Quality Results, Performance, and Consultants
The primary goal of a network penetration test is to determine if an attacker can gain access to sensitive data or systems through the target network. This type of test involves evaluating the attack surface for potential vulnerabilities and, where applicable, leveraging those vulnerabilities to gain control of systems or access to data. Network Penetration Tests are commonly used for internal and regulatory compliance.
External Vs. Internal
Network Penetration Test Variations
A normal (vanilla) network penetration test may include external ranges, internal ranges, or both. External testing is performed as an attacker on the Internet, while the internal often performed from a compromised user perspective.
In addition to a vanilla network penetration test, below are several common variations that you may need to meet your objectives:
Rogue Device Presence
Red Team Exercise
Network Segmentation Test
For internal network penetration tests, we will deploy a Secure Ideas Attack Machine (SIAM) as the internal presence. The SIAM is either a physical device or virtual machine that uses a VPN connection back to Secure Ideas so that our testers can remotely access the target network.
|Small||Up to 100 live hosts or 3 class C networks||$12,000|
|Medium||Up to 500 live hosts or one class B network||$19,200|
|Large||Up to 5000 live hosts or more than 100 class B networks||$31,200|
|Enterprise||More than 5000 live hosts or more than 100 class B networks||$60,000|
For external network penetration tests our consultants will approach the external attack surface with ranges or hosts you provide. Alternatively, we can also incorporate an extended reconnaissance exercise to identify targets.
|Small||Up to 10 live hosts||$7,200|
|Medium||Up to 100 live hosts||$12,000|
|Large||Up to 500 live hosts||$19,200|
|Enterprise||More than 500 live hosts||call us|
|Extra Recon||1-3 days of additional reconnaisance||$2,400 - $7,200|
We will scope any network penetration testing engagement in terms of overall effort. To help you with planning, we have included typical price ranges for common test variations below. If you don't see what you need, just ask!
|Control Testing||Varies by number of controls/exercises||$4,800 - $9,600 ea|
