Infrastructure Security Testing
Identify and remediate your network security vulnerabilities and stay resilient against Cyber Attacks
Infrastructure Security Testing
Also known as a Penetration Testing or ethical hacking, is a simulated cyber attack against computer systems performed using manual and automated technologies to systematically compromise servers, endpoints, web applications, wireless networks, network devices, mobile devices and other potential points of exposure.
External and internal penetration tastings are the two components that make up our Infrastructure Penetration Testing service. Each of these components will be independently tested to fully ensure the security of your corporate environment.
Infrastructure Penetration Testing aims to find and exploit vulnerabilities in your company’s networks and servers to strengthen your defenses against internal and external threats.
Infrastructure Security Testing – What do we test for?
- Every scanning is carried out in accordance with internationally recognized frameworks.
- The fundamental framework is built on Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) and NIST 800-115 at a minimum, although our methodology extends far beyond that.
- We’ll find, verify, and priorities exploitable vulnerabilities inside your infrastructure
- We’ll use tools hands on testing approaches comparable to those used by real-world threat actors.
- Open ports
- Missing patches
- Insecure Network Segregation
- Unencrypted Communications
- Password Reuse
- Default SNMTP Community Strings
- Insecure Firewalls
- Vulnerable VPN endpoints
- Misconfigured Web Servers
- Default Credentials
- DoS (Denial of services)
How can we Help?
Cyber Legion provide a continuous cycle of Penetration Testing combined with remediation via Secure Client Portal, to protect/enhance your assets and help improve the organization security posture.
We have deep expertise in application security, mobile apps and network pen testing. We work specifically to help improve the security of our clients and offer comprehensive security testing that highlight issues in a detailed and intelligible manner.
Our testing methodologies are based on well known security Frameworks and specifically designed to remove the risk of inconvenience during the testing process and keep you up to date as the test progresses. We work directly with our clients to ensure the best possible outcome of all engagements.
Infrastructure testing is a penetration test (also known as a pentest or pentesting) or vulnerability assessment of computer systems, network devices or IP address ranges to identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited.
The penetration testing execution standard consists of seven (7) main sections. These cover everything related to a penetration test – from the initial communication and reasoning behind a pentest, through the intelligence gathering and threat modeling phases where testers are working behind the scenes in order to get a better understanding of the tested organization, through vulnerability research, exploitation and post exploitation, where the technical security expertise of the testers come to play and combine with the business understanding of the engagement, and finally to the reporting, which captures the entire process, in a manner that makes sense to the customer and provides the most value to it.
Network systems cannot be completely protected by the perimeter. To get access, an attacker only needs to exploit a single vulnerability. An insecure network can be used to escalate increase privileges once inside.
This is why we highly recommend testing both the internal and external networks. It is common for an attacker to sit inside your network for some time before finding the most appropriate path to fully compromise the network.
Penetration tests (or pen tests) are attacks on your companies’ software and hardware systems, carried out by ‘ethical hackers’ to expose your system’s vulnerabilities. One example is a web application pen test. Web apps, browsers and plug-ins can house sensitive financial or personal data, so hackers are increasingly putting their efforts towards gaining access to them. The test would examine the endpoint of every web application.
The time that penetration testing takes depends on the size and complexity of your organization’s system structure, as well as the scope of the test itself. For the ‘average’ company, a network penetration test should take around three days. For a merchant processing millions of credit cards a year, for example, a pen test will take over a week, or possibly two.
