Infrastructure penetration test
Infrastructure penetration test utilises a risk-based approach to manually identify critical infrastructure vulnerabilties that exist on all network-accessible services.
Infrastructure penetration testing is the industry standard way of assessing the security of individual systems or whole networks. The very essence of the term ‘ethical hacking’, is where Portcullis takes a controlled, repeatable and safe approach to external (Internet based) and internal testing. The methodology used ensures that the results issued to clients are complete, correct and fairly judged in the context of the network under review.
There is a strong commitment to working with clients to help set a scope that achieves the required standards without breaking the bank. Furthermore, we continually look to add value throughout the scoping process; suggesting small additions to scope that can add significant value and similarly highlighting opportunities to reduce scope without impact the overall value delivered. Given the breadth of skills in the business, Portcullis actively looks beyond penetration testing throughout projects. Penetration testing isn’t the only way to measure security and we’re keen to highlight cheaper or better approaches, including those the client can perform independently.
There is no point in doing any assurance work if it doesn’t improve the security of the network under review. Significant emphasis is placed on clear reporting for all; from the boardroom to the server room. Furthermore, for those organisations struggling to remediate issues, Portcullis offers short-term support to devise remediation plans, implement changes and long-term strategies to reduce the likelihood of such issues in the future.
Why perform a infrastructure penetration test?
- To execute a real-world attack on infrastructure and understand the level of risk that exists at a single moment in time.
- To better identify and validate all security vulnerabilties associated with your Internet-facing environment.
- To understand the level of risk for your organization compared to similar companies.
