Network Penetration Testing

Cybersecurity breaches and attacks are unplanned and cost money.

Consequently, we cater to your cybersecurity needs and we’re affordable.

A Hybrid Approach

All of our Network Penetration Tests go beyond standards – such as NIST – and your test will come with a detailed final report.

Your detailed final report will include an executive summary, a listing of vulnerabilities discovered, remediation recommendations, and more.  A letter of accreditation can be provided upon your request.

Throughout the network penetration testing process, automated, as well as comprehensive manual testing, will be used to identify all network and business-logic related vulnerabilities.

Systematic Protection
Our Process

MainNerve ensures that all penetration testing follows the methodology defined in the NIST SP-115 for network and wireless penetration testing as well as OWASP for web application penetration testing. These methodologies ensure a clear, well defined approach to the testing of your infrastructure, applications and employees.

The planning stage of penetration testing will include regular communication with the client’s key points of contact to understand the overall scope of the project to include project objectives, rules of engagement and limitations.

Considered the most critical step in penetration testing, our reports communicate all penetration test findings in a comprehensive and clear report to the client.

MainNerve will perform an extensive search for open source information using tools and techniques to gather information on the client with the explicit goal of identifying technical data about the external and/or internal network infrastructure for targeting.

Exploiting vulnerabilities using a blend of custom, open source, and commercial software tools to exploit vulnerable hosts with the explicit intention of accessing sensitive information, establishing a persistent presence on the system, and exploiting the trusts of related systems.

MainNerve Partner & CEO of FrontierIT

In 12 years of tests, you are the first company that found anything higher than a low risk. Phone and cameras were never discovered in the test, let alone accessed. Great to always get a different perspective from a test.
