Continuously find, fix, and verify your exploitable attack surface

Endida is one of the few licensed resellers in the UK, of the NodeZero Platform from Horizon3. Implementing NodeZero gives a continuous find, fix, and verify loop that empowers your organisation to reduce your security risk, by autonomously finding exploitable weaknesses in your network. It will then produce detailed reports and guidance about how to prioritise and fix all of the exploitable weakness – think of it as your own 24/7 Penetration Tester

Attack Path JMX RAT SMB.pngIn this autonomous pentest attack path, NodeZero exploited two weaknesses — a Java JMX misconfiguration and SAM credential dumping — to achieve domain compromise.


How The Platform Works

Run an Enumeration test in the platform to discover your internal attack surface

Deploy the fully encrypted Docker container in your network, no need to 100’s of agents

Start exploitation of weaknesses and vulnerabilities & gain access to the devices on the network

Maintain access to the system or network for as long as possible to ensure all attacks are covered

Provide a detailed report outlining the vulnerabilities that were exploited and how to remediate them

Nodezero Penetration Testing Platform

The NodeZero Penetration Testing as a Service (PtaaS) platform enables your in house team to perform the most effective real world attacks on your entire IT infrastructure. NodeZero not only uncovers weaknesses, misconfigurations, leaked or compromised credentials, but also checks the effectiveness of your existing cybersecurity protection mechanisms – both hardware and software.

The full post-test report gives IT teams, CIOs, CISOs and SoC teams a detailed analysis of attack paths with evidence of exploitation and prioritised corrective actions.

How does NodeZero Compare to a Vulnerability Scanner?

NodeZero, compared to traditional vulnerability scanners, provides a more comprehensive security assessment by simulating real-world attack scenarios. This approach not only identifies vulnerabilities but also evaluates the potential impact and exploitability of those vulnerabilities in a real-world context, offering a more actionable insight for remediation. This method can be more effective in identifying complex security issues that might be overlooked by conventional scanners.

Not all vulnerabilities identified by scanners are exploitable in real-world scenarios. Vulnerability scanners often provide a list of potential security weaknesses based on known vulnerability databases and patterns. However, the context, configuration, and specific environment in which these vulnerabilities exist can greatly affect their exploitability. Some identified vulnerabilities may be theoretical, mitigated by other controls, or not applicable due to specific system configurations, making them non-exploitable in practice.

Benefits of the NodeZero Penetration Testing Platform


Autonomously test and help you fix problems that matter, saving you time and money


NodeZero is up and running in hours, not weeks, our fully certified Horizon3 team we do all the work for you to ensure you are testing within a few days


No need to wait weeks or months for consultants to manually run pentests and produce reports - NodeZero will enable any IT or SoC team to testing within a few hours of implementation


NodeZero will cover your entire internal and external network - it even works with IoT Devices and Cloud storage too.


NodeZero automatically creats actionable, curated reports to enable your team to quickly find exploitable problems, fix them and then verify that the problems no longer exist


The platform is exclusively yours to use, not multi-tenant or sharing

Does it really work?

NodeZero uses the latest autonomous technology to drive the penetration test platform. The platform is so thorough it often finds multiple issues with weaknesses and credentials – a manual pentester will usually stop when they find a single issue with a particular device or service. NodeZero will find all of the assets you want to pen test and all that is needed internally is a simple docker container

What is penetration testing?

Penetration testing is a process of testing computer systems, networks, and applications to identify vulnerabilities that attackers could exploit. It involves simulating real-world attacks to determine the effectiveness of an organisation’s security defences.

What are the benefits of penetration testing?

Penetration testing can help organisations identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in their security defences before attackers can exploit them. It can also help organisations meet compliance requirements and improve their overall security posture.

What are the types of penetration testing?

The types of pen testing  include network testing, web application testing, mobile application testing, social engineering testing, and wireless network testing

What is the difference between autonomous, automated and manual penetration testing?

Endida’s autonomous penetration testing uses tools and AI to scan systems for vulnerabilities and exploits without the need for time consuming human intervention.

Automated testing simply automates certain tasks, it does not “think” like AI does.

Manual pen testing involves actual human testers who use their knowledge to identify vulnerabilities, however this is limited to their own training & knowledge. They may miss something if they do not know it is an issue.

How often should an organisation conduct penetration testing?

The frequency of pentesting  should be determined by factors such as the organisation’s risk profile, the sensitivity of its data, and the nature of its operations. Generally, organisations should conduct pen testing at least once every 6 months and after any significant changes to their systems or networks.

What are some common challenges with penetratioin testing?

Some common challenges with penetration testing  include false positives, lack of resources or expertise, and resistance from stakeholders who may view the testing as a disruption to their operations.

With Endida’s service, all of these issues are eliminated.

What is the difference between penetration testing and vulnerability scanning?

Penetration testing  involves simulating real-world attacks to identify vulnerabilities and assess the effectiveness of an organisation’s security defences. Vulnerability scanning is an automated process that identifies known vulnerabilities in systems and networks but does not test the effectiveness of security controls.

What should an organisation do after a pentest?

After a penetration test, the experts here at Endida will present you with a full, in-depth report along with recommendations as well as the professional services needed to fix them.  We then prioritise and address the vulnerabilities identified, develop a remediation plan, and conduct regular follow-up testing to ensure that the vulnerabilities have been addressed.
