In today’s world of cybercrime, it’s vital to have strong network security. As technology becomes more and more common in our daily lives, the risks of hacking and cybercrime also escalate. Every day there are new threats, and you will need to know how to keep a secure perimeter around your computer or phone.
Network security is more than just firewalls and anti-virus software. Network security is the protection of data from unauthorized use and access by utilising the capabilities of a network architecture in such a way that confidentiality and authenticity are maintained.
Our network security specialist can help you understand your network, protect it from harm, as well as investigate and track down a potential hacker if one should breach your defenses. We have also have a team of highly trained professionals available 24/7 to respond to any threats against your network or data.
Why Do We Need Network Security?
Network security is critical for many reasons, but here are the ones that matter to you. You’re probably reading this on a personal computer or mobile device, so imagine if someone could get into your information through the network and make illegal purchases in your name or steal intimate details about your life.
If you’re a small business owner, you need to understand how hackers can access business records and trade secrets that give them the upper hand in negotiations with other companies.
Here at Lorcam, we have a team of trained professionals who have expertise in Network Security Pentesting. They assess the networks by using industry-standard tools, scan for open ports and services running on the port, enumerate the open ports and services to find vulnerabilities, and perform a penetration test manually to check the exploitability of the vulnerabilities. Further, We will do a risk assessment based on the PenTest result and we make sure that your network is secured.
How Do We Do?
Lorcam’s penetration testers follow standard methodology while performing Network Security Penetration Testing.
We follow Network Security Penetration Testing methodology which is divided into 3 phases:
- Pre-Attack Phase
- Attack Phase
- Post Attack Phase
- Pre-Attack Phase:
The purpose of this phase is to offer the penetration tester an understanding of the type of environment he will be testing.
This phase is mainly focused on planning and preparation of the penetration test, it includes how the penetration test will perform, what is in scope, how many people will work on the project, emergency contact at the company’s side, and other documentation.
- Attack Phase:
From this phase actually, the penetration test will start. We can divide this into four parts:-
(i) Information Gathering– Penetration testers will perform OSINT and use public resources to gather information about the target. Attackers with access to tons of information available on the internet trying to find out the sensitive ones which can be used for further exploitation purposes.
(ii) Scanning and Enumeration– In this step, Penetration testers will scan and enumerate the networks and IP range using NMAP, hping3, Angry IP scanner, Advance IP scanner, etc. tools to find the open ports and the services running on it.
(iii) Vulnerability Assessment– In this step, we focus on finding security vulnerabilities in networks by using automatic vulnerability scanning tools such as Nessus, Accunetix, Netsparker, etc.
(iv) Exploitation Research/ Manual Testing– According to an article, automatic vulnerability scanning tools can find up to only 45% of the presented vulnerabilities in the target system. SO, it mandates Manual Testing to get more accurate results and to provide a more secure environment. In this step, we find exploits for vulnerabilities presented in the target system.
- Post-Attack Phase:
The post-Attack Phase includes the documentation of the vulnerabilities found during the Attack phase that contains details about the vulnerabilities, a step-by-step process to reproduce the attack, and the most crucial part remediation. We will coordinate with the target organization to mitigate the vulnerabilities. Further, we will retest the vulnerabilities after the implementation of fixes and patches to ensure that the vulnerabilities have been fixed properly.
Our Working Process
Initial talks that happen between the client firm and the security experts for a discussion of the security status of the infra.
Security experts draft a proposal of all the testing and patching services required by the client firm.
Scope of the project (focus area, requirements, etc.) is determined by the complexity and need for security (web, mobile, cloud, etc.)
Security experts initiate engagement activity with the methodology to make it secure by finding loopholes and patching them.
Need A Free Estimate?
Reach out to us with your Scope and Complexity and get a free estimate from our expert team and duration for the security assessment of your network or Application.
Whenever you make any changes in your network infrastructure or system, you should go for Network Security Testing as it is very critical for your organization’s security. It is preferred best for an organization to conduct network testing quarterly or half-yearly or annually for a safe and secure network environment.
Network security is valid until any latest update is released or any changes are made.
If you go for a complete compliance audit like ISO 27001 standard, you will be provided a certificate by ISO 27001 itself. And if you go for VAPT, Our organization will provide you a security certificate that is valid for 3 months or 6 months, or a year as per the contract details.
After getting a request for a proposal from your side, we will give you the technical and commercial details for the project. And after mutual agreement and legal contract, we can start the project.
The cost of the project depends on the complexity of the project or your network infrastructure and the duration of the contract.
