How to do a Penetration Test
Having a penetration testing firm conduct a vulnerability and security test is one of the most important services you can have done for your business. Our Medford pentesting professionals are able to identify vulnerabilities in a company. After finding a vulnerability, Kelley Connect will address the issues with you.
Curious how the best penetration testing companies work? Here’s an overview:
#1 – Identify a Weakness
The first step in identifying a vulnerability or weakness is to gather information about the target network. More often than not, this is done through sifting through public information that is freely available. And yes, you guessed it – social engineering is top of the list.
#2 – Craft an Attack
In order for a pentest to truly show you what vulnerabilities and weaknesses are out there, our pentesting services include in-depth research and a well thought out attack on the network.
#3 – Test the Attack
This is where our team is able to put their plan into action. With the attack designed specifically for the targeted network, a hacker (in this case, Kelley Connect) will now be able to exploit any vulnerabilities and conduct the attack.
#4 – Document the Weakness
Because hackers are notorious for coming back, successful attacks are documented and the path that exploited any weakness is going to be used again. A good hacker, and therefore the top penetration testing companies, will identify steps that will leave this door open for further attacks.
#5 – Conduct the Attack
While conducting the attack on the network, Kelley Connect will document any and all vulnerabilities and weaknesses that have been identified. Afterword, these can and will be addressed for future security.
#6 – The Clean Up
After successfully penetrating a network, a hacker will hide all evidence that he was there. He wants your information, but he doesn’t want you to know that he has it. But just because he got your information this time, it doesn’t mean that he wont’t be back again. We look for, and identify, any path back into the system that can be made.

Medford is the fourth largest metro area in Oregon and offers a wide variety of positives for those interested in the Rogue Valley.
Medford is the home Harry and David’s, which was founded in 1910. The now famous pear baskets that they offer are grown right here in Medford to this day.
MFR, also known as The Rogue Valley International Airport, is the third busiest airport in Oregon. The only two that are more busy are in Portland and Eugene. As it turns out, the CORE (now a part of the Kelley Connect family) headquarters is located at the airport in MFR.
In addition to the popular airport, Medford is the medical center for all surrounding areas. Over 2,000 residents of Medford are employed by Providence Medford Medical Center and Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. This is nice for the younger generations that live in Medford as well as the many retirees that have chosen southern Oregon as their home.
Aside from the man-made attractions, Medford offers some breath-taking views provided by nature. Just outside of the city limits are two volcanic plateaus named Upper and Lower Table Rock. In addition, you can see Roxy Ann Peak, a 30 million year old volcano. But don’t worry, the volcanoes are dormant.
And while technically man-made (or at least man-aided), there are several beautiful golf courses. Ranging from Stewart Meadows Golf Course and Quail Point Golf Course, to Stone Ridge and Eagle Point Golf Courses.
