Internal Penetration Testing Certified Experts • Real World Threats • Actionable Results

An internal penetration test emulates an attacker on the inside of your network. This could be either an attacker who is successful in breaching the perimeter through another method or a malicious insider. The goal of the engineer in this assessment is to gain root and/or domain administrator level access on the network, and gain access to sensitive files.

Some of the questions this test will answer include:

  • Once an attacker breaks into my network, what damage can they cause?
  • If an internal employee goes rogue, what can they access?
  • Can a lower privileged role gain access to more permissions?

Our internal penetration testing includes:

  • Active and Passive network reconnaissance including traffic sniffing, port scanning, LDAP enumeration, SMB enumeration, etc.
  • Vulnerability scan on all in-scope targets
  • Spoofing and man-in-the-middle attacks
  • Manual and automated exploit attempts
  • Shared resource enumeration
  • Password attacks

We are extremely happy with the depth and breadth of the test Triaxiom performed, their attention to detail, and the great write-up of vulnerabilities that were discovered. They found vulnerabilities that were overlooked by other companies we used in the past. In today’s challenging and evolving security environment, getting a clean bill of health is great, but being able to keep up with best practices and quickly remediate vulnerabilities is absolutely critical.  I’m very happy that we have an even more secure system and that we signed a three year commitment with Triaxiom Security.

We hired Triaxiom Security to help us meet our contractual obligations with the new DFARS clause. Our engineer had an extensive background in the government and in information security and was able to help us understand and apply the NIST 800-171 Requirements. Triaxiom Security was able to boost our compliance by 40% immediately and provided us with a roadmap to continue increasing our level of compliance.
