Network Assessment Testing
Network Security Assessment identifies unauthorized access to sensitive data or even domain take-over systems for malicious/non-business purposes. The process of assessing an organization’s network infrastructure externally or internally is to identify vulnerabilities and security issues. After discovery, vulnerabilities are safely exploited, confirming if the vulnerability exists. The process is manual, removing false positives typically being validated by automated tools through vulnerability scanners. UniSec Inteli penetration testing methodology includes an attack simulation, carried out by highly trained security consultants in an effort to:
  • Identify the security flaws present in the environment.

Website Security Assesment
Websites attacked with malware that spreads stealthily to site visitors to steal customers confidential data like names, email addresses, financial information, credit cards and other transaction information result also in adding the website to a string of infected sites, sometimes even hijacking or crashing the site. It's well known that poorly written software creates security issues. The amount of bugs that could create web security issues is directly proportional to the size and complexity of web applications and web server. Websites themselves are complex and intentionally invite more severe interaction with the public. So, the opportunities for security breaches are unending.At UniSec Inteli, we combine following multiple assessment tools like automated scans and combined in-depth manual tests  to get the most comprehensive security assessment of the client Network systems.

API Security Assessment
Application Program Interface (API) is a significant part of Web Services, which is an implementation of Web Technology. Web services and API are used for communication between the application interface and server-side functionalities. Two types of API services includes REST API and SOAP API web services. Each of these types, either XML or JSON are used to procure data from the server based on API request calls, from the application. Since the usage of API services became more significant in modern web and mobile apps, it becomes a major attack vector and paves the gateway for various new variety of vulnerabilities and threats. API services security assessment will provide a significant amount of information about the vulnerabilities in the API to the developers, which are necessary to avoid data breaches.  APIs are driving the next generation of software architecture and creating a new digital business channel for customer engagement (such as Desktop Apps and Mobile Apps). The downside is that, they are also opening a variety of new attack vectors which are being exploited every day by malicious actors and applications. Our security testing services scrutinizes the security loopholes in your APIs at various levels and reports the same to you. Our experienced consultants are adept technologically and applies the following standards of practice:
  • Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)

Network Penetration Testing
A network penetration test provides your organization with a unique birds-eye view of your security system’s effectiveness. Newer companies may not yet have a handle on their network security. Conversely, more mature companies often have large, multi-faceted networks that easily overlooked elements—particularly as more organizations move to cloud-based systems. Both of these scenarios leave the potential for catastrophic breaches.

Manual vs Automated Network Testing

The trouble with using automated scanners is best described with the words of Mark Twain: “Knowledge without experience is just information.” Very often, these scanners miss subtle security risks — it takes an experienced individual to understand the application context and how logic could be abused. Many vulnerabilities simply are not found in  automated vulnerability scanners.UniSec Inteli expert security engineers often employ the help of vulnerability scanners in the preliminary stages of an assessment, though it is only the beginning.  With a more granular understanding of the application and its context, we can provide assessments that are more relevant to your clientele and individual security needs.

External Network Assessment

Your perimeter network is attacked every day and even small external vulnerabilities can be damaging. External network penetration testing identifies vulnerabilities on infrastructure devices and servers accessible from the internet. External penetration testing assesses the security posture of the routers, firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and other security appliances which filter malicious traffic from the internet.

Internal Network Assessment

UniSec Inteli’s security engineers approach the local area network as an attacker on the inside. We look for privileged company information and other sensitive asset s. This involves incorporating a variety of tools, uncovering user credentials, and attempting to compromise both virtual and physical machines present in the network environment. The benefit of this engagement is in ensuring a breach of your external network will not result in a breach of your assets.

Wireless Network Pentesting

Wireless (WiFi) networks may be susceptible to a myriad of attacks, depending on the wireless clients, access points, and wireless configurations. New exploitations against WiFi networks are being developed every day, which allows malicious actors to break the encryption protocol between most routers and connected devices. Poor configuration and weak protections could leave your internal information exposed to anyone in range with a laptop or smartphone. As such, UniSec Inteli tests the range of the network in addition to the range of potential vulnerabilities.
Website / Web application Penetration Testing
UniSec Inteli operates under a structured, repeatable methodology. We prioritize this concept in each engagement to make certain that our assessment is reliable, reproducible, and top-notch in quality. As such, our findings can always be verified by your team, before and after the remediation. To get these results, we are guided by the following steps:

1. Define Scope

Before a web application assessment can take place, UniSec Inteli defines a clear scope of the client. Open communication between UniSec Inteli and the client organization is encouraged at this stage to establish a comfortable foundation from which to assess.
  • Determine which of the organization’s applications or domains  are to be scanned/tested
  • Make exclusions from the assessment known (specific pages/subdomains)
  • Decide on the official testing period and confirm time zones

2. Information Gathering

UniSec Inteli engineers collect as much information as they can on the target, employing a myriad of OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) tools and techniques. The gathered data will help us to understand the operating conditions of the organization, which allows us to assess risk accurately as the engagement progresses. Targeted intelligence might include:
  • PDF, DOCX, XLSX, and other files leaked by Google
  • Previous breaches/credential leaks
  • Revealing forum posts by application developers
  • Exposed robots.txt file

3. Enumeration

At this stage, we incorporate automated scripts and tools, among other tactics in more advanced information gathering. UniSec Inteli engineers closely examine any possible attack vectors. The gathered information from this stage will be the basis for our exploitation in the next phase.
  • Enumerating directories/subdomains
  • Checking cloud services for possible misconfigurations
  • Correlating known vulnerabilities with the application and relevant services

4. Attack and Penetration

With careful consideration, we begin to attack vulnerabilities found within the webapp. This is done cautiously to protect the application and its data, while still verifying the existence of discovered attack vectors. At this stage, we may perform attacks such as:
  • SQL injection and/or Cross-Site Scripting
  • Employing breached credentials and brute force tools against authorization mechanisms
  • Monitoring web app functionality for insecure protocols and functions

5.  Reporting

Reporting is the final stage of the assessment process. UniSec Inteli analysts aggregate all obtained information and provide the client with a thorough, comprehensive detailing of our findings. The report begins with a high-level breakdown of the overall risk, highlighting both strengths and weaknesses in the application’s protective systems and logic. We also include strategic recommendations to aid business leaders in making informed decisions regarding the application. Further into the report, we break down each vulnerability in technical detail, including our testing process and remediation steps for the IT team, making for a simple remediation process. We go to great lengths to ensure each report is both explicit and easy to navigate.

6. Reassessment

Additionally, upon client request, UniSec Inteli may review an assessment after the client organization has patched vulnerabilities. We will ensure changes were implemented properly, and the risk has been eliminated. The previous assessment will be updated to reflect the more secure state of the application.
