External Network Penetration Testing

Having a secure environment that is protected from exterior attackers is a continuous battle for many organizations. The methods used by malicious hackers are constantly progressing, and you need tostay a step ahead of these evolving threats. All it takes is one strategic vulnerability for hackers to gain access into your internal network.

An External Penetration Test imitates an actual attacker exploiting vulnerabilities in network security from an external position – likely without credentials or the appropriate rights to system access. This test examines external information security systems for any weakness that may be used to disrupt the confidentiality, availability, or integrity of the network. The test will attack security controls, such as firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, or other implemented application defenses.

Benefits

Many organizations make significant investments to their external security protection. At the conclusion of the External Penetration Test, you will understand the external vulnerabilities of your network based on the recommended Silent Break Security solutions. As a result, your organization will have the decision-making tools necessary to better invest in your external security and mitigate weaknesses.


Additional benefits of the External Penetration Tests include the following:

  • Identifies existing effective network security, such as firewalls; intrusion detection and prevention systems; or implemented application defenses
  • Tests an organization’s external monitoring
  • Tests an organization’s incident response capabilities
  • Meets industry compliance
  • Results in protection from external threats
  • Identifies poor access controls
  • Provides organizational security awareness

Services

Silent Break Security makes use of our extensive experience in penetration testing and security research to uncover previously undisclosed vulnerabilities providing an unparalleled level of security assurance. Silent Break Security mimics an external attacker and exploits vulnerable systems to obtain confidential information via a compromised network perimeter. The objective of the test will be to demonstrate the potential impact of a successful compromise by performing unauthorized data disclosure; misusing, altering, or destroying confidential information; and obstructing network activities. The compromised system will be used as a pivot point to further penetrate the network infrastructure.

A custom test of your internal network security will be developed to meet your organizational goals. Silent Break Security will meet with your organization to discuss the desired outcomes of the test and any specific requirements.


The proven Silent Break Security approach will be used on every test

  • Reconnaissance
  • Plan
  • Exploit
  • Persist
  • Repeat

The test findings will be provided to your organization in a report that has two audiences in mind: the executive and the technical staff. Vulnerabilities and solutions will be clearly outlined for management, and yet, the details required to implement the solutions will be provided for your technical staff.

External Penetration Tests should be performed at least once a year, after any significant application modification, or concurrently with other penetration tests.
