Given enough time and effort, sophisticated modern-day hackers will find existing weaknesses in your network. That is why we spend time and effort identifying vulnerabilities before hackers can exploit it.
Our network penetration testing uses ethical hacking and controlled exploits to identify weaknesses in your network, so you know your security posture.
Penetration tests go deeper. A traditional vulnerability scan is performed using an automated security scanner that detects patterns and signatures that match a pre-defined set of vulnerabilities. However, scans are not “context-aware,” and are incapable of understanding critical business functions or important security controls.
Dependency on vulnerability scans may result in missing critical security flaws and insecure device configurations. Our manual network pen testing leverages the knowledge provided by vulnerability scanners and goes beyond it to analyze and make decisions on how to best protect your network.
Paladion experts have developed an exhaustive network pentest checklist and process evolving from decades long experience in the industry.
The Network Penetration Process begins with a comprehensive survey of your network including architecture mapping and a complete network scan.
The network pentest process continues with port scanning and war dialing that includes scanning open ports, closed ports, and filtered ports.
After scans are complete, OS fingerprinting is conducted evaluating OS type, patch level, and system type followed by protocol identification.
Once fingerprinting is concluded, a vulnerability scan is completed using automated scanning with access to a vulnerability database, where any vulnerabilities or exploit can be verified.
Using manual verification and password cracking, available exploits are checked and retested if necessary to validate results before reports are produced.
On conclusion of a network penetration test, comprehensive reports are created to provide findings, suggest solutions, and make recommendations.
Paladion’s Testing Labs has over 18 years of experience performing penetration tests for network layers such as firewalls, web servers, email servers, and FTP servers; application layers including all major development languages, all major web servers, all major operating systems, and all major browsers.
