What you’ll be doing...

As a Penetration Tester, you will work with F500 customers to take the traditional vulnerability assessment and build upon it, acting as an “ethical hacker” to evaluate the security of enterprise networks, applications, mobile devices, and data. You will go beyond simply enumerating vulnerabilities and assess them to understand the potential impact they pose our client’s business. This real-world discovery approach allows us to work with our client to systematically back-track and lock down information, whether by removing a weakness, or adding protective controls.

As a Penetration Tester, you will actively exploit vulnerabilities and then then use what is found to help develop solutions that can secure the enterprise. Our assessment process includes four components:

  1. Discovery: Working with the customer to take stock of system elements, including networks, applications, and mobile assets. Gathering key information including registration data, operating system, patch, and service version information, and system and application configurations.
  2. Vulnerability Identification: Based on what is learned during the discovery phase, you will then take steps to challenge them. Using a variety of applicable tools, including in-house and commercially available programs, you will create a real-world scenario where you attempt to compromise system, application, and mobile security, gain unauthorized access to resources, or disrupt and exploit system services.
  3. Exploitation: You will exploit vulnerabilities detected during the identification stage to determine the level of impact to the enterprise had someone with malicious intent attempted the same action.
  4. Post Exploitation: If access to any vulnerable hosts are achieved, you will attempt to escalate privileges on these exploited systems and leverage this access to gain additional access into the network you are testing. During this stage multiple different cutting-edge techniques will be used to identify multiple potential ways to compromise a customer’s network and then provide recommendations for remediation.

  • Providing consulting services in the discipline of vulnerability assessments and penetration testing.
