The purpose of the test is to secure important data from unauthorised users. Once the vulnerability is identified it is used to exploit the system in order to gain access to sensitive information.
Penetration Testing is the practice of testing a computer system, network or web application to find vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit.
Simulating a full scale assault using internal and external attack vectors, our team of experts test the ability of your systems, applications or environment to withstand a cyber-threat.
In doing so, we help our clients improve security and remain compliant with regulatory compliance standards such as ISO 27001 and PCI DSS.
Network Penetration Testing
A Network Penetration allows an organisation to test it’s network against attack in a controlled environment carried out by a professional cyber security expert also known as an ‘ethical hacker’.
The test ensures that your organisation is genuinely secure against a range of constantly evolving cyber threats.
Penetration tests should be conducted bi-annually or when there have been changes to your system.
Web App Penetration Testing
A Web App Penetration test is designed to identify potential vulnerabilities in your websites and web applications, and provide recommendations for improving your security posture.
A web application security test simulates a real-world attack, identifying security issues within your organisations web applications, website and web services.
Our vulnerability scan helps detect vulnerabilities in your environment before attackers can exploit these weaknesses.
Constant changes to devices, configurations, and applications can leave you susceptible to an attack, even if you are keeping your security controls up to date.
Vulnerability scans should be conducted regularly, and no less than each quarter, to provide a baseline in which to test against in order to identify new vulnerabilities.
