Whether you’ve built and deployed state-of-the-art security technology or you’re just starting to assess your security needs, you need to test the effectiveness of your security environment regularly. CRITICALSTART Penetration Testing Services analyze your security posture and determine how exposed your systems, services and data are to malicious actors from external, internal, and web applications.

CRITICALSTART Penetration Testing

  • Reduce risk with an inspection of your networks, devices, applications and users to identify vulnerabilities, and potential compliance or regulation violations.

  • Strengthen your security strategy through highly-targeted point-in-time assessments for web applications, social engineering, mobile applications, wireless networks, IoT devices, and internal and external networks.

  • Improve security controls with a comprehensive post-assessment report identifying specific vulnerabilities and their impact on your organization, including details on the methods used and how to recreate findings.

  • Fine-tune your security program with solutions tailored to your business use cases. Outcomes from the assessments also help you tighten up compliance and regulatory policies and guidelines.

5 Steps to a CRITICALSTART Pen Test

  • 1. Planning/Scoping – Our team meets with you to define your objectives for the penetration test.

  • 2. Reconnaissance (Recon) – We find out as much as we can about your organization and the systems you have running, such as. domains you own IP Addresses, web applications, and vendor technologies you leverage, as well as employees, email address naming schema, and password dumps.

  • 3. Enumeration – We make an itemized list of what is running on your systems to get a better idea of what flaws we need to look at more closely, such as validating network segmentation, to achieve our testing objectives.

  • 4. Discovery/Attack – We perform testing and vulnerability analysis, including initial attacks, evasion, and continued discovery, using testing tools similar to the ones used by criminals. We also leverage our own custom testing tools that are designed to bypass detection.

  • 5. Reporting – We prepare an Executive Summary Report and Full Attack Narrative, which highlights the strengths of your security posture, what defenses worked, what failed, and what areas still need hardening.
