Cloud Penetration testing
In today's business landscape, many companies are turning to cloud systems to keep their crucial data. But thinking that these cloud systems are naturally more secure than traditional data centers can be misleading. In fact, their remote nature can sometimes make them a bigger target for malicious attacks. Thankfully, you don't always need direct permission from cloud providers to do penetration testing, though there are certain guidelines to follow. These rules come straight from the providers, and our expert security team knows them inside out. Whether you're on Amazon's AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud, we've got the know-how to thoroughly assess your cloud security.
WiFi penetration testing
Today's world is connected wirelessly, but this crucial aspect of our modern lives often gets side-stepped in security checks. When we talk about penetration tests for wireless networks, we're zeroing in on their security stance and hunting down possible weak spots. These networks, while vital for access, can also be a intruder's golden ticket if not secured properly. At Logisek, our expert team delves deep, checking for various risks: from deauthentication attacks and settings to rogue devices and unsanctioned access. We're thorough, ensuring that this essential digital doorway stays firmly locked against any unwanted guests.
Breaking down enterprise networks into smaller chunks and setting up firewalls between them certainly beefs up the maze of firewall rules. It's pretty standard to find hundreds or even thousands of rules when segmenting networks. But to ensure this new structure serves its purpose and aligns with your business goals, a thorough security check is essential. Remember, maintaining network segments isn't a one-time deal; it's ongoing. Regular tests are pivotal to confirm the rules are doing their job and that each segment remains airtight. Unneeded paths of communication? They've got to go to maintain top-notch security. In fact, many security guidelines recommend routine checks, be it twice-a-year or yearly. Our testing approach covers all bases: from scrutinizing firewall rules and poring over network blueprints to employing tools like NMAP for network scans. With our meticulous methods, we're dedicated to shielding your network from potential dangers.
Remote working assessment
In the age of remote work, ensuring your business's virtual operations are secure is more important than ever. If your team's working from their homes or coffee shops, it's vital to confirm that this setup doesn't compromise security. A remote work security assessment delves into system vulnerabilities, double-checks your security guidelines, spots any network soft spots, and evaluates the overall risks of a distributed team. The endgame? To make sure that whether it's networks, apps, or devices, everything is locked down tight. Working from home brings its unique set of challenges. Think of VPN setups gone wrong, cloud storage missteps, shaky access controls, personal devices accessing company data, mismanaged firewalls, and vulnerable remote desktop connections. By thoroughly examining every nook and cranny of your remote work ecosystem, we're on a mission to pinpoint and patch up these potential vulnerabilities. This way, we keep your digital assets and operations safe, no matter where your team logs in from.

We craft our reports with distinct sections, namely:
Frequently asked questions about ΙΤ infrastructure penetration testing
Penetration testing is the authorized simulation of an attack on your digital assets—both inside and out, aimed at identifying vulnerabilities. At Logisek, our security experts blends manual and automated techniques to detect and exploit any weak points within your IT infrastructure environment.
System and network penetration testing services equip you with a proactive approach to your cybersecurity. They unearth, evaluate, and exploit security vulnerabilities, analyze and identify incorrect system configurations, and appraise the effectiveness of security mechanisms within the targeted information infrastructure that could potentially be exploited by cybercriminals.
The fallout from a breach can be financially draining and significantly tarnish your business's reputation. With the escalating number of cyber-attacks, it's less about "if" you'll be targeted and more about "when". Hence, fortifying your security posture becomes an imperative step in today's digital landscape.
External IT infrastructure penetration testing zeros in on your online-facing services since they're often the most vulnerable. Given the constant onslaught from external threats, these front-line systems are in the crosshairs and need to be impeccable. There's simply no margin for error with your first line of defense.
On the flip side, internal IT infrastructure penetration testing plays out what happens when a cyber intruder slips past the outer gates. Imagine a hacker who's just breached the exterior or perhaps an insider threat—a disgruntled employee or a careless staff member. Some argue this inside threat is even scarier and more damaging than external ones.
So, what's the goal here? It's to gauge how tough it'd be for this "inside intruder" to navigate around your network and uncover valuable data. But there's more. This exercise also tests the reflexes of your defense team or systems. Can they spot the intruder swiftly? And once they do, how quickly can they isolate the threat?
Automated vulnerability security scans can pinpoint well-known issues or vulnerabilities. IT infrastructure penetration testing, on the other hand, it doesn't just spot issues; it actively tries to exploit them, giving you a deeper dive into where your defenses might falter.
Some businesses blur the lines between penetration testing and automated vulnerability scans. This confusion can lead businesses to mistakenly procure automated vulnerability scanning services under the assumption that it equates to a comprehensive penetration testing, which is certainly not accurate.
A Vulnerability Assessment (VA) provides you with a list of vulnerabilities that an attacker could potentially exploit in an attack. Numerous exploits possess several dependencies that must be present for the attack to succeed. This depth of validation can only be provided through penetration testing. During this process, a competent certified security consultant understands the conditions required for each exploit to function and conducts the attack in a controlled and secure manner.
Every day, we discover new cybersecurity vulnerabilities, while cybercriminals constantly look for ways to exploit them. In such a scenario, IT infrastructure penetration testing isn't just an option—it's essential. It's about pinpointing and mending weak spots in our information systems, ensuring our business's digital backbone remains robust.
Furthermore, penetration testing isn't only about finding gaps; it's a badge of assurance. It's proof that our defenses and security measures align with the gold standard of industry best practices. When we run these tests, we're essentially checking that our systems aren't sporting any known weaknesses. And if we do find a chink in the armor? We act swiftly and decisively, patching it up before any security breaches can even get a foot in the door.
Let's break it down to one word: Assurance.
At Logisek, we ensure that we've left no stone unturned in evaluating the security defenses your organization has put in place.
You can't truly gauge how strong a defense is until you challenge it. The security of the IT infrastructure should be safeguarded without an exclusive reliance on defensive systems. We've seen big-name antivirus programs and intrusion detectors failing to spot malicious activity in the past.
Unfortunately, there are businesses that have reached out to us only after falling victim to a breach. By then, the harm's done.
However, with a proactive mindset, your business isn't just getting another security check. You're getting a detailed map from us. Our reports don’t just cater to the tech-savvy. They're crafted for everyone—from those who need a straightforward summary to the tech experts who desire in-depth insights, directives, and next steps.
These guides don’t just highlight the gaps; they're your playbook, helping you understand the time and cost required to secure your IT infrastructure.
The digital landscape is ever-shifting, with threats morphing and adapting continuously. By harnessing the power of IT infrastructure penetration testing, businesses can affirm that, as of the test date, their digital fortresses stand resilient against known vulnerabilities.
It's a golden rule: conduct web applications, mobile applications and IT infrastructure penetration testing on a consistent basis. Whether it's every quarter, twice a year, or annually, businesses stay ahead by running these tests, especially after making significant changes to their infrastructure. This ensures that these shifts don't inadvertently weaken their defenses. And if you're in the payment service realm, segmented networks testing should be conducted every six months.
By regularly probing and testing, you not only pinpoint potential weak spots but also take timely actions. This keeps your organization's digital domain secure, even as cyber threats evolve.
In the cyber realm, consistently probe for the weakest link – always seeking the path of least resistance. They're continuously on the lookout for the most vulnerable entry point into a company's network.
Such routes could potentially bypass a firewall. Its main job? To ensure only the right kind of traffic gets in and out. But if an attacker cleverly disguises themselves as legitimate traffic, they can waltz right through.
More often than not, the most vulnerable link for many organizations isn't a piece of technology but the people themselves. Employees can fall prey to deceptive phishing schemes, inadvertently rolling out the red carpet for intruders. Once inside, these cyber trespassers can then potentially get their hands on your organization's most valued digital data.
Often, our clients hand over a curated list pinpointing the exact IT systems they want us to concentrate in on during the penetration tests. After they've put together this critical intel, the next step is straightforward - they reach out to us to schedule a meeting and discuss all the details.

Penetration testing isn't a one-size-fits-all affair. The timeline can swing anywhere from just a few days to several months, depending on the depth and breadth of the project. This exercise could involve delving deep into a comprehensive sweep of your systems and networks, spanning countless services, applications, and communication protocols.
While budgets, timelines, and the agreed-upon rules of engagement are critical, the real essence lies in the detailed examination of the information framework.
Our security consultants could burn through the entire budget and time merely trying to dodge your external or internal defense mechanisms, or maybe orchestrating a series of phishing scenarios till we find a way in. But what then? By the time we're in, the clock might have nearly run out, leaving scant moments for a thorough review of the designated systems.
This is why, in many cases, granting us direct access, be it through a VPN or by embedding a device within the internal network, makes more sense. It guarantees that every system within our radar gets the attention and scrutiny it rightfully deserves.
Delivering top-notch penetration testing for a digital infrastructure goes beyond just being aware of the latest security tools; it's about deploy them with effectiveness and precision.

It's this blend of deep knowledge, hands-on experience, and judicious tool selection that drives our comprehensive and effective penetration testing process.
The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is a universally accessible and open industrial standard used by Logisek, alongside numerous other cybersecurity organizations, to evaluate and communicate the severity and characteristics of vulnerabilities. The CVSS rating oscillates between 0.0 and 10.0, with the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) dictating the manner of assessing the risk rating, contingent on the severity of vulnerabilities. The corresponding risk ratings in line with CVSS v3.1 scores are as follows:
The assessment and establishment of CVSS ratings hinge on various attributes of vulnerabilities, encompassing their impact, exploitability, components affected, and the requirements for authentication.
The National Vulnerability Database (NVD) maintains an updated repository of all acknowledged vulnerabilities, denoted as CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures), delivering corresponding ratings along with other pertinent information. The CVE list has its roots in the MITRE Corporation, a nonprofit entity that spearheaded the development of the CVE database back in 1999. MITRE furnishes vital details for each vulnerability and guarantees automatic synchronization of its database with the National Vulnerability Database (NVD).
Logisek prides itself on delivering exhaustive insights into the findings from our security assessments. Every report kicks off with a deep dive summary, offering a bird's-eye view of the uncovered issues and highlighting the predominant risks within the specified parameters.
The report then delves into how each vulnerability's severity and associated risk were determined, offering clarity to help prioritize mitigation steps. It encompasses the boundaries of the assessment, the tactics applied during testing, and wraps up with a thorough breakdown of all discoveries, detailing a summary for each, pinpointing affected areas, laying out steps for reproduction, and suggesting fixes.
Before the report lands in your hands, it goes through a rigorous Quality Assurance (QA) check to ensure its accuracy, relevancy, and clarity.
We believe it's wise to ask for a sample report from your penetration testing service before diving into a full-blown project. After all, a report laden with technical terms and convoluted language may not serve you well. Hence, clarity and comprehensibility should be front and center when selecting a service provider.
The time required to complete a penetration testing assessment is primarily dictated by the scope of the test.
Several factors can influence the duration of the assessment, such as the network's size, whether the test is internal or external, and if the test is to be conducted with or without credentials.
The size of the network plays a significant role. For instance, a larger network with an array of services and systems would necessitate a more extended time period for comprehensive assessment compared to a smaller network.
Moreover, the use of credentials can amplify the time required to complete the penetration testing.
In addition, other factors like the complexity of the environment, dependencies of the applications, and specific client requirements can also have an impact on the duration of the penetration test.
In summary, the length of a penetration testing assessment is influenced by these factors and should be considered during the planning and execution stages of the test.
