Infrastructure pentesting, also known as network pentesting or a security assessment, is the process of gaining intelligence of an organization’s infrastructure in order to find holes in their security. This can include anything from finding publicly exposed systems to tracking and monitoring data leaks.

The goal of an infrastructure pentest is not simply to find vulnerabilities, but also to help the company understand how a real attacker would think and act. This information can then be used to improve the company’s security defenses so that they are better prepared for a real attack.
During an infrastructure pentest, out consultants will try to gain access to the company’s systems and data in the same way that a real attacker would. This includes methods such as social engineering, brute force attacks, and network exploitation using known & less known attack vectors. Once our team has gained access to the system, they will then try to escalate their privileges in order to gain more control over the system based on the target scope.
