PENETRATION
TESTING

Find weaknesses in critical resources and improve your security baseline by simulating malicious attacks.

1_bug_1.gif

We take a hacker’s perspective on your infrastructure and simulate an attack on your IT systems to identify and validate vulnerabilities that may pose risks to your organization. By mimicking the tactics and techniques of real-world adversaries, we validate exploitable pathways, identify errors in programming, and diagnose logical flaws in the system architecture that attackers could use to gain access to your IT environment.

Why Perform Penetration Testing

Achieve Important Goals

01

Find and Fix Vulnerabilities

When performing penetration testing, we look at your organization from the viewpoint of a malicious actor, find exploitable vulnerabilities, and fix them before they are used by adversaries.

02

Validate Security

Posture

By imitating actions that adversaries would take to penetrate your IT infrastructure, we gain an accurate understanding of your security posture and verify how effectively your systems work.

03

Identify Gaps in Compliance

A successful perimeter breach during penetration testing can expose violations of policies and compliance measures on the part of security staff or other employees.

04

Get Management

Support

Penetration testing results from an independent third party help showcase security flaws to an organization's management and provide evidence-based reasons for increasing budgets or implementing new solutions.

05

Train Your

Security Team

Penetration testing allows you to assess how well the security team is prepared for cyberattacks as well as to measure their monitoring and incident handling capabilities.

 

What you can test

Penetration Testing Categories

EXTERNAL TESTING

Finds and exploits vulnerabilities in systems, services, and applications exposed to the internet

SMART CONTRACT AND BLOCKCHAIN SECURITY ASSESSMENT

Perform a security review of your blockchain ecosystem and detect vulnerabilities within smart contracts (re-entrancy vulnerabilities, transaction ordering/timestamp dependence issues, mishandled exceptions, DoS- and deadlock-related vulnerabilities)

WI-FI TESTING

Tests the security of deployed wireless solutions and all wireless devices

MANUAL INTERNAL TESTING

Searches for security weaknesses from the point of view of an attacker who has gained access to an end user's system

WEB APPLICATION TESTING

Complex and detailed testing to discover security vulnerabilities in web-based applications

SOCIAL ENGINEERING TESTING

Uses social engineering methods and test phishing campaigns to attempt to obtain sensitive information from employees

AUTOMATED INTERNAL TESTING (AVAILABLE AS CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT)

Tests your entire infrastructure daily, weekly, monthly, or at
any other interval, trying every possible attack vector based
on automated discovery of vulnerabilities and performance of ethical exploits while ensuring undisrupted network operation

MOBILE APPLICATION TESTING

Analyzes the behavior of mobile applications (iOS and Android) in a dedicated isolated sandbox environment

API TESTING

Reveals security vulnerabilities in API functions, how APIs could be abused, and how authorization and authentication could be bypassed

 

How you can test

Choose the Type of Pentesting That Best Suits Your Goals

The penetration tester has no internal knowledge of the target systems,theirarchitecture,ortheir source code. Taking an average hacker'sperspective,thetestertries to identify and exploit vulnerabilities from outside the network.

Visible

the customer's team has full information about the time and plan for the test

Implicit

 

the customer's  team has some general or partial information about the test

Blind/

Red teaming

the customer's team is not informed about when and how testing will be conducted

 

How You Can Test

Choose the Type of Penetration Testing That Best Suits Your Goals

Types of Penetration Testing: Black Box, White Box, Gray Box

Before performing penetration tests, we agree on how much the customer will know about the scope of testing and the testing plan by deciding on one of three testing types: 
∞ Visible – the customer's team has full information about the time and plan for the test.
∞ Implicit– the customer's team has some general or partial information about the test.
∞ Blind/Red teaming – the customer's team is not informed about when and how testing will be conducted.

ISSP Penetration Testing Methodology

ISSP Penetration Testing Methodology

What You Get in the Report 

Your penetration testing report will contain:

  • An Executive Summary for key decision-makers with no technical background, containing high-level results and what needs to be fixed immediately

  • A Technical Summary with specific findings

  • A description of successful attack vectors, demonstrating what vulnerabilities were exploited (and how) to penetrate the infrastructure

  • Recommendations for remediation and risk management

When you need penetration testing

  • You had a breach, recovered, and now want to outline other possible attack scenarios

  • You are about to release a major upgrade to your web app or you have developed your first mobile app and are about to launch it on the App Store or Google Play Store 

  • Your IT infrastructure was heavily rebuilt after you switched to working from home and needs to be assessed 

  • To win a deal, your client/partner/investor demands that you demonstrate cybersecurity compliance

  • A regulator requests that you regularly perform pentesting

  • Your most recent pentests were all delivered by your current service provider, so it’s a good time to change the attacker’s view and double-check previous results

  • You want to start taking care of cybersecurity, and pentesting is an easy way to start
