What is penetration testing?
A penetration test (or 'pentest') provides a comprehensive assessment of your systems, applications or environments to identify any technical vulnerabilities, weaknesses or exposures that are open to being targeted.
Why perform a penetration test?
You may run pentesting to meet compliance requirements, as part of internal risk management programmes or IT health checks, when new systems are launched, or in response to a threat escalation.
We tailor our testing to meet your business needs and security requirements – and always align our testing to the outcomes you need.
We identify the vulnerabilities, weaknesses and exposures most likely to impact your environments. After capturing security requirements and principal concerns, we explore relevant threats and attack paths in a way that highlights any risks that could be a cause for concern.
We provide clear reports with pragmatic remediation advice for every issue we identify. We also look beyond isolated vulnerabilities to explore the attack pathways an adversary might use – considering the different threat actors and their access accordingly.
Adapts to your aims
We focus on ways penetration testing can help strengthen your business, and consider the drivers behind testing. For example, we help explore risk brought on board during business change and product development. We adapt to requirements and flexibly apply methodologies to meet your objectives.
Our consultants are passionate about getting the right security outcomes. Our team includes professionals from a range of backgrounds, including development, systems and network administration. They bring real-world insight to our testing and provide straightforward, practical recommendations.
