Internal & External Network Penetration Testing Security and the Internet of Things (IoT)

 

 

Network Penetration Service

 

When offering network penetration testing services, it’s important to provide a comprehensive and effective solution that meets your clients’ needs. Here are some key aspects to consider for the best network penetration testing services offering:


  • Scope and Methodology: Clearly define the scope of your testing, including the systems, applications, and network components to be assessed. Outline the methodology you follow, such as reconnaissance, vulnerability scanning, exploitation, and post-exploitation analysis.

  • External and Internal Testing: Offer both external and internal network penetration testing to assess the security of your clients’ networks from different perspectives. External testing focuses on the network perimeter, while internal testing evaluates internal systems and potential insider threats.

  • Wireless Network Testing: Include wireless network penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities in Wi-Fi networks, including weak encryption, unauthorized access points, and misconfigurations.

  • Social Engineering Testing: Provide social engineering testing as part of your services to assess the human element of security. This can involve phishing simulations, physical intrusion attempts, or other techniques to test your clients’ employees’ awareness and response to social engineering attacks.

  • Application and Web Service Testing: Incorporate application and web service testing into your network penetration testing services to assess vulnerabilities in specific software and web applications that may be connected to the network.

  • Threat Modeling: Offer a threat modeling component where you work closely with clients to identify potential threats and prioritize their impact on the network. This helps tailor the penetration testing activities to focus on the most critical areas.

  • Reporting and Recommendations: Provide comprehensive reports that clearly outline identified vulnerabilities, their potential impact, and recommended remediation measures. Include actionable recommendations and best practices to help clients improve their network security.

  • Ongoing Support: Offer post-testing support and consultation to assist clients in implementing remediation measures, addressing vulnerabilities, and improving their overall security posture. This can include guidance on security controls, configuration changes, and incident response planning.

  • Compliance and Regulatory Considerations: Ensure your network penetration testing services comply with relevant industry regulations and standards, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, or GDPR, depending on your clients’ specific requirements.    

By offering a well-rounded and thorough network penetration testing service, you can help your clients identify and mitigate vulnerabilities, strengthen their network security, and enhance their overall resilience against cyber threats.


According to a recent report by the Ponemon Institute, insider threats continue to be a significant concern for organizations, with 62% of the respondent  reporting that they experienced at least one insider attack in the past year. The report also noted that the cost of insider attacks has increased, with the average cost per incident reaching $11.45 million.


Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming entire industries, creating tremendous benefits but also introducing new risks. The security risks surrounding IoT software and applications are snowballing as organizations rush to get devices to the marketplace or into use within the enterprise as soon as possible.

To ensure the safe and reliable operation of billions of IoT-connected devices, organizations must implement IoT security solutions. With over 20 years as a leader in software security, Singtrade is uniquely positioned to adapt and apply software security best practices to your IoT development initiative, or to help you assess your risk exposure to IoT products within your business.

 

Why hackers are breaking into IoT devices

Many IoT devices are connected to otherwise secure networks (such as those at large businesses) without the organization fully understanding the scope of the security issue these devices create. This knowledge gap is dangerous because

• What makes IoT devices smart and able to interoperate with other devices is software.

• If the software on a device was not designed to be secure, it will contain 

vulnerabilities that attackers can exploit to gain access to the device.

• If attackers infiltrate a device, not only can they access data on that device, but they 

can also pivot to reach other connected targets on the network, including the backend application server.

 

Same context, different rules

More and more industries are building IoT devices. But many organizations don’t know how to make the software on those devices secure. Fortunately, the fundamentals of software security are the same no matter where the software lives. The experts at Synopsys know how to adapt these security fundamentals to the unique features of the IoT ecosystem to help you get up to speed quickly and achieve a greater maturity level.

Get Started Here
 

To request a of  IoT device  penetration testing. We will get back to you within 1-2 days with a proposed plan, terms of the service and payment details.

With this fixed rate security assessment testing is conducted, with report delivered within 7-10 days.

Client Requirements:

  1. You must be the owner of the system or have explicit permission to have a third party security assessment performed against the target system.
  2. A working backup of the target system is strongly recommended. Security testing is inherently intrusive and while the chance of anything bad happening is very low, there is always the chance that a system could be adversely impacted by the testing.

Deliverables:

  • Detailed Security Report delivered within 7days.
  • Report to contain validated (manually confirmed) results and recommended remediation.
  • Follow up questions to be conducted via email.
