protecting your wireless networks
Organisations will often operate several distinct wireless networks from a single site. A typical setup may include a staff network, a guest network and potentially a dedicated network for embedded devices.
The primary risk relating to Wi-Fi networks is that a compromised network may be used as an initial foothold from which to attack the rest of the organisation. Certain Wi-Fi attacks can also be used to steal user credentials.
While Wi-Fi attacks require physical proximity to the target, this is typically not a barrier for a dedicated attacker. This is because Wi-Fi signals often extend beyond the physical perimeter of a site and specialist equipment can provide attackers with a much greater signal range.
the benefits of wireless network testing
what we test
Our wireless testing is tailored to your requirements and our consultants can evaluate the following areas:
- Rogue access points
- Insecure router configuration settings
- WPS weaknesses
- Insecure wireless encryption
- Improper network segregation
- Susceptibility to common wireless attacks such as Evil Twin attacks
Every wireless network test goes through a rigorous process, ensuring you get the best possible outcome for your organisation. Below we outline the key stages our testing goes through:
We work with you to fully understand your organisation, the wireless networks in question and the desired test outcomes.
2. proposal & prerequisites
A proposal will be drawn up outlining the planned scope of work and the preparation needed to start testing.
Our consultants are given access to the site, using their expertise to evaluate the network from a security standpoint.
4. ongoing communication
Our consultants will communicate with you throughout the test, to your set requirements.
A comprehensive, quality assured report of test findings will be delivered.
6. post-test support
Our consultants will be available to offer guidance on any aspect of the report, as well as remediation efforts
You have the option to retest, ensuring reported vulnerabilities have been addressed.
