Wireless Penetration Testing

How “open” are your connections?

In wireless environments, network devices (wireless access points and routers) enable any Wi-Fi-enabled computer or mobile devices within range of their signal to be connected to the Internet. Using unsecured or open Wi-Fi networks, though, can expose your users and your organization to significant cyber risk and attack.

Our Wireless Penetration Tests use a proven, step-by-step approach informed by ISO/IEC 27000 and NIST SP800-115 security standards. Need to determine and strengthen the cybersecurity defenses of your wireless environment? 

Count on Summit to deliver peace of mind.

The specialized expertise you need

Basic security measures for wireless networks are not enough. In these complex environments, you are protecting more than just your users – you’re protecting your organization. You need a guide who understands what’s at stake, and doesn’t rely on shrink-wrapped, one-size-fits-all security solutions. You need Summit.

Summit cybersecurity experts recognize the risks associated with wireless networks – and the latest, most effective methods of mitigating them. Our comprehensive evaluation of your existing environment also provides actionable recommendations to improve your wireless security. 

Reducing your risk

The use of modern technology is a tradeoff between convenience and risk. You can’t have one without the other. Wireless networks are no exception, but Summit helps you achieve a better balance. 

The best solution is one that’s tailored to your specific needs. 

Our assessment of your environment considers a variety of factors – the number of users and how and where they work (onsite, remote, hybrid), how many and the types of network devices and potential connections, your physical environment, and future plans. 

Summit experts then develop customized recommendations for optimizing and scaling the security of your wireless network environment.


Ways to protect your wireless network

Our experts consider the variety of current available standards, tools, and methods when preparing our recommendations that will inform your strategy and guide the improvements of your wireless security. These include: 

WPA2 and WPA3 – These Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) protocols provide strong encryption and security with easy configuration to keep your wireless network safe.

802.1x – Protects against rogue physical connections to the wireless network without manually turning switch ports on/off.

VPNs – Virtual private networks protect the connection between your remote users and your corporate systems – even those connecting via minimally secured home Wi-Fi or open public networks. 

Point solutions – There are several point solutions available that address Wi-Fi network security. 

Network devices – Active, passive, and preventive devices provide different ways to monitor and detect excess traffic on your network.
