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.
Why Conduct a Wireless Pentest?
Conducting a wireless network penetration test provides invaluable insights into the security risks of your WiFi network and devices. Here is what you will get after conducting a project with our team:
Our tests will test the effectiveness of your existing security controls in preventing and detecting attacks and help validate the proper segmentation of your wireless network. By simulating an attacker, our experts will identify gaps in your defenses and provide remediation measures to improve your ability to prevent cyberattacks.
Our external penetration tests will identify and measure vulnerabilities that could be exploited to gain access to sensitive data or systems, compromise operations, or damage your reputation. By understanding exactly what could happen during an attack, organizations can prioritize their security efforts and allocate resources effectively.
Our wireless pentests will help you identify all existing vulnerabilities in your wireless infrastructure, including critical vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker to move laterally to your internal network or intercept sensitive user data. This will help you prioritize remediation efforts and reduce your overall risk exposure.
Our services will provide detailed information on how an attacker can breach your wireless network, what data or systems they could target and how to protect them. With this information, our team will provide you with tailored recommendations to improve your security posture and protect against potential threats.
Many regulatory frameworks require wireless penetration testing as part of their compliance requirements. Our tests will help ensure that your organization meets these requirements efficiently and avoids potential penalties for non-compliance.
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 Cybersecurity Risks & Vulnerabilities Identified
There are many common wireless network vulnerabilities that can leave your data and devices unprotected, as WiFi networks are generally less secure than traditional wired networks. The following vulnerabilities are the most commonly found within wireless networks:
A vulnerability that allows an attacker to setup an unauthorized wireless access point to intercept and capture sensitive information.
Vulnerable encryption can allow attackers to intercept and capture sensitive information that is transmitted by users over a wireless network.
A vulnerability that allows attackers to bypass security controls and gain access to a network to launch further attacks.
Attackers can exploit weak passwords to gain access to sensitive information or launch further attacks on the network.
Misconfigured routers provide an entry point for hackers to gain access to sensitive information or launch further attacks on the network.
Unsecured guest networks provide attackers with a pathway to gain unauthorized access to infiltrate a wireless network.

The Main Benefits of Testing The Security of 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, require a yearly wireless penetration test to remain compliant.
No matter what type of wireless network is used by your organization, it’s important to perform a regular assessment to stay protected.
