Penetration Testing Service

Penetration testing, also known as pen testing, is an ethical approach to assessing cyber security. Its objective is to discover and exploit vulnerabilities in computer systems, applications, and websites, while ensuring safety, in order to assist in resolving those weaknesses. By employing the same tools and techniques used by cyber adversaries, pen testing simulates real attack scenarios.

Engaging in a penetration test allows organisations to minimise security risks and gain confidence in the security of their IT infrastructure. By identifying and addressing vulnerabilities before they can be maliciously exploited, organisations can proactively mitigate potential weaknesses.


Types of Penetration Testing

Web Application Testing

Our web application testing service focuses on comprehensive security assessments to identify and mitigate vulnerabilities.

Cloud Penetration Testing

Our customised cloud security assessments aid organisations in addressing vulnerabilities that may jeopardize critical assets.

Network Infrastructure Testing

We conduct thorough network investigations, uncovering and exploiting diverse security vulnerabilities.

Mobile Security Testing

Utilising the latest development frameworks and security testing tools, we conduct comprehensive mobile application assessments.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Penetration testing, also known as pen testing, is a simulated cyber attack conducted by skilled security professionals to identify vulnerabilities in computer systems, networks, or applications. Its purpose is to assess the effectiveness of security controls and discover potential weaknesses that could be exploited by malicious hackers.

    Penetration testing is crucial for identifying security weaknesses before they can be maliciously exploited. By conducting thorough assessments, organisations can proactively address vulnerabilities, enhance their security posture, and reduce the risk of cyber attacks. It helps organisations validate the effectiveness of their security measures and protect sensitive data from unauthorised access.

    While vulnerability scanning is a valuable security practice that helps identify known vulnerabilities, it cannot replicate the full scope of a penetration test. Vulnerability scanning is automated and focuses on identifying common vulnerabilities based on pre-defined signatures. On the other hand, penetration testing involves manual testing techniques, active exploitation of vulnerabilities, and complex attack simulations, providing a deeper analysis of an organisation's security posture. By combining both approaches, organisations can achieve a more comprehensive understanding of their security vulnerabilities.

    The frequency of penetration testing depends on various factors, such as the organisation's industry, risk profile, and regulatory requirements. Generally, it is recommended to conduct penetration tests at least annually or whenever significant changes occur in the IT infrastructure, such as new systems, applications, or major updates. Additionally, organisations may choose to conduct more frequent tests, especially in high-risk environments or industries.
