Internal network penetration testing is a cybersecurity assessment conducted within an organization’s internal network environment. The primary objective of this testing is to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in the network infrastructure, systems, and applications that could be leveraged by attackers to gain unauthorized access, escalate privileges, or compromise sensitive data.

AI Web Security helps you detect possible vulnerabilities in your company’s internal network and prevent unauthorized access to your business’s sensitive data.

What is Internal Network Penetration Testing?

Malicious actors often exploit internal network flaws like weak or default credentials, unpatched software, and misconfigured services to gain unauthorized access or compromise sensitive data within organizations. These vulnerabilities can include inadequate access controls, insecure wireless networks, and susceptibility to social engineering tactics.

During an internal network penetration test, we begin by conducting reconnaissance to gather information about the organization’s internal network architecture and services. We then enumerate active hosts, services, and applications, identifying potential vulnerabilities through automated scanning tools and manual analysis.

Once vulnerabilities are identified, the tester attempts to exploit them to gain unauthorized access or escalate privileges within the network. This may involve using exploit frameworks or manual exploitation techniques tailored to specific vulnerabilities. After gaining initial access, we may move laterally across the network, accessing additional systems and sensitive data.

All the findings that were discovered by the tester are documented in a detailed report, which includes identified vulnerabilities, exploitation techniques used, and recommendations for remediation to improve the organization’s overall security posture.

Benefits of Internal Network Pentesting

Internal network penetration testing provides organizations with numerous benefits. By simulating real-world attack scenarios, it helps identify vulnerabilities in network infrastructure, systems, and applications. Through this process, organizations can strengthen their security posture, reduce the risk of cyberattacks and data breaches, and meet compliance requirements set by regulatory frameworks and industry standards. Additionally, internal network penetration testing enhances incident response preparedness, validates the effectiveness of existing security controls, raises security awareness among employees and stakeholders, and builds confidence in the organization’s ability to protect sensitive data and critical assets from cyber threats. Overall, it plays a crucial role in proactively managing cybersecurity risks and protecting against evolving threats in today’s dynamic threat landscape.

What are the results of Internal Network Pentesting?

Internal network penetration testing can yield various outcomes that are crucial for enhancing an organization’s security posture. This testing can uncover vulnerabilities within the internal network infrastructure, systems, and applications. These vulnerabilities may include weak or default credentials, unpatched software, misconfigured services, and inadequate access controls. Additionally, internal network penetration testing may reveal weaknesses in network segmentation, allowing attackers to move laterally across the network. By identifying these vulnerabilities, organizations can take proactive measures to remediate them, strengthen their internal security controls, and mitigate the risk of unauthorized access, data breaches, and other security incidents. The findings from internal network penetration testing can show the direction for security improvements, enhance incident response capabilities, and raise awareness among employees about potential security risks.

Reports usually include the following information vital for the company’s future security:
1. Detailed descriptions of the finding with risk gradation;
2. Evidence detailing the location and parameters being affected;
3. Remedial action and recommendations.
