What is network penetration testing

A network penetration test identifies vulnerabilities in applications and systems using malicious techniques to evaluate the network’s security or lack of responses.
Similar to vulnerability assessments, a network penetration test, also known as a pen test, aims to exploit vulnerabilities identified in a network.
However, unlike a vulnerability assessment, a penetration test simulates a potential attack on harder to find vulnerabilities in a network.

SecuriCentrix penetration testers have extensive network penetration testing experience, helping organisations identify exposures across on-premises and cloud environments.

Types of network penetration testing

Network penetration testing, or Infrastructure penetration testing, can be performed either inside or outside your organisation’s network perimeter.

Internal network penetration testing

An internal network pen test is performed to gauge what an attacker could achieve with initial access to a network. An internal network pen test can mirror insider threats, intentionally or unintentionally performing malicious actions or an attacker inside your network.

External network penetration testing

An external network pen test tests the effectiveness of perimeter security controls to prevent and detect attacks and identify weaknesses in internet-facing assets such as web, mail and FTP servers.

Our approach to infrastructure pen testing

A  network pen test follows a tried and tested methodology to identify, exploit and help address vulnerabilities. Here’s how we approach an external network assessment:
