Penetration testing (also called pen testing) is the practice of testing a computer system, network or web application to find vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit. Our external penetration test simulates a remote attack as if we were a hacker in a distant location from your actual servers trying to hack them through the internet. We perform two different types of external penetration tests, a white box test and a black box test.
- A white box penetration test is where the client provides us with the design of the infrastructure and target information in order to give us a better idea of what to attack. This allows us to conduct a more precise attack against the design and infrastructure of the company and it’s network.
- In a black box penetration test we receive no information about the client’s infrastructure and simulate an attack on them the way a malicious adversary would. This gives the client an opportunity to test its defenses and find out what could really happen if they were the target of an attack.
Our external penetration testing services are comprehensive and conducted by experienced experts in the field. We will audit your security remotely and perform a multitude of assessments including:
DNS Configuration, network enumeration and vulnerability detection, software mis-configurations, out of date software, service identification, proper network segmentation and many other important aspects of security that may cause problems for you if the problem goes untreated..
A red team engagement is the first step to improving your company’s risk level. More importantly, it will significantly lower your exposure to a possible hacker targeting your company and help to prevent valuable assets from being stolen or destroyed. A quote for an external penetration test starts off as low as $895.00. Contact us for further information.
