VAPT
What We Offer for You
Scale business performance while cutting down costs.

The primary objective of something like a network penetration test is to identify exploitable vulnerabilities in networks, systems, hosts, and network devices (i.e. routers, switches) before hackers can discover and exploit these vulnerabilities. Network penetration testing will reveal real-world opportunities for hackers to be able to compromise systems and networks in a way that allows unauthorized access to sensitive data or even malicious / non-business-related takeover systems.

This type of test is a simulation of the attack carried out by our highly trained security experts in an attempt to:

  • Identify security flaws present in the environment
  • Understand the level of risk for your organization
  • Help address and fix identified network security flaws

Our penetration testers have in-depth experience in network administration —not just trying to break it. They leverage this experience to zero in on critical issues and provide actionable remediation guidance.

As a result of our penetration tests, you’ll be able to view your network through the eyes of both a hacker and experienced network security professional to discover where you can improve your security posture. Our consultants produce findings in written reports and provide your team with the guidance necessary to effectively remediate any issues we uncover.

KNOW ABOUT
How VAPT works?

GIBS network penetration testing service utilizes a comprehensive, risk-based approach to manually identify critical network-centric vulnerabilities that exist on all in-scope network.

  • Information Gathering
  • Threat Modeling
  • Vulnerability Analysis
  • Exploitation
  • Post-Exploitation
  • Reporting

Using this industry-standard approach, GIBS comprehensive method covers the classes of vulnerabilities in the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) and the Information Systems Security Assessment Framework (ISSAF) including, but not limited to: CDP attacks, MIME testing, DNS enum/AXFR, SMTP relay, SNMP recon, port security, brute force, encryption testing and a lot more…

Manual Testing vs Automated Testing

Our approach consists of about 80% manual testing and about 20% automated testing – actual results may vary slightly. While automated testing enables efficiency, it is effective in providing efficiency only during the initial phases of a penetration test. At GIBS, it is our belief that an effective and comprehensive penetration test can only be realized through rigorous manual testing techniques.

Tools

In order to perform a comprehensive real-world assessment, GIBS utilizes commercial tools, internally developed tools and the same tools that hacker use on each and every assessment. Once again, our intent is to assess systems by simulating a real-world attack and we leverage the many tools at our disposal to effectively carry out that task.

Reporting

We consider the reporting phase to mark the beginning of our relationship. GIBS strives to provide the best possible customer experience and service. As a result, our report makes up only a small part of our deliverable. We provide clients with remediation knowledge resources, dedicated remediation staff and ticketing system to close the ever important gap in the remediation process following the reporting phase.

Remediation & Re-testing

Simply put, our objective is to help fix vulnerabilities, not just find them. As a result, remediation re-testing is always provided at no additional cost.

Each and every network penetration test is carried out continuously using common structures agreed internationally and from industry. GIBS leverages industry standard structures as the basis for conducting penetration tests to ensure a reliable and thorough penetration test. The underlying structure, at a minimum, is based on the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) but goes beyond the initial specification itself.

Information Gathering

The information-gathering phase consists of service enumeration, network mapping, banner reconnaissance and more. Host and service discovery efforts results in a compiled list of all accessible systems and their respective services with the goal of obtaining as much information about the systems as possible.

Host and service discovery includes initial domain foot printing, live host detection, service enumeration and operating system and application fingerprinting. The purpose of this step is to collectively map the in-scope environment and prepare for threat identification.

Threat Modeling

With the information collected from the previous step, security testing transitions to identifying vulnerabilities within systems. This begins with automated scans initially but quickly develops into deep-dive manual testing techniques. During the threat-modeling step, assets are identified and categorized into threat categories. These may involve: sensitive documents, trade secrets, financial information but more commonly consist of technical information found during the previous phase.

Vulnerability Analysis

The vulnerability analysis phase involves the documenting and analysis of vulnerabilities discovered as a result of the previous steps. This includes the analysis of out from the various security tools and manual testing techniques. At this point, a list of attractive vulnerabilities, suspicious services and items worth researching further has been created and weighted for further analysis. In essence, the plan of attack is developed here.

Exploitation

The reporting step is intended to deliver, rank and prioritize findings and generate a clear and actionable report, complete with evidence, to the project stakeholders. The presentation of findings can occur via Google Hangouts/Skype or in-person – whichever format is most conducive for communicating results. At GIBS, we consider this phase to be the most important and we take great care to ensure we’ve communicated the value of our service and findings thoroughly.

At GIBS, we consider the Delivery / Reporting phase to be the most important and we take great care to ensure we’ve communicated the value of our service and findings thoroughly. The deliverable consists of an electronic report that includes several key components including, but not limited to: Executive Summary, Scope, Findings, Evidence, Tools and Methodology.

Findings are communicated in a stakeholder meeting and typically presented in-person or virtually via Google Hangouts/Skype — whichever medium is most conducive for communicating results effectively. During this time, GIBS consultants will walk through the report, in detail, to ensure all findings and their corresponding description, risk rating, impact, likelihood, evidence and remediation steps are thoroughly understood. While this typically involves a single meeting, there is no limitation to that number. The key underlying message is that all information is clearly understood and that a roadmap toward remediation / mitigation is crystal clear.

Components

Some of the key components to our web application penetration test deliverable include, but are not limited to:

  • Scope
  • Control Framework (ie: OWASP, PCI, PTES, OSSTMM)
  • Timeline
  • Executive Summary Narrative
  • Technical Summary Narrative
  • Report Summary Graphs
  • Summary of Findings
  • Findings (Description, Business Impact, Recommendation, Evidence, References, CVSS, Risk Rating Calculation)
  • Methodology and Approach
  • Risk Rating Factors
  • Tools
Why should should my company conduct a penetration test?

A penetration test is a simulated attack from the perspective of a bad actor, such as a malicious hacker. The objective is to simulate a cyber security attack and attempt to uncover security vulnerabilities that might otherwise be discovered by hackers. In doing so, you would gain valuable insight into the security posture of the assets and be able to fix them before hackers are able cause serious damage by exploiting them.

How much time does it take to conduct a network penetration test

The overall time depends on the size and complexity of the in-scope network(s). That said, most tests take anywhere from one week to four weeks, start to finish.

How much does an network penetration test cost?

We get this question a lot and it’s not easy to answer until some level of scoping has been performed. Our scoping process is quick and painless. But overall, the complexity of the network will ultimately determine its cost. For example, when determining the work effort, we take the following into account: number of live IP addresses, etc.

What’s the difference between a Penetration Test and a Vulnerability Assessment?

We get this question a lot as well. Short answer: Exploitation and Post-Exploitation. Vulnerability assessments do not involve Exploitation while penetration testing goes well beyond a vulnerability assessment and into Exploitation and Post-Exploitation phases.
