External Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Identifying security vulnerabilities within your critical external networks.

What is External Infrastructure Penetration Testing?

An external infrastructure penetration test will assess your externally facing networks to identify any security vulnerabilities and weaknesses.

As these networks are publicly exposed to the internet, malicious attackers from around the world are able to target and potentially compromise these systems – with unlimited time restraints.


What Will Be Assessed?

Ruptura InfoSecurity will assess the security posture of your key externally facing resources. These may include:
  • VPN Gateways
  • Azure / AWS / GCP / OCL Services (Cloud)
  • Remote Desktop Gateways / Citrix / RDS
  • Network Devices

Benefits of External Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Externally facing networks and environments are often used by organisations to allow employees to connect to internal resources. Examples of these could be: VPN servers, remote desktop gateways or various cloud services and gateways. As these environments often allow access into internal and critical systems, it is imperative that they are appropriately secured. 

Attackers have an almost unlimited time period to attack these services, which could ultimately lead to both reputational and financial damage if successful. 

Our CREST approved external network penetration testing service can provide you with insight into security vulnerabilities within your externally facing assets. We can:

  • Identify security vulnerabilities relating to insecure configurations.
  •  Identify flaws within critical services and network devices.
  •  Highlight areas where security best practice is not being followed.
  • Provide assurance that an expert team has reviewed the external infrastructure for security vulnerabilities and advised accordingly.
