Penetration testing (also known as pen testing) is a security practice whereby a cyber security expert attempts to find and exploit as many vulnerabilities in an environment. The purpose of such an exercise is to identify weak spots that an actual attacker could take advantage of, and gain valuable insight on how to improve and protect the tested environment.

Our security consultants use a combination of manual and automated techniques to identify vulnerabilities. Once identified, the tester attempts to exploit the vulnerabilities to see what additional access, information and privileges can be gained. We don’t just give a best effort test or simply attempt to get in. Instead, we work to find all vulnerabilities and provide a full audit for potential security issues. This type of laser-like focus helps your organisation build a more resilient and impenetrable security posture.
