Penetration Testing


Expert Security Penetration Testing

Hycom’s Penetration Testing Services help you identify, understand and resolve configuration and security vulnerabilities before they are exploited by real-life attacks. Our expert team of Information Security consultants combine years of knowledge and experience with sophisticated technology tools to identify potential risks to your information system environment both externally and internally.

External Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing Services

Vulnerabilities at the network perimeter expose an organization to a variety of external threats, ultimately increasing its overall risk exposure. Through a series of scans run outside of the network perimeter, Hycom’s external vulnerability assessment & penetration testing examines configurations of the firewall and other devices in place to prevent intrusions into an organization’s network. 
Once the data has been collected and analyzed, Hycom provides a set of recommendations indicating the best methods for improving the security of the network perimeter. Along with these recommendations, Hycom also analyzes firewall rules and configurations to further determine a company’s overall risk exposure and the appropriateness of existing security settings, and it can provide a report assessing risks surrounding remote access connections into the network.
External Penetration Testing Services can include: Port scanning, Ping testing, Who is search, Traceroute analysis, Manual network cracking tools.

Internal Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing Services

With so much attention focused on protecting the network from hackers, viruses, and other external threats, a network’s internal vulnerabilities are often overlooked. Hycom’s Internal Vulnerability Assessment services are designed to identify weaknesses within the local area network (LAN) by analyzing security-related configurations, services running, and other potential weaknesses through a series of scans run from inside of the network perimeter.
Once data has been collected and analyzed, Hycom compiles a set of recommendations to address discovered vulnerabilities and ensure compliance with industry best practices and related regulatory guidelines.

Social Engineering Testing

In many instances, the most significant threat surrounding an organization’s confidential information stems from the people chosen to both use and protect it. Hycom’s Social Engineering Testing Services are designed to simulate actual attacks by executing the same methodologies used by attackers.
In effect, test participants gain exposure and a better understanding of social engineering tactics without the harmful repercussions and damaging results of real-life attacks. After attempting a social engineering attack, Hycom documents the observed results and provides a report for the client, providing recommendations and training plans.
Among the most common social engineering services demonstrated by Hycom are: Phishing Services, Spear Phishing, Vishing, Impersonation, Pretext Calling and Pretext Mailer.

Whether your cloud hosted environment is public (AWS, AZURE, GCP), private or hybrid, our team will evaluate the security of your organization’s overall cloud infrastructure’s attack surface. Once we gather and review our preliminary threat assessments, our team performs manual exploits and/or proof-of-concept testing. Once testing is complete, we compile and deliver results in a report and discuss next steps in terms of remedial



Red Team, Blue Team, Purple Team Exercises
