Slide 1: Network Penetration Testing: Safeguarding Global Organizations from Internal and external threats Technological innovations, globalization and the aggressively competitive business environment has led to organization investing vast amounts to upgrade their existing information technology infrastructure. To withstand the competition most enterprises pool in enough revenue towards high-end software applications and networking systems. However, the issues of infrastructure security, integrity and confidentiality challenge every organization irrespective of its functional size and its global presence. Depending on the size of the IT infrastructure, most of the large business conglomerates prefer to build up exclusive datacenters to ensure security and confidentiality. However, in case of the small and medium business enterprises, this made not be an easy option, as it would need large investments. With most of the data and communications going over the networked environment, protecting their information from the prevailing vulnerabilities and threats becomes vital for the business. A comprehensive and structured approach such as network penetration testing is required to evaluate the effectiveness of the security services and safeguard the network from the threats. Though IT service providers have worked out managed security services to would provide the flexibility for the dynamic environment, use of network penetration testing will help to identify and exploit security vulnerabilities. The network environment irrespective of it being a corporate network accessible through the dedicated servers or shared hosting services of data centers or the World Wide Web is vulnerable to threats from both internal and external sources. The vulnerability assessment and network penetration testing service provided by leading IT managed service providers is an on-demand solution, which can be conveniently run over the Internet. Network penetration testing aims to identify the security vulnerabilities of the networked environment under controlled circumstances and eliminate these. The process that the testing team follows irrespective of being an in-house or external one is exploiting the organization’s information security by simulating hacker activities. The tools used for these activities are software tools that interfere with the network traffic to facilitate to information retrieval of network’s topology and scan for vulnerabilities including data-in-motion leakages. Since most organizations are also globally bound, the security lapses on their corporate networks make them prone to internal threats. Under such circumstances the network penetration testing is carried out to test infrastructure such as router switches and firewalls in the LAN and WAN environment. Being convenient to run from any location this hybrid testing solution is a blend of automated testing and security analysis, which helps enterprises to identify all possible attack vectors. Further with an online vulnerability management dashboard, it is both PCI and ISO 27001 compliant. Read also on: Dedicated hosting India
