Network and System Penetration Testing
iViZ's Network Penetration Test is more comprehensive than conventional Network vulnerability assessment by using an attacker-oriented approach. By going beyond simple vulnerability testing, iViZ's network testing also exploits them to find the real threats thereby enabling organization to effectively prioritize and remeditate them to drastically improve overall security posture.
Comprehensive Internal & External Network Security Testing
iViZ Security solution provides exhaustive network security testing on your internet network security infrastructure either from within your network or outside over the Internet. While black-box testing is best conducted from outside your network, a comprehensive "Multi-Stage Attack Path" testing as well as protocol link analysis is most effective when done from within your network. iViZ's Network Testing simulates the same methods that an attacker would follow to exploit multiple network security weaknesses in different combinations. Individually, some network vulnerability may not be critical, but when combined in certain ways, they can compromise your business-critical data or computer network.
How Network Penetration Testing works?
Internal On-Demand Network Testing:
Network penetration testing on internal servers and network devices are carried out using iViZ Security Appliance from within your network. The appliance comes with pre-installed with iViZ Security patent-pending technology software and conducts comprehensive testing without having to go over the Internet. Further this appliance can conduct additional network protocol link analysis and multi-stage attack analysis inside your computer network. The below section details the methodology used in the network vulnerability assessment to optimize the network security testing system.
External On-Demand Network Testing:
Network penetration testing on external facing servers and public network devices are carried out from iViZ Security SOC (Security operations center) remotely over the Internet using iViZ's patent-pending technology. The section below details the methodology used in the network security testing process.
iViZ Network Assessment Methodology
iViZ Security uses comprehensive methodology to perform the network assessment. The result of the network vulnerability Assessment is further used to do deeper Protocol Link Analysis as well as Multi-Stage Attack Analysis. iViZ Security conducts vulnerability assessments for small businesses to large regional infrastructures and has made significant strides in the network security communities for identifying, quantifying, and prioritizing the vulnerabilities in a system.
Internal On Demand Assessments:
External on Demand Assessments:
iViZ Security provides on-demand delivery for all Over-The-Internet testing solutions. In the case of Internal Network Testing, it is done using iViZ Security Appliance with pre-installed software. In both cases, the test reports and remediation recommendations are accessible anytime on the iViZ Security Management Portals.

Benefits of iViZ Network Testing
Reduce Cost, Time & Effort Using On-Demand Platform
iViZ Security's unique On-Demand delivery platform and architecture is built to provide SaaS (Software as a Service) experience to our customers. On-Demand delivery significantly reduces the time and cost of conducting a conventional network security testing effort. Customers can conduct periodic & regular Network Testing using this platform. The advantages of using a hosted solution are:
The above unique features reduce cost, time & effort required on your side as well as significantly enhances your ability to proactively manage your network security posture.
Identify "Real" Threats Through Multiple Stage Attack Analysis
Conventional testing involves manual methods which miss out on enumerating all possible attack paths. Also, a Network vulnerability assessment results in too many threat possibilities overwhelming your IT organization's ability to handle. To counter these challenges, iViZ Security technology provides two
Find Network Link & Protocol Level Vulnerabilities
Vulnerabilities occur not only in the systems but also in the computer network communication link and also during the user interactions. iViZ Security technology tests communication links and vulnerable protocols and finds out potential network security threats. It can capture in-transit traffic like emails, plaintext passwords, files etc.
Exploit Systems and Application Vulnerabilities
iViZ Security conducts automatic exploitation of vulnerable hosts using number of exploits for nearly all platforms - Windows, all flavors of UNIX including Solaris, BSD etc., Numerous exploits developed for different platforms, operating systems and applications, and multiple combinations of these are available.
Compliance Wizard & Flexible Reporting For Effective Remediation
Compliance Wizard & Flexible Reporting For Effective Remediation iViZ Security provides comprehensive reports designed for management, developers, QA engineers, system managers and security professionals, providing them full visibility & control of their security needs. The reports are customizable so that users have full control of content and layout.
Monitor Trends With Test Audit History
iViZ Security can store your previous test history data providing you with rich trend intelligence information to help manage your internet network security posture effectively. Succeeding audits highlight the remediation status reported in earlier audits along with their severity levels. This helps keep track of security activities and find clues of possible attacks.
Penetration Testing Approaches
iViZ provides three approaches for penetration testing:
Zero Knowledge Test:
In this approach, the Penetration Test team with no real information about the target environment. This type of test is designed to provide the most realistic penetration test possible since attackers, in many cases, start with no real knowledge of the target system.
In this approach the test team is provided with information a motivated attacker is likely to find. This approach saves time and expense. It is used if there is a specific kind of attack or specific targeted host that customers want to have the penetration test team focus on. To conduct a partial knowledge test, the test team is provided with such documents as policy and network topology documents, asset inventory, and other valuable information.
In the full-knowledge test, the penetration test team has as much information about the client environment as possible. This approach is designed to simulate an attacker who has intimate knowledge of the target organization's systems, such as an actual employee would possess.
Who should conduct?
If your organization relies on computer networks and applications for your business, it is recommended to conduct penetration testing that includes:
If your business is in any of the below industries , you should actively consider carrying out security testing.
Additionally if your organization has any of these compliance and regulatory requirement, penetration test will help you achieve those easily:
