Network security (NetSec) can get overshadowed by a restrictive focus on the vulnerabilities of specific systems and applications. However, it is the network infrastructure itself than connects these, thus playing as crucial a role in any attacker’s strategy and their journey through the kill chain. In nearly all cases, they must first compromise and join the network, move laterally, then position themselves to target an asset. In this sense, network security is foundational to your posture—externally and internally, your infrastructure is everything.
Because of this, our network security methodology follows the technical and process aspects of each step that an attacker would take from the start to the end of the kill chain. Our approach is designed to deliver maximum return on investment by focusing on how specific business outcomes can lead to an uplift in your organization’s cyber resilience. Beyond vulnerability scanning, we aim to perform realistic, bespoke assessments that reveal the attack vectors automated tools often miss. And to help us model specific threat scenarios and the types of adversary looking at your organization right now, we also collaborate with other areas of the consultancy, such as our detection and adversarial simulation teams.
To reflect the true nature of your infrastructure, our capability covers a large scope, including Active Directory (AD), cloud infrastructure, database management systems, SAP and ERP implementations, and mainframe architecture, to name a few areas. Organizations that partner with us become able to identify significant exploitable vulnerabilities and security issues, before qualifying risks and proposing prioritized means of remediation.
Our offensively trained consultants specializing in NetSec work with methodologies aligned to NCSC's guidelines and based on OSSTMM, ISSAF, BIZEC TEC11, and NIST guidelines.
We can test with stability and safety in a production environment, live on the internet, or in an isolated test environment, avoiding any interference with the business.
Network security is a gateway that can lead to other, specific testing activities or even form the strategic foundations of your security program. And yet, it can also deliver business outcomes independently of further security work.
Understand and articulate real risk by addressing specific threat scenarios across your external and internal infrastructure.
Provide assurance around the effectiveness of security controls already applied to protect against Internet-based and internal attacks.
Inform decisions around your future partnerships and investments by assessing how existing third-party technology is affecting the security of your network.
Test and demonstrate the broader impact of application or mobile security investment as part of a defense-in-depth strategy.
Rather than only looking for unpatched systems, we build on the traditional vulnerability-centric foundations of network security to help clients go deeper into the context of how and where their infrastructure will be attacked.
