Network Penetration Testing SpyderSec's Network Penetration Testing service focuses on discovering and exploiting vulnerabilities on your network - from a remote or internal perspective. This is one of the more common types of penetration testing scenarios, the goal of which is to identify vulnerabilities in underlying operating systems and network enabled services. Simply conducting vulnerability scans will help to discover weaknesses, the advantages of a penetration test however are myriad: One benefit is confirmation that identified vulnerabilities truly exist - this can be accomplished via exploitation. Once we penetrate deeper into a given network, we are able to accurately assess the associated risk with each finding as well as validate security controls that may be in place. Visibility is another important benefit of engaging in a network penetration test, as the results of this type of testing will provide insight into what an adversary could discover and possibly e to harm your organization.
Web Application Penetration Testing Web Application Penetration Testing is a means by which the security of a web application is assessed. The focus of this type of test revolves around the subject website, like "www.spydersec.com" and while the scope may seem limited compared to a network penetration test, in reality the attack surface of a web application can be vast as it may include authentication, payment processing, back-end databases, multiple layers of account privilege/authorization, APIs, and complex business logic. Throughout the course of a web application penetration test each of these elements (when applicable) is assessed using an industry recognized methodology and a keen focus on the OWASP top ten lists for web application and API vulnerabilities. With web applications and externally exposed APIs, there are many aspects of security which need to be taken into account: From platform security, WAFs, software libraries, third-party code, dependencies, to the codebase and user interactions. Because of the intricacies and complexities associated with applications, it is important to choose a reputable penetration testing organization to help discover difficult to find issues only manual testing will identify.
Wireless Penetration Testing Wireless networking introduces another avenue for attackers to infiltrate an organization's network which is why we offer a specific penetration testing service dedicated to assessing the security of wireless networks. Implementing a wireless solution enables an organization to provide convenient network access for guests and associates, while potentially reducing the equipment costs associated with cabling and physical networking infrastructure. Without the proper configuration however, the convenience of wireless access can be outweighed by the exposure of sensitive information. Wireless networking creates an atmosphere where information is traveling through the air, oftentimes outside of a physical building and literally into the parking lot and across the street. This reality creates a scenario in which a malicious actor does not require physical access to an organization to intercept data and attack the network. The goal of a Wireless Penetration Test then becomes identifying vulnerabilities associated with the wireless implementation, determining the impact to your organization and validating the current controls in place or recommending additional measures to reduce risk. SpyderSec takes this one step further by listening and learning of the intricacies of your unique situation so that our final recommendations are not only relevant, but specific to your culture and risk tolerance.
Mobile Penetration Testing The popularity and ubiquity of the mobile platform has grown exponentially in recent years giving rise to the mobile app, bring your own device (BYOD) policies and outsourced mobile application development. With this rise in popularity comes network integration, mobile application programming interfaces (APIs) and the frameworks/architecture built to support mobile devices and their apps. The mobile industry is a unique landscape encompassing physical devices such as wearable accessories, phones and tablets; but also connected cars and homes. SpyderSec recognizes the importance that such integral components have on our lives and our experienced and skilled team members are in a unique position to ensure the security of mobile devices, applications and their supporting infrastructure.
Physical Penetration Testing SpyderSec conducts Physical Penetration Testing as a means to evaluate the physical security controls in place at your organization. Physical security controls range from fences, camera systems and alarms to man traps and shred bins. A well-established security program will often employ many different types of defense mechanisms, usually commensurate with the value of what is being protected and the risk tolerance of the organization. The goal of SpyderSec's Physical Penetration Testing Service is to validate these physical controls and ensure that the safeguards in place truly are providing the perceived level of security.
