Penetration Testing Solutions
Penetration testing serves as a security exercise during which Cyber Security experts strive to pinpoint and exploit vulnerabilities within a computer system. Penetration testers employ the same tools, techniques, and methodologies as attackers to uncover and illustrate the potential business consequences of weaknesses in your systems. Beyond merely preventing unauthorized access, well-executed penetration testing creates real-world scenarios that assess how effectively current defenses could withstand a comprehensive cyber onslaught.
The primary objective of penetration testing is to identify security vulnerabilities within networks, machines, or software. Detecting these vulnerabilities enables system or software administrators to rectify or minimize weaknesses before malicious parties can exploit them. Here are several additional advantages of conducting regular penetration tests:
- Revealing Concealed System Vulnerabilities Before Malevolent Actors Discover Them
- Reducing Costs of Remediation and
- Minimizing Network Downtime
- Safeguarding the Company’s Reputation
- Enhancing Cyber Threat Visibility
- Mitigating the Impact of Cyberattacks
- Leading to Improved User Awareness and Training
- Staying Ahead of Emerging Threats

Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing Services
Our approach to Penetration Testing Solutions
The vulnerability analysis stage encompasses the documentation and evaluation of vulnerabilities that have been identified as a consequence of the preceding network penetration testing phases. This entails analyzing the outcomes generated by diverse security tools and manual testing methods. At this juncture, a compilation of noteworthy vulnerabilities, potentially dubious services, and elements meriting deeper investigation has been formulated and assessed for subsequent scrutiny. Fundamentally, this is where the groundwork for the attack plan is laid out.
Internal Penetration Testing
An internal penetration test emulates the role of an attacker from inside the network. The penetration tester will seek to gain access to hosts through lateral movement, compromise domain user and admin accounts, and exfiltrate sensitive data. Once domain admin access is achieved, or the attacker can gain control over the organization’s most valuable information, the test is generally concluded. Internal Pen Testing can also include privilege escalation, malware spreading, information leakage, and other malicious activities.
From the initial phase of the internal penetration test, penetration testers will perform internal reconnaissance, gathering details and information about the network. After enough pertinent detail is gathered, suitable attacks are launched in attempt to complete testing objectives and escalate privileges. This approach almost always involves leveraging discovered vulnerabilities found in systems to obtain control over the domain.
External Penetration Testing
CertCube Labs utilizes an array of methods to assess your perimeter defenses against potential breaches by attackers.
They employ manual testing that replicates current threats, showcasing impact through tactics like pivoting, post-exploitation maneuvers, and data compromise. CertCube Labs evaluates your environment’s preparedness against threat actors with their unique tools and the expertise of their innovative adversarial specialists. They go beyond a simple pass/fail evaluation, offering comprehensive insights into risks with ranked severity and actionable recommendations.
CertCube Labs specializes in external penetration testing, where they analyze an organization’s externally facing assets. Their approach involves attempting unauthorized access to sensitive data via channels such as email and company websites. Their strategies encompass password brute-forcing, targeted exploits against operating systems and services, and phishing attacks.
Within external penetration testing, CertCube Labs’ experts strive to infiltrate the internal network by capitalizing on vulnerabilities in external assets. Once the perimeter is breached, in alignment with the engagement’s parameters, they might execute further maneuvers to access internal network resources. This process is commonly known as pivoting or lateral movement.
WEB/MOBILE APPLICATION PENETRATION TESTING
CertCube Labs employs a structured three-phase approach to evaluate your web/mobile application security:
- Application Reconnaissance: This initial phase involves gathering information about the application’s architecture and components.
- Vulnerability Discovery: In this step, vulnerabilities are identified within the application’s design and code.
- Exploitation of Vulnerabilities: CertCube Labs tests the application’s vulnerabilities to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data.
Their testing encompasses all major mobile platforms, including iOS, Android, and Windows.For web application penetration testing, CertCube Labs follows industry standards such as the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) and the OWASP Testing Guide. These frameworks provide a solid foundation for their assessment methodology. In addition to addressing OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities, their skilled pentesters manually evaluate specific business logic associated with the application, uncovering weaknesses in data validation or integrity checks. These nuances are often beyond the reach of automated scans.
CertCube Labs’ expertise extends beyond identifying common API and web vulnerabilities. Their experienced pentesters meticulously assess the risks associated with your mobile application. They utilize the OWASP Mobile Top 10 and other established methodologies to ensure a comprehensive security evaluation. Partnering with CertCube Labs offers you the assurance of thorough and tailored security assessments from a trusted pentest provider.
Adversaries employ various tactics to breach defenses, making physical security controls equally vital. We offer physical testing to ensure a holistic understanding of your vulnerabilities.
Evaluate your employees’ ability to withstand social engineering and physical assaults, including scenarios like tailgating and badge cloning.
Approach building security controls with a threat actor’s perspective, engaging in activities such as lock-picking, manipulating badge readers, and uncovering control blind spots.
Certcube Labs offers flexible objectives and rules of engagement tailored to your organization’s specific requirements and preferences.
Wireless Penetration Testing
CertCube Labs specializes in identifying and mitigating the risks and vulnerabilities that exist within your wireless network infrastructure. The team conducts a thorough assessment that includes evaluating potential weaknesses such as deauthentication attacks, incorrect configurations, session reuse, and the presence of unauthorized wireless devices. These evaluations provide a comprehensive understanding of the security posture of your wireless network.
Wireless networks are often overlooked when it comes to security testing, but they can pose significant risks if not adequately protected. A wireless penetration test carried out by CertCube Labs is designed to delve into the intricacies of your wireless network’s security, simulating real-world attack scenarios to identify potential points of exploitation.
One critical aspect of the wireless penetration test is unveiling how your wireless connections might inadvertently expose internal networks that were thought to be segmented. This insight helps you address potential vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by malicious actors. Furthermore, the test aims to uncover pathways that attackers could potentially use to breach your wireless network, gaining access to both its clients and potentially finding a route into your internal network.
What sets CertCube Labs apart is their security-first approach to testing. They go beyond merely checking off compliance mandates and focus on enhancing the overall security of your systems. By engaging in a wireless penetration test with CertCube Labs, you are taking proactive steps to identify, address, and mitigate potential vulnerabilities, ultimately bolstering the protection of your wireless network and the systems connected to it.
