An external network pen test is designed to test the effectiveness of perimeter security controls to prevent and detect attacks as well as to identify weaknesses in internet-facing assets such as web, mail and FTP servers. HTD penetration testing specialists examine the current state of your infrastructure to assess the resilience of your security controls, and to identify all the ways that an attacker might use to gain unauthorized access.
An external penetration test includes a full external vulnerability scan, but that’s just where it gets started. All output from scanning tools will be investigated manually by HTD pentesters to remove false positives, run exploits to verify the extent/impact of the weakness.
Where a vulnerability scanner would simply report that a service has a critical weakness, a penetration test would look to exploit that weakness and gain control of the server. If successful, the pentesters will use their newly acquired access to pivot further, and compromise further systems and services.
Our network penetration testers use the latest intelligence gathering techniques to uncover security and technical information that could be used to help them access your network.
Using a combination of manual and automated tools, our testers identify security weaknesses and develop a strategy to exploit them.
To obtain initial access to your network, our experienced network penetration testers exploit all identified vulnerabilities, but in a safe way that avoids damage and disruption.
Once a network assessment is completed, our testers document key findings and supply prioritized remediation guidance to help address any identified exposures.
Highlighting highly rated vulnerabilities and business risks, and our recommendations.
Our findings and suggested recommendations for remediation and mitigation of the identified vulnerabilities.
