Measure the overall security of your wireless infrastructure and ensure the integrity and security of your WIFI networks.
Wireless clients are extremely vulnerable to exploits. Know how vulnerable your WLANs are and receive remediation recommendations to improve your wireless security.
WIFI Penetration Testing:
A Hybrid Approach
MainNerve utilizes automated, as well as comprehensive manual testing, throughout the WIFI penetration testing process. WIFI pen tests are performed in order to identify all wireless network and business-logic related vulnerabilities. At MainNerve, all of our WIFI security tests go beyond national standards such as NIST, and come with a detailed final report detailing the results of the test. This final report includes an executive summary, a listing of risk ratings, remediation recommendations, and more.
Identify Wireless Security Vulnerabilities
Simply because of its nature and medium, wireless networks are inherently less secure than wired networks. From rogue access points to weak encryption algorithms… to customers that access your wireless networks, threats to WIFI networks are unique… and the risk they pose for businesses can be significant. It is for this very reason that businesses must be cognizant of the security implications associated with an unsecured wireless network. MainNerve’s wireless penetration testing services help businesses evaluate the security of their wireless implementations and provide remediation recommendations for improvement.
Test your wireless network against:
Weak Encryption Keys
Evil Twin Attacks
Insecure EAP Types
WIFI Protected Setup (WPS) Vulnerabilities
THE MAINNERVE PROCESS
Almost every organization is using WIFI for their communication and data transfer. This internal communication contains lots of sensitive information. And if an unauthorized user is able to sniff or connect to the wireless access point, the hacker will be able to retrieve lots of information as now the hacker has access to the internal network. The impact this can have on organizations data confidentiality, integrity, authentication, and access controls is substantial.
The planning phase of WIFI penetration testing process includes establishing Rules of Engagement, communicating about on- and off-limit access points (Scoping), the overall timeline of the WIFI security test, and whether or not the test will be performed using White, Gray, or Black Box methodologies.
MainNerve will perform extensive enumeration and footprinting of the wireless target environments in order to identify and verify all access points. During this phase, MainNerve will also determine the encryption types used across the wireless environment. At this point, key targets will then be selected for exploitation during the attack phase. If, during the discovery phase of the WIFI penetration test, unencrypted networks are discovered, clear-text transmissions will be captured and reassembled to identify user credentials and other sensitive information.
The attack phase of the WIFI pen test process is where exploitation of any vulnerability and/or misconfiguration occurs. During this phase, MainNerve may initiate several attacks depending on the wireless environment. These attacks can include man-in-the-middle attacks, exploitation of rogue access points, brute force attacks, session hijacking, and more. MainNerve will try to exploit potential vulnerabilities by utilizing a blend of custom, open source, and commercial software tools. Throughout the attack phase, MainNerve will employ a “target of opportunity” approach wherein MainNerve exploits a vulnerable host with the explicit intention of accessing sensitive information, establishing a persistent presence on the system, and exploiting the trusts of related systems..
At MainNerve, we consider the final phase of the WIFI security testing process, reporting, to be the most crucial and instrumental step. During this phase, we take great care to ensure we effectively communicate the value of our service and findings as thoroughly as possible. Our main goal is to ensure that all information from the WIFI security assessment is clearly understood and that a roadmap toward remediation/mitigation is well defined. A comprehensive final report detailing all testing information along with an executive summary is securely delivered during this step.
Network Penetration Testing
Network penetration testing assists with the identification and examination of vulnerabilities for external, Internet-facing and internal, intranet systems. A network pen test will help determine whether an attack can exploit and compromise targeted systems. Take the next step to improving your business’ security with a network pen test.
MainNerve’s compliance solutions are designed to help fill one of the biggest challenges for businesses: staying in alignment with the exhaustive list of Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) requirements. From PCI DSS and HIPAA, to CJIS and FINRA, MainNerve can help your business navigate the GRC landscape with specialized penetration tests.
Social engineering, in the context of information security, is commonly defined as the of persuasion and/or manipulation techniques in order to influence people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. Ensure that your business is secure by testing and evaluating your employees against general phishing and “spear-phishing” attacks.
