Penetration Testing

Learn exactly how vulnerable your most critical assets are to cyber attacks

Organizations do all they can to protect their critical cyber assets, but they don’t always systematically test their defenses. Penetration Testing from Mandiant Consulting helps you strengthen your security for those assets by pinpointing vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in your security systems.

Penetration Testing

Overview

To provide this service, Mandiant security experts simulate the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) of real-world attackers targeting your high-risk cyber assets. Our deep knowledge of advanced persistent threat (APT) attacker behavior can help you:

  • Determine whether your critical data is actually at risk
  • Identify and mitigate complex security vulnerabilities before an attacker exploits them
  • Gain insight into attacker motivations and targets
  • Get quantitative results that help measure the risk associated with your critical assets
  • Identify and mitigate vulnerabilities and misconfigurations that could lead to strategic compromise

What you get

  • High level executive summary report
  • Technical documentation that allows you to recreate our findings
  • Fact-based risk analysis to validate results
  • Tactical recommendations for immediate improvement
  • Strategic recommendations for longer-term improvement

Explore the latest and greatest trends that define today’s threat landscape, based on Mandiant’s investigation of the most successful cyber attacks of the past year.

Real attacks. Real learning. Real refinement.

Penetration tests conducted by Mandiant Consultants are customized to your environment; no two assessments are ever the same. A wide variety of penetration testing options are available, with each option providing information that can dramatically improve security in your organization.

External Penetration Tests

External Penetration Tests

Objective:
Identify and exploit vulnerabilities on systems, services and applications exposed to the Internet

Benefit:
Understand risk to assets exposed to Internet

Internal Penetration Tests

Internal Penetration Tests

Objective:
Emulate a malicious insider or an attacker that has gained access to an end user's system, including escalating privileges, installing custom crafted malware and/or exfiltrating faux critical data

Benefit:
Understand risk to business from a breach

Web Application Assessments

Web Application Assessments

Objective:
Comprehensively assess web or mobile applications for vulnerabilities that can lead to unauthorized access or data exposure

Benefit:
Understand the security of applications that broker access to critical data

Social Engineering

Social Engineering

Objective:
Assess security awareness and general security controls with respect to human manipulation, including email, phone calls, media drops, and physical access

Benefit:
Understand how your organization reacts to exploitation of human beings

Wireless Technology Assessments

Wireless Technology Assessments

Objective:
Assess the security of your deployed wireless solution, be it an 802.x, Bluetooth, zigbee, or others

Benefit:
Understand how secure your data in transit and systems communicating via wireless technology actually are

Embedded Device and Internet of Things (IoT) Assessments

Embedded Device and Internet of Things (IoT) Assessments

Objective:
Assess the security of your device by attempting to exploit the embedded firmware, control the device by passing or injecting unsolicited malicious commands, or modify data sent from the device

Benefit:
Understand the security of your device and your ability to guarantee that the commands issued to and information received from it are legitimate

ICS Penetration

ICS Penetration

Objective:
Combine penetration testing and exploitation experience with ICS expert knowledge to prove the extent an attacker can access, exploit or otherwise manipulate critical ICS/SCADA systems

Benefit:
Understand the vulnerabilities in your ICS system before an attacker exploits them

Mobile Application Assessments

Mobile Application Assessments

Objective:
Comprehensively assess the security of mobile devices and installed applications

Benefit:
Understand risk introduced to your organization through newly developed mobile applications or company-issued cell phones

Our Approach

The penetration testing service applies a systematic approach to uncovering vulnerabilities that leave your critical assets at risk. It is comprised of four steps: target reconnaissance, vulnerability enumeration, vulnerability exploitation and mission accomplishment.

In target reconnaissance, Mandiant consultants gather information about your environment, including company systems, usernames, group memberships and applications.

For vulnerability enumeration, Mandiant security professionals seek to identify your exploitable vulnerabilities and determine the best way to take advantage of them.

In vulnerability exploitation, penetration testers attempt to realistically exploit the identified vulnerabilities using a combination of publicly available exploit code, commercial penetration testing tools and customized exploit code and tools.

Finally, we arrive at mission accomplishment, which may be in the form of Mandiant experts gaining access to your internal environment via the Internet, stealing data from segmented environments or subverting a device with malicious commands.
