Wildcard Security Assessments
Internal/External Network Penetration Test
Wildcard engineers conduct penetration tests from external and internal networks. Attacks simulate real-world network attacks launched by an adversary. The tests validate the efficiency of your current defensive mechanisms while identifying any inadequacies.
Wildcard wireless assessments test the security controls associated with your wireless network. We examine resiliency of access points, the integrity of signals, authentication mechanisms, and encryption protocols to determine the strength of your wireless security posture.
Web Application Assessment
Our web application assessments utilize the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) framework to determine the security stance of a web application. When we conduct black box assessments of web applications, we test the controls around unauthenticated and authenticated sessions to exploit the application.
Wildcard can conduct a security review of your application code as a one-time project, or as continuous integration into your Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC). A code review is the most effective way to detect software issues that could be exploited by an attacker. Our process determines the risk created by application flaws.
The end user is often the weakest link in an organization’s information security and is commonly the initial attack vector. Our phishing campaign will test your users, the effectiveness of your security training program, and any anti-phishing technologies you have in place.
Security Assessment Methodology
The Wildcard security assessment team provides penetration testing services, sharing insight on how an attacker would use a sophisticated chain of techniques to exploit your information system. We simulate real-world techniques to breach your systems and processes to put you in a better position to detect and defend against a malicious actor.
We approach each assessment as a partnership with our customer. We will not only discover flaws, but we will continue to work with you as advisors to remediate issues which will minimize your attack surface. You will leave each assessment with knowledge of how you could be attacked, the extent of the impact, and what it would take to remediate the vulnerability.
Wildcard security assessments are more than a vulnerability scan, which is great at detecting well-known issues. Our experienced engineers provide context that no automated tool could. By digging deeper, we often show that what a scan would label a low-level problem is actually an issue that exposes your entire infrastructure to compromise.
Our penetration testing methodology is efficient and repeatable, founded on the Penetration Testing Execution Standard and Open Source Secure Testing Methodology Manual. We provide our customers with the maximum value by appropriately scoping the project and making certain we meet your expectations.
