The main objective for a network penetration testing is to identify exploitable vulnerabilities in networks, systems, hosts and network devices before hackers are able to discover and exploit them.
SMT Network penetration testing will reveal real-world opportunities for hackers to be able to compromise systems and networks in such a way that allows for unauthorized access to sensitive data or even take-over systems for malicious/non-business purposes.
The SMT network penetration testers can provide suggestions to better protect sensitive data and prevent takeover of systems for malicious purposes.
Benefits from Network Penetration test
- Revealing of misconfiguration in organization’s systems and hosts, that leads to exploits
- Reveal vulnerabilities, SMT Penetration testing explores existing weaknesses in your system or application configurations and network infrastructure.
- Show real risks, SMT penetration testers try to exploit identified vulnerabilities. That means you see what an attacker could do in the ‘real world’
Ensure business continuity, To make sure your business operations are up and running all the time, you need network availability, 24/7 communications and access to resources. And SMT network penetration testing will help in this, because it explores the risks that probably make the network down.
Do you need a network penetration test?
Infact, all organizations need Network penetration testing, because there aren’t any one don’t have a local network, or not exposed to any threat, even if the administrators are patching and updating the systems, but there are some threats come from users behavior
Network security threats
SMT can summarize the Network threat as bellow:
- Computer virus
- Rogue security software
- Trojan horse
- Adware and spyware
- Computer worm
- DOS and DDOS attack
- SQL Injection attack
- Man in the middle attacks
We at SMT present two types of Network penetration testing as bellow:
- Internal Network penetration testing: Involves security evaluation of:
- Internal networks, infrastructure devices and applications including servers, end points etc
- External Network penetration testing: Involves security evaluation of:
- All publicly available network applications such as websites/applications, FTP, etc.
- Network infrastructure devices such as firewall, IDS, routers, switches, etc.
