What is Advanced Penetration Testing?

Advanced Pen Testing involves attempted breaching of application systems or front-end/back-end servers to discover security vulnerabilities, such as unsanitized inputs that can be susceptible to code injection attacks. Advanced penetration testing service from ValueMentor is a simulated cyber security testing approach to check for exploitable vulnerabilities.

ValueMentor is a CREST Penetration Testing Service Provider that simulates real-world cyber-attacks & provides quick insights into your security susceptibilities through Advanced Penetration Testing services.

Through our Advanced Pen Testing services, we demonstrate the existence of known vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an intruder – as they appear from outside the perimeter.

Our team conducts more than 500 Advanced Penetration Testing engagements annually.

Advanced Penetration Testing

Advanced penetrating testing services allow enterprises to validate their existing security controls. Some use cases are as follows:

Testing Incident Response

To enhance the readiness and to determine the alertness of the SOC / MDR Service, the  advanced penetration testing services may be utlized.

Simulate Targeted Network Attacks

The advanced pen testing or Red team assessments help simulate an adversary targeting your enterprise through specific attack channels.

Key Deliverables

A Penetration test gets useful only if the penetration tester provides you with an actionable report that can address your security troubles. It should be easy to understand and should explain each risk in particular.

Management Summary

Our reports include a management summary that contains the overall risk posture of the tested environment. Additionally, risks are classified based on their criticality and impact. Hence, all identified risks can be well-traced by the management till the closure.

Detailed Findings

The blue team, application support, and other technical team staff need to understand the details of the weakness. These detailed findings will deliver the required information to analyze the risks and make the mitigation effort smarter.

Remediation Advisory

Our team will deliver a list of recommended actions/remediation plans to mitigate all weaknesses. It could be as simple as referencing a web URL that provides step-by-step actions. It can also be detailed, listing down each step for mitigation.

Revalidation Tests

After successful patching efforts, the client environment is subject to revalidation tests confirming vulnerability closure. It checks if the identified risks are reduced to acceptable levels or eliminated completely. We will perform a minimum re-test to validate all closures.

Advanced Pen Testing methods

Our advanced penetration testing services differ from standard penetration testing in their overall approach, depth of inspection and coverage of the scope.

Advanced Blackbox Penetration Testing

Advanced black box penetration testing uses minimal details about the target environment. The testing process might take days to months based on the engagement model.

Advanced Grey box Testing

Advanced greybox testing simulates the tactics employed by adversaries such as APT groups or nation-states. The goal is not just to identify vulnerabilities but to determine the exploitation possibilities of enterprise data and customers.

Purple Team tests

The purple team testing is a security exercise where red and blue teams work closely to maximize cyber capabilities. It uses continuous feedback and information transfer to inspect enterprise defence capabilities. It is a tailored and deep assurance process that provides realistic assurance to the client organization.

Red team excercises

Red team assessment simulates the most advanced hackers. It provides a holistic security view of the organization from the perspective angle of an attacker. It helps enterprises determine how well they can withstand a real-world attack.
