Methodologies for Pentesting Services

SERVICES - SOLUTIONS - TRAININGS - PENTESTING


These days cyber attacks occur not only in large companies but also in small businesses in countries like Mexico, Brazil, United States, Colombia, Costa Rica, Argentina, UAE, India etc according to the study done by penetration testing services companies. Information security is very important, as the loss or theft of confidential information is a risk that a company cannot afford, however small it is. There are statistical evidences, supported by penetration testing company; which indicate that these cases are very common in smaller businesses, where there are minimal information security controls. Depending on the type of industry, companies can face different kinds of risks/vulnerabilities that can compromise their business goals.
To remain protected against any kind of computer risk, a company has two alternatives. The first alternative is to take the help of penetration testing services experts (pentesting services) and to do a pentest to detect and resolve risks. Second alternative is to train their IT team with penetration testing training course, so that their team can easily understand, detect, and resolve vulnerabilities. The objective of penetration testing services/pentesting services is the preservation of confidentiality, integrity and availability of IT infrastructure. Pentest and penetration testing training courses form an integral part of the information security testing services.
Pentests are usually classified into three types: physical pentest, logical pentest and administrative pentest. According to pentesting/penetration testing services experts, for a pentest to be effective, it must be integrated into the security architecture, which must be in line with business objectives and potential vulnerabilities depending on the impact they have on the company. Therefore, a major step in the implementation of information security architecture is the pentesting phase, which companies can implement via pentesting services or penetration testing courses.
According to a penetration testing training course professor, penetration testing service should consider the following steps:

1. Define IT assets to test.
2. Identify vulnerabilities with the help of internal penetration testing and the external penetration testing.
3. Establish the probabilities of occurrence of vulnerabilities detected during the internal penetration testing and the external penetration testing; that can compromise the security of an IT asset.
4. Calculate the impacts and priorities of vulnerabilities detected during the internal penetration testing and the external penetration testing.
5. At the completion of internal penetration testing and external penetration testing, document the details, impacts and priorities of vulnerabilities.
6. Work with the client team to implement cyber security solutions and resolve the vulnerabilities identified during internal penetration testing and external penetration testing.
7. Redo the internal penetration testing and external penetration testing again to ensure the implementation of the cyber security architecture.

Below you can find the different types of pentesting/penetration testing services.

IT Network Penetration Testing/Pentesting services


IT Network penetration testing services (pentest services) are classified by types of risks. The IT network infrastructure includes wireless, Ethernet and mobile infrastructure. There are two types of IT network penetration testing services.

Internal Network Penetration Testing Services


Internal network penetration testing is also known as internal network security evaluation. Internal network penetration testing service is a critical, systematic and detailed evaluation of IT networks. Generally an internal network penetration testing is done by penetration testing company professionals using established techniques in order to deliver reports and provide recommendations for improving internal network security. The internal network penetration testing is the internal network security evaluation of the security profile of the company from the perspective of an employee or someone with access to systems or from the perspective of a hacker who has gained access to the company’s network. The internal penetration testing allows companies to reduce the risk of an attack by internal employees and implement security architecture in IT networks. As per recommendations from penetration testing company experts, the internal penetration testing service must cover all the new types of internal network attacks and not just test conventional attacks. Moreover business professionals can learn all about internal network penetration testing and new types of attacks during the penetration testing training course.

External Network Penetration Testing Services


External network penetration testing is also known as external network security evaluation. External network penetration testing service is a critical, systematic and detailed evaluation of IT networks. Generally an external network penetration testing is done by penetration testing company professionals using established techniques in order to deliver reports and provide recommendations for improving external network security. The external network penetration testing is the external security evaluation of the IT environment of a company from the perspective of a hacker through the Internet or from someone who does not have access to company’ network. External penetration testing allows companies to identify and fix software vulnerabilities before hackers can compromise confidential information. As per recommendations from penetration testing company experts, the external penetration testing service must cover all the new types of external network attacks and not just test conventional attacks. Moreover business professionals can learn all about external network penetration testing and new types of attacks during the penetration testing training course.

Web Application Penetration Testing Services


Many companies manage software or web applications that don’t include any security checks and a hacker can easily steal business data. With the web application penetration testing services, companies can verify and solve different types of vulnerabilities that may exist in the web applications. Web application penetration testing is a security assessment of web application as per the defined criteria for application security. Web application penetration testing can be classified as manual penetration testing and automated penetration testing of web applications with tools. As per recommendations from penetration testing company experts, the web application penetration testing service must cover all the new types of attacks and not just test conventional attacks. Moreover business professionals can learn how to build a secure web application, how to do a code audit, how to do secure programming, how to do web application penetration testing and new types of attacks during the penetration testing training course.

Cloud Penetration Testing Services


Cloud computing helps companies reduce spending on infrastructure, improved flexibility, globalized work force and much more. But companies are very concerned about the security of their data and who else can access their resources without their knowledge. Penetration testing in cloud environment is also known as cloud security testing. Cloud penetration testing service involves the analysis, evaluation and resolution of vulnerabilities in cloud environment. With the help of cloud penetration testing services, companies can reap the savings that a cloud gives along with security in the cloud environment. In addition this would help company’s customers, as they feel confident in keeping their personal data in the cloud. Penetration testing company must work according to industry best practices for cloud security and penetration testing services should be implemented as recommended by Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and Cyber Defense Council (CDC) methodologies. As per recommendations from penetration testing company experts, the cloud penetration testing service must cover all the new types of attacks and not just test conventional attacks. Moreover business professionals can learn how to secure the cloud, how to audit cloud, how to do penetration testing in the cloud and new types of attacks during the penetration testing training course.

ICS, IACS, SCADA Penetration Testing Services


Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) are equipment used to control industrial environments. These systems are used in energy, manufacturing and critical infrastructure sector such as nuclear plants, power plants, etc. Penetration testing services of SCADA, ICS and IACS environments are also known as critical infrastructure security testing services. Penetration testing services of critical infrastructure involves analysis, evaluation and validation of security of critical infrastructure using SCADA, ICS, IACS systems. Security assessment of SCADA, ICS and IACS systems and penetration testing services help organizations to protect critical infrastructure, as it can be a matter of national security. Penetration testing company must work in accordance with industry best practices for pentesting of critical infrastructure and must collaborate with vendors of SCADA, ICS and IACS systems to fix the discovered vulnerabilities. As per recommendations from penetration testing company experts, the SCADA, ICS and IACS systems penetration testing service must cover all the new types of attacks and not just test conventional attacks. Moreover business professionals can learn how to secure SCADA, ICS and IACS systems, how to do penetration testing of critical infrastructure and new types of attacks during the penetration testing training course.
