PENTEST SERVICES OVERVIEW

What's a Penetration Test?

Penetration Testing, commonly referred to as ‘pen testing’ or ethical hacking, is a crucial cybersecurity analysis that proactively identifies and helps to fix vulnerabilities in an organization’s computer systems, networks, applications or smart devices. The assessment involves simulating controlled hacking techniques, mirroring strategies employed by real-world attackers to test the resilience of the target and its defenses against security breaches.

It helps organizations understand precisely what could be achieved if they were targeted by a real cyberattack and how to prevent potential impacts. It’s instrumental in helping organizations enhance their security posture. Through penetration testing, businesses gain a realistic assessment of their preparedness against cyber threats and ensure compliance with various regulatory standards, helping stakeholders prioritize their most critical risks and make informed decisions to safeguard their digital assets.

In a landscape where cyber threats are constantly evolving, conducting regular penetration testing is essential to ensure that security measures are both robust and adapted to the latest adversary tactics. Various standards, such as PCI-DSS or ISO27001 mandate yearly testing to maintain compliance and avoid costly fines in the event of an incident.

PREVENTING MODERN CYBERATTACKS

Why Should you Perform Penetration Testing?

  • Evolving security landscape
    Adapting to rapidly evolving security threats and hacking techniques employed against critical IT systems and applications.
  • Rising complexity of modern security risks 
    Discovering and addressing often critical security risks that automated tools are unable to identify due to their unique nature.
  • Increasing cybersecurity requirements
    Compliance standards are increasing across all industries and now include recurring penetration testing as a requirement.
  • Limitations in traditional security solutions
    Conventional security tools, like firewalls and antivirus software are generally ineffective, lacking comprehensive coverage against a broader range of vulnerabilities.
IDENTIFY, PRIORITIZE & FIX YOUR RISKS

How Will Penetration Testing Help Improve My Cybersecurity?

  • Gain In-Depth Insight Into Current Risks
    Conduct an in-depth external penetration test that transcends basic automated scanning tools to offer a comprehensive security assessment of your external network.
  • Simulate Real-World External Threats
    Replicate hacking techniques and exploits, such as unauthorized access and software exploitation, to pinpoint your most vulnerable assets.
  • Benchmark Against Industry Standards
    Measure your external security posture against globally recognized security frameworks to gauge how well you’re doing in the larger landscape.
  • Adopt the Latest Best Practices
    Deploy robust security mechanisms to fortify your target systems against a spectrum of threats, both conventional and emergent, thereby minimizing the attack surface.
ASSESSMENT FOCUS AREAS

What Can be Assessed by Penetration Testing?

A pentest can be used to identify & fix vulnerabilities across various kinds of digital technologies used by organizations today:

  • Network Infrastructure
    In-depth analysis of internal and external networks. Firewalls, IDS/IPS systems, VPN configurations, network device settings, etc.

Penetration Testing FAQ

Couldn’t find the information you were looking for? Ask an expert directly.

What is the purpose of conducting a penetration test?

Conducting a penetration test is a critical tool used by companies as part of their cybersecurity risk management strategy. It helps organizations identify and fix the vulnerabilities most likely to be exploited to breach their cybersecurity and offers counter-measures to mitigate the most important risks of facing cybersecurity incidents.

How is it conducted? What is the process?

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.

How much does it cost?

The cost of a penetration test can vary significantly depending on the scope of the assessment. For external penetration testing, one of the most significant factors in the price is the number of IP addresses that need to be evaluated. For an application penetration test, the complexity of the app and the number of user roles will directly impact pricing.

Can your penetration tests cause downtimes?

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.

Do we need to provide any access or permissions for the test to be conducted?

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.

How does penetration testing fit into our overall cybersecurity strategy?

Penetration testing is an essential component of any comprehensive cybersecurity strategy. By identifying vulnerabilities and weaknesses in your mission-critical networks and applications, you can take proactive steps to protect your organization from the most likely risks of facing potential a damaging breach. Regular testing can help ensure that your security measures are up-to-date and effective, and can provide valuable insights into areas that may require additional attention or investment.

Will this test allow us to meet compliance requirements?

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.

How long does it take?

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.
