External Penetration Testing

How our External Penetration Testing Works

Attackers can exploit your web facing platforms – such as billing system, franchise portals, mail login portal, SaaS portals, FTP servers, order booking systems etc. Our external penetration service is designed to test the effectiveness of your network perimeter security controls along with capabilities of target to detect and prevent attacks. Our experts can determine your ability to identify weaknesses in your internet-facing systems.

With a periodic evaluation of cyber resiliency of your external facing systems, devices and apps you can establish trust with partner network, clients and employees about safety of their data.

In today’s cyber market, the key issue is the pull of Ultra Low Cost PenTest services. These ultra-low cost PenTest providers don’t go beyond putting your external IP into the automated scanners and pulling out report. The same report is served as findings of Penetration testing project. This automated scanner approach it not reliable as it skips various things. Our team takes it beyond auto scans and checks all possible ways to exploit the vulnerabilities by reducing the false positives.

How our External Penetration Testing Works

Step 1: Kickoff and Scope Agreement

Once we receive the query from your side on app PenTest, we organize a virtual meet or in-person meet at your office to discuss about the goals and deliverables you want. In this meeting the scope will be discussed and finalized. The target completion date (generally 2 weeks) will be fixed along with exclusions from testing.

Step 2: Execution

First, we need to zero in on certain do and don’ts like whether we are allowed to do DDoS or fuzzing on exposed assets.

We then try to test the possibilities to gain access via any weekly configured service, outdated libraries or services, weak credentials or weak credentials mechanism etc.

We will then present the loopholes in your exposed assets in our comprehensive penetration test report. We will categorize the risks into 5 main buckets.
