Internal Network Penetration Testing

Web Application Penetration Testing


Most businesses prioritize defending their environment’s perimeter from external threat actors. But what if that perimeter is breached?

The foundation of your organization’s security posture is a secure and a robust infrastructure. As technology progresses, hackers devise more complicated strategies to breach an organization’s security defenses and cause havoc. To prepare for this growing threat, you must think like an adversary. And the best way to achieve this is via an internal network penetration test.

What is Internal Network Penetration Testing?

An internal network penetration test is an advanced infrastructure assessment that assesses the extent of a security vulnerability to insider attacks or an adversary who has already gained a foothold within a network and is looking to escalate their privileges. This type of penetration test helps to gauge what an attacker could achieve with an initial access to a network. They are more detailed than automated vulnerability scans with the goal of acquiring access to sensitive assets located in the internal network. Internal penetration test involves privilege escalation, malware distribution, MiTM attacks, lateral movement, sensitive data exfiltration, and other harmful activities.

At the very least, the following steps are involved:

  1. Host Discovery
  2. Assessment
  3. Exploitation
  4. Privilege Escalation
  5. Post Exploitation
  6. Lateral Movement
  7. Persistence
  8. Data Exfiltration

How we do it?

Our team goes beyond traditional vulnerability scans and often delivers objective based assessments depending on the scope of work. This includes, but not limited to, obtaining “Domain Admin” privileges, or obtaining PII data within the internal network. We recommend carrying out frequent internal network penetration tests to discover and assist remedy vulnerabilities, given the financial repercussions of a breach.
