Internal Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Identifying security vulnerabilities within your most sensitive and critical environments.

What is Internal Infrastructure Penetration Testing?

Internal infrastructure penetration testing is the security assessment of internally facing networks and systems by a trusted and experienced security consultant. An internal infrastructure penetration test will assess your the security of your critical internal networks to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could potentially be exploited by a real world adversary.

How Can Your Business Benefit From Internal Infrastructure Penetration Testing?

These are the internal environments that may be used on a daily basis to: transmit sensitive data, connect to business critical services and to store highly confidential information.

  • Permission Creep

    Due to internal environments not being directly exposed to the internet, various insecure configurations are often present. Penetration Testing Middle East can highlight how these insecure configurations can often lead to the full compromise of the entire organisation.

  • CISO / CTO / Heads of IT / IT Security Managers

    Senior staff members will have a clear picture of the internal environments and therefore make plans to introduce new policies, tooling and remediation activities.

  • Engineering Teams

    Network engineering and architect teams will have a clear set of defined remediatory actions that can be applied and learned from in future deployments. These can be as simple as stricter firewall rules and/or better network segmentation.
