Types of Network Penetration Tests

External Penetration Testing

External penetration testing companies follow a testing procedure that reveals what a hacker can see in the network and exploits the vulnerabilities seen over the internet. Here the threat is from an external network on the internet. An external network penetration testing is performed over the internet, bypassing the firewall.

Internal Penetration Testing

Internal Penetration test shows the risks that arise from within the network. This test is performed by connecting to the internal LAN and thereby trying to explore the vulnerabilities that exist. The internal pentesting process helps to identify the potential spread of a malware within internal enterprise systems.

Segmentation Testing

Segmentation testing segregates the less secure networks from more secure networks and ensures that the communication between these networks is restricted. Pentest is a vital tool which helps to confirm that the segmentation in your business is properly working and has zero security holes. It is the responsibility of the pentesting companies to ensure this.

Black Box Penetration Testing

Black Box Penetration Testing is carried out with zero knowledge about the network. The pen tester acquires or fetches relevant information using penetration testing tools or social engineering techniques. The publicly available information over the internet may be used by the penetration tester.

White Box Penetration Testing

White Box Pen Testing is called complete knowledge testing. Here, the Pen Tester are given full information about the target network. This information can be the host IP address, domains owned, applications used, network diagrams, and security defences like IPs or IDs in the network.

Gray Box Penetration Testing

In Gray Box Pen Testing Process, the tester simulates an inside employee. The tester gets an account on the internal network and the consent to access the network. Gray Box Penetration Testing evaluates internal threats from employees within the company.

Penetration Testing UAE – Benefits

Criticality of Vulnerabilities

Our solution proactively identifies the criticality/impact of the vulnerabilities and false positives generated by the automated scanners. It helps prioritize the treatment action, whether the vulnerability should get patched immediately or not- considering the criticality.

Regulatory Compliance

Pen testing solution helps enterprises stick-in-line with global regulatory standards like PCI DSS, HIPAA, GLBA etc. It helps them avoid hefty fines that can emerge due to various non-conformities.

Cost of Compliance

A security breach may cost heavily to an organization. There might occur a network downtime that can eventually drive loss to businesses. Penetration testing security services aid enterprises in avoiding these financial slides by swift risk identification and mitigation.

Why Network Penetration Testing

The IT infrastructure is now becoming more compounded and complex. Internal networks provide access over the internet to legitimate users. Internal networks provide access over the internet to legitimate users. But the given user credentials and privilege levels often stick outside the firewall, increasing the attack surface. Such infrastructure requires to be evaluated regularly for security threats.

Pen testing companies determine what type of resources get uncovered to the outer world, specify the security risk involved, detect the possible types of attacks, and help prevent them from surfacing your IT infrastructure.

Penetration Testing UAE: Methodology

Information gathering & Network Discovery

We collect complete information about all active services, hosts, insecure services alongside links, processes, and related surfing details. The information gathering phase establishes the basis or foundation for the remaining testing process.

Scanning and enumeration

The pen testers in this phase scan the network to identify live hosts and open ports. Further, they enumerate these ports and hosts to discover machine names, services, and other network resources.

Gaining access

Gaining access involves vulnerability assessment and exploiting.

Remedial Action Identification

Our security analysts construct the right remedial actions for the identified threats and vulnerabilities in the previous phase.

Reporting & Re-Testing

The phase corresponds to the detailed reporting of all the findings with prioritized remediation plans/ recommendations. On successful remediation, a retest is performed, validating the effectiveness of the fixes applied.
