Systematic Protection
Our Process

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.

Considered the most critical step in penetration testing, our reports communicate all penetration test findings in a comprehensive and clear report to the client.

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.

Investment Management Company

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.

Vice President
Actuarial Firm
Our local partner that normally provides us with vulnerability and penetration testing was unable to help us this year. We were lucky enough to find MainNerve as a solution to our problem. MainNerve was very responsive to us and worked under a very tight timeframe to perform vulnerability and penetration testing for us and help us out of a tough situation. They went above and beyond. They provided us with some additional guidance in other security areas as well. We will continue to use MainNerve each year now for our security testing needs. We are glad we found them.
Owner
Dental Office

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.
