CREST Approved Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing is the practice of assessing and evaluating a computer system, network or web application to expose susceptibilities. Also known as “pen testing” this method of intrusion prevention/detection looks for potential security flaws a hacker could exploit.

A Penetration Test is a manual assessment conducted by experienced security professionals who will actively attempt to “exploit” or gain access to a customer’s devices in order to identify the potential risk to the business. The main difference between a Vulnerability Scan and a Penetration Test is that during a Vulnerability Scan, hosts will be identified with potential issues, however within a Penetration Test these issues are thoroughly investigated and an attempt made to demonstrate the exploit and also how it could be used to gain access to other systems or devices. This provides a much more detailed view of the risk to the business.
