WiFi Penetration Testing

WiFi is Internet on the go, without coverage. Let us cover your WiFi testing needs.

Identify Wireless Security Vulnerabilities

Simply because of their nature, wireless networks are inherently less secure than wired networks.

From rogue access points and 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.

Our wireless penetration testing services can help you evaluate the security of your wireless implementations and we can provide you with remediation recommendations for improvement.

A Hybrid Approach

All of our WiFi 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 findings, risk ratings and remediation recommendations.  A letter of accreditation can be provided upon your request.

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

Many people forget about their wireless network security, especially since they don’t often use it as they are hard-wired in.
Systematic Protection
Our Process

Almost every organization is using WiFi for their communication and data transfer. This internal communication contains lots of sensitive information. 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 from the internal network. The impact this can have on an organization’s data confidentiality, integrity, authentication, and access controls is substantial.

The planning phase of WiFi penetration testing process includes establishing the overall timeline of the WiFi security test, whether or not the test will be performed using White, Gray, or Black Box methodologies, communicating about on- and off-limit access points, also known as scoping, and creating the Rules of Engagement.

MainNerve will perform extensive enumeration and footprinting of the wireless target environments to identify and verify all access points. 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, 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 penetration test process is where exploitation of any vulnerability and/or misconfiguration occurs. MainNerve may initiate several attacks depending on the wireless environment. These attacks can include man-in-the-middle and brute force attacks, exploitation of rogue access points, session hijacking, and more. MainNerve will try to exploit potential vulnerabilities by utilizing a blend of custom, open source, and commercial software tools. MainNerve will try to exploit a vulnerable host with the explicit intention of accessing sensitive information, establishing a persistent presence on the network, 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 and remediation recommendations along with an executive summary is securely delivered during this step.

Value-Add Services
Compliance Solutions

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.

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.

Social Engineering

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.

Don B.
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.
