Why perform a network pentest?

Even with extensive perimeter security, human errors and compromised third-party components can lead to attackers gaining access to your network. If internal security is neglected, they might be able to move laterally, escalate privileges, and keep an undetected foothold to exfiltrate sensitive data. Taking a layered approach to security and thoroughly testing your networks is key to ensuring your infrastructure remains safe in the event of a perimeter breach.

With a network pentest, Halo Security will use advanced hacker techniques to test for segmentation between environments, detect vulnerabilities in internal systems, and even discover perimeter weaknesses that aren't visible from an external perspective. Gaining a hacker's perspective on your internal systems allows you to find and fix security issues so you can rest assured that your perimeter isn't the single point of failure for your business's security.

What's the difference between a network pentest and an application pentest?

Network pentests are conducted against a network range, whereas application pentests are conducted against a single web application. During the network pentest, we perform a discovery of services running within the network and manually test them for vulnerabilities in service software, configuration, or trust relationships between hosts in the network. A network pentest is designed to assess and attack multiple hosts on a network, while application pentests focus on one web application.

How much does it cost?

All of our penetration testing services are quoted after determining the scope of the project. Network pentests start at MSRP $8,950 per 256 IPs.
