Network Penetration Testing


The best way to know how intruders will approach your network and if your organization is susceptible to a breach is to test your security controls and defenses. Penetration tests simulate real-world attacks to determine if your valuable assets are properly secured.

Qumulus Solution’s Penetration Testing delivers point-in-time internal and external network penetration testing. The goal of these penetration tests is to identify security weaknesses and evaluate the security level of your organization’s key systems and infrastructure. Testing includes the same techniques utilized by real-life attackers attempting to gain access to sensitive information.


Qumulus Penetration Testing will identify security weaknesses in your environment by utilizing the methodology listed below:

Information Gathering

Qumulus will utilize multiple techniques to gather sensitive information, enumerate an organization's network identifying services, operating systems, and vulnerabilities, and deploy tools to passively and actively fingerprint an organization's infrastructure.

Threat Modeling

Qumulus will utilize the previous phase’s information to narrow vulnerabilities by identifying assets and placing them into threat categories. During this phase, Qumulus will use open source and commercial tools to confirm well-known vulnerabilities and identify services that need to be tested.

Vulnerability Analysis

Qumulus will use the previous phase narrowed focus to research vulnerabilities to discover flaws in systems and applications that may be exploitable and leveraged by an attacker. These flaws may include technical vulnerabilities, services of interest, system misconfiguration, or insecure design.  


This phase will be used to gain access to network infrastructure or devices. During this phase, Qumulus will attempt to gain access through known vulnerabilities, weak or default passwords, weak protocols, open services, and configuration errors.



Qumulus will develop an actionable detailed report that is complete with objectives, testing methods, executive summary, evidence of access, and recommended remediations




  • Identify and validate security weaknesses in computer networks and systems that an attacker could exploit.  
  • Reduce risks to improve your security strategy
  • Verifies technical vulnerabilities by exploiting them to gain system access.
