PENETRATION TESTING

Today’s cyberthreats extend beyond the most common protection measures and even beyond regulatory requirements. Stakeholders often find themselves under great pressure to protect their organizations against DDoS attacks, phishing, malware, ransomware, and the even greater threat of piracy and terrorism. If left unnoticed, all of the abovementioned threats pose significant risks to ongoing commercial operations, revenues, the company’s brand representation, reputation, and value.

Organizations are constantly inundated by the latest ‘buy me now’ tools and technologies, all offering a promise of prevention or cure. However, penetration testing still remains one of the most realistic, practical, and popular tools, which is proven to strengthen cybersecurity defenses.

In principle, Penetration Testing (PenTest) also referred to as Ethical hacking reveals an organization’s potential vulnerability to cyberattacks. It provides recommendations on how security can subsequently be strengthened and maintained to mitigate or eliminate future threats and risks.

Our experience as specialists and our approach to penetration tests are tailored to suit each client’s unique needs and vulnerabilities. Something which allows us to shorten the time required to conduct penetration tests, in addition to reducing cost.

BLACK-BOX TESTING

We put ourselves in the role of the average hacker, with no internal knowledge of the target system. Our goal is to assess conventional vulnerabilities from outside the secure perimeter.

GREY-BOX TESTING

The penetration tester has limited knowledge of the (to be) attacked system, typically that of an average use of the system with some elevated privileges. Thus, the tester is enabled to focus their assessments on the systems with higher value rather than working to identify these in advance. As a recognized system user, the penetration tester is able to test security inside the perimeter – simulating an attacker with longer-term access to the network.

WHITE-BOX TESTING

also known as clear-box, open-box and logic-driven testing

The tester has in-depth knowledge of the target system and is able to use code analyzers, debuggers, and other specialist tools, thus having information related to both vessel and shore sides such as schema, source code, OS details, and IP addresses. From then on they can run a comprehensive assessment of both internal and external system-wide vulnerabilities.

NETWORK SERVICES TESTING

Specifically aimed at attacking servers, individual computers, network printers, and security devices such as routers and firewalls.

WIRELESS NETWORK TESTING

Often provided by a company to offer greater flexibility to staff and visitors, but also enabling the greater potential for attack, through rogue access points and weak security algorithms. We evaluate aspects such as information leakage, session hacking, and wireless sniffing.

WEB APPLICATION TESTING

Identifying cyberattack vectors used by threat actors to compromise web applications, hosting infrastructure and managed data.

SOCIAL ENGINEERING TESTING

Evaluating employee’s susceptibility to social engineering attacks through phishing email campaigns, spear-phishing emails, over-the-phone attacks (vishing), SMS attacks (smishing), as well as through physical impersonation and verbal intimidation.

CLIENT-SIDE TESTING

also known as internet testing

Discover vulnerabilities in client-side software and endpoint devices, such as smartphones and tablets.

SEGMENTATION TESTING

The proper usage of networks and their segmentation. To ensure that less secure networks within an organization do not compromise high-secure networks.
