Internal Network Penetration Testing

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

Strengthen Your Cybersecurity with Internal Network Penetration Testing

An important element of a cyberattack is the actions an attacker takes to hide in your internal network and expand their foothold in your environment. Average dwell times – the length of time an attacker can stay hidden in your network before you detect their presence –  typically measures in months, but there are many examples where an attacker remained hidden for years while they continued to exfiltrate your sensitive information. During this time, attackers are working at bypassing controls that enforce network segregation, and avoiding your internal network security controls, including detection and response measures.

For an attacker to move around your internal network undetected, they need to find other systems in your environment. These attackers typically use stolen credentials or vulnerabilities on internal resources to compromise new systems. They often install malware and even use valid tools you have already installed to take advantage of their accesses.

Evolve Security’s internal network penetration testing services are designed to help you proactively identify potential exposures of which an attacker can take advantage. This includes problems like vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, exposed subnets and systems, and also includes evaluation of the effectiveness of your existing security controls by determining which tests you detected.

Evolve Security provide information to help you identify, prioritize, remediate, manage, and report on the associated 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.
