What is infrastructure penetration testing?

Infrastructure penetration testing, also known as pentesting, is an essential part of an organisation's cybersecurity needs.

Even with the best security software and defence systems in place, astute hackers with malicious intent may still be able to access your network.

When to conduct infrastructure penetration testing?

You can never perform too many infrastructure penetration tests, however, an annual network penetration test is usually adequate.

However, some situations call for more frequent penetration testing such as when your plan to:

  • MCSL

    Develop custom applications

  • MCSL

    Upgrade or install new infrastructure or applications

  • MCSL

    Install or update security patches

  • MCSL

    Modify internal end-user policies and procedures

  • MCSL

    Comply with industry security standards

  • MCSL

    Compete for lucrative corporate contracts

  • MCSL

    Enhance business growth through mergers or acquisitions

  • MCSL

    Launch innovative products or services

  • MCSL

    Relocate or expand business offices locations

This is a crucial first step as it lays out the criteria, test parameters and measurable deliverables of the test. We thoroughly consult your tech teams on all levels to understand your requirements and perceived threats. This information then guides our action plan to achieve the desired outcomes and goals.

During the information gathering stage, we conduct an in-depth investigation of your systems and the procedures your current security measures react to breaches. By understanding the workings of your internal and external networks, we can identify critical weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

As we perform internal penetration testing, we gather information such as your network topology, employee credentials, physical entry points to servers, organisational structure, and your current cybersecurity systems.

External pen testing involves looking for issues that include flaws in your firewall and collecting the domain names of web and email servers as well as any public IPs. We also analyse your company website for opportunities for SQL injection and the level of DDoS protection. Because this recon is time-consuming, the sooner you begin using pen testing services, the sooner you will be protected.

After the reconnaissance stage, our pen-test team has a good idea of the vulnerabilities in your system. These are the weak points we will exploit during the actual test stage.

Through event visualisation and analysis, we then decide on the most effective tools to infiltrate your systems and communicate how such actions will affect your systems during the test period. We aim to cause minimal disruption; therefore, there needs to be a documented agreement between IT department heads and pentest teams.

This is the point at which the pen-test team will infiltrate the infrastructure and exploit the vulnerabilities identified during scanning. We test the response of your defence software and in-house security systems.

We also test how easy it is to escalate and grant maximum privileges and how deep a hacker can go into the system. This is a crucial part of any pentesting service as it gives the business a clear picture of the consequences of a breach.

Finally, our security team analyses the penetration test results and fully describe the testing process. This is probably the most important step that involves remediation and customised reporting that includes findings, such as:

  • MCSLVulnerabilities discovered during the reconnaissance stage
  • MCSLNetwork penetration testing tools and methods used to successfully gain access to the system
  • MCSLPrivileges acquired and level of infiltration
  • MCSLIncident response measures from existing security systems
  • MCSLAmount of time taken to breach the network
  • MCSLPossible repercussions to the organisation if a similar attack was executed

Penetration testing is a type of security testing that is used to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by simulating an attack from an external or internal threat. A penetration test exploits the vulnerabilities further to discover the impacts on the systems.

Types of penetration testing include black box testing, white box testing, gray box testing, application testing, network testing, web application testing, and wireless testing and plenty more. You can find more details here

The purpose of penetration testing is to identify security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker, as well as identify weaknesses in an organisation’s security policies and procedures.

Organisations should conduct penetration tests on a regular basis, typically at least once a year.

A vulnerability assessment is a tool used to identify potential risks and weaknesses in an organisation’s security posture. A penetration test is a more thorough and in-depth analysis that is used to assess the security of an organisation’s systems and networks.

In order to conduct a penetration test, you need to have a thorough understanding of network security, apps and cloud environments and know how to use security tools and techniques.

Penetration testing can uncover a variety of information, such as open ports, weak passwords, unpatched vulnerabilities, system misconfigurations, and weak authentication mechanisms.

Penetration testing can help to identify security weaknesses that could be exploited by an attacker, as well as alert organisations to potential risks and vulnerabilities.

The risks associated with penetration testing include potential damage to systems, disruption of services, and disclosure of sensitive information. The likelihood of this is less than 0.10% as it’s performed in a controlled environment.

Common tools and techniques used in penetration testing include port scanning, vulnerability scanning, social engineering, exploitation, and privilege escalation.

The cost of a penetration test will depend on the scope and complexity of the test.

The duration of a penetration test will vary depending on the scope and complexity of the test, but typically it can take anywhere from 5 days on a simple web app testing to 15 days on a more complex app with multiple user roles and financial transactions. This includes reporting.

The scope of the penetration testing report is dependent on the specific requirements of the client. It will typically include a detailed assessment of the network, systems, and applications for security vulnerabilities.

The report will include information such as the security vulnerabilities found, the steps taken to exploit them, screenshots, POCs and any recommendations for improving the security of the system. Full sample report can be found here Download

Techniques used to evaluate system weaknesses will include manual and automated methods such as port scanning, vulnerability scanning, exploitation and more.

The time frame for completing the report will depend on the size and complexity of the system, but typically it can take anywhere from 2 to 3 days.

The expected outcome of the report is to identify security vulnerabilities and provide recommendations to mitigate them.

The results of the testing will be communicated to the client in the form of a written report and a via our live dashboard.

The process for follow-up and remediation of any vulnerabilities identified in the report will involve working with the client to develop and implement a plan to address the identified issues. We have post report call or an onsite meeting as needed. This can also include management/ board presentation for free.

Sensitive data will be handled in accordance with the client’s requirements and industry best practices for security. we are ISO27001, ISO9001 in addition to being CREST and CE plus certified. We take data security and privacy seriously.

Security measures taken to protect the testing environment will include strong authentication, encryption, and other measures to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the data.

The results of the testing will be documented in the report and any additional documentation requested by the client. We provide trend history reports, summary reports, online dashboard in addition to the usual pdf reports.
