Overview

What is wireless penetration testing?

Wireless networks are vital for providing access to systems and data, but they also can also act as an entry point for cybercriminals.

Wireless penetration testing is the assessment of wireless local area networks (WLANs) and use of associated wireless protocols and technologies, including Bluetooth, ZigBee and Z-Wave, to identify and address vulnerabilities that could lead to unauthorised network access and data leakage.

Wireless network vulnerabilities

Wireless pen testing vulnerabilities identified

Rogue access points
Weak encryption
Default router setups
Wireless zero configurations
Guest WiFi weaknesses
Bruteforce weaknesses
Bluetooth exploits
WPA key vulnerabilities

Approach

Our approach to wireless pen testing

A Redscan wireless pen test follows a tried and tested methodology to identify, exploit and help address vulnerabilities. Here’s how we approach a wireless assessment:

01. Scoping
02. Reconnaissance
03. Vulnerability discovery and analysis
04. Exploitation
05. Reporting and debrief
01.

Scoping

Our wireless pen testing experts work with you to establish the type of testing required and devise an appropriate testing strategy.

02.

Reconnaissance

Our web application penetration testers use the latest intelligence gathering techniques and their knowledge of wireless network protocols to gather information about your organisation’s network.

03.

Vulnerability discovery and analysis

Our web application penetration testers apply their offensive security expertise and knowledge of the latest hacking tools to identify exploitable security vulnerabilities.

04.

Exploitation

Once vulnerabilities have been identified, our wireless pen test experts develop and execute a plan to exploit them, but in a safe way that avoids damage and disruption.

05.

Reporting and debrief

After the wireless pen test is complete, our testers document key findings and supply prioritised remediation guidance to help address any identified exposures.

About

About our pen testing services

Redscan’s CREST-accredited penetration testing services are designed to identify and safely exploit security vulnerabilities in infrastructure, systems and applications. As with wireless penetration testing, all our assessments are designed to pinpoint hidden security risks and provide the support and guidance needed to address them.

Expertise

Our security qualifications

Types of penetration test

Network infrastructure testing

Network infrastructure testing

Redscan rigorously investigates your network to identify and exploit a wide range of security vulnerabilities. This enables us to establish if assets such as data can be compromised, classify the risks posed to your overall cyber security, prioritise vulnerabilities to be addressed, and recommend actions to mitigate risks identified.

Wireless testing

Wireless testing

Unsecured wireless networks can enable attackers to enter your network and steal valuable data. Wireless penetration testing identifies vulnerabilities, quantifies the damage these could cause and determines how they should be remediated.

Application and API security review

Application and API security review

Vulnerabilities contained within software are commonly exploited by cybercriminals and are easily introduced by under-pressure programmers. Redscan’s ethical hackers conduct automated and manual penetration tests to assess backend application logic and software and API source code.

Remote working assessment

Remote working assessment

If your organisation is embracing mass remote working for the first time, it’s important to ensure that it is doing so securely. Ensure your networks, applications and devices are protected and fully secured with a custom remote working security assessment.

Web application security testing

Web application security testing

Web applications play a vital role in business success and are an attractive target for cybercriminals. Redscan’s ethical hacking services include website and web app penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities including SQL injection and cross-site scripting problems plus flaws in application logic and session management flows.

Social engineering

Social engineering

People continue to be one of the weakest links in an organisation’s cyber security. Redscan’s social engineering pen test service includes a range of email phishing engagements designed to assess the ability of your systems and personnel to detect and respond to a simulated attack exercise.

Mobile security testing

Mobile security testing

Mobile app usage is on the rise, with more and more companies enabling customers to conveniently access their services via tablets and smartphones. Redscan carries out in-depth mobile application assessments based on the latest development frameworks and security testing tools.

Firewall configuration review

Firewall configuration review

Firewall rule sets can quickly become outdated. Redscan’s penetration testers can detect unsafe configurations and recommend changes to optimise security and throughput.
