Internal Penetration Test
Simulate an Attack from Inside the Network
While most networks are reasonably well protected externally, they are not as well defended internally. As a result, they can be easily compromised once an attacker is able to gain a foothold. These attacks have the potential to be more
devastating because insiders already have knowledge of what is important within a network and where it’s located – something external attackers don’t usually know from the start.
An Internal Penetration Assessment is similar to an External Penetration Assessment, but the “attacker” either has some sort of authorized access, or is starting from a point within the internal network. The results typically demonstrate what assets might be exposed to an unauthorized user who has network-level access to your corporate IT environment. The assessment can also help identify the impact of poor access controls as well as mitigate the impact of a malicious or disgruntled employee.
