Penetration Testing

What is Network Penetration Testing?

Network Penetration Testing (a.k.a. Network Pentest, Network VAPT, Network Pen Testing) is designed to emulate real-world security attacks by iterating deeper and wider from any initial entry point that are obtained. The testing is successful when the confidentiality, integrity, and/or availability of information that are compromised are valuable to our client’s business. The nature of the test is non-destructive.

Approach & Methodology

img-Network-Penetration-Testing

There are two main approaches to a Network Penetration Testing – Internal & external

Internal Penetration Testing

An internal penetration testing is performed within an organisation's network. It recreates the scenario of an attacker connected to the company’s internal network and is looking for vulnerabilities on the internal infrastructure.

External Penetration Testing

An external pen test is conducted remotely, with an ethical hacker searching for security vulnerabilities in internet-facing assets such as web, mail, and FTP servers. It identifies security vulnerabilities affecting external infrastructure which may be compromised to allow unauthorised access to the systems or data.

The vulnerabilities are evaluated using Common Vulnerability Scoring System) (CVSS) method to assess and evaluate the risk.
