Infrastructure Penetration Testing
Let Pentest People measure your security posture through Infrastructure Penetration Testing to allow you to manage the identified issues.
A Pentest People consultant led Infrastructure Penetration Test provides a thorough and independent examination of your corporate infrastructure and systems to identify software and configuration based security vulnerabilities.
There are two components to Infrastructure Penetration Tests and these are Internal and External assessments. It is commonplace to combine these into a single test that covers both the internal and external components of the network.
An Internal Penetration Test is performed by a Pentest People security consultant onsite within your corporate network. This type of assessment looks for security issues and vulnerabilities on the inside of your corporate network with the same physical access as a member of staff or other type of employee who has access to the building.
An External Penetration Test is performed by a Pentest People 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. The level of access to these resources would be the same as an external hacker trying to break into your corporate environment.
IT Security and the associated terminology is a mainstream issue for all businesses due to the reliance business places on its IT systems combined with the prevalence of attacks. Various forms of compliance exist that mandate regular Penetration Testing as a standard and the risks of not doing anything are widely publicised.
Pentest People can help alleviate the risks associated with IT Security issued by performing regular internal and external assessments of your corporate infrastructure to identify the issues and to give you an ability to remediate these before an attacker would exploit
An Infrastructure Penetration Test is a full consultant-led assessment of the security of your external and internal infrastructure. Pentest People use industry leading methodologies and tools to identify the latest software and configuration vulnerabilities for all devices on your network.
An Internal Penetration Test is where a consultant would be placed within your corporate environment and connected to your internal network looking for security issues from the inside.
An External Penetration Test is where a consultant looks for security issues from the outside of your network, generally over the public Internet.
A Vulnerability Scan is performed by a software tool that scans the network and checks available services for known vulnerabilities. A Penetration Test takes this one step further and uses a consultant to check for vulnerabilities that an automated scanner cannot find as well as to manually confirm any identified vulnerabilities.
The deliverable from this service is a full Penetration Test Report that is uploaded to our SecurePortal and available for you to interact with.
This differs from the competition in the way this is delivered and we believe this is a much clearer way to work with an manage the results of the assessment.
