Network Security

Penetration Testing

Get our cybersecurity experts to comprehensively test your network.  Let us find the vulnerabilities before the bad guys do.

Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing

Penetration Tests are our specialty, and each is conducted using highly trained cyber security experts and unique methodologies to combat the flaws inherent in automated scanners that some others use. 

We attempt to break into your systems using the same methods that a malicious hacker would employ. These could include exploiting unsecured or unpatched devices on your network, flaws in third-party software or human errors in systems configuration.

Our cyber security experts test 100’s of systems and applications ranging from web and mobile applications to APIs and network infrastructure every year. They are constantly trained to stay up to date with emerging trends equipping them to identify vulnerabilities that others cannot.

Application Penetration Testing

All applications are vulnerable, every application has security flaws waiting to be exploited. Let our cyber security experts do a comprehensive penetration testing that not only discovers security vulnerabilities, but also finds business logic vulnerabilities, along with security checklists based on industry standards, including OWASP Top 10, SANS 25, & PCI Compliance.

Mobile Application Penetration Testing

Mobile applications are exploding, most businesses do end up needing to develop mobile applications to support their customers. Unfortunately, mobile applications are also not secure and are prone to security flaws, which are exploited by hackers. Identify these flaws through our in-depth mobile application testing.

Supported Platforms – iOS, Android, Windows.

API Penetration Testing

Customer-facing, partner-facing, or internal application no matter the nature of the applications, most applications have APIs.  APIs by nature are made to be simple and easy to read, but this also means most APIs expose business logic and sensitive information.  OWASP has released a special top 10 to highlight the critical flaws in APIs.  Get our penetration testing experts to test your APIs to ensure they are secure.

Network Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Assuring the health of your network infrastructure and its components is vital to protecting your digital assets and the business services they support.   Network penetration testing can help to ensure that your network infrastructure is securely implemented and that your networked assets cannot be abused through misconfiguration or vulnerability.

Simple automated assessment is not sufficient and requires special expertise. Get our experts to identify vulnerabilities which can be exploited by attackers targeting network devices and connecting infrastructure such as routers, switches, systems, and hosts and ensure they are safe from hacks.

Cloud Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Testing in the cloud differs from traditional testing in that it focuses primarily on the audit of controls that can be applied from the management plane as opposed to vulnerability testing of the underlying infrastructure.

We use a combination of automated tooling and manual investigation from an authenticated perspective to identify all the services deployed within the environment and any misconfigurations or control gaps affecting them.

The Benefits of a Cyber Citadel Penetration Test

Regular assessment of your network security posture will help to prevent attackers from exploiting vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that will enable them to subvert, disrupt or destroy the digital services upon which your business depends.

  • Secure your critical digital systems and assets against threats and malicious activity.
  • Manage cyber security risk by identifying and remediating exploitable vulnerabilities.
  • Build customer, regulator, and stakeholder confidence in your organization’s network security.
  • Meet internal and external compliance requirements by regularly assuring that your network and digital assets have been tested for threats and vulnerabilities.
  • Operate your business with peace of mind that your network and digital assets are secure.
  • Build resilience against the ways that a real-world attacker will target your network.

Threat Hunting in Complex Networks | Penetration Test Breakdown Pt. 1

Part 1 of our penetration test breakdown looks at network complexity and how it determines the final cost. The more complex a network system, the greater the likelihood that an attacker will exploit one or many of the vulnerabilities highlighted in the OWASP Top 10.

Testing Resources for Better Business Security | Penetration Test Breakdown Pt. 2

Part 2 of our penetration test breakdown looks at the resources that determine the efficacy and cost of a penetration test – a necessary part of secure devops, devsecops, application security and digital forensics.
