Network Penetration Testing Services (Internal & External) | Vumetric

Network
Penetration Testing

Our network penetration testing services identify and fix vulnerabilities within your internal and external networks.

What is Network Penetration Testing?

Network penetration testing is a type of assessment that identifies vulnerabilities within network infrastructures, systems and devices. It can be performed from two distinct perspectives: Targeting networks publicly accessible from the internet or Internal corporate networks. Conducting yearly network penetration tests is required by various standards, such as PCI-DSS, ISO27001 and SOC 2.

Our services will allow you to identify network vulnerabilities of all types such as:

Inadequate security controls

Insecure configuration parameters

Weak encryption protocols

Used software vulnerabilities

Ineffective firewall rules & policies

Unpatched systems and devices

Our Network Penetration Testing Services

Our approach to network penetration testing goes beyond a simple vulnerability scan, which helps identify vulnerabilities and more complex scenarios of exploitation that are impossible to detect with automated tools.

Our Network Penetration Testing Process

1
Project Scoping

A specialist will reach out to determine the components that will be included in your detailed proposal.

2
Penetration Testing

After kickoff, our specialists simulate the attacks used by today's most advanced hackers to identify your vulnerabilities.

3
Report Writing

We document a complete report offering clear and practical advice on how to address each identified vulnerability.

4
Report Presentation

The report is presented to your stakeholders to ensure full comprehension of our findings and recommendations.

Why You Need a Network Penetration Test

With threats constantly evolving, it’s recommended to perform network penetration tests at least once a year or in the following contexts:

Network Pentest Reports With Actionable Recommendations

Get prioritized steps to fix any identified security gaps, from critical to low-risk vulnerabilities.

Executive summary presenting the main findings, recommendations and risk management implications in a clear non-technical language.

List of all identified vulnerabilities prioritized by risk level, according to potential impact and ease of exploitation by an attacker.

Technical details required to properly understand and replicate each vulnerability (e.g.: screenshots, HTTP requests/responses, etc.). Recommendations to mitigate and fix the identified vulnerabilities

At the end of the project, you will be provided with an attestation certifying that penetration tests have been performed by experienced professionals using recognized methodologies and standards. This document will allow you to meet compliance and regulatory reporting requirements efficiently and with minimal overhead.

The price of a penetration test can vary widely according to several factors. For this reason, there is no established price range for this type of assessment. Each project is tailored to your objectives and your technological environment. Many factors must be determined before the cost can be established.

Here are the main factors that can affect the cost of a penetration test:
  • Scope of the project. (Nb. of targeted IPs, Nb. of features in the app, etc.)
  • Performed in a production or development environment.
  • Type of test. (Network, Application, SCADA, etc.)
  • Testing approach. (Automated or manual approach)
  • Objectives. (Compliance, best practices, etc.)

A network pentest is a type of hacking simulation designed to identify cybersecurity vulnerabilities that could be used to compromise sensitive data, gain access to critical systems or even to hijack administrative permissions. Network penetration testing can also target perimeter security controls as well as network devices such as routers and switches.
External penetration testing is performed remotely from the internet, targeting publicly accessible systems such as the network used by your website.

Internal penetration testing, on the other hand, is performed with access to a company’s internal network. It targets systems only accessible internally.

Our penetration test includes a detailed report including all vulnerabilities discovered, the level of risk each vulnerability posed, the difficulty of exploitation and each respective recommended measure.

The information needed to scope a network penetration test is dependent upon whether the assessment is internal or external. Information typically needed to scope network projects includes the total quantity of internal IPs and external IPs to be tested, subnets, and the number of physical locations.

Most of our internal penetration tests are conducted remotely using your infrastructure and technologies in place, such as VPNs or remote desktop solutions. We can also provide various in-house solutions, such as our Vumetric teleporter device, designed to test internal networks.
