Internal Penetration Testing

Internal  Penetration Testing

Internal penetration testing needs to be done in order to check for insider attacks.

It takes different approach as it stimulates what an insider attack could accomplish.

Although the target is typically similar as external penetration testing, the major difference is the “attacker” either has some authorized access or is starting from a point within the internal network.

Insider attacks have the potential of being much more devastating than an external attack because insider’s already have the knowledge of what’s important within a network and where it’s located, something that external attackers don’t usually know from the start.

Why do you need  internal penetration testing?

Internal Penetration Testing has several benefits:

  • To test an organization’s internal monitoring and incident response capabilities,
  • To check, if an intruder has the equivalent of internal access, how they gained access to perform unauthorized data disclosure, misuse, ex-filtration, alteration or destruction of confidential information, including Non-Public Personal Information (NPPI),
  • To ensure the internal network defenses are fully operational,
  • To breach the targeted system, as an unauthorized user with varying levels of access, such as: a malevolent contractor, a malware infestation, or a hacker that works with internal information,
  • To determine what systems, a malicious insider would be able to access from within the internal structure of the network.

What do  we offer?

Universal Frameworks Inc., is able to perform internal penetration testing to assess and protect your system.

This involves the finding and exploitation of known and unknown vulnerabilities on an internal network and detects weaknesses in a system or network that could allow the host to be compromised.

Internal penetration testing is recommended to be done as frequently as external is perimeter testing.

UFI suggests that internal penetration testing be performed as part of regular security assessment of security networks’ protocol.
