Reasons

for a

Pentest

Every Redlings pentest is subject to strict guidelines and ethical principles.

1

Implementation of Security Policy

Are important patches missing or are applications and operating systems not hardened? If your pentesters can show that applications and network areas with good implementation have fewer security vulnerabilities, this often has the effect of motivating them to follow the security guidelines.

2

Detection of vulnerabilities

Penetration tests attack your network and web applications like a hacker would - but without causing any damage. This allows you to find and fix vulnerabilities before the attackers do.

3

Evidence-based investment

Investments in security measures should always be supported with concrete evidence to demonstrate the value to the business. By showing your leadership team the value of an investment, you can justify your need for more resources

.
4

Konsequenzen eines Understand Cybersecurity Incidents

Penetration testing gives you unvarnished feedback on the possible consequences of an IT security incident such as a ransomware attack.

5

Increase the effectiveness of your security investments

Often, our penetration testers uncover unused potential of existing security technologies. The performance of security systems can often be significantly increased as a result.

6

Compliance requirements

Regulations such as PCI-DSS, but also ISO 27001/2 and others, may require regular penetration tests. Some contractual regulations may also contain such a requirement.

7

Training of the internal IT team

The results of a penetration test can help your developers and administrators make fewer mistakes. A pentest detects misconfigurations, programming errors and other vulnerabilities.

8

Priorisierung von IT-Risiken

With a penetration test you can determine which existing vulnerabilities have the greatest impact on your web applications and network. on your web applications and network. Use your resources and time more efficiently.

9

Protect your most important data and the trust of your customers

Company and customer data is considered the lifeblood of a business and can be extremely damaging in the wrong hands. With a pentest, your company can better protect its data assets and, if possible, prevent attacks.

Steps for a Penetration Test

1

Kick-Off

The project schedule is planned and prepared during the joint kick-off meeting. Among other things, the following points will be discussed:

  • Contact information exchange
  • Start and end date, test time window if applicable
  • Confirmation of the exact scope of the project
  • Presentation of the test item
  • Providing information for the testers (e.g. API documentation in case of an API test)
  • Agreement on the test environment and procedures
2

Penetration Test Execution

Now the security test takes place. Here, it usually consists of one (or more) commissioned test modules.

  • Pentest Network (internal)
  • Pentest Network (external)
  • Web Application & Web-API penetration test
  • Cloud Pentests
  • Red Teaming
  • Active Directory Security Assessment
  • Wifi Pentest
  • IoT/Hardware Security Assessment
3

Report

The test results are compiled in a report. This will include, among others, the sections listed below:

  • Short version of the results and presentation of the framework parameters
  • List and presentation of the detected security issues with assessment of the risk as well as suggestions for correction
  • Detailed documentation of discovered security vulnerabilities
4

Final Discussion

The results of the performed pentest are discussed in a final meeting. We are aware that the aware that the security problems found are only a first step. Concrete follow-up measures to to increase security must be defined and implemented.

Häufige Fragen

What is a penetration test?

A penetration test, or "pentest" for short, is a security check that emulates an attack by a malicious party on a network or application to identify security vulnerabilities. This test is coordinated in advance and conducted in such a way that no system is damaged. At the end of the test, you will receive a report that includes the problems and vulnerabilities found, along with suggestions on how to fix them.

How long does a pentest take?

Similar to cost, the duration of penetration testing depends on several factors. Penetration testing is a hands-on assessment that does not lend itself to short, quick sprints. At Redlings, we tend to have pentesting projects start at week or so, but many projects can extend over a much longer period of time. extend over a significantly longer period of time.

Ethical hacker, penetration tester, and white hat hacker - what's the difference?

The terms "penetration tester" (also "pentester" for short), "white hat hacker" and "ethical hacker" are often used interchangeably. The terms "ethical hacker" and "white hat hacker" cover all hacking activity aimed at improving IT security. What they all have in common is that activities that are illegal or do not comply with the Code of Ethics are refrained from.
Formally, a penetration test is only an "ethical hack" with very clearly agreed rules, a formal procedure as well as a defined goal.

How much of Redling's penetration testing is automated, how much is manual?

One question that is not asked often enough is how much of the testing is automated and how much is manual. Automated tools, especially at the beginning of a project, can save save a pentester a lot of time and their use also depends on the project. However, experience shows that about 90-95% of the pentest is "manual work".

This is not to say that automated vulnerability scanners do not add value; Vulnerability scans are quick and easy tools that should be used on a regular basis to should be used to identify missing patches or outdated software in larger environments.

What is the difference between a penetration test and a vulnerability scan?

Both penetration testing and automated vulnerability scanning are useful tools for identifying technical risks and security vulnerabilities. Although they are different testing methods, they complement each other and should both be performed.

A vulnerability scan is an automated, low-cost method for testing common network and server vulnerabilities. This is sometimes referred to as automated pen testing. There are many automated tools available, and most can be easily configured by the end user to scan for published vulnerabilities on a scheduled basis. While an automated vulnerability scan is very efficient and cost-effective at identifying common vulnerabilities such as missing patches, service misconfigurations, and other known vulnerabilities, they are not as accurate at verifying the correctness of vulnerabilities, nor do they fully determine impact through exploitation. Automated scanners are more prone to reporting false positives (falsely reported vulnerabilities) and false negatives (unidentified vulnerabilities, especially those affecting web applications). Automated vulnerability scanning is mandated by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
Well-known vulnerability scanners include and OpenVAS. Examples of scanners that specialize in finding web application vulnerabilities are Netsparker Security Scanner and Acunetix Vulnerability Scanner.

A penetration test focuses on the environment as a whole. In many ways, it picks up where scanners leave off to provide a comprehensive analysis of the entire security posture. Although scripts and tools are used by a penetration tester, their use is largely limited to reconnaissance activities. The majority of a penetration test is manual in nature. A penetration test identifies vulnerabilities that scanners cannot detect, such as vulnerabilities in wireless systems, vulnerabilities in web applications, and vulnerabilities that have not yet been disclosed. In addition, a penetration test involves attempts to securely exploit vulnerabilities, escalate privileges, and ultimately demonstrate how an attacker could gain access to sensitive information assets. Penetration testing also often involves the use of company-specific "test scenarios."

Penetration testing and automated vulnerability scans both serve a purpose, and both types of tests belong in a comprehensive vulnerability assessment program. Automated vulnerability scans should be performed at regular intervals, ideally at least weekly, while network penetration tests should be scheduled quarterly or when significant changes to the environment are planned.

What do we need to provide before a pentest?

At the beginning of the process, we try to familiarize ourselves with your company and the scope of work so that we are able to provide an accurate quote. We gather this information on purpose so that we don't come back and ask for more testing time (and additional costs). The more information you are willing to share with us, the better we can provide an estimate.

However, some customers want a black box approach, where only a limited amount of information is provided, to simulate a real attack and the response to it. In this case, we still need to capture the size/complexity, that is required for testing, and therefore have some fundamental questions about scope.
