Penetration testing (PEN testing) is a vital method for allowing organizations to determine how exposed their networks are to real world threats by showing how well corporate security processes, procedures and technologies hold up against announced or unannounced attacks by veteran security specialists using advanced hacking techniques. Progent can provide a one-time pentest or run scheduled or continual pentests delivered as a remotely managed service.

Progent's security experts can perform extensive in-depth penetration testing without the knowledge of internal IT staff. Such testing, known as stealth pentesting, uncovers whether existing security monitoring tools such as intrusion detection alerts and event log monitoring are correctly set up and actively monitored.

Penetration testing can encompass any or all of the following areas:

  • Running a series of port scanning tools to identify open network access vectors and to characterize a customer's network environment and overall security level.
  • Running a series of exploit identification tools that test all open access vectors against a large database of known vulnerabilities resulting from servers that are not up to date on security patches, out of date firmware/software, poorly configured servers and devices, and default or common installation passwords.
  • Evaluation of wireless network security by attempting on-site access from publicly accessible locations including parking lots, hallways, bathrooms, and physically adjacent spaces or floors. Identification of security methods utilized by wireless infrastructure and running known exploit tools to gain access.
  • Attempting to determine remote access capabilities of the network and perform exploit and brute force attack methods to gain access through remote access infrastructure.
  • Performing remote office security evaluation and testing, and determine whether remote sites can be used as a vector into the corporate network through VPNs or other private network infrastructure.
  • Performing brute force account and password attacks using a database of over 40 million possible passwords.
  • For devices and servers that are successfully penetrated, Progent security experts will manually use assorted hacker techniques to extend such exploit vectors to gain an understanding of the full network environment and see how many internal systems can be accessed and compromised. This type of security testing can expose the full scope of the vulnerability of a network environment.
  • Determining internal and external network addressing configuration through email beaconing techniques.
  • Performing various Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, coordinated with internal senior management to determine whether it is possible to stop or reduce network throughput. Once proof of impact is reported, such testing can be immediately terminated to avoid impacting business productivity.
  • Performing PBX remote access and voice mail security testing.
  • Continuous autonomous PEN testing to map your internal/external attack surface and to identify ways that vulnerabilities, improper configurations, stolen credentials, missing patches, and unsound product defaults can be chained together by threat actors into the multi-vector attacks common to modern strains of ransomware. The NodeZero product from is an example of a next-generation penetration testing platform powered by AI technology that can be run continuously to assess, tune, repair, and confirm the security posture of networks of any size in order to provide a high level of protection against modern cyberthreats like ransomware.
Progent experts can use social engineering techniques and public information to attempt customized password penetration testing utilizing information such as employees' family member names, birthdates, home addresses, and phone numbers. Progent team members can often quickly uncover this information through Internet online search and public records. Progent can uncover employee names/email addresses through publicly accessible information on the Internet, from PBX voice mail directories, public records filings, marketing materials and press releases, web sites, and receptionist.

Progent will provide a complete report of methods used and vulnerabilities uncovered during stealth penetration testing, along with a detailed list of recommended remediation steps. Progent can then work with internal IT staff to perform an audit and evaluation of the actual security protection, configuration, tools, and processes and help your company develop a comprehensive security plan.
