At CynergisTek, we approach penetration testing with an emphasis on real-world attack scenarios. These actions are performed by world-class security engineers (ethical hackers) using a variety of tools and comprehensive manual analysis to uncover vulnerabilities where critical systems may be exploited or sensitive information may be disclosed. Vulnerabilities that are discovered are categorized and prioritized by risk, then manually validated to eliminate false positives. With this powerful information, our engineers work closely with security teams to provide recommendations that align with business productivity and connectivity needs.
White Box Penetration Testing
CynergisTek is provided with significant information about the target environment such as the IP addresses, URL, operating system, services, etc. to test. Specific information about potential vulnerabilities or areas of increased concern may also be disclosed.
Gray Box Penetration Testing
CynergisTek is provided with limited information about the target environment such as that provided during a White Box disclosure level. This level is also very collaborative in nature and often evolves into more targeted testing around specific focus areas after an initial phase of information and intelligence gathering.
Black Box Penetration Testing
CynergisTek is provided no information about the target environment. This type of penetration testing is initiated completely blind and requires the tester to first determine target assets and then identify potential vulnerabilities.
