What is Wireless Penetration Testing?
Wireless Penetration Testing is an assessment that identifies vulnerabilities within wireless access points, such as WiFi networks and wireless devices using the same techniques as hackers to breach your infrastructure.
Our Wireless Testing is designed to fix any security flaw within WLANs and connected equipment that would allow attackers to gain unauthorized access and compromise sensitive information.
Wireless testing can help organizations identify and fix weaknesses in their wireless networks before attackers have a chance to exploit them.
Our Wireless Penetration Testing Services
Our wireless penetration tests allow you to determine the impact of an attack targeting your wireless network and provide actionable recommendations to fix any identified vulnerability.
Wireless penetration testing can help to mitigate these risks by identifying weaknesses and vulnerabilities in the system. By conducting regular pen tests, businesses can ensure that their wireless networks are secure and protected from potential threats.
Common Wireless Network Vulnerabilities
There are many common wireless network vulnerabilities that can leave your data and devices unprotected.
One of the most common is an insecure or unencrypted network. This means that anyone within range of the network can potentially access your data. Another common vulnerability is a lack of strong authentication measures. This can allow unauthorized users to gain access to your network and devices.
WiFi networks are generally less secure than traditional wired networks. A vulnerability may allow a hacker to capture sensitive information that transits or elevate privileges into a critical internal network. Although non-exhaustive, the following vulnerabilities are the most commonly found within wireless networks:
Why Test Your Wireless Network?
Wireless networks have become such an important vector of attack for hackers that various standards, such as PCI-DSS or SOC 2, now require a yearly wireless penetration test to remain compliant.
No matter what type of wireless network you have, it’s important to test it regularly.
