PEN TESTING NYC
WHAT IS PEN TESTING?
By performing pen testing against your network environment and comparing our activities with your monitoring and alerting controls, your organization can assess its technical security controls against malicious attackers from multiple perspectives.
By performing pen testing (penetration) against your network environment and comparing our activities with your monitoring and alerting controls, your organization can assess its technical security controls against malicious attackers from multiple perspectives.
A pen or penetration test is a simulated cyberattack that evaluates an organization’s cybersecurity. In pen testing, a cyber-security expert uses the same tools as attackers to find and exploit vulnerabilities in a computer system. The goal is to identify weak spots in the system’s defenses that attackers could exploit.
Conduct monthly security assessments to understand your risks to cyber-attacks in near real-time.
Traditional assessments only allow organizations to demonstrate a point-in-time snapshot of the environment. nxPALADIN enables monthly or on-demand risk management by allowing organizations to perform full-scale network penetration tests with a few clicks. The platform measures the effectiveness of compensating controls through its exploitation techniques while minimizing risk through the implementation of compensating controls.
- Finds holes in upstream security assurance practices, such as automated tools, configuration and coding standards, architecture analysis, and other lighter-weight vulnerability assessment activities
- Locates both known and unknown software flaws and security vulnerabilities, including small ones that by themselves won’t raise much concern but could cause material harm as part of a complex attack pattern
- Can attack any system, mimicking how most malicious hackers would behave, simulating as closely as possible a real-world adversary

Types Of Testing
- Reconnaissance tools for discovering network hosts and open ports
- Vulnerability scanners for discovering issues in-network services, web applications, and APIs
- Proxy tools such as specialized web proxies or generic man-in-the-middle proxies
- Exploitation tools to achieve system footholds or access to assets
- Post-exploitation tools for interacting with systems, maintaining and expanding access, and achieving attack objectives
- Poor password hygiene
What is included?
It is common to expect an executive summary, technical report, and a vulnerability report (or spreadsheet) as part of the final deliverables for network pen testing. These reports are specifically tailored toward executive and technical audiences to help understand the risks that the environment poses to the organization.
Post-test, your security expert will review findings and suggest remediation steps. Please ask for a sample report during your SALES CALL.
The platform does indeed actually replicate some of the attacks documented in the MITRE ATT&CK framework, although the reporting structure does not currently include references to the framework at the moment.
Some of the benefits of network penetration testing include the following:
- Prioritizing the remediation of critical security weaknesses
- Understanding how an attacker could gain access to sensitive data or systems
- Meeting compliance and regulatory requirements
- Testing and improving incident response procedures
- Validating the effectiveness of security controls
A vulnerability assessment simply informs an organization about the vulnerabilities that are present within its environment. However, a vulnerability assessment does not attempt to exploit those vulnerabilities to determine the potential impact of successfully exploiting those vulnerabilities. This is not a flaw with vulnerability scanners; they just simply aren’t designed to do this.
nxPALADIN differs in that it is able to perform exploitation and post-exploitation techniques to demonstrate to customers how successfully exploiting a vulnerability could potentially lead to further access to systems and/or confidential data leakage within their environment.
