Internal Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Identifying security vulnerabilities within your critical internal networks

What is Internal Infrastructure Penetration Testing?

An internal infrastructure penetration test will assess your critical internal networks to identify security vulnerabilities and weaknesses.

These are the environments that may be used on a daily basis to: transmit sensitive data, connect to business critical services and to store highly confidential information.


What Will Be Assessed?

Ruptura InfoSecurity will assess the security posture of various aspects of your internal infrastructure. These may include:
  • User Workstations
  • Domain Resources

Our team of infrastructure testers specialise in assessing corporate networks of all sizes and complexity. Ruptura InfoSecurity will use both industry approved tools and custom built ‘in-house’ tools to assess your internal infrastructure, ensuring you have a full picture of your most critical environments.

On-Site Consultation

Benefits of Internal Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Internal networks and environments are often where a companies most critical assets are located. Within these internal environments, there is often a large plethora of technologies, operating systems and services – all of which will be assessed within an internal infrastructure penetration test. 

Although these environments are usually segregated from the internet through various controls and network devices, they often are riddled with security vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to compromise your entire organisation. 

Our CREST approved internal infrastructure penetration testing service can provide you with insight into security vulnerabilities within what could be your most critical assets. We can:

  • Identify security vulnerabilities relating to insecure network configurations.
  •  Identify critical flaws within critical services and network devices.
  •  Highlight attack paths, once an attacker has a foothold within the internal environment.
  • Provide assurance that an expert team has reviewed the internal infrastructure for security vulnerabilities and advised accordingly.
