External Network Pen Testing

Pen Testing

InfoSight is here to help you answer these questions and any others you may have about External Network Pen Testing, a process that is becoming more and more critical each day. We will identify exactly where your systems are vulnerable and we will test the impact and risk associated with these vulnerabilities. Our goal is to get you and keep you protected.

  • How easy would it be for a hacker to penetrate my network from the outside?
  • What measures are safest and most effective, and which should we implement to best protect our data and assets?
  • Exactly what information and data are at risk?

Our External Network Pen Testing processes will reveal how effectively your organization's security policies actually protect your assets. We will identify the extent to which your system can be compromised before an actual attack occurs and determine the methods that best suit you and your company. InfoSight's Penetration testing includes:

  • Gathering information about the target before the test (reconnaissance)
  • Identifying possible vulnerable entry points
  • Actually attempting to break in (either virtually or actually) to totally test the effectiveness of the security
  • Reporting back the findings and results
Areas to be tested for vulnerabilities include:
     Router filtering
     Firewall filtering
     Visible IP services
     Operating system software flaws
     Server application software flaws
     Known configuration errors
     Information disclosure that may aid an attacker
     Web server misconfigurations
     Subnet scanning / host enumeration
     Publically available information gathering
An external network pen test can also be used to assess your security policy compliance, your employees' security awareness, and your organization's ability to identify and respond to security incidents.
