Wireless security testing

Wireless security testing is an essential part of your network defences where wireless technology is used.  It will identify any vulnerabilities in your wireless deployment whether for business purposes or guest access and provide a report with pragmatic and secure remediations to prevent unauthorised access.

  • Identify technical security vulnerabilities and weaknesses with a wireless network deployment
  • Test the effectiveness of security controls associated with a wireless network and ensure adequate protection of organisational information assets
  • Effectively manage wireless service information security risks

The deployment of a wireless network within an organisation can introduce additional risk that needs to be properly managed.

For example, a guest wireless network that is physically separate from a corporate network could be used to masquerade attacks against other Internet hosts, allow attacks against other wireless clients or to access unsavoury Internet content. Furthermore, a corporate wireless network could suffer from weak authentication or be lacking segregation, which could be used by an ex-employee with knowledge of the key to regain access to internal networks and to launch attacks against organisation assets.

Wireless security testing supports effective management of information security risk associated with organisational wireless and ensure a robust and functioning set of controls, including patch, configuration and vulnerability management of wireless access points, strong network architecture, robust authentication mechanisms and useful protective monitoring.

Whether associated with a sweep for unauthorised wireless deployments, an audit of a Guest or Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Wi-Fi implementation or a full assessment of an enterprise grade wireless network access deployment our wireless testing service shall determine whether effective controls are implemented and operating properly. Our team has the equipment and capability to assess the complete and up-to-date range of wireless bands and technologies.

Using a team that comprises experienced penetration testers and wireless security experts and following formal methodologies, Prism Infosec will assess a wireless network’s security controls for vulnerabilities and weaknesses across the stack and deliver a detailed report.

The output of the exercise shall position the effectiveness of security associated with the wireless network against best practice and provide a detailed set of issues alongside pragmatic remedial activities that can be used to make improvements to Wi-Fi information security.
