Infrastructure Penetration Security Testing

OVERVIEW

Infrastructure security is the cumulative security assessment of applications, servers and the network of the organisation. Kratikal offers specific testing services to perform the comprehensive risk assessment services to various organisations. It includes a combination of the following services:

  • Web Application Security
  • Mobile Application Security
  • Server Security
  • Network Security
  • Firewall, IDS, IPS Security
  • Switches and Routers Security

ADVANTAGES

Comprehensive risk assessment of the entire IT Infrastructure of the organisation.

Strategic planning to minimise impact on day to day activities of the firm.

Reduce the risk of cyberattacks by over 90%

Ensure 85% compliance to standards like ISO27001, COBIT etc.



HOW IT WORKS

We follow universal testing standards like OWASP, OSSTMM and SANS for comprehensive security assessments.


Information Gathering:
In this stage we perform detailed reconnaissance about the network, its architecture, firewall configurations and other related intelligence. Automated scanners are used to simulate black-box testing environment.

Planning and Analysis:
Based on the information collected in the previous stage, we analyse the possible attack points and devise a full scale “Red Team” approach to mimic real time attacks. To minimise impact of day-to-day activities of the IT asset, we plan the attack, either on dummy environment or during times of lowest network activity (lowest traffic).

Vulnerability Assessment:
In this stage, we run vulnerability scanners to look for possible vulnerabilities and common vulnerabilities related to the platform, services, open ports, obsolete firmware builds, unauthenticated devices etc.

Penetration Testing:
Here we run exploits on the network to evaluate its security. We use custom scripts, open source exploits, in-house tools and third-party exploit frameworks to achieve high degree of penetration. For every network device, we conduct dedicated security assessments to find vulnerabilities and launch the attack.

Reporting:
We generate concise and succinct reports of the vulnerabilities discovered along with discussion on the nature of vulnerability, its impact, threat level and recommendation to remove the vulnerability.

Discussion:
Our technical experts discuss the report, along with the bugs found, and their impact scenario with the development team of the client. Comprehensive discussions are carried out on how to remove the vulnerabilities and improve network security. We also suggest best practices on how to implement network resilience: device level security, rogue device detection, endpoint and perimeter security.
