Internal Network Penetration Testing

Vulnerabilities can be anywhere on your network. NetSPI’s penetration testing service identifies security gaps, provides actionable guidance on how to improve your network security, and helps meet compliance requirements.

Improve Network Security

NetSPI’s internal penetration test reduces organizational risk and improves network security

Your IT infrastructure may be susceptible to an internal threat or a cloud-based vulnerability that extends into hosted environments with ties to internal networks. NetSPI’s penetration testing simulates the actions of an attacker, producing real-world results on actual vulnerabilities.

During our internal penetration testing service, NetSPI evaluates 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.

Our penetration testers find 20% more vulnerabilities by using our Resolve™ platform and proven methodology.

Our Internal Network Penetration Testing Service

NetSPI tests your in scope networks and systems, targeting in scope networks and systems, which may include cloud infrastructure. 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. However, testing can also be conducted starting from an authenticated perspective.

Our standard testing approach is based on NIST 800-53 special publication, PCI DSS, OWASP Top 10, the Mitre ATT&CK framework and other industry best practices:

  • System and service discovery
  • Automated vulnerability discovery
  • Vulnerability verification
  • False positive removal
  • Web application vulnerability discovery
  • Network protocol vulnerability discovery
  • Online password auditing of available interfaces
  • Active Directory vulnerability discovery
  • Vulnerability exploitation
  • System level privilege escalation
  • Domain level privilege escalation
  • Offline password auditing of Active Directory accounts
  • Access sensitive networks, systems, and data to illustrate risk and impact
  • Target client specific objectives to illustrate risk and impact
  • PCI segmentation testing (as required)


What is the OWASP Top 10?

The OWASP Top 10 is a list of the most critical security risks to web applications, identified by an industry consensus.

Adopting the OWASP Top 10 in your software development and security testing processes is a strong step in improving security for your business, your partners, and your customers.
