Penetration testing


There are no two identical organizations, which is why we are tailoring services to meet your organization’s unique needs. When it comes to penetration testing, we are vendor agnostic, which means that our testing is always impartial and free of any conflicts of interest.

The process usually identifies the target systems and the specific goal, then reviews the available information and takes different ways to achieve that goal.

Although the main objective of pen testing is to identify exploitable issues so that effective security controls can be implemented, security professionals can also use penetration testing techniques, along with specialized testing tools, to test the robustness of an organization’s security policies, its regulatory compliance, its employees’ security awareness, and the organization’s ability to identify and respond to security issues and incidents such as unauthorized access, as they occur.

Pen-test reports point to potential risks to the organization and suggest countermeasures to reduce risk.

Engagement process

From the start of an engagement, BEOtech will assign a project point of contact who will guide you throughout the entire process. Your project manager will serve as both the project manager and your technical resource for the engagement.
An engagement typically consists of scope confirmation, a kickoff meeting, status updates during the test as the engagement milestones are finished, knowledge transfer, report delivery, an optional re-testing period, and a final briefing. We encourage client staff to observe and monitor the testing process to learn from our experience, approach, and methodology.

Reducing Downtime during the pentest conduction
By leveraging a variety of methods, we are making every effort to reduce downtime and impact on production environments. BEOtech will tailor its tests where possible while informing you of any reduction in testing effectiveness or increased risk exposure.

Communication frequency
Status updates are provided to the customer representative every week, at a minimum. Depending on the nature of the test, if any high-risk issues are discovered, BEOtech personnel will notify client staff immediately. To assist in remediation activities will share detailed exploit “walk-throughs” which demonstrate all steps required to replicate the exploit.

Quality and Accuracy
Upon pentest completion and before report delivery, all deliverables are going through an internal peer review process to ensure all testing is detailed, consistent, and accurate. Relying on our ISO 20000-1:2011, 22301:2019, and 27001:2013 accredited quality system, our testing is accurate and repeatable, well-guided, and well-documented.

Testing Methodology

BEOtech pentest conduction utilizes our internally developed methodology. The methodology is based on industry-regarded best practices and standards to ensure each engagement is performed in an efficient, consistent, and thorough manner. Specifically, we use a methodology that provides a simple and repeatable process that incorporates NIST SP800-115, and OWASP principles.

Phase I – Survey

BEOtech pen testers will review the customer environment’s architecture and determine an optimal plan of pentest assessment. Based on the engagement goals, BEOtech could perform open-source intelligence and information gathering. BEOtech will use a combination of manual techniques and automated mapping and assessing customers’ environments in the most efficient manner. From the elementary environment foot-printing, vulnerability testing, and cross-referencing scan data from all sources, the Survey phase provides accurate results that eliminate false positives and prevent false negatives.

Phase II – Analyze

BEOtech pen testers evaluate each and every vulnerability discovered during the Survey phase to identify potential attack vectors. Each vulnerability is analyzed according to the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) to determine the corresponding severity scores as they relate to your organization. The attack vectors are analyzed, and a risk rating is assigned by calculating the exploitability of the vulnerabilities, attack probability, and impact on your organization.

BEOtech pen testers also perform a root cause analysis to determine how the vulnerability was introduced in the environment. After conducting an in-depth analysis BEOtech will provide a prioritized Vulnerability Remediation report.

Phase III – Validate

In coordination with the customer’s representative, BEOtech pen testers conduct penetration testing on an in-advance prepared scenario for the attack vectors evaluated during the Analyze phase. Penetration testing helps your organization to confirm the impact on the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of attacks against the networks, services, applications, and most importantly, the information that is stored on your infrastructure. BEOtech pen testers update the vulnerability severity scores and attack vector risk ratings according to the penetration test results after the Validate phase.

Value-added service – Education

Starting from knowledge transfer, status update meetings, and engagement meetings, BEOtech utilizes every opportunity to educate customers on our pen test process and findings. These practices provide your organization confidence on how to improve information security posture effectively and efficiently against the ever-growing and ever-changing threats.
