Presenting companies with a detailed vulnerability report and recommendations for improvement, network penetration testing enables IT departments to validate existing security controls and meet security compliance requirements while allowing managers to better prioritize investment for remediation efforts.
ValueMentor’s OSCP, CEH, ECSA, CREST certified security analysts have performed more than 2500+ penetration testing engagements in providing real penetration testing services
Types of Network Penetration Test
External Penetration Testing
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.
Black Box Penetration Testing
White Box Penetration Testing
Gray Box Penetration Testing

Benefits of Penetration Testing
Criticality of Vulnerabilities
Penetration testing helps complying the audit regulatory standards like PCI DSS, HIPAA and GLBA. This avoids the huge fines for non-compliance.
Cost of Compliance
Why Network Penetration Testing
The IT infrastructure is becoming more complex and wider. The internal networks have been given access over the internet to the legitimate users along with the user credentials and the privilege level, outside the firewall, which increases the surface of attack. Such infrastructure needs to be assessed regularly for security threats.
Identification of what type of resources are exposed to the outer world, determining the security risk involved in it, detecting the possible types of attacks and preventing those attacks.
Network Penetration Testing Methodology
Information gathering & Network Discovery
We gather information such as Active Hosts, Active Services, Insecure Services, Fingerprinting the Operating System, Services and links and internet surfing related to this, etc.
Scanning and enumeration
This process involves port scanning, service detection, and OS fingerprints.
Gaining access involves vulnerability assessment and exploiting.
Remedial Action Identification
In this phase, our security analysts prepare the remedial actions for the threats and vulnerabilities discovered in the previous phases.
Reporting & Re-Testing
A detailed report of the findings, recommendations on remediation are submitted. On successful remediation, a retest is performed to validate the effectiveness of the fixes applied
