Are you protecting your stakeholders?
Financial fraud, denial of service, malware, espionage, phishing, identity fraud and spam are some of the threats your business may face. Are your security controls operating effectively to manage the risks that these threats pose?
Our services are offered in two forms, overt and covert:
An overt test is where the penetration test team and the customer employees co-operate fully in the test. The penetration test team will learn the full environment of IP’s provided and will formulate tests accordingly. This ensures that all possible routes of entry into the company systems are identified and tested.
A covert test is where the existence of the test is only known to the penetration test team and key customer employees. The penetration test team will approach the customer network as would any external hacker or disgruntled employee, and will have no prior knowledge of the customer environment. This allows security to be tested in the same way as a real hacker would, and also tests the security detection and response capabilities of the customer. (Outside of hours recommended).
What is penetration testing?
Penetration testing services (also known as security health checks, vulnerability assessments or security audits) are designed to identify vulnerabilities and threats within the security perimeter of an organisation’s networks, information and communication services and applications, to prevent the threat of external attacks.
The value of penetration testing
We provide evidence of any system weakness and the extent to which it may be possible for unauthorised personnel to gain access to and / or even misuse information assets from a system’s boundary. Regular, unbiased penetration testing can assist in focusing security resources where they are needed most, and provide a baseline for remedial action, in order to constantly ensure an information protection strategy.
