What is External Penetration Testing?

External penetration testing is a type of assessment designed to identify and fix vulnerabilities within publicly accessible network infrastructures by replicating the same techniques used by hackers. External network infrastructures are among the most targeted components by hackers. This is why experts recommend to perform external assessments at least once a year or following any major changes to the infrastructure to stay on top of the latest cyber threats. Conducting an extternal penetration test is also required by various standards, such as PCI-DSS, ISO27001, and SOC 2.

Why Test Your External Network?

Cyberattacks on external networks represent 30% of all cyber threats faced by organizations. Bots and hackers are continuously probing the public internet for vulnerable entry points, which makes your external networks the most important asset to protect to prevent incidents. An external penetration test will allow your organization to answer the following:

Are my systems up to date and properly configured?

Have I successfully secured every service exposed on the internet?

Is my confidential data properly secured or publicly accessible?

Could a ransomware infiltrate my network from the internet?

Does my firewall intercept common hacking attempts?

etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Penetration testing is essential to any business, but it remains a complex subject and choosing a good provider can be challenging. The following FAQ answers the most frequently asked questions to help you make an informed decision.

Penetration tests can be performed to meet various objectives. Meeting regulatory requirements (PCI, SOC2, etc.) and securing systems from cyberattacks following recent changes are among the most common use cases of pentesting.

The cost of a penetration test varies significantly according to a number of factors. For this reason, there is no established price range for this type of assessment. Each project is tailored to your objectives and your environment. To find out how much your penetration test would cost, reach out to our specialists to get a free quote.

Manual penetration tests and fully automated scanners are the most common techniques to identify and fix cybersecurity vulnerabilities within your technologies. While many similarities exist between the two, they are often misinterpreted as the same thing, although they yield very different results.

Every professional in the industry agrees that cyber risks cannot be sufficiently mitigated by relying on automated scans alone. It can be a great starting point for those who lack the resources to undergo frequent manual tests, but should not be your only resort to test your cybersecurity.

Upon completion of the test, your company receives a report detailing all of the findings. This document is broken down in several sections that are relevant for various stakeholders. A professional penetration testing report should always present the following items:

  • An executive summary that outlines the findings in a clear and concise language. This section should be easily understood by your non-technical staff and acts as a key component of your risk management strategy.
  • Vulnerability listing prioritized by risk level. 
  • Technical details of the identified vulnerabilities including their potential impact if exploited and supporting evidence (screenshots, HTTP requests, etc.).
  • Actionable recommendations to fix each identified vulnerability.
  • External references to facilitate the implementation of the recommended corrective measures.
