Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing

Ensuring that vulnerabilities that could leave your organisation open to attack are minimised is an essential part of any cyber security strategy – for small, medium-sized and large businesses alike.

Once identified, these weak points – which can be within network infrastructure, application, internal processes, or even business logic – can be remediated to strengthen your overall security posture, ultimately helping you to harden your defences against malicious users and provide a heightened level of security.

Penetration testing not only helps to improve security, but can also facilitate a more efficient and effective use of budgetary resources.

How we can help

Our penetration tests are performed in a controlled environment utilising means and methods similar to those that a real-world unauthorised attacker would use to penetrate an organisation’s IT and communications systems. Once we identify a vulnerability, we will establish the impact of that vulnerability and provide the relevant remediation advice. This enables our clients to understand the implications on the business and to identify opportunities to improve systems, design and development processes, or operational policies and procedures.

We can carry out:

  • Application Security Assessments
  • Cloud Security Assessments
  • Internal and External Infrastructure Testing
  • MDM Configuration Reviews
  • Mobile Application and Device Security
  • Red Team and Scenario Based Testing
  • Code Reviews
  • Build Reviews
  • NCSC Health Checks, Product Assurance and Tailored Assurance Services

After the completion of a test, a detailed report will be provided clearly stating the technical impact and ease of exploitation of the issues found. If required, we can also provide in-depth post-testing support.
