According to PhishMe 2016 Q3 Malware Review, The amount of phishing emails containing a form of ransomware grew to 97.25% during Q3 2016, up from 92% in Q1 2016.
Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section (CCIPS) says more than 4,000 ransomware attacks have occurred every day since the beginning of 2016.
Cybersecurity Ventures estimate global annual cybercrime costs will grow from $3 trillion in 2015 to $6 trillion annually by 2021.
To cut these costs and protect systems from ransomwares, companies consult professional Penetration Testing services. These services offer thorough vulnerability assessments and gives solutions for the security breaches. Penetration testing services are outsourced to reliable service providers to save time, money and deliver complete security to systems.
In this blog we are going to discuss penetration testing methodologies followed by all top notch penetration testing services:
1. Blackbox testing –
Black box testing is the process of replicating a skilled attack, using the latest techniques and tools intended to detect security vulnerabilities and exploit them. It usually takes the approach of uninformed attacker.Pentest experts will duplicate a real attack on the application.
Software-level vulnerabilities defined by OWASP & WASC are covered by penetration testing services.The testing process detects vulnerabilities, potential exploitation damage and severity.These services deliver a detailed report that includes recommendations that will assist you in securing your systems and protecting your enterprise’s assets and integrity.
2. Whitebox testing –
In whitebox testing, the tester is given full disclosure about the network prior to the penetration testing. Whitebox testing is also called as ‘Full disclosure testing’.it is related to internal penetration testing.
A complete cooperation of the internal security teams with the audit team is required to carry out whitebox penetration testing. It indicates threats from inside the network that was using knowledge of company’s network, such as IP addresses, router access, active ports, web servers, and even passwords.
3. Graybox testing –
Graybox penetration testing technique is a mix and balance of Black Box and White Box testing. Here auditors are provided with limited knowledge of internal infrastructure. This approach amplifies a Black Box test to reveal vulnerabilities and identify weaknesses.
Auditor gets a dual perspective of an external attack as well as any internal security breach.Graybox testing requires less time as compared to blackbox testing. Grey Box Testing methodology is designed by keeping the client’s requirements in mind.
