Collaborative Real-World Attack Scenarios


Sword & Shield Enterprise Security’s penetration testing experts partner with you to simulate the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) of real-world attackers to discover your critical vulnerabilities and remediate them before they’re exploited.

Our Difference

As an established and highly respected provider of penetration testing, Sword & Shield is dedicated to delivering comprehensive services customized to your environment. This is what makes our penetration testing services unique:

Our Process

Not all pen testing companies are created equal. Many simply run a software scan of your network and call this penetration testing. Sword & Shield goes beyond the scan to apply critical thinking, creativity, and breadth of experience to identify flawed logic, misconfigurations, vulnerability chaining, and more to show impact to your business. Then, we employ a proven and defined methodology to assess your environment, taking the time to truly evaluate the data by using insight and considering context. Finally, we highly recommend a retest to ensure measures taken achieved the intended result.

Featured Additional Security Assessment Services

Sword & Shield provides a wide variety of security assessment related services for our clients. The following list provides an overview of some of the most common services we perform. For more details about these services or other services we perform, contact us today.

Database Security

Our engineers are experienced in auditing Oracle, Microsoft SQL, Notes, and several other database management system products. Among other things, Sword & Shield security engineers analyze authentication and authorization controls in the database system for least-privilege access controls and audit traceability. Emphasis is placed on matching the degree of security with the business and operational needs.

Firewall Audit

A Sword & Shield Firewall/Router Audit thoroughly evaluates the rule base for known security risks and policy violations. As a first line of defense against attacks, firewalls and routers must be implemented and maintained properly. Our Firewall/Router Audit provides a detailed analysis that reduces risks and increases perimeter security.

Mobile Application Assessment

Our Mobile Application Assessment, when combined with our Web Application Assessment, provides a comprehensive assessment of the security of the web application and the mobile devices used to interact with the application. The service analyzes the network transmissions and forensically analyzes the mobile device(s) used.


Phone Sweep

Sword & Shield performs a sweep of the telephone address space to detect unauthorized modems and authorized but insecure modems. We can perform a phone sweep as a stand-alone service, or as part of another service, such as an external network vulnerability/penetration test.

Security Architecture Review

The Architecture Review and Design process is coordinated through a client project manager and includes a set of structured interviews. These interviews and reviews focus on business areas supported by the network and the technology staff that supports the business units.

Virtual Infrastructure Assessment

This service provides the customer with the analysis necessary to protect all facets of a virtualized infrastructure. Included are areas related to access control, the application of least privilege, data protection, secure network configuration, disaster recovery planning and testing, and threat analysis. The goal of the assessment is to identify security gaps and develop remediation strategies.

VPN Audit

The VPN Audit service audits your VPN and your VPN policies and recommends techniques to optimize and enhance your VPN’s effectiveness. We identify potential security vulnerabilities and help you reduce your risks.

Website Security Consulting

Web application security encompasses measures taken throughout the application’s life cycle to prevent exceptions in the security policy of an application or the underlying system vulnerabilities through flaws in the design, development, deployment, upgrade, or maintenance of the application.

Wireless Security
