External Network Penetration Testing

Internet-facing assets, sensitive data, cloud, and IoT are at risk of attack.
NetSPI’s penetration testing service will identify security gaps and
provide actionable guidance for how to improve your network security,
and help meet compliance requirements.

Improve network security with external penetration testing by NetSPI

Companies are constantly facing both opportunistic and targeted attacks against their internet facing assets. Exposed systems and web applications are constantly changing, and the increased adoption of cloud services only expands that attack surface. Our approach includes enumerating those exposures, identifying critical vulnerabilities, and exploiting them using the same tactics, techniques, and procedures used by real-world threat actors who attack your networks every day.

During our external penetration testing service, NetSPI will evaluate your network for security vulnerabilities, including patch, configuration and code issues at the network, system and application layers, and provide actionable recommendations for remediation and improving your organization’s network security program.


More Vulnerabilities

Our processes and platform allow our penetration testers to focus on identifying 20% more vulnerabilities at a higher criticality than other network penetration testing services.

Our External Network Penetration Testing Service

NetSPI will test your internet-facing networks, systems and applications for known vulnerabilites.
We follow manual and automated pentesting processes that use commercial, open source,
and proprietary software to evaluate your infrastructure from the perspective of an anonymous
(non-credentialed) user. Our collaboration during the project will help ensure that you understand
the risks associated with the vulnerabilities and can implement the recommendations.

What to know about external network penetration testing

Scanning internet-facing network resources is a high priority, but a complete security assessment of the hardness of your external network requires multiple steps, such as:

  • Discovering all Internet-facing assets a hacker could find as potential entry-points into your network
  • Identifying additional attack surfaces exposed by clould and federated services
  • Identifying known and common vulnerabilities on Internet-facing systems and web applications
  • Identifying confidential data exposure on publicly available resources
  • Identifying less severe vulnerabilities that can be used together to obtain unauthorized access to systems, applications, and sensitive data
  • Verifying findings using manual penetration testing techniques and removing false positives
  • Delivering actionable guidance for how to remediate verified vulnerabilities

Why you need to use manual penetration testing processes in addition to multiple toolsets during penetration testing
