Proactive Pen Tests for Your Network Environments

Silent Sector's customized network penetration tests are conducted by our own experienced and credentialed industry professionals, based in the U.S.  Our thorough Expertise-Driven Methodology identifies exploitable vulnerabilities to help you remediate issues before they are compromised, while meeting compliance requirements and demonstrating proactive security measures.

Silent Sector's network pen tests are designed to meet the unique needs of each client's organization, environment, industry, timeline, and budget.  Our team performs comprehensive network penetration tests for many types of organizations ranging from healthcare companies to banks and credit unions, manufacturing to technology service providers. 

Every network penetration test has its own considerations and nuances as cybersecurity constantly evolves.  Our team utilizes the highest levels of expertise with both enterprise grade and open source technologies, with a tailored combination of automated and manual testing methods to identify realistic attack vectors and support remediation efforts.

Silent Sector's network penetration test reports never have canned verbiage or automated outputs.  Instead, each report is developed to meet your unique requirements with both high-level executive documentation and detailed technical information.  We provide an attestation letter with only non-confidential information to prove the completion of testing to auditors, clients, and other interested 3rd parties.

We offer both Red Team and Purple Team approaches, based on the purpose of the evaluation.  Many clients prefer the Purple Team approach where we work with their in-house or 3rd party IT professionals, demonstrating the warning signs of actual attack scenarios and empower the team members within the organization.  This supports a true defense in depth strategy by helping your tech professionals support your security posture on an ongoing basis in their individual roles.

Our team follows up with a report review and consultation to support remediation efforts after the completion of each test and delivery of the reports.  We then perform a retest to confirm the success of remediation efforts.  Silent Sector's additional validation demonstrates a truly proactive approach to clients and stakeholders.

Our network penetration tests are highly customized and thorough, while being accessible to emerging and mid-market companies with restricted resources.  Clients have told us that our test pricing has been 20-40% below others they've had, while providing better reports and more comprehensive approach.

WHO BENEFITS FROM A NETWORK PEN TEST?

Our network penetration tests are tailored to mid-market and emerging companies seeking proactive security measures.  They are heavily utilized by healthcare, financial services, and technology services companies but are beneficial to all organizations reliant on their technology infrastructure.  Pen testing benefits your in-house and 3rd party IT and security teams by providing clarity of risk and guidance for vulnerability remediation.  Network penetration tests also provide a revenue generation benefit for B2B organizations seeking enterprise clients, when leveraged appropriately to demonstrate the strength of the security program. 

Silent Sector focuses heavily on support for companies in Arizona, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado but can provide the same quality testing services to companies nationwide.
