Network Penetration Testing
Internal & External Network Penetration Testing

Identify exploitable vulnerabilities and verify that your infrastructure is resilient
against the most advanced network level attacks

Why Network Penetration Testing ?

Given enough time and effort, sophisticated modern-day hackers will find existing weaknesses in your network. That is why we spend time and effort identifying vulnerabilities before hackers can exploit it.
Our network penetration testing uses ethical hacking and controlled exploits to identify weaknesses in your network, so you know your security posture.

Penetration tests go deeper. A traditional vulnerability scan is performed using an automated security scanner that detects patterns and signatures that match a pre-defined set of vulnerabilities. However, scans are not “context-aware,” and are incapable of understanding critical business functions or important security controls.

Don’t rely on Vulnerability Scans

The Network Penetration Testing Solution

Dependency on vulnerability scans may result in missing critical security flaws and insecure device configurations. Our manual network pen testing leverages the knowledge provided by vulnerability scanners and goes beyond it to analyze and make decisions on how to best protect your network..

The Network Penetration Testing Process

Paladion experts have developed an exhaustive network pentest checklist and process evolving from decades long experience in the industry.

Information Gathering

The Network Penetration Process begins with a comprehensive survey of your network including architecture mapping and a complete network scan.


The network pentest process continues with port scanning and war dialing that includes scanning open ports, closed ports, and filtered ports.


After scans are complete, OS fingerprinting is conducted evaluating OS type, patch level, and system type followed by protocol identification.

Vulnerability Scanning

Once fingerprinting is concluded, a vulnerability scan is completed using automated scanning with access to a vulnerability database, where any vulnerabilities or exploit can be verified.

Exploit Verification

Using manual verification and password cracking, available exploits are checked and retested if necessary to validate results before reports are produced.


On conclusion of a network penetration test, comprehensive reports are created to provide findings, suggest solutions, and make recommendations.

Paladion Security Testing Labs

Paladion’s Testing Labs has over 20 years of experience performing penetration tests for network layers such as firewalls, web servers, email servers, and FTP servers; application layers including all major development languages, all major web servers, all major operating systems, and all major browsers.

The Bottom Line

Go deeper than a vulnerability assessment. It isn’t enough to simply see what vulnerabilities might exist in your network, you must also understand what vulnerabilities will most likely get exploited, so you can prioritize.. The only way to uncover this information is to simulate a successful penetration with our penetration test services.

Paladion’s Internal & External Network Penetration Testing service replicates the attacks that a malicious actor would likely deploy against your organization, to simulate a true exploitation of your vulnerabilities, and subsequent penetration of your network. By identifying both the real-world—and not theoretical—vulnerabilities within your security posture, as well as a clear picture of which of your assets will be exposed, and to what degree, our penetration testing gives you a clear picture of where you must shore up your security weaknesses… and what will happen to your assets if you fail to do so.

Our service performs both Internal and External penetration testing.

External penetration testing is often considered a more “traditional” form of penetration testing that simulates an external attackers’ attempts to enter, expose, and exploit vulnerabilities within your network. The goals of an external penetration test mirrors the goals of an external malicious actor—namely, to gain access to the “crown jewels” placed within your internal network. External penetration tests follow many different attack patterns, and attempt to achieve many different objectives, but they all focus on mimicking an outside attacker attempting to gain internal access.

By contrast, and Internal penetration test mimics the actions and objectives of the growing wave of insider threats. Often, the objective of an Internal penetration test if similar—if not identical—to the objective of an External penetration test. However, the methods of attack and exploitation change. In an Internal penetration test, we begin our exploit with some degree of internal access and knowledge of your networks.

In today’s complex security environment, your vulnerabilities can be exploited by threats approaching from every conceivable direction. With Paladion’s Internal & External Network Penetration Testing service, you can proactively protect your network from your most critical vulnerabilities— no matter where your threats attack from.
