What is the meaning of penetration testing?

The pen testing can include an attempt to detect vulnerabilities, such as unsensitised inputs which are susceptible to code. Compromise customer data could destroy your credibility location protocol interfaces (APIs), interfaces of the interface/backend servers.

  • Penetration test insights can be used to adjust the WAF safety policies and fix vulnerabilities.
  • A penetration test also referred to as a pen test, is a simulated cyber-attack that checks sound sensitivities on your computer system.
  • Penetration testing is also used in the sense of web application safety to increase the firewall of a web application (WAF).

What is our process of penetration testing?

The DigiAlert testing process is entirely different from the ones in the industry. We reach to the issue till the end and give you relief from the problem forever:

Planning and data gathering: The data is compiled together, and the goals are set for which the tests need to be done.

  • Defines the extent and objectives of a test with the structures to be dealt with and the test methods to be used.
  • Gather information on how a target operates and its possible vulnerabilities (e.g. network and domain names, email servers).

Scanning: The different tools are used to check how well the tests respond to the intrusions that are being done.  The next move is to consider how the target application would answer different intrusion efforts. Typically, this is achieved with:

  • Static analysis:Inspect the code of an application to assess how it works during operation. These tools are able to search the whole code in one pass.
  • Dynamic analyses: Code inspection in a running state of an application. This is a more convenient scanning method because it offers a real-time view of the output of an application.

Gaining Access: The different web actions are attempted to check other parameters for positive outcomes.

  • This step uses web application attacks to identify target vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting, SQL injection, and backdoors.
  • Then testers attempt to exploit such vulnerabilities to understand the harm they can do, usually by increasing privileges, stolen data, traffic interception, etc.

Maintaining Access: The different forms of ATP’S are used just to check whether the access will be given and accepted or not.

  • The purpose of this stage is to see if it is possible to use the vulnerability to achieve an ongoing presence in the exploited system—long enough for a bad actor to have complete access.
  • The aim is to mimic advanced continuing threats that often stay in a system for months to steal the most valuable information from an organisation.

Reporting Results:

The data is analysed by the security staff to help configure WAF settings and other security solutions to fix vulnerabilities and prevent potential attacks. This information is checked by security personnel.

What are the different penetration testing methods that we perform?

Checking of external penetration

The website of your business, email, DNS (domain name servers) and the application itself are accessible through the internet. We will try to access your data by simulation an attack from a remote location to perform external network penetration testing.

Why choose us?

Any site and mobile app are vulnerable to attack. It's not "if," it's "when." It's not "if." You want to ensure that you have a mature safety mechanism in place before this occurs. Our information security testing specialists have an IT and software development history, know various achievements, and have thousands of pen tests in place. We are employed to hack systems and identify faults. DigiAlert has done remarkable work in testing of different apps. We have delivered 100% satisfactory results to our clients.

  • Detect risks to safety:We expose security flaws or incorrect processes during penetration testing, which can put you in danger of cyber threats.
  • Meets the criteria of enforcement:Pen checking helps you keep the security controls that regulations like HIPAA, GDPR, PCI-DSS and others require.
  • Avoid financial reversal:Proactively identifying risks before safety violations can prevent downtime, data loss and financial harm
  • Boost satisfaction for customers:Your credibility could be destroyed by compromising customer data. You may prevent accidents with penetration testing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. When should one conduct a pen test?

Ans. Before your device is put into production, the best time to perform a pen test. In other words, you want to ensure that your system does not change constantly.

Q1. When should one conduct a pen test?

Q2. What are the steps in penetration testing?

Ans. The following steps include penetration testing:

  • Data collection and planning:In this section, we describe the scope of tests, test methods and collect system data to understand their possible vulnerabilities.
  • Scan: We are now exploring the reactions of the target system to different attempts at intrusion.
  • Access gain: During cyber-attacks, we reveal the weaknesses and harm caused by the device.
  • Access retention: This process will determine if the threat will survive long enough in the system to steal confidential information from the organisation.
  • Outcome reporting: Finally, we have a study that supports safety professionals our results

Q3. How often must the test be conducted?

Ans. The frequency of penetration testing depends primarily on the size of your environment, how much it is modified and whether you are subject to enforcement requirements. Larger businesses with a higher presence online would have more vectors for the attack, so they need more testing. At least once a year, DigiAlert suggests the performance of penetration tests.
