Network Penetration Testing is a key part of the assurance lifecycle for digital systems and assets, to ensure that your network infrastructure is securely implemented and that your networked assets cannot be abused through misconfiguration or vulnerability.
The primary goal of a Network Penetration Test is to identify vulnerabilities which can be exploited by attackers targeting network devices and connecting infrastructure such as routers, switches, systems, and hosts.
Network Penetration Testing can be performed both internally and externally, targeting internal systems and infrastructure and internet-facing hosts respectively. It is designed to identify vulnerabilities that could affect the confidentiality, integrity or availability of systems and the data they process.
Penetration testing is critical to establishing a robust security baseline for your digital environments. Assuring the health of your network infrastructure and components is vital to business continuity and a core component of effective risk management, to ensure the resilience of the critical business services that your digital systems and technologies underpin.
Regularly testing your network infrastructure is essential for organisations who are reliant on digital systems and technologies in order to provide their business services. JUMPSEC recommends that all organisations who are dependent on evolving digital infrastructure incorporate regular testing into their ongoing security assurance programme to ensure an appropriate level of cyber resilience is achieved.
- Complex technical risks translated into business terms demonstrating the value of cyber security investment in terms of business risk reduction.
- Enable the timely identification and remediation of vulnerabilities which could be exploited by an attacker to cause harm to your business.
- Build resilience against realistic attacker techniques by simulating the ways that a real-world attacker will target your network.
- Increase confidence in the security posture of your digital assets to build the trust of your internal stakeholders and external authorities, customers, and partners alike.
- Satisfy a range of compliance requirements with a comprehensive report detailing vulnerabilities
- identified and recommended remedial actions prioritised by risk.
