Network Penetration Testing

Our network penetration testing services proactively exposes vulnerabilities in your network infrastructure and enables efficient remediation.

Uncover Vulnerabilities and Strengthen Your Network Security with Network Penetration Testing

Organizations are also facing an evolving threat landscape, with new forms of attacks and techniques being developed and used by attackers. Business needs continue to evolve rapidly, requiring organizations to be more agile. Evolutions in supporting technology has increased your attack surface and made it more challenging for you to protect their network infrastructure and systems. Access to your systems is more valuable to cybercriminals, as is access to your internal data.

As a result, cyberattacks continue to increase. To combat these developments, you must actively manage your network presence, and maximize your ability to control internal and external vulnerabilities attackers could take advantage of. One of the best ways for you to manage potential exposures is to use a network penetration test to proactively identify and remediate the types of vulnerabilities a cyberattacker might target.

Evolve Security’s network penetration testing services are designed to meet this exact need - to help you proactively identify, prioritize, remediate, manage, and report on identified vulnerabilities. Evolve Security maximizes the effectiveness of this service by providing you with results in our Darwin Attack® portal as the test progresses. Evolve Security ensures you have details that enable you to conduct proactive remediation, reducing the exploitable vulnerabilities in your environment, enhancing your control and security, improving compliance, and reducing risk.

Modernize your network penetration testing approach

Network penetration tests from most vendors are often “tool-based”, and rely heavily on the tool set being used. There is value in focusing on automated solutions, since it allows vendors to make their offerings efficient – potentially to find more results for less resources. Results are most often followed by an internal reporting process that requires development and review time before the report is formatted for delivery. On the other end of the spectrum, automated reports may be fast, but they can miss context.

Evolve Security is dedicated to making the entire penetration test process efficient and effective, not just the test. During penetration testing, our security professionals enter findings, such as identified vulnerabilities and potentially exploitable systems, directly into our Darwin Attack® portal. We update the portal in a near-real-time basis, not at the end of the test. We also have a team of security professionals who maintain and enter related cybersecurity data into Darwin Attack® in a regular, ongoing manner. This includes details like detailed remediation recommendations. Providing you access to the same portal used by our testers and security professionals helps maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of your entire testing, remediation, and management process. The fact that our security professionals update test results in the portal means they spend less time writing reports, and more time doing validation and follow-on testing, giving you more accurate results.
