Penetration Testing

NSI Global’s penetration testing (ethical hacking) service tests the security of your IT systems, by recognising and exploiting weaknesses. This process involves the profiling of your organisation from the perspective of its most likely threats, business processes, and technology that supports your operations.

Doing so will allow us to determine the flexibility of your environment to malicious attempts to penetrate your systems. All methodologies are based on industry best practices. We use tools similar to those used by attackers on the internet and tools that are developed in-house. We do not use scanning tools such as vulnerability assessment tools as attack scenarios are often overlooked. Types of penetration testing includes:

  • White box pen testing (where the tester is provided with full network and system information),
  • Black box testing (where the tester is provided with no network and system information, similar to an unprivileged user so as to simulate an authentic attack), and
  • Grey box testing (where the tester is only provided limited information such as login credentials).

Web, Mobile Application and Network Penetration Testing

If you have web or mobile applications as part of your organisation, NSI believes it is vital that they be subject to a penetration test. A web, mobile application or network penetration test is a simulation of a real attack.

The tests (which include authenticated, unauthenticated, and API tests on internal and external networks) help find what security vulnerabilities can be exploited, if there are misconfigurations in your website’s API, and so on. NSI provides a detailed security report that will highlight existing vulnerabilities and how to mitigate them.

Cyber Services

Penetration Testing

NSI Global’s penetration testing (ethical hacking) service tests the security of your IT systems, by recognising and exploiting weaknesses.

Red Team Penetration Testing

Red Team Penetration Testing involves NSI’s Cyber Security Unit putting themselves in the place of a real, motivated attacker, throwing away the rule books.

Social Engineering Testing

By deliberately influencing an employee’s good intentions or their inquisitiveness, they then gain access into the computer systems and networks of the organisation.

Wireless Security Penetration Testing

Wireless networks are vital for providing access to systems and data, but they also can also act as an entry point for cybercriminals. NSI Believes that the only way to ensure that your organisation is not exposed to wireless security risks is to perform regular penetration testing exercises.

Web, Mobile App, Network, Wireless Security Penetration Testing

The NSI Cyber Security Unit performs web application, mobile application, and network penetration testing services to discover security vulnerabilities that may affect your business.

Application Security Testing

Application security is able to be assessed by NSI’s Cyber Security Unit for both web (browser based) and non-web (client/server, command line, etc) based systems. Our team looks for any software defects, bugs and logic faults.

Network Security Testing

Organisations that fail to implement a strong network security framework leave themselves vulnerable to cyber attacks.

Remote Access Testing

A remote access assessment is a type of penetration test designed to identify and help comprehensively address security vulnerabilities that can result as a consequence of employees working outside of the office, either from a hotel, airport or at home.

Governance, Risk and Compliance

NSI understands today’s heavily regulated landscape, organisations are under pressure to meet increasingly complex compliance requirements. We do this by assessing clients' policies and procedures including developing new policies and procedures, and create awareness and training programs.

Don’t run the risk with an inferior service.

So if you have recently deleted an SMS or picture; are trying to determine if an employee has sent documents to a third party using a company issued phone or computer; or have a pending court case, contact us to find out how we can help.
