WiFi Penetration Testing

WiFi is Internet on the go, without coverage. Let us cover your WiFi testing needs.

Identify Wireless Security Vulnerabilities

Simply because of their nature, wireless networks are inherently less secure than wired networks.

From rogue access points and weak encryption algorithms to customers that access your wireless networks, threats to WiFi networks are unique and the risk they pose for businesses can be significant. It is for this very reason that businesses must be cognizant of the security implications associated with an unsecured wireless network.

Our wireless penetration testing services can help you evaluate the security of your wireless implementations and we can provide you with remediation recommendations for improvement.

A Hybrid Approach

All of our WiFi 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 findings, risk ratings and remediation recommendations.  A letter of attestation can be provided upon your request.

Throughout the WiFi penetration testing process, automated as well as comprehensive manual testing will be used to identify all wireless network and business-logic related vulnerabilities.

Many people forget about their wireless network security, especially since they don’t often use it as they are hard-wired in.
Systematic Protection
Our Process

Many organizations use WiFi networks for better employee collaboration and customer satisfaction as guests. WiFi networks can be less secure because of broadcasting the network outside of the organization. Additionally, if the access points aren’t set up correctly, attackers can gain access to the network. If the WiFi network isn’t segmented from the other networks within the organization, an unauthorized user could gather valuable company information. MainNerve’s WiFi penetration test can help identify these vulnerabilities with our state of the art testing methodology.

Planning

The planning phase of the WiFi penetration testing process includes establishing the overall timeline of the WiFi security test, whether or not the test will be performed using White, Gray, or Black Box methodologies, communicating about on- and off-limit access points, and creating the Rules of Engagement (ROE).

Discovery

MainNerve will perform extensive enumeration and footprinting of the wireless target environments to identify and verify all access points. MainNerve will also determine the encryption types used across the wireless environment. At this point, key targets will then be selected for exploitation during the attack phase. If, during the discovery phase, unencrypted networks are discovered, clear-text transmissions will be captured and reassembled to identify user credentials and other sensitive information.

Attack

The attack phase of the WiFi penetration test process is where exploitation of  vulnerabilities occurs. MainNerve may initiate several attacks depending on the wireless environment. These attacks can include man-in-the-middle and brute force attacks, exploitation of rogue access points, session hijacking, and more. MainNerve will try to exploit potential vulnerabilities by utilizing a blend of custom, open source, and commercial software tools. MainNerve will try to exploit a vulnerable host with the explicit intention of accessing sensitive information, establishing a persistent presence on the network, and exploiting the trusts of related systems.

Reporting

At MainNerve, we consider the final phase of the WiFi penetration testing process, reporting, to be the most crucial and instrumental step. During this phase, we take great care to ensure we effectively communicate the value of our service and findings as thoroughly as possible. Our main goal is to ensure that all information from the WiFi security assessment is clearly understood and that a roadmap toward remediation/mitigation is well defined. A comprehensive final report detailing all testing information and remediation recommendations along with an executive summary is securely delivered during this step.

What Our Clients Say

CIO
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.

Principal
Technology Company

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.

President
Insurance Administrator

Always nice to have a dependable vendor that is fully committed and reasonably priced.

IT Manager
Insurance

It’s been a great partnership for the last 4 years. When NYDFS Cybersecurity regulation was announced back in 2017, I did not have much experience in the security fields such as risk assessment, vulnerability assessment, and Penetration testing and was not comfortable creating the plan. I was searching for information on the internet and came across multiple companies. I contacted MainNerve and they explained the process as well as their background which gave me comfort in the overall process as well as the confidence in the MainNerve team. Also, the cost was very reasonable. Going through the signing, planning, assessment, testing, and reporting, they were in constant contact with me and updated me with steps they are taking and when I can expect the next milestone. When we had delays, they were patient and worked with us. We finished all the assessment and testing in the expected time and now we just do it annually. As our IT environment expands, we increase the scope of the testing, and MainNerve has been very flexible with our plans, budget, and timing. I have introduced the MainNerve to colleagues in other companies in NY and they are also satisfied with the service.
