PENETRATION TESTING

Penetration testing serves as a versatile tool for assessing a wide array of security controls, encompassing the evaluation of network and network device configurations, application security, and endpoint security.
Penetration testing, often referred to as "pen testing" or "ethical hacking," is the practice of probing the security of a computer system, network, or web application through simulated attacks, replicating the tactics of malicious actors. The primary objective of pen testing is to unearth vulnerabilities and weaknesses that might be exploited by potential attackers and offer recommendations to enhance security.
At 9Tek, we maintain a red team of experts who replicate the actions of real-world attackers to evaluate an organization's security posture. The aim of red teaming is to pinpoint vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could be targeted by actual attackers and provide suggestions for bolstering security.
At 9Tek, we provide a range of methods for conducting penetration tests, which include:
  • Black box testing.
  • White box testing.
  • Gray box testing.
  • Compliance reporting.
  • Infrastructure Penetration Testing
  • Applicative Penetration Testing
  • Cloud Penetration Testing.
The delivery of SIEM services can be on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid model, contingent upon the organization's particular requisites.

BLACK BOX TESTING

This type of testing, in which the tester is unaware of the system or network under examination, is typically a process that may require approximately 8 to 9 weeks to conclude.

WHITE BOX TESTING

The tester possesses comprehensive familiarity with the system or network undergoing testing. This activity is expected to be completed in approximately 3 to 4 weeks.

GRAY BOX TESTING

This method combines elements of both black and white box testing and involves having limited awareness of the internal infrastructure. It typically spans approximately 6 weeks to reach completion.

INFRASTRUCTURE PENETRATION TESTING

In this scenario, the tester utilizes contemporary intrusion techniques and lateral movement strategies to assess and manipulate an organization’s computerized systems. This approach encompasses the integration of various attack vectors based on MITRE guidelines.

APPLICATIVE PENETRATION TESTING

This involves the examination and reporting of web interfaces, internal and external portals, as well as servers. The testing process aims to assist developers and teams in addressing security vulnerabilities.

CLOUD PENETRATION TESTING

Numerous organizations utilize cloud-based services, often across multiple cloud platforms, and cloud penetration testing plays a vital role in thoroughly assessing the level of security hardening.
