilities and to automatically apply exploits and to drop payloads in a way that is based on certain known system weaknesses. This offers a quick and easy way to test a system, but is not very efficient against unknown system vulnerabilities.
This offers a more in-depth pen-test that can result in the use of uncommon attack vectors, giving your company a better, more realistic view of a real-life attack. This test uses proprietary methodologies, custom exploits/payloads and scripts to compromise systems, account passwords, sensitive data, etc. Manual testing also allows security engineers to verify the findings of automated scanning tools in order to eliminate false positives.
