What is Penetration Testing?
Penetration Testing Definition
The art of exploiting vulnerabilities and vulnerabilities in networks, web applications, or people. This is different from simply running a vulnerability scan on your network. The penetration test takes into account the perspective of an external intruder or an internal person with malicious intent. It may not always include technology, but engineering controls are helpful in preventing data usability and compromise.

Too often companies take a narrow, reactive approach to cybersecurity. However, we work with companies to help them actively block hackers and pinpoint small and often overlooked security holes that allow intruders on your system to access highly sensitive data – resulting in significant financial losses.
Why do you need a penetration test?
Even with the most stringent of safeguards and precautions, there are vulnerabilities that put your business at risk of the unknown. This gap may not understand, i.e. B. databases, applications or access to websites – even your own employees. Each of these access points offers a direct route to confidential electronic data such as financial data, patient information, strategic or confidential documents.
The Pentest service was deepened to identify access routes, assess the potential value of each, and provide a clear roadmap for elimination. Apart from being a smart business practice, penetration testing is an annual requirement for those who need to comply with leading regulations such as PCI, FERPA, HITECH, FISMA, SOX, GLBA, FACTA and GDPR.
Enables our team of experienced and ethical hackers to carry out comprehensive assessments of potential vulnerabilities, prioritize them and recommend ways to block attacks before their bottom line is compromised.
Different types of penetration tests.
- External Network Penetration Testing. We identify potential network attack routes that can be accessed via servers or network devices connected to people outside your organization who do not have the appropriate rights or authority. We then carried out a fake attack to test the security controls. We will develop and provide you with a cybersecurity assessment of the results, as well as solutions and recommendations to help you fix the problem.
- Internal Network Penetration Testing. We help companies reduce the risk that internal threats pose to their corporate network. While external testing examines the paths that remote hackers can use to access the network, internal testing examines ways in which employees or insiders can cause breaches, or ignore, intentionally, or accidentally download applications such as ransomware or malware. potentially damaging the entire network.
- Application Penetration Test. We investigate potential threats and vulnerabilities caused by your company’s many Internet-based applications. Web applications are easily accessible from anywhere in the world and easy to compromise. They provide important access points for credit card, customer, and financial data. Vulnerability Assessment Services tests the security of existing solutions and controls by providing recommendations and strategies to block access to data stored on them.
- Wireless Penetration Testing. We provide advanced expertise in a variety of wireless technologies and ethical hacking services to investigate and identify potential entry points where hackers can break into your internal network. This includes threat assessment and security controls for traditional Wi-Fi and custom systems. We then compile the results in a cybersecurity assessment report which includes recommendations that you can enter to reduce harm.
- Social Engineering Penetration Testing. We study employees to understand how well they understand your company’s information security policies and practices so you can understand how easily unauthorized people can persuade employees to share confidential information. Psychological manipulation intrusion tests can include badge access points and fake phishing attacks or password renewal requests. We will then recommend ways to increase success through training or new processes that help employees better protect confidential data.
We start with a simple question: which entry point are criminals least likely to use to gather the information that has the greatest potential impact on your endpoints? From this question we outline possible targets for attack and points of entry on electronic, physical and human devices. This includes information that your own employees may publish, vulnerabilities in email or login passwords, remote access, and mobile fingerprints. We then conducted several days of investigations to assess potential vulnerabilities from all angles.
We then replace your potential attacker to determine risk and overall ranking. Based on what we know about current features, strategies, techniques and tools, we document any digital assets that may pose a risk to you. We then prioritize that the risk has occurred based on the net asset value in the event of a loss.
To test our results, we simulated an ethical hacking attack that primarily focused on high quality targets. These tests are tailored to suit your unique environment, vulnerabilities and technology. The results are prioritized and summarized in our recommendations so that you can focus your resources on the areas that reduce the greatest potential losses.
Penetration Testing report
We will present a detailed results and results report which will give you a complete picture of your safety position. Pentest reports are tailored so that each company achieves its original goals and is adapted to its own industry and regulatory environment.
Our reports provide an overview and technical details of each penetration test, as well as an assessment of your overall risk. Know the likelihood, power, and potential loss prediction of an attack, as well as the controls currently in place to prevent this event. Ensure that the steps necessary to comply with PCI, FERPA, GLBA, SOX, HIPAA, or GDPR have been taken. You will also find useful information and recommendations for risk reduction in the short, medium and long term.
