External Network Penetration

Penetration Testing

InfoSight will thoroughly answer all of your questions and explain all necessary details to best inform you about External Network Penetration by identifying exactly where your systems are vulnerable and by testing the impact and risk associated with these risky areas.

Some questions you may have for us before we begin may include:

  • How simple is it for a hacker to penetrate and breach my network from the outside?
  • What measures and precautions should we implement that will be most effective?
  • Exactly which portals, and exactly what information is at risk for infiltration?

Our external network penetration testing activities will reveal how effective your organization's security polices and precautions actually are in protecting your assets and information, and we will also identify the extent to which your system can be compromised before an actual attack. You do not want to risk it.

InfoSight's Penetration Testing includes:

  • Gathering information about the target before the test (reconnaissance)
  • Identifying all possible entry points, vulnerabilities, and weaknesses
  • Attempting an actual security breach (either virtually or realistically)
  • Reporting back and analyzing the results and findings
4 Reasons Why an External Network Penetration Test is Crucial to Your Network Security:

1: An External Network Penetration Test Simulates a Real Attack
The purpose of an external network penetration is to simulate a real cyber-attack on the perimeter (or internet facing side) of your network in order to find vulnerabilities. Once the vulnerabilities have been found, the opportunity for remediation is clear as crystal.

2: An External Network Penetration Test is the First Step in Security Hardening
An external network penetration test is only the first step to hardening the security of your network’s perimeter. Once your vulnerabilities are apparent, you can effectively and actively stop cyber-criminals in their tracks. Not only does an external network penetration test present you with the opportunity for remediation, but it also reveals any possible point of entry for a cyber-criminal.

3: You are Vulnerable Without an External Network Penetration Test
Without regular network testing (such as an external network penetration test) you may never know when or where an attack may originate and you have no way of stopping it once it has begun. Your network is basically stationary while cyber-criminals are constantly cruising around looking for their next easy score.

4: An External Network Penetration Test Should be Performed by an Expert
InfoSight is an expert when it comes to external network penetration testing. Not only can InfoSight reveal all of the possible vulnerabilities and possible points of entry, but we will provide you with a roadmap to remediation and assist you in the implementation of increased security controls and best practices.
