A Full-Suite Penetration Test imitates attackers from multiple avenues. From a technical aspect: this includes from the perspective of an internal attacker or disgruntled employee, an external attacker attempting to breach the perimeter from the internet, or an attacker attempting to exploit coding weaknesses in Web Applications to access backend databases. Non-technical penetration testing includes attempting to trick staff through fraudulent emails, call impersonations, or onsite impersonations attacks to breach physical security.
This test inspects technological weaknesses and also weaknesses in people that could be used to disrupt the confidentiality, availability or integrity of the network, effectively allowing the organisation to address each weakness with confidence.
The strongest technical security infrastructure don’t matter if a susceptible employee clicks on a fraudulent email which installs malware erasing all customer information, or if an attacker can physically walk into a business and deploy hacking software. In order to get the most thorough understanding of the attack surface of a business, it is recommended to perform full-suite penetration testing services.
CTRL Group’s list of penetration tests includes Web Application Testing, Internal Testing, External Testing, Mobile Application Testing, API Testing, Operational Technology Testing and Social Engineering.
