Internal Penetration Testing

Internal testing assesses your infrastructure inside your corporate network; staff computers, servers etc.

The key benefits of internal testing.

Internal testing assesses your infrastructure inside your corporate network, think staff computers, internal servers, printers, etc. Often people think, “well, someone has got to get into my office first” but that is not true. A malicious hacker could gain access to your network by an employee clicking on a link or perhaps a rogue employee or third-party contractor.

An internal test highlights any technical vulnerabilities on your systems but will also identify any employees who may be using weak passwords, or in fact, store passwords unencrypted on their system.

Our tried and tested process, carried out by our industry experts.

Understanding

Our team of ethical hackers works with you to understand all the intricacies of how your business operates and where any risks may be.​

Analysis

We conduct the test using the same tools and techniques that a malicious hacker would use.

Reporting

You'll receive a report highlighting any issues, alongside access to the illume vulnerability management platform.

One size does not fit all

Testing should be a regular occurrence. We work closely with you and your business to determine an appropriate testing frequency to help keep your business secure.

    Frequently asked questions.

    Internal testing assesses your infrastructure inside your corporate network, think staff computers, internal servers, printers, etc. Often people think, “well, someone has got to get into my office first” but that is not true. A malicious hacker could gain access to your network by an employee clicking on a link or perhaps a rogue employee or third-party contractor.

    The penetration test report will contain an executive summary, a route to exploitation, and a vulnerability overview section detailing any vulnerabilities identified throughout the test.

    The length of an internal penetration test is usually defined by how many IP addresses your business uses internally, how many offices you have, and how they are connected. Each test is scoped using these factors to determine an accurate length for your business.

    Due to the nature of what a penetration test entails (attempting to identify and exploit any vulnerabilities), there is a risk of disruption. However, our team of ethical hackers always tries to minimise any potential disruption that may arise from the test.

    A penetration test plays a vital role in having an effective cyber security strategy. A test will highlight any vulnerabilities or issues that are present across your technical infrastructure, as well as any training required for staff. A penetration test will always be a lot cheaper than actually being a victim of a cyber attack.
