Reasons

for a

Pentest

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

1

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.

2

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.

3

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.

4

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.

5

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.

6

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

.
7

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.

8

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.

9

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.

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:

  • Reconciliation of contact details
  • Test period with start date and end date
  • Review of the exact handling and scoope of the pentest
  • Technical presentation by the customer (test subject)
  • Making technical details available (e.g. documentation of components, accesses)
  • Agreement on the environment of the pentest and the exact methodology
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
  • Wireless Penetration Test
  • Red Teaming
  • Social Engineering
  • Cloud Pentests
  • Active Directory 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 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 a black box test?

In black-box testing, the pentester attempts to attack the target without any prior knowledge of addresses, systems, applications and processes. The main argument for this approach is that this scenario comes closest to the real world and thus simulates a real attack scenario. However, this is only partially true because a real attacker does not have just a week or two like a contracted pentester, but has the entire time, including months or years, to prepare the attack. In fact, some of the most successful hacker attacks have taken place over a period of up to 12 months.
This bias means that black-box testing is often inconclusive and gives customers a false sense of security. Redlings therefore recommends black-box testing only in exceptional cases. The argument that attackers (must) implement a black-box approach also only works to a limited extent, since a long preparation time can lead to extensive internal informtions.

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 is the scope of a penetration test defined?

The scope of a penetration test should always be jointly adapted to the specifics of the company as well as the system to be tested.

In the case of a Web application, the scope often consists of the server and operational landscape as well as the user interfaces and APIs. Often, there are enterprise applications that have been specifically was written and that you want to have looked at.

Other considerations also play a role in a network pentest. In particular, the scope you choose should include mission-critical systems that would Could compromise security in the event of a compromise, e.g. because they store sensitive data, such as user information, passwords or customer data.

What is a white box test?

In a white-box test, the pentester receives all relevant information about the target system(s). The advantage is that this approach saves time - and thus costs. It is also generally true that white-box tests are more effective in improving the security of IT systems and should usually be preferred.
Generally speaking, black-box testing can be a suitable means of uncovering security issues against a specification (e.g., a Web API interface), but is very poorly suited to identifying flaws within specific components. In the latter case, white-box testing should be the preferred means.
