Check the security status of your network. How secure is it?
Network Penetration Testing
Network penetration testing involves the process of testing a network to find out the vulnerabilities that could exploit critical data in that network. The benefit of penetration testing in every organization is to know to what extent the system can be compromised before the attack is identified and also assess the response mechanism.
At ValueMentor, we provide comprehensive security testing and IT security assessments for your organization and which is based on the industry standards and compliance requirements such as OSSTMM, OWASP, PCI DSS, NIS, etc
Why Network Penetration Testing?
- Protection of sensitive data
- Secure an organizations network
- The network infrastructure, service, and data are crucial personal and business assets.
#Penetration Testing Methodology
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.
This process involves port scanning, service detection, and OS fingerprints.
Gaining access involves vulnerability assessment and exploiting.
In this phase, our security analysts prepare the remedial actions for the threats and vulnerabilities discovered in the previous phases.
A detailed report is submitted about the process which we had conducted it includes screenshots of the process.
In the last phase of testing, we perform a retest on the scoped environment to verify the effectiveness of the remediation measures taken by the client.
Network Penetration Testing Approach
External network penetration testing
It is to reveal the presence of known vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker from the external perimeter of the network, usually from the internet.
Internal network penetration testing
An internal network security assessment follows a similar technique to external assessment but with a more complete view of the internal network security. Testing will be performed from internal network of the organisation. Which includes devices like servers, router, firewall, workstation etc
Network Penetration Testing Process
Our process includes.
- Black box testing
The testing is conducted without the knowledge of infrastructure. It is similar to real life hacking and it could take a long time
- White box testing
The testing is conducted with the knowledge of infrastructure. Here the errors can be spotted easily.
