External Infrastrature Penetration Testing

Gibraltars local, regulated Penetration Testing firm.

External Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Your public-facing connected systems are open to the world. On today's internet, over half of all the network traffic is not human. More than 11% of network traffic has a malicious nature. Coupled with 37.2% of all website traffic being bot related, it means you are almost certainly in a state of continual attack.

Why is it important

Our External Infrastructure Penetration Test identifies vulnerabilities and security weaknesses are present. External infrastructure-related weaknesses and vulnerabilities often originate from poor hardware configurations, ineffective system configuration parameters and weak security system controls. Criminals exploit these to gain access to previously private resources.

Our external infrastructure penetration testing service will help you:

  • Gain real-world insight into your vulnerabilities.
  • Identify where inappropriate services that increase your exposure.
  • Identify any missing patches.
  • Identify weak configurations.
  • Harden software and systems.
  • Gain real-world insight into your vulnerabilities.

What the test entails

We will perform a complete infrastructure level penetration testing following the OSSTMM (Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual) and PTES (Penetration Testing Execution Standard) methodologies. These methodologies ensure we identify any weaknesses that could allow an attacker to compromise the network, the data stored within it, or the devices hosted.

One of our CREST certified testers will perform your penetration test. The test will:

  • Conduct a series of automated vulnerability scans.
  • Carry out a range of manual tests using a methodology closely aligned with the OSSTM and PTES methodologies.
  • Provide immediate notification of any critical vulnerabilities to help you act quickly.
  • Produce a detailed report that identifies and explains the vulnerabilities prioritised by the risk posed to your business, not based on CVSS scores.
  • Identify a list of recommended countermeasures to address any identified vulnerabilities.
  • Include an executive summary that explains what the risks mean in business terms.
