Network Penetration Testing
Cybersecurity breaches and attacks are unplanned and cost money.
Consequently, we cater to your cybersecurity needs and we’re affordable.
All of our Network Penetration Tests go beyond standards – such as NIST – and your test will come with a detailed final report.
Your detailed final report will include an executive summary, a listing of vulnerabilities discovered, remediation recommendations, and more. A letter of accreditation can be provided upon your request.
Throughout the network penetration testing process, automated, as well as comprehensive manual testing, will be used to identify all network and business-logic related vulnerabilities.
Hack yourself! You want someone with decades of national level expertise and industry leading resources combined with a focus on best practices and security control testing, right? We Have the Nerve.
Here at MainNerve, our penetration testing truly simulates the attacks of a real-world malicious hacker–which includes specialized vulnerability assessments, automated scans, and manual techniques.
These cyber services all work together to reduce false positives and identify application security gaps.
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 regular communication with the client’s key points of contact to understand the overall scope of the project to include project objectives, rules of engagement and limitations.
MainNerve will perform an extensive search for open source information using tools and techniques to gather information on the client with the explicit goal of identifying technical data about the external and/or internal network infrastructure for targeting.
Exploiting vulnerabilities using a blend of custom, open source, and commercial software tools to exploit vulnerable hosts with the explicit intention of accessing sensitive information, establishing a persistent presence on the system, and exploiting the trusts of related systems.
MainNerve’s compliance solutions are designed to help fill one of the biggest challenges for businesses: staying in alignment with the exhaustive list of Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC) requirements. From PCI DSS and HIPAA, to CJIS and FINRA, MainNerve can help your business navigate the GRC landscape with specialized penetration 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.
Social engineering, in the context of information security, is commonly defined as the of persuasion and/or manipulation techniques in order to influence people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. Ensure that your business is secure by testing and evaluating your employees against general phishing and “spear-phishing” attacks.
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.
