Get peace of mind that your networks, computer systems and web apps are secure with our Penetration testing services.
Our Penetration Testing Service will identify the weaknesses and potential vulnerabilities in your security systems, giving you the chance to remedy them before it's too late.
Penetration testing (also known as pen testing) will reveal your security weaknesses and how vulnerable your company is to cyber attack, as well as identifying potential threats to your cyber security. Our comprehensive penetration testing uses ethical hacking techniques to target systems in an attempt to gain physical access. This type of penetration testing allows us to test the security risks associated to your networks, systems and web applications, diagnosing the flaws in your security before they can be exploited.
What is penetration testing?
Penetration Testing Service
Pen testing examines and evaluates an organisation’s digital infrastructure – networks, systems and web applications – to identify potential threats to security systems. With the use of genuine ethical hacking techniques, our team of CREST penetration testing certified experts conduct a simulated attack and are able to identify vulnerabilities in your infrastructure and provide you with the knowledge you need to prevent future attacks. Our penetration testing methodology is closely aligned with the OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project®) Top 10.
We have never conducted a systems pen test that didn’t find at least one vulnerability..
Pen tests identify:
- Where a hacker might target you
- How they would attack your systems
- How your defences would cope
- The potential impact of a breach
A standard penetration testing process will look for a range of vulnerabilities within your IT system
Insecure setup or configuration of networks
Our security professionals will attempt to breach your systems by looking for weak passwords and exploit vulnerabilities to open ports, unpatched applications and incorrectly set user privileges.
Incorrect encryption and authentication
Article 32 of the UK GDPR includes encryption as an example of an appropriate technical measure to secure data. Are you encrypting data to a sufficient standard?
Code and command injection
We’ll check that your web forms are built to protect against SQL injection attacks, and find how they behave when someone tries to interfere with them.
Cookies and sessions tokens are used to make applications more user friendly, but they can be exploited for malicious purposes, making you vulnerable to attack.
Web app testing
User facing systems, such as website applications, are the first things a hacker will seek to infiltrate. Our web application penetration testing service is the process of examining an organisation’s apps for vulnerabilities. Once the vulnerabilities are identified, we offer guidance and support on how to secure them to prevent future attacks via this method.
of all phishing emails are unwittingly opened by users
of network perimeters are breached during penetration testing
of penetration testing found evidence of previous breaches
General pen tests are conducted on an informed basis (known as white box testing) with our experts being given information about the internal network.
Starting off with limited knowledge, we will assemble key information from the public domain using passive information gathering techniques.
Using the information gathered during the reconnaissance stage,
our experts will assess the vulnerabilities in your organisation.
We will perform a thorough investigation to expose any business risks within your system’s security and test any vulnerabilities.
All penetration testing reports are reviewed by our lead pen tester to make sure we consistently deliver a high quality service
Our experts will securely deliver a bespoke risk assessment report of their findings, giving you a clear and complete understanding of any weaknesses in your systems.
Once the vulnerabilities have been addressed, you can schedule a
re-test of those specific elements to confirm you are fully protected.
External penetration testing mimics the attempts a hacker from outside the network would make to bypass your security measures and gain access to your systems. Identifying how gaps in your network could result in a breach allows you to make the necessary changes before they damage your business. Our comprehensive reporting will precisely outline your network’s vulnerabilities and the impact they could have on your business.
For any business processing card payments, it is crucial to be fully compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS).
It’s about more than just protecting your clients’ data. The credibility of your business (not to mention your revenue) is at risk; a systems security breach on your internal network could cause lasting damage to your reputation.
Hackers are always looking to intercept payments and steal credit card information. PCI DSS penetration testing can identify the threats to your platform and your business, helping you take action to avoid breaches by applying the right security measures.
A penetration of a network costs a business over £2M.
Can your business sustain such a significant spend?
Your clients stolen data may be sold on the dark web
Is your brand strong enough to withstand such a blow?
69% of customers said they would never return
Customers are less likely to buy from a breached organisation.
An internal security breach could prove extremely costly for your business. With our comprehensive pen testing, you’ll gain a unique insight into your internal networks, helping you pinpoint vulnerabilities, shore up security, and guard against threats from within the organisation itself.
Our certified testers will try to gain access of any kind and attempt to move through the network to acquire higher privileges. If our experts can gain system administrator access, this means that a hacker could too.
Red team engagements (simulated multi-layered targeted cyber attacks) are devised to achieve specific goals, such as gaining access to sensitive data or a business-critical application. Red teaming is heavily focused on in-depth evaluation and scoping to identify gaps in an organisation’s defences.
The value of this type of engagement comes from a better understanding of how an organisation detects and responds to real-world attacks.
