The initial phase of a penetration test is to take all the reconnaissance data, enumerated system data and every one of the identified theoretical vulnerabilities and attempt to exploit them the same way a hacker would. This is the Penetration Test or Pen Test and it is where all those theoretical weaknesses get exercised to see if there is way into the network or web application. Each pen test is customized to meet the needs of the client. Whether white-box or black-box, internal or external, wireless or wired…we even perform social engineering tests to see if we can ethically hack into your organization.
Normal penetration tests live in a world that only looks at how to exploit KNOWN, theoretical vulnerabilities. These tests do not address zero-day flaws in security controls or applications. These tests are also limited by the skill of the ethical hacker doing the testing. At SynergyIT, traditional pen testing is only the starting point. We also hunt for breach and compromise that has ALREADY happened. Every single minute of the day your network perimeter, your employees and your web application are being pen tested by thousands of adversaries. Our Solutions Pen Test has built-in threat hunting that works to identify Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and Zero-Day malware that has already breached the network.
