Penetration testing, also known as pen testing, aims to identify an organization’s security vulnerabilities through a systematic testing process. A penetration test may focus on your networks, applications, physical facilities, human assets and more.
I What Is Penetration Testing?
A penetration test is a simulated cyber attack against your computer system to check for exploitable vulnerabilities. In the context of web application security, penetration testing is commonly used to augment a Web Application Firewall (WAF)
Pen testing can involve the attempted breaching of any number of application systems, (e.g., application protocol interfaces (APIs), frontend/backend servers) to uncover vulnerabilities, such as unsanitized inputs that are susceptible to code injection attacks.
Insights provided by the penetration test can be used to fine-tune your WAF security policies and patch detected vulnerabilities.
With Rymetec penetration testing, you have one goal to accomplish: Find vulnerable attack surfaces on your application before criminals do. Using industry-standard technologies, our penetration testers can simulate an attack against your:
- Web Applications
- Mobile Applications
- Wireless infrastructure
A web application penetration test identifies weaknesses in your web application, which may be incompletely or poorly integrated into your security environment. Web app penetration testing reveals potential vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and flaws, and provides recommendations for mitigations that can prevent them from being exploited by an attacker
Focused network infrastructure penetration testing aiming to identify the network and system-level flaws such as misconfigurations, product-specific vulnerabilities, wireless network vulnerabilities, rogue services, weak passwords and protocols, and many more.
Wireless penetration testing identifies potential vulnerabilities and weaknesses in your wireless network environment. It attempts to exploit vulnerabilities to gain access to protected wireless SSIDs, or escalate privileges on guest SSIDs intended to be isolated from protected networks. Exploitation creates an understanding of mitigations needed for enhanced security.
I Red Team Penetration Testing Services
Red team penetration testing is the closest thing that exists to a real-world security hack against your systems, however it’s designed to help instead of hurt you. A simulated attack provides the most comprehensive and valuable understanding of how an attacker analyzes, targets, and exploits security vulnerabilities.
