Vulnerability and Penetration Testing

Network security has become increasingly important in recent years as vital data is accessed, stored, and transferred electronically across corporate networks and the internet.  Attempted breaches occur every day through the use of automated bots and targeted attacks, but, without testing the veracity of your network or application’s security, how would you know if your business is susceptible to an intrusion?

Skoda Minotti Risk Advisory Services has developed specific service offerings and methodologies that are extremely effective at accommodating external and application testing requirements. Skoda Minotti Risk Advisory Services' industry-leading best practices and methodologies are based on years of experience and an enterprise-class vulnerability assessment tool which follows key guidelines developed by OWASP, WASC, CLASP and MSDN. The table below illustrates the phases and components typically included.

External Network and Web Application Penetration Testing

An External Network and Web Application Penetration Assessment involves simulating real-world attacks to provide a current view of vulnerabilities and threats to the client's network infrastructure.

These assessments begin with a discovery process that utilizes Nexpose, as well as, publicly available tools and utilities to develop a baseline profile of accessible services, ports and systems as targets for further internal or external penetration testing.

Once a baseline of information is gathered, Skoda Minotti Risk Advisory Services uses Metasploit Pro, as well as a number of tools to perform a more in-depth analysis including manual probing to:

Test identified components to gain access to the network:

  • Network devices such as firewalls, routers, and switches.
  • Network services such as web, dns, email, ftp, etc.
  • Determine possible impact or extent of access by attempting to exploit vulnerabilities.

External Network and Web Application Penetration Testing Provides:

An understanding of real-world risks posed to the organization from the perspective of an attacker, going beyond the limitations of automated scanning.

A prioritized risk rating that takes multiple business-driven criteria into account.
