Penetration Testing Services

Penetration Testing: External Pen Test

External Pen Test

Our team will attempt to gain access to your internal network from outside the firewall by manually exploiting vulnerabilities on your internet-facing systems.

Penetration Testing: Firewall Pen Test

Firewall Pen Test

Configurations for your firewall and other perimeter devices will be analyzed by our team to identify security gaps that may lead to exploitation.

Penetration Testing: Web App Pen Test

Web App Pen Test

Manually identify and attempt to exploit flaws in your web application with and without login credentials using OWASP and other attack methodologies.

Penetration Testing: Internal Pen Test

Internal Pen Test

Your network will be tested to identify weaknesses that may allow the intruder to easily escalate privileges, pivot to other systems, or gain access to sensitive information.

Penetration Testing: Wireless Pen Test

Wireless Pen Test

Our team will attempt to manually exploit your wireless systems, including routers and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) systems, to identify vulnerabilities that could result in access to your internal network.

Penetration Testing: Social Engineering / Phishing

Social Engineering

Determine how likely your employees are to fall victim to a phishing attack through custom, targeted campaigns and receive access to on-demand training resources.

Cybersecurity Experts
with Real World Experience

TCDI’s penetration testing team is comprised of certified cybersecurity experts, as well as threat hunters from our incident response team.

This real-world experience combined with sophisticated knowledge of attack strategies, security design, and proactive defense creates unparalleled insight the security of your data.

In addition to CEH, our pen testing team also holds CISSP, HISP, MPCS, CompTIA Security+ and CompTIA CySa+ certifications, among others.

Cybersecurity Experts
Comprehensive Tools

Sophisticated Tools and
Comprehensive Methodology

Our pen testing toolkit is comprised of 40+ applications to ensure a thorough analysis and test is performed. This, combined with a comprehensive methodology creates a more in-depth analysis of your data security.

TCDI’s cybersecurity experts will often identify vulnerability chaining opportunities, research enumerated versions using several sources to uncover non-public zero-day exploits (as well as public exploits), evaluate the systems’ responses to their efforts in order to expand their exploitation attempts, and filter out false positives through manual validation.

What to Expect During a Penetration Test

Penetration Testing Methods: Onboarding

Penetration Testing On-Boarding

Once the agreement has been signed, our cybersecurity team will meet with the client to explain the penetration testing process. During this time, the scope of the project will be finalized and the test will be scheduled. This opens the lines of communication and ensures all parties know what to expect.

Penetration Testing Methods: Exploitation

Reconnaissance and Exploitation

When it is time to initiate the penetration test, our team will begin the reconnaissance and exploitation phase using both automated and manual testing methodologies. During this process, we will attempt to identify vulnerabilities that could compromise the confidentiality or integrity of your data while taking great care to safeguard the stability of the systems being tested.

Penetration Testing Methods: Notification

Notification of Critical Vulnerabilities

If our team detects a critical vulnerability that leaves your network open to an attack, we won’t wait for the final report to notify you. Our team will alert you upon discovery of critical threats and provide recommendations so remediation can can take place as soon as possible.

Penetration Testing Methods: Roadmap

Prioritized Action Plan

Our cybersecurity experts will assign a calculated risk score to each identified vulnerability. This score is then combined with the impact and likelihood of exploitation to develop a custom, prioritized roadmap to guide remediation efforts, close security gaps, and lower immediate and long-term risk.

Penetration Testing Methods: Post-Engagement

Post Engagement Meeting

Once the penetration test is complete, our cybersecurity team will conduct a post-engagement meeting to review the report, discuss the results, answer any questions, and explore the recommendations. This important, yet often overlooked, part of the process provides invaluable insights. We also provide a letter of attestation after every engagement to use in the event it is requested by a third-party.

Why Pen Test?

Compliance Requirement

Compliance Requirements

Penetration testing is often required or recommended to meet cybersecurity best practices for compliance frameworks and regulations: NIST SP800-171, ISO 27001, SOC2, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GLBA, among others.

Client Requirements

Client Requirements

Clients are increasingly auditing their third-party vendors’ cybersecurity policies and practices. If you’re not already required to do so, pen testing is a great way to prove you’re proactively protecting your clients’ data.

Competitive Advantage

Competitive Advantage

Proactively safeguarding data often provides a competitive advantage, especially for industries with high-priority data such as healthcare, finance, and manufacturing.

When to Pen Test?

Best Practices

Best Practice

Cybersecurity best practices recommends organizations perform penetration testing on an annual basis as part of your security risk management program.

Technology Changes

Addition of New Technology

Implementing new technology increases the complexity of an organization’s environment and may introduce new vulnerabilities that a penetration test can help identify.

Configuration Changes

Changes in Configuration

Configuration changes can create security gaps that can leave your network vulnerable. A pen test is a great way to identify and remediate those gaps before they can be exploited.

Evaluating Penetration Testing Companies

Compare Documents

Due diligence often requires gathering three (or more) pen testing proposals for comparison. Understanding how a pen testing company will approach an engagement is essential to ensure that you’re selecting the right trusted advisor. Factors to consider include:

  • Testing methodology
  • Tools
  • Experience
  • Communication
  • Reporting

We break down each of these key components in our article, Not All Pen Tests are Created Equal.
