Penetration Testing Services from Infosec Partners


How good are your defences
against an intruder attack?

A security penetration test is a controlled and managed simulation of an actual system intrusion. It gives you a realistic experience of an attempted break-in – whether from an outside intruder or from your employee or business partner. During InfoSec Partners penetration testing, your security mechanisms as well as your intrusion detection and response capabilities are put to the test against a skilled attacker.

Penetration Testing Goals

  • Audit the effectiveness of controls to meet compliance
  • Red team testing (ethical hacking) is designed to measure how well an organisations defence and response capabilities will stand up against attacks from a simulated real-life adversary

Infosec Partners provides a full spectrum of security penetration testing to meet your goals.

We help you make sure any security gaps
we find are closed

Infosec Partners provides a flexible portfolio of security testing services, resulting in reports and recommendations that executive management as well as technicians can all gain the information they need.

Pen test reports summarise the potential impacts and business consequences of exploitation of any discovered vulnerabilities, whilst cost effective strategies to mitigate risk are presented. For the more technical audience, carefully crafted examples are used to illustrate how vulnerabilities can be exploited, or reproduced in a test-bed and are provided with detailed remediation instructions.

Infosec Partners includes re-tests on found vulnerabilities to ensure that the client’s internal team or primary outsource partner has successfully completed remediation.

Types of Penetration Test

Penetration tests can be conducted in several ways. The most common difference is the amount of knowledge of the implementation details of the system being tested that are available to the testers. Black box penetration testing assumes no prior knowledge of the infrastructure to be tested. The testers must first determine the location and extent of the systems before commencing their analysis.

At the other end of the spectrum, white box penetration testing provides the testers with complete knowledge of the infrastructure to be tested, often including network diagrams, source code, and IP addressing information.

Black box testing simulates an attack from someone who is unfamiliar with the system. White box testing simulates what might happen during an “inside job” or after a “leak” of sensitive information, where the attacker has access to source code, network layouts, and possibly even some passwords.

Gray box testing is a combination of white box testing and black box testing. The aim of this test is to discover defects resulting from improper structure or improper use of applications.

    Plug The Gaps

    Spotlight any existing weaknesses in your system configurations and network infrastructure, as well as any bad practices by your staff that could lead to data breaches, malicious infiltration, or worse. Findings help you make informed amendments to your security controls, and provide recommended options to plug these security gaps.

    Ensure Continuity

    Network availability, 24/7 communications, and customer or user access to the resources you provide are essential to your business operations. Any disruption to this continuity (say, a data breach, or Denial of Service attack) will have a negative impact on your operations and your bottom line. Penetration testing can throw up potential threats to all these areas, and help ensure that your business doesn’t suffer from unanticipated downtime or inaccessibility issues.

    Meet/Maintain Compliance

    Regulatory and legal requirements dictate that a certain level of pen testing is compulsory. For example, the ISO 27001 standard requires all managers and system owners to conduct regular penetration tests and security reviews, using competent testers. PCI DSS also demands penetration testing for relevant systems.

    Maintain Trust

    Falling victim to a cyber-assault or data breach is a sure-fire way to lose the confidence and loyalty of your customers, suppliers, and partners – especially if the damage affects them, personally. But being known as an organisation that regularly conducts security reviews and penetration testing can effectively reassure all stakeholders that their data, transactions, and your business are all sound.

    Enhance Quality Assurance

    If your organisation deals in software, consumer goods, or other products dependent on a strong IT infrastructure to drive innovation and development, a secure production environment subjected to regular pen testing will enhance your standing in the market, and assure your buyers of a consistent and high standard.

    Improve Overall Defences

    Penetration testing is a powerful weapon in your security arsenal; it’s an ideal training tool for network security personnel, and their automated security systems and software. But it shouldn’t be relied on in isolation. Instead, pen testing should be employed as part of a suite of measures including updates and security patches for operating systems, Web browsers, and office software, user education, security software provision, threat intelligence, and the drafting of strong policies.
