Listen to one of our Infrastructure expert’s breakdown of this Pentest People Service
Infrastructure Testing can be performed Internally within your corporate network or Externally over the Internet
Internal Penetration Test
Our Internal Infrastructure Penetration Testing service is performed by a qualified Pentest People Infrastructure security consultant who is onsite within your corporate network.
This type of Internal Penetration Testing looks for security issues and vulnerabilities on the inside of your corporate network. For instance, someone with the same physical access as a member of staff or other types of employee who has access to the building.
This Infrastructure Penetration Testing Assessment provides a very comprehensive view of the configuration of your corporate network devices and servers, from a security viewpoint of an insider, connected to your network.
External Penetration Test
Our External Penetration Testing service is performed by a Pentest People Infrastructure security consultant whilst remote from your corporate network.
This type of assessment is concerned with assessing the external, Internet-facing infrastructure of your corporate network. This could be your Firewall, VPN endpoints, Web Servers, Mail Servers etc.
The level of access to these resources would be the same as an external hacker trying to break into your corporate environment. Therefore providing you with a real risk indicator as to your external security posture.
Remote Internal Testing
Traditionally, Infrastructure Penetration Tests have been conducted onsite where a Pentest People Consultant would visit your office and physically connect to the network infrastructure to perform the assessment.
However, with the issues faced around the Coronavirus situation, Pentest People have released SecureGateway, a technology-led alternative to having a consultant visit site.
Pentest People are offering a Remote Infrastructure Penetration Test where the whole engagement is performed without the need to visit the customer site.
The client can either download a Virtual Machine image that can be installed within the corporate network or be shipped a standalone network appliance.
Both solutions create a secure channel to the Pentest People Operations Centre where the assigned consultant can then command the image or appliance in the same way as they would if they had their laptop on site.
All data collected during the test is held securely at our ISO27001 Operations Centre allowing the consultant to perform the assessment and upload the results to SecurePortal for delivery to the customer.

Infrastructure Video Transcript
Our Infrastructure Testing service consists of four penetration tests, followed by a comprehensive report cataloguing all the vulnerabilities found during the assessment. Before you receive the report, there’ll be an opportunity to discuss the vulnerabilities found in a bit more context, and any mitigations that you’ve already got in place to accurately assess the severity of the vulnerabilities. Within our suite of infrastructure testing services.
There are two main types of tests, external and internal infrastructure assessment. Our external infrastructure testing service is to identify vulnerabilities in externally facing services such as VPN login pages, and websites. These are often targeted by hackers to get an initial foothold. Our internal infrastructure assessment assumes that a breach of the network has already taken place and it aims to identify the top level of access an unauthorised user is going to be able to obtain in Active Directory environments. This is often a domain admin or enterprise admin account, as this represents the highest level of access to network resources on computers.
Our infrastructure testing methodology consists of both manual testing and automated vulnerability scanning for external infrastructure assessments. We start with vulnerability scans, service detection, and open source intelligence gathering.
Following the remediation advice, we provide in the report will help your business improve its cybersecurity.
