NetSPI will identify vulnerabilities that provide unauthorized access to the operating system through desktops published via virtualization platforms like Citrix and VMware.
Improve application security with a virtual desktop penetration testing by NetSPI
As the number of remote workers increases it’s become more challenging to manage physical workstations. As a result, many companies provide remote desktop access through virtualization platforms like Citrix and VMware. Those platforms can make it easy for remote employees, partners, and vendors to access what they need without as much overhead cost and management. However, with the ease of access comes additional risks that don’t have to be considered for laptops not typically accessible from the internet.
During Virtual Desktop Penetration Tests, NetSPI will identify vulnerabilities that provide unauthorized access to the operating system through desktops published via virtualization platforms like Citrix and VMware. Additionally, NetSPI will review the system configuration to identify vulnerabilities that could be used to escalate privileges, pivot into the internal environment, or exfiltrate sensitive data.
NetSPI also offers host-based pentests and red team engagement that focus on virtualization platforms:
