Your external network perimeter is the first line of defence
against attackers. External network testing can help
you discover where you are vulnerable to exploitation, and
help to remediate these vulnerabilities in order to prevent
What is an External Network Penetration Test?
An External Network Penetration Test assesses your public facing network infrastructure. Vulnerabilities can often arise from misconfigurations, unpatched software or credential breaches. These vulnerabilities can be exploited by attackers, allowing them to gain access to a business’s internal network.
As part of an External Network Penetration Test, we manually attempt to infiltrate your network from the outside, in order to discover existing vulnerabilities. We’ll document and prioritise any vulnerabilities exploited, and will include clear remediation steps that will help to better secure and protect your external network.
Our external network testing methodology is built upon the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) and the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM). The vulnerabilities we look for vary depending on the technologies configured and the scope agreed with the client.
Findings are consolidated and prioritised in a report alongside clear remediation recommendations. The report is structured in a way that benefits stakeholders at all levels of technical understanding.
What Does Testing Involve?
Discovering unpatched and end of life software
Discovering any versions of software where an exploit may exist on the public domain
Using breached credentials to conduct credential stuffing, password spraying and brute-force attacks
Abusing misconfigurations to see if it could be used to an attacker’s advantage
Noting any software/hardware information that can be used to fingerprint the technologies running
