About Penetration Testing and Red Team attack

A red team attack utilizes the art of discovering, arming, and exploiting of weaknesses and vulnerabilities. The activity begins with reconnaissance activities, external and internal asset discovery, mapping of key personnel and building a multi vector attack structure.

While a red team attack is focused on an entire organization, a penetration test targets a specific asset in the network, web applications, processes, devices or people.

A penetration test takes the perspective of an outside hacker or an internal individual with malicious intent. This may not always involve technology; however, technical controls are a big part of preventing data compromise, exploitation and damages.

Why should you conduct a penetration test?

Even with the strongest IT and Cyber Security in place, existing vulnerabilities expose your company to imminent risks. Those gaps might be as unsuspecting as a database, an application, website access or even companies’ employees.

Any of those focal points may provide a direct access into confidential data such as financials, patient information, strategic or classified documents.

Pentest services dive deeper to pinpoint pathways to access, ranking the potential value of each and providing a clear road map for ongoing security. A penetration test is not only smart business practise but also an annual requirement for those who must remain in compliance with leading regulations like PCI, FERPA, HITECH, FISMA, SOX, GLBA, FATCA an GDPR.


External Penetration Testing

We pinpoint potential vectors of cyber-attack where access might be gained through Internet facing servers or network equipment by individuals outside of the organization who like appropriate tribes or credentials.


Infrastructure Penetration Testing

We help companies mitigate risk due to internal threats against their corporate network. While external testing investigates vectors that remote hackers might use to enter networks.


Application Penetration Testing

We investigate potential threats and vulnerabilities posed by the many Internet-based applications in use throughout your enterprise. Conveniently accessed from any location worldwide and just as easily breached.


Wireless and RF Penetration Testing

We bring advanced expertise in a range of RF (“wireless”) technologies, offering ethical hacking services to investigate and identify potential access points where hackers could enter your internal network. This involves threat assessment and security control audits for traditional Wi-Fi and specialised systems as one.


Social Engineering Penetration

We survey the employees to see how well they understand your organization’s information security policies and practises, so you know how easily an unauthorized party might convince staff into sharing confidential information. Social engineering penetration testing might include badge access points and mock phishing attacks.


Supply Chain Penetration Testing

Supply chain attacks have been a concern for cyber-security experts for many years because the chain reaction triggered by one attack on a single supplier can compromise a network of providers, and the enterprise itself. According to ENISA report – threat landscape for supply chain attacks which analyzed 24 recent attacks.

Integrated red team (the full picture)

We dedicate skilled red team to conduct a full scale “APT attack”, testing the enterprise from all above-mentioned vectors, in an integrated combined manner. We then compile findings into a cyber-security assessment report complete with recommendations you can put into place to mitigate damage.


Penetration Testing Report

We provide a detailed report on findings and results, giving the enterprise an overall snapshot of the security posture. Pentest reports are customized to help each organisation meet their initial objectives and tailored to their own industry and regulatory environment.

Included in our report is an executive C-level summary, and a detailed technical review around each penetration test along with the overall risk score. Know the probability, strength and estimated damage potential of an attack along with controls currently in place to obstruct the event. Ensure requisite steps are taken to comply with PCI, FERPA, GLBA, SOX, HIPAA or GDPR.

You’ll also gain actionable insight and recommendations to reduce your risk in the short-, mid-, and long-term. Our report shall provide an estimation of the costs, resources and time-lines estimation to successfully apply our recommendations.
