Infrastructure Penetration Testing

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.

Internal Penetration Test

An Internal Penetration Test is performed by a qualified Pentest People security consultant who is 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 types of employee who has access to the building.

This 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

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. This could be your Firewall, VPN endpoints, Web Servers and 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 so this assessment provides you with a real risk indicator as to your external security posture.

What Are The Risks?

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.

Frequently
Asked Questions


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.
