A penetration test (or "pentest" ) is an authorized attack against your IT systems to identify and exploit their security weaknesses, in order to evaluate the real-world risks they pose to your business.
The goal of a pentest is to proactively uncover your weakest links and identify the extent of damage a real malicious attacker could cause your business.Our expert Tier3 penetration testers will analyse your cyber security vulnerabilities so you can defend your organisation against cyber crime and prevent data breaches.
Our fixed-price testing packages are suitable for any organisation that wants to identify vulnerabilities targeted by cyber attackers.
Results are presented in an easy-to-understand report, ideal for small and medium-sized organisations, or those with no prior security testing experience. Organisations that need greater reassurance should consider a level 2 test. These are more complex assessments that painstakingly identify security vulnerabilities in your hardware and software, systems or web applications and then try to exploit them.
Tier3 Cyber Security Services is a CREST Approved Pen testing company operating in Pakistan. CREST (Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers) presents the cyber security industry standard of practice, service and customer satisfaction. CREST-approved standard ensure we have all the proper processes and controls in place to prevent potential outsider and malicious insider attacks. The CREST accreditation is confirmation that our penetration testing team has the correct, up-to-date skills, strategies, and techniques to give you the best assessment of your cybersecurity.
Remote working penetration tests
A remote workforce leaves you open to many more threats than you faced with office-based staff. With remote working now established as the norm for many companies, cyber security has never been more critical.Our remote testing services will probe your remote access solutions and internal infrastructure that criminals might exploit.Our remote access penetration test combines a web application and infrastructure test.
Performed remotely, it assesses your externally facing remote access solutions, looking for:
- Inadequate/insecure authentication.
- Weak configurations.
- Default settings.
- Outdated software and patching levels.
Remote Compromise Penetration Test
Our remote compromise penetration test will identify:
- Weak configurations (e.g., default settings).
- Outdated software and patching levels.
- Insecure authentication.
- Weak permissions.
- Means of bypassing antivirus software.
Infrastructure and network penetration tests
Infrastructure tests probe for security flaws affecting your operating systems and network architecture, such as:
- Servers and hosts.
- Firewalls and wireless access points.
- Network protocols.
There are two types of tests: external and internal.
External infrastructure (network) penetration tests
External infrastructure tests combine automated scans and manual assessments to examine the vulnerabilities that might allow external attackers to access your systems.
Internal infrastructure (network) penetration tests
Internal infrastructure tests attempt to identify network and operating system vulnerabilities from the point of view of anyone with insider access to your systems, applications or data, such as employees or contractors.
Social engineering and phishing tests
Social engineering penetration tests highlight vulnerabilities involving your employees and help inform appropriate staff awareness training.
A social engineering penetration test will help you:
- Establish the publicly available information that an attacker could obtain about your organisation.
- Evaluate how susceptible your employees are to social engineering attacks.
- Determine the effectiveness of your information security policy and your cyber security controls at identifying and preventing social engineering attacks.
Phishing penetration tests
A simulated phishing attack establishes your employees ’ vulnerability to phishing emails and helps inform appropriate staff awareness training.
We use various techniques, sending an email to your staff, asking them to take actions that could result in them handing over sensitive information, such as usernames and passwords.
Our pentesting can deploy latest ai techniques of Prompt Engineering to generate large language models which can be used to craft emails most suitable for spear phishing attacks.
We will then assess their responses and create a report to help you understand where staff training needs to be focused.
Wireless network penetration tests
Wireless tests examine security vulnerabilities affecting your wireless networks, including:
- Information leakage and signal leakage.
- Encryption vulnerabilities, such as wireless sniffing and session hijacking.
- Weak access controls.
Web application & software Penetration tests
Web application tests identify security vulnerabilities introduced during the development of software or websites, including:
- Assessing web applications for vulnerability to attacks, such as XSS (cross-site scripting).
- Confirming the secure configuration of web browsers and identifying features that can cause vulnerabilities.
- Safeguarding web server security and database server security.
Vulnerability scanning is an automated process that identifies, but does not assess, security flaws in your systems that cyber criminals might exploit.
With a monthly subscription to our Vulnerability Scan service, you can:
- Scan for thousands of vulnerabilities, helping you see precisely what criminal hackers can see.
- Receive a detailed report that gives you a breakdown of all your weak spots that need attention.
- Act quickly to fix your security weaknesses before criminal hackers find and exploit them.
- We will Run and rerun scans each month for you to keep your security updated with latest exploits and vulnerabilities.
Tier3 uses the same tools and tactics used by the bad guys against your business. We employ both manual and automated testing methods, and take advantage of both custom-built and industry available standard tools.
Depending on the type of penetration test (pentest), Tier3 experts assume the role of malicious outsiders or insiders to your organization, and perform activities that simulate the actions that real cyber criminals would take. We conduct tailor-made penetration testing against your organization. This means our penetration tests are designed according to your business, no matter how big or small.
Tier3 Penetration Test services are available in Pakistan, in major cities like Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Multan, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Quetta, Peshawar and across the country.Our services can be provided remotely. We aim to provide easy to understand reports, that can clearly convey the issues and remediation recommendations to both your business and technical teams.
Penetration Testing Tools
Building a Red team requires finding the right personnels with the malicious mindset, technical talent, and vision to drive the program to success. An impactful and technically competent red team will increase your organization’s cyber security posture by performing holistic testing and emulating real-world threat actors.
Penetration tools or Red Team tool kit will help pentesters, red team operators and ethical hackers test the resilience of computing infrastructure by simulating a real-world attack, without any of the associated risks. They are especially effective in defending an organization against unknown or “zero-day” threats. A good penetration testing software must be able to give detailed and comprehensive reports. Penetration testing does not just end at just finding vulnerabilities in a network. The operator or administrator must be able to understand the problems in the network. Without this knowledge, it would be challenging to plan the following action.
Tier3 can help you acquire top end penetration testing tools and softwares for inhouse penetration tests and your red team operations feel free to contact us or view list of penetration testing tools available to our valuable customers in Pakistan.
Tier3 helps and consults organizations in Pakistan for development of their inhouse red and blue teams to build and maintain secure, high-quality IT infrastructure and networks while minimizing risks, maximizing speed and productivity. We are recognized leaders in cyber security, providing analysis, assessments, and dynamic solutions that enables you to quickly find and fix vulnerabilities and defects in proprietary code, open source components, applications behavior, logic or networks.
