Network Penetration Testing

Service Overview

What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration Testing is a critical component of any comprehensive data security strategy and is also essential for PCI-DSS compliance. During a penetration test, an authorized simulated attack is performed to uncover any potential weaknesses in an information system or network.

Our Approach

We provide comprehensive penetration testing of internal and external networks to help you identify vulnerabilities and ensure PCI-DSS compliance. Our experts use a combination of proprietary tools and techniques that go far beyond automated scanners to uncover any weakness that could potentially be exploited by malicious actors.

We also provide certified penetration testing services for your website, intranet, and mobile applications, helping you to ensure full PCI-DSS compliance.

How Does It Work?

Local Area Networks (LAN) and Wide Area Networks (WAN) are common in most work environments because they make collaboration, connection, and information access simple and efficient. But this connectivity can also be a potential weakness: a poorly protected internal network poses one of the greatest security threats to your critical data. Unauthorized users can easily access information on your LAN/WAN when effective security controls aren’t in place, resulting in the theft of personal health information, credit card data, and other sensitive customer information—as well as slamming your organization with financial losses and costly lawsuits.

Internal Penetration Testing 

MegaplanIT’s Internal Penetration Testing service will determine where your vulnerabilities lie, test existing defenses, and help you secure your internal network against potential threats, ensuring that your private data remains private. Your network perimeter, which includes firewalls, host-hardening configurations, and router access control lists (ACLs), exists as a protective barrier for your information assets. It is also susceptible to attack—and the cost of a breach is just as high—so it’s critical that your network perimeter is solid.

External Penetration Testing

MegaplanIT security specialists will find and exploit actual known and unknown variables from the perspective of an outside attacker to evaluate the effectiveness of your defenses. Our team will also analyze the configurations set up between network hosts and relevant devices to ensure that all necessary security controls are in place and functioning effectively. With multiple decades of expertise in the industry, we’ve developed a thorough protocol for External Penetration Testing that allows our consultants to effectively analyze your system from top to bottom without disrupting your organization’s normal workflow.

Your Final Report

Once testing is complete, you will receive a comprehensive Final Report that includes:

A detailed assessment of all existing security controls with a corresponding Risk Level Rating.

An explanation of each identified area of risk, including options for remediation of the weaknesses.

Customized recommendations on improving current IT architecture and revising IT security policies (if applicable).
