Think Offensively To Secure Defenses
Any hacker or intruder is always in the search of weak points and vulnerabilities in those information systems to exploit your networks, web applications, systems, and architecture.One of the greatest insights you can get in improving your security program is by knowing your vulnerabilities—and the ways in which attackers could exploit them. Sometimes to prevent your organization from possible breaches, you have to think and act like a hacker.
What Is Penetration Testing?
Penetration testing, also known as pentest or ethical hacking is a simulated cyberattack against your computer systems, networks, and applications to check for exploitable vulnerabilities. It is another form of vulnerability testing performed to analyze the intensity of a malicious attack on the website. A penetration test is performed just the way hackers would attack the website. Penetration testing helps organizations prepare better and safeguard their infrastructure from different kinds of cyberattacks.
What We Do
Fix Any Website offers full-fledged penetration testing services to organizations to help them identify system vulnerabilities, validate existing security measures, and provide a detailed remediation roadmap. Our penetration testing service is the one you need if you want to know how much the malware infection can harm your website. Our engineers can check your website CMS core files and server software for the test of vulnerability. Regardless of the website infrastructure, our penetration testing services can enhance your website performance by examining the website for security breaches to safeguard the potential attacks. Our security engineers will examine your website server manually as well as automatically for precise detection of hazards; this is what makes us one of the best penetration testing companies.
What is the Need for Penetration Testing?
The best way to secure your website from hacking is actually by trying to hack it in every possible way. Penetration testing company performs penetration testing service by simulating hacking attacks on the website to test how vulnerable the website would react to it, which is another way of preventing it from third party attacks. Day after another, new technology emerges, and then IT companies, websites, and servers are put under new threats every day. If your company is working over internet transactions then it is at higher risk. Therefore, it is important to know different tactics of attacking a firewall secured website. It is understood that finding out the weak loop in the system and then securing it with stronger technologies keeps the attacks away. Therefore, while checking for the vulnerability and level of security for the websites, penetration testing comes into need.
External Network Penetration Testing
External network penetration testing is one of the most common types of penetration testing services. We help you identify the most exposed vulnerabilities and security weaknesses in the network infrastructure i.e. servers, firewalls, switches, routers, printers, workstations, and more before they can be exploited by the attackers. We discover potential sources of network attack from where unauthorized access might be gained through internet-connected servers or network equipment by individuals outside of your organization who lack appropriate rights or credentials. We then perform a simulated network attack to test security controls and protect your business from common network-based attacks such as router attacks, DNS level attacks, proxy server attacks, database attacks, etc.
Internal Network Penetration Testing
Since the network infrastructure of your organization could have both external and internal access points, we cover both the aspects to provide complete security solutions for your business. We help your organization alleviate risks due to internal threats. Unlike, external network penetration testing service that involves identifying avenues that remote hackers might use to enter networks, internal network penetration testing service is all about simulating the actions an employee or insider might take to breach your corporate network either through neglect, malice, or the accidental download of an application, such as ransomware or malware, which has the potential to bring an entire network down.
Web Application Penetration Testing
With the growing number of websites and web applications, threats coming from them has also increased drastically. Web applications have become a highly prized target for cybercriminals. By using our web application penetration testing services, you can discover vulnerabilities or security weaknesses in your web-based applications that might have arisen due to insecure development, design, or coding. This pen test is far more intense and detailed. Insecure web applications offer significant points of access to credit card, customer, and financial data that can be conveniently accessed from any location worldwide. We help you secure such critical data by investigating vulnerable points in advance. In order to complete a successful test, we identify all the endpoints of every web-based application that interacts with the user on a regular basis.
Wireless Penetration Testing
Wireless networks of organizations, or in general may be susceptible to a myriad of attacks, depending on the wireless clients, access points, and wireless configurations. Wireless penetration testing service involves identifying and examining the connections between all devices connected to the client’s wifi. The list of wireless devices to be tested includes laptops, tablets, smartphones, iPads, and any other IoT devices. This pen test is performed on the client’s site as our pen tester needs to be in the range of the wireless signal to access it. We bring advanced expertise in a range of wireless technologies to perform threat assessment and security control audits for traditional Wi-Fi and specialized systems. We investigate and identify potential access points where hackers could enter your internal wireless network.
Social Engineering Penetration Testing
More often than not cybercriminals are successful at breaching a network infrastructure through social engineering rather than traditional network exploitation. Thus, it is very important to verify the “Human Network” of your organization. Rather than finding exotic backdoor vulnerabilities and resorting to high-tech tools, attackers usually manipulate or trick employees into providing sensitive information, such as a username and password.
Social engineering penetration testing involves mock phishing attacks or password update requests. We survey your organization to see how well your employees understand information security policies and practices so that you can know how easily attackers might trap your employees into sharing confidential information. We then provide remediation training to help employees better protect sensitive data and inform users of the most current cyber attacks and how to avoid them.
Penetration testing helps you discover the existing weaknesses in your system or application configurations and network infrastructure before the third party hackers do. It also allows monitoring the actions and habits of your employees that could lead to data breaches and malicious infiltration. The penetration test report notifies you of your security vulnerabilities so that you can understand what software and hardware improvements you need to implement or what security policies would improve the overall security of your business infrastructure.
Manage the Risk Properly
Identifying risks and mitigating them is one of the most popular benefits of penetration testing services. This helps organizations form a baseline to work upon to cure the risk in a structured and optimal way. A penetration test reveals the list of vulnerabilities and the risks associated with it. After evaluating the risks, they can be reported as High/ Medium/ Low-risk issues. This risk management will allow you to tackle the highest risks first, and then others.
Ensure Business Continuity
For any successful organization, business continuity is a prime concern. Any disruption in business continuity can harm their business. To ensure business operations are up-and-running all the time, one requires network availability, 24/7 communications, and access to resources. By penetration testing, you can fix security loopholes, neutralize potential threats, and ensure that your business operations don’t suffer from unexpected downtime or a loss of accessibility.
Test Your Cyber-Defense Capability
During a penetration test, you should be able to detect attacks and respond accordingly on time. Once you detect an intrusion, the security and forensic teams should start investigations, discover the penetration testers, and block them. Meanwhile, the effectiveness of your protection devices like IDS, IPS, or WAF also gets tested during a pen test. If your cyber-defense is high and in place then attacks should be automatically detected and alerts should be generated so that the concerned individuals can take necessary actions. The feedback from the pen test will tell you what actions can be taken to improve your defense against a variety of attacks.
Compliance with Regulation or Security Certification
If you hire a renowned penetration testing company, it will comply with industry-standard security regulations like ISO 27001 or PCI. This compliance with regulation or security certification requires all managers and system owners to conduct regular (after every six months) penetration tests and security reviews, undertaken by competent testers.
Protect Clients, Partners, and Third-Parties
A security breach not only affects your organization but also the associated clients, partners, and third-parties working with you. However, if you opt for penetration testing services regularly and take significant actions towards security, it will help professionals build trust and confidence in your organization. This also helps in maintaining company reputation.
1. Planning/ Pre-attack phase: The first step involves defining the scope and goals of a test, including the systems to be addressed and the testing methods to be used. We then gather intelligence i.e. network, domain names, and mail server to better understand how a target works.
2. Scanning: The next step in penetration testing is to understand how the target application will respond to various intrusion attempts. We do this using static and dynamic analysis. In static analyses, we inspect an application’s code to estimate the way it behaves while running. Whereas, in dynamic analysis, we inspect an application’s code in a running state that provides a real-time view of an application’s performance.
3. Testing: Once we are all ready to exploit the discovered network vulnerabilities, our pen testers begin working to attack the network and extract confidential information, just like any hacker would do. We breach networks and web applications to gain access to privileged information.
4. Analysis & Reporting: Analyzing the test results and reporting is critical to the success of the penetration testing assessment. The final report of the penetration test includes specific vulnerabilities that were exploited, sensitive data that was accessed, and the amount of time the pen tester was able to remain in the system undetected. This helps organizations get an idea of the potential risk they are currently facing.
