Vumetric, Your Trusted
Penetration Testing Provider

Penetration testing has become one of the most critical step in a cybersecurity risk managment strategy and is now conducted by the wide majority of organizations, but given the technical nature of the subject, it comes with many misconceptions or misunderstandings.

Leverage our 15 years of experience in conducting pentesting to determine what type of cybersecurity assessment your organization needs, ensure it is aligned with your business objectives and get tips to pick a provider.


What's a Penetration Test?

Penetration testing is a security assessment that simulating real-world attacks used by hackers to identify vulnerabilities in a business’s IT systems, networks, applications, medical devices, etc. It’s crucial for enhancing security by exposing weaknesses before attackers can exploit them. This proactive measure helps businesses strengthen their defenses, safeguard sensitive data, comply with regulatory requirements, and improve their resilience against the latest security threats their organizations is most vulnerable to. 

Given the growing complexity of cyber risks, pentesting has become a critical tool for IT leaders and company stakeholders to determine where they are most at risk of being breached so they can prioritize and allocate their improvement efforts as efficiently as possible.


Outsourcing Pentesting to a Provider vs. Conducting In-House

Choosing between contracting a specialized penetration testing provider and conducting in-house assessments is a pivotal decision for organizations aiming to enhance their cybersecurity posture.

While it’s entirely possible for IT departments to conduct pentesting internally, this skillset is not common and rarely possessed by IT professionals. Working with an external company simplifies the process for your IT team, providing an independent audit of security practices to help hold teams accountable. The practical recommendations help focus resources on implementing fixes that significantly improve resilience against prevalent hacking threats.


Providers have refined processes to deliver comprehensive, reliable results faster and at lower cost than internal teams.

The Limitations of Automated Testing

Automated testing solutions are a great starting point for any cybersecurity risk management strategy. They can quickly identify some of the low-hanging fruits that hackers may try to exploit. However, they have considerable limitations when compared to expert-driven penetration testing and can leave organizations with a false sense of security:

Automated testing can only detect known vulnerabilities in a predefined set of systems and applications. In contrast, manual penetration testing can adapt to different environments and identify vulnerabilities in proprietary applications with unique configurations.

Automated tools do not understand the context of an organization’s environment or the potential impact of a vulnerability. Expert-driven penetration testing provides a better understanding of the risks, prioritizing them based on the organization’s specific needs.

Automated tools may struggle to keep up with the latest attack techniques used by cybercriminals, as they rely on predefined exploits. Manual pentesting leverages human ingenuity and creativity, as well as knowledge of the current threat landscape to identify & exploit vulnerabilities that automated tools consistently miss.

Automated tools can have difficulty exploiting complex vulnerabilities that require a multi-step process or chaining of different weaknesses. Expert-driven penetration testing can uncover these sophisticated attack paths that lead to significant breaches.

Automated tools often provide generic remediation advice that may not be applicable to a specific organization’s environment. Manual penetration testing offers tailored recommendations, considering the unique context of the risk in the organization.

Automated tools may generate false positives, flagging issues that are not actual vulnerabilities, or false negatives, missing real security risks. Expert-driven penetration testing validates findings to ensure you focus remediation efforts on the right priorities.

Real-Life Example of a Hacker's Attack Path

This penetration testing project conducted by our team revealed 6 CRITICAL risk vulnerabilities requiring immediate action by our client that would have been overlooked by an automated testing solution. The information retrieved via exploitation of several vulnerabilities and the creativity of an experienced tester uncovered an opportunity to access the entire AWS infrastructure and compromise client data.

FAQ About Penetration Testing

The process involves an initial pre-engagement phase to define scope and objectives, followed by reconnaissance, scanning, exploitation, and post-exploitation stages to identify vulnerabilities and assess potential impacts. Detailed reports are provided after testing to help you understand and address discovered issues.

Web application pen test should ideally be performed at least annually to ensure consistent security against evolving threats. Additionally, it’s recommended to conduct a pen test after any significant changes or updates to the application or its hosting infrastructure, as new features, integrations or modifications can introduce new unknown vulnerabilities.

The cost of a penetration test varies significantly according to a number of factors. The most determining factor is the size (such as the number of the IP addresses being targeted) and the complexity of the testing scope (the number of features in an application, for instance).

Our penetration tests are designed to minimize disruption to your organization’s normal operations and the overwhelming majority of our tests are unnoticeable to our clients. Our team will work with you prior to the project launch to determine any areas that may be susceptible to affect your productivity and will take the necessary steps to minimize any potential impact.

In most cases, no access or permissions are required for a penetration test. The goal is to replicate an authentic cyber threat attempting to circumvent your security measures therefore the test is conducted entirely without any inside knowledge or access. However, some types of tests may require access is required to achieve the desired outcome. For example, in order to accurately test an industrial system, remote access to the network may be needed. We will coordinate with your team during the project launch call, where we will confirm objectives, the testing target, as well as any access requirements to achieve project goals.

Our penetration tests helps several organizations of all types meet compliance requirements every year by identifying vulnerabilities that need remediation. Once remediation testing is completed, we provide an official attestation confirming that vulnerabilities have been remediated, helping organizations meet compliance requirements efficiently without requiring them to share confidential and sensitive information regarding their cybersecurity risks to a third-party.

The duration of the test varies depending on the size and complexity of the scope. A typical pentest project can range from a few days, up to 3 weeks.
