What is IT infrastructure & why does it need testing?
IT network infrastructure is vital to the day-to-day operation of modern business, whether it’s an entire enterprise network, critical connected devices, software such as VPNs or remote access solutions, isolated VLANs, servers, network storage or even networked devices such as workstations, scanners, or printers.
If a malicious threat were able to gain access to your IT network, it could have wide ranging consequences and could ultimately lead to them gaining full access to critical internal resources, as well as sensitive information.
Testing your IT infrastructure is therefore critical, whether it’s for your own security assurances, as part of an accreditation process (such as ISO 27001) or as part of an IT Health Check (ITHC). Helping ensure your network is deployed in a way that enhances the security of your employees, customers and the resources owned by your organisation.
Types of infrastructure testing
Our infrastructure testing covers the two main aspects of your IT network:
Not sure what type of testing you need?
Our team will be happy to discuss your individual requirements and provide a no obligation proposal based on your needs.
Our infrastructure test process
Every infrastructure penetration test goes through a rigorous process to ensure you get the best possible results. Below we outline the key stages our testing goes through:
Your dedicated account manager (AM) will work closely with you to understand your business, the infrastructure under review & the desired outcomes. The AM will then work with the assigned Pentest consultants & your stakeholders to ensure testing meets your needs.
A bespoke proposal of work will be drawn up based on your requirements, our experience and our consultant’s expertise. This proposal will outline our recommended test approach, the prerequisites needed & the time required to investigate the target.
Testing will commence on the agreed date and our consultants will communicate with you throughout the test, to your set requirements. All testing is conducted manually and our consultants will look to identify as many issues as possible in the time allotted.
A comprehensive, quality assured report of our findings will be delivered following the test. Our reports can be tailored to your needs, providing both a technical and managerial overview of findings, as well as our detailed remediation advice.
5. Post-test support
Our job doesn’t finish on the delivery of a report, your test consultant will be available after the test to explain any aspect of the report, as well as provide remediation support to internal teams and/or external suppliers.
6. Evidence of testing
Many of our clients need to supply evidence of testing for security assurance purposes. We can supply additional documentation which will provide these assurances to your internal and/or external stakeholders.
