Wireless communications are essential in our modern way of life, but they are one of the most common entry points that attackers use to gain access to your enterprise network. Wireless networks are challenging to control, monitor, and protect from penetration, which is why wireless network security experts are often hired to test these network types. Unless you plan to eliminate the WIFI networks in your organisation, assessing vulnerabilities via wireless network penetration testing it is a must. 

Wireless network penetration testing can help your organisation overcome three critical issues:

  • Attackers using wireless network as an entry point into your organisation;
  • Attackers manipulating communications to their advantage;
  • Threatening the privacy of other wireless users.

Our wireless network penetration tests are designed to employ the latest techniques to identify possible vulnerabilities and security misconfigurations in wireless encrypted networks, as well as, checking the level of access that can be obtained utilising these issues. 

Delivery Methods

Our security testing services can be provided via two delivery methods that can be mixed and matched to create an overall testing solution that fits your needs perfectly. For instance, you could require various penetration tests (delivered locally) or a vulnerability scan (conducted remotely) done on a project basis.

Project-based

Projects are fixed scope engagements of a predetermined time frame. Projects can be delivered locally at your office alongside your team or carried out remotely from our offices in Amsterdam or Kiev.

Contract-based

Contracting is a method of rolling engagement where a tester is contracted to join your organisation to deliver the required testing. Contract-based work can only be delivered locally, typically from within your team.

Process

Benefits

We use a methodology that consists of the following phases:

  1. Footprinting the wireless network in scope;
  2. Evaluation of the wireless security controls in place, and investigating if the control measures can be evaded;
  3. Analysis of the used wireless encryption schemes;
  4. Exploitation phase, where we investigate the possibility of obtaining access to the customer’s network using the vulnerabilities or security misconfigurations uncovered in the previous phases.
  • Confidence in knowing that any gaps in security are closed;
  • Increase awareness of effective security protocols;
  • Prevention of costly security breaches;
  • Knowledge of the size of your wireless network attack surface.
