Network Pentesting

Your potential vulnerability area is expanding. Our team of network security experts conducts comprehensive testing on both internal and external networks to detect vulnerabilities in your protected systems, encompassing your cloud, network, and Internet of Things (IoT) environments. Additionally, our network penetration test services fulfill compliance-based criteria like PCI.


Internal Network Penetration testing

Bistwork’s main objective during internal network penetration tests is to discover significant vulnerabilities in systems, web applications, Active Directory configurations, network protocol configurations, and password management policies. The test results are presented in the form of attack narratives that demonstrate how vulnerabilities can be combined in attack chains for maximum effectiveness.

In addition, internal network penetration tests frequently involve evaluating network segmentation to assess the adequacy of controls that isolate critical assets, often referred to as “crown jewels.”


External Network Penetration testing

In the process of conducting external network penetration tests, Bistwork’s primary objective is to detect significant vulnerabilities present in systems, web applications, and internet-exposed cloud environments. The testing encompasses the identification of insecure configurations in federated services and the discovery of sensitive data stored in publicly accessible areas. The deliverables consist of attack narratives that demonstrate the utilization of vulnerabilities in coordinated attack chains to maximize their effects.


Wireless penetration testing

Wireless penetration testing uncovers security vulnerabilities in both wireless devices and networks, which could potentially be exploited to compromise or harm a network. Our assessment of wireless security provides practical recommendations to enhance the security of wireless devices.


Hosted-Based Penetration testing

Traditional network penetration testing engagements may not provide comprehensive insights into the vulnerabilities present in your standard system images and Citrix deployed desktops.

Bistwork conducts in-depth examinations of baseline workstation and server images used for deploying systems in the corporate environment during host-based penetration tests. This service encompasses various assessments such as testing system drive encryption, reviewing group policy configurations, evaluating patch levels, inspecting service configurations, examining user and group roles, assessing configurations of third-party software, and more. Additionally, Bistwork conducts a thorough analysis of systems and applications to identify common and known vulnerabilities. Host-based penetration testing by Bistwork extends support to a wide range of operating systems including Windows, Linux/OS, and MacOS variations.

Network Pentesting

What is external penetration testing?

External penetration testing is a security assessment conducted by ethical hackers to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in an organization's external-facing systems, such as websites, networks, and servers. It involves simulating real-world cyber attacks to determine the effectiveness of existing security controls and discover potential entry points that malicious actors could exploit.

What is internal penetration testing?

Internal penetration testing is a security assessment methodology that simulates real-world attacks on an organization's internal network. It involves authorized security professionals attempting to exploit vulnerabilities in systems, applications, and infrastructure from within the organization's internal network to identify potential weaknesses and assess the effectiveness of existing security controls.

How does internal penetration testing differ from external penetration testing?

While external penetration testing focuses on evaluating an organization's external-facing systems and networks, internal penetration testing focuses on assessing the security of internal systems, applications, and networks. Internal penetration testers typically operate within the organization's network, simulating the actions of an insider or an attacker who has gained unauthorized access. This approach allows for a more comprehensive evaluation of security controls and helps identify risks specific to the internal environment.
