Penetration Testing

IT Infrastructure Penetration Testing:

Use IT Assist’s IT Infrastructure Penetration Testing (Pen Test) to identify vulnerabilities and manage risk to your business. Our IT Infrastructure Penetration Test is the best way to independently evaluate your configuration and software vulnerabilities. By combining internal and external assessments, we can check for gaps from within and chinks in your external armour.

Internal Pen Test:

Our IT Assist security consultant will attempt breaches from within your own corporate network, on-site. This test is critical for identifying vulnerabilities that could be exploited by a member of staff, guest or internal corporate espionage agent. The assessment reviews the configuration, access levels and data usage across your entire internal network for risks.

External Pen Test:

While acting remotely, an IT Assist security consultant will attempt to breach your network via external access points. A comprehensive, outside-in approach; our team will test the robustness of your VPN, Firewall, online servers, backups, email servers and data storage. This test is designed to replicate the conditions of an external hacker, with the same access levels and permissions, for a true test of your security measures.

Remote Pen Testing:

By installing a virtual machine or designating a current network workstation for takeover, IT Assist is able to carry out both tests under remote conditions. With these two options, our IT Assist security consultant can operate within your internal network, exactly as if they were on-site. Given the current COVID-19 restrictions, this may be desirable for many organisations.
