Network Penetration Testing
Cybersecurity breaches and attacks are unplanned and cost money.
Consequently, we cater to your cybersecurity needs and we’re affordable.
MainNerve ensures that all penetration testing follows the methodology defined in the NIST SP-115 for network and wireless penetration testing as well as OWASP for web application penetration testing. These methodologies ensure a clear, well defined approach to the testing of your infrastructure, applications and employees.
The planning stage of penetration testing will include communication with the key points of contact. MainNerve will address the scope of the project to include project objectives and limitations. We will provide rules of engagement before work begins.
Using a blend of custom, open source, and commercial software tools, MainNerve will attempt to exploit vulnerable hosts. The aim is to access sensitive information, establish a persistent presence on the system, and abuse the trust of related systems.
MainNerve will use industry-approved tools and techniques to perform an extensive search for information on the client. The goal is to identify technical data about the external and/or internal network infrastructure for targeting.
MainNerve’s wireless penetration test will examine your wireless network, similar to a regular network penetration test. It will focus on the WLAN and help identify any vulnerabilities with that wireless network. The tester will attempt exploits and provide detailed results on those tests.
Web application penetration testing is designed to assess and test the state of your web-facing applications, and provide actionable remediation recommendations for enhancing your security to both your customers and users. This testing ensures that your applications will meet the security demands of your internal policies and customer assessment requirements. API testing can also be performed when required.
MainNerve’s Security Risk Assessment is designed to provide you valuable information about your policies and procedures, and the safeguards you’ve implemented. We’ll help you find deficiencies in your risk management program that will allow you to set up a plan to improve it.
What Our Clients Say
We value our professional relationship with MainNerve. Their employees are friendly and extremely responsive. They always take care of our clients as if they were their own, while maintaining the penetration and social engineering testing. We couldn’t ask for a better Cybersecurity partner.
In 12 years of tests, you are the first company that found anything higher than a low risk. Phone and cameras were never discovered in the test, let alone accessed. Great to always get a different perspective from a test.
This is a very well written report! Very impressive!
The report looks great!
I felt the whole project was done in a professional manner.
Sheena was very kind, quick with replies, and patient with my questions. That is why I also introduced your service to other company.
All the correspondence with MainNerve was great and the staff were very professional and helpful.
I appreciate the level of detail your team incorporates into your findings.
MainNerve crew is top notch.
Working with MainNerve has been great and I look forward to a long term partnership to maintain the integrity of our operations.
We had our backs to the wall on a “government” contact with an unreasonable time frame. MainNerve team understood the gravity of the problem and made the impossible happen. We are extremely grateful.
This is the second time we have engaged MainNerve. Both times they have done a great job and I would recommend them for pen testing. They were prompt and delivered the reporting required by our customers at part of our data security program. We will certainly use them in the future.
MainNerve provided an extremely fast turn around when speed was our biggest factor. The project went smoothly and I would highly recommend them!
I would highly recommend MainNerve for all of your network system testing needs. From my initial contact, all the way through the end of the services I received, everyone I encountered was courteous, professional, knowledgeable, patient, and very helpful. As a small business owner, who’s business was shut down as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, MainNerve’s service fees were extremely reasonable making it affordable to ensure my network is secure from hackers. I will definitely be a repeat customer!! Thanks MainNerve!!
Sheena was great in guiding us though what was a new process for us. A client had asked us for a third party penn test report and she was very helpful in helping us choose the correct product and in determining the scope.
I was quite pleasantly surprised by the engagement. I think the thing I liked best about it was that everyone at MainNerve really took the time to listen and understand what we did, why we were doing it, and our business goals. It gave us confidence that we were in the right hands.
