Infrastructure Penetration Testing

An Infrastructure Penetration Test uncovers vulnerabilities residing within your infrastructure and provides a detailed attack narrative to help evaluate the impacts of each finding.

What you'll get:
  • A thorough foundational assessment of networks and systems

  • Identify all paths to Domain Admin

  • System hardening recommendations

  • OS and third-party patching assessment

  • Identify insecure configurations within on-prem and cloud environments

  • Uncover the impacts of techniques, tactics, and procedures commonly used by ransomware

  • A comprehensive report with detailed findings and remediation steps

Penetration Testing isn't what we do, it's all we do.

Our penetration testing is more than just a vulnerability scan. Automated testing accounts for only 5% of what we do. The other 95% consists of manually simulated real-life attacks to uncover your network vulnerabilities.

Why conduct an Infrastructure Penetration Test?

Find Weaknesses Others Over Look With An OSCP-Certified Ethical Hacker

Stay compliant by fulfilling all your compliance objectives
  • Fulfillment of compliance objectives includes: PCI DSS, SOC2, FedRAMP, ISO27001, MPA

  • Meet cyber insurance requirements

Find vulnerabilities residing in IT systems, applications, or network components
  • Each finding is documented to describe an attack narrative to illustrate the potential risk.

  • Go beyond a vulnerability assessment to identify the techniques attackers would take to breach sensitive information.

Protect access to sensitive information by finding weaknesses others overlook
  • Identify any external exposures that could lead to internal access

  • Identify the risk to legacy protocols and weak credential hygiene that lead to system and domain compromise

Infrastructure vs Objective-Based Penetration Testing

Packetlabs offers two different types of penetration testing services: Infrastructure Penetration Testing and Objective Based Penetration Testing. Our Infrastructure Penetration Testing is a comprehensive test that provides a depth-based analysis of your security defences. The report generated from this test provides guidelines and suggestions to help your technical staff mitigate exploitable vulnerabilities. Our Objective Based Penetration Testing starts with a coverage-based infrastructure penetration test but also includes additional components to provide a more rounded assessment. While both options find weaknesses others overlook, Objective Based Penetration Testing offers a little more in terms of features and coverage. Check out our comparison chart below or learn more about Objective-based penetration testing here.
