External Network Penetration Test

An external penetration test evaluates your public-facing systems for vulnerabilities, emulating a real-world attacker’s approach to potentially compromise network security.

Internal Network Penetration Test

An internal penetration test simulates an insider threat to identify and exploit network vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, aiming for unauthorized access, privilege elevation, lateral movement, and potential full network compromise.

Wireless Network Penetration Testing

A wireless penetration test identifies and exploits vulnerabilities in corporate wireless networks, mimicking a nearby threat actor’s attempts at unauthorized access.

Web Application Penetration Testing

A web application penetration test evaluates applications for vulnerabilities, using both unauthenticated and authenticated perspectives, to prevent unauthorized access. Testing is based on the Open Worldwide Application Security Project (OWASP) methodology.

Mobile Application Penetration Testing

A mobile application penetration test evaluates the application’s security, focusing on source code, authentication functions, data storage, and backend system interactions. Testing is based on the Open Worldwide Application Security Project (OWASP) methodology.

API Penetration Testing

An API (Application Programming Interface) penetration test evaluates the security of application functions and methods, checking for potential authorization and authentication bypasses and leakage of sensitive information Testing is based on the Open Worldwide Application Security Project (OWASP) methodology.

Social Engineering
(Phishing and Vishing)

Social engineering tests simulate phishing emails and phone pretexting (vishing) attempts to identify your employee’s susceptibility to information solicitation including but not limited to credentials, employee information, and other sensitive information.

Red Team

Red teaming is testing that assists organizations in identifying and remediating vulnerabilities in their overall cybersecurity program. The testing process incorporates simulating realistic attack scenarios to identify weaknesses in the organizational attack surface and assess the efficacy of established security controls.

Purple Team

Purple teaming combines offensive testing (red team) with collaborative work alongside an organization’s security team (blue team). This involves using real-world attack tactics, techniques, and procedures to evaluate the organization’s defenses. The engagement resul
