SudoSecure performs full security assessments and penetration testing for both VoIP (Voice over IP) and traditional PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) infrastructures and technologies.
SudoSecure evaluates the different components of your VoIP and Telecom infrastructure from a security perspective and their capability to maintain confidentiality, integrity and availability. Our testing generally includes investigating the authentication mechanisms, as well as the potential interception, interruption or manipulation of the exchanged information and conversations within your telecommunication systems.
VoIP Penetration Testing
Enterprise VoIP networks continue to grow in popularity as the convergence of voice and data into a single network promises to reduce costs, improve quality and simplify management. Although VoIP technology corresponds to current business needs, it can introduce many additional risks such as call tracking, call data manipulation, listening or unauthorized wiretapping.
The addition of voice on the network poses new challenges to the enterprise and new potential security risks arise.
During a VoIP penetration test, SudoSecure security experts will attempt to access privileged information or systems by exploiting weaknesses in your VoIP network.
SudoSecure’s VoIP testing process is intended to go much further than the generic responses provided by automated tools.
These tests include but are not limited to:
- Exploiting and Gaining Remote Management
- Eavesdropping and Recording Conversations
- Hijacking and Injection Attacks
- Call Forwarding and Caller ID Spoofing
- Physical Access Attacks
- Denial of Service Attacks (Optional)
Traditional PSTN Penetration Testing
While traditional telecom exposures were the original hackers’ entry points, in recent years enterprises have tended to focus on securing their IP based assets and largely ignoring vulnerabilities within their traditional telephone systems. These telephone-based vulnerabilities represent to a hacker an easy and unmonitored attack pathway into your enterprise network environments.
A successful attack against your traditional telephone systems and infrastructure can provide an attacker with the following capabilities:
- Make toll calls at your organizations expense
- Sell the use of your organizations call systems to others
- Listen to your organizations voice mails
- Maliciously reprogram your organizations telephone systems
- Disable your organizations telephone systems
SudoSecure will pinpoint vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in your traditional telephone systems by performing comprehensive testing and analysis of your telephone system and voicemail. SudoSecure security experts utilize similar tools and techniques that a malicious hacker would utilize. If SudoSecure security experts can get in so can your competitors, a disgruntled employee or a malicious hacker.
