Our advanced penetration tests are a fundamental part of your organisational risk-management process, whereby we examine the resilience of your security to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in systems such as networks, software, apps or websites.
When it comes to a penetration test (also known as a pen test), the goal of the exercise is simply to find all of the security vulnerabilities that exist in the systems being tested that an attacker could exploit and report on these. In this case, a vulnerability is anything that increases the likelihood of an attacker disrupting, or gaining unauthorised access to a system and any data contained within it.
our working processin 3 steps
Every step taken by your organisation to capture, store and process information can be tested: the systems and buildings that the information is stored in, the transmission channels that transport it, and the processes and personnel that manage it.MORE ABOUT US +
planning & strategy
At this point, they are ready to develop the strategy for the attack. Thanks to the information they’ve gathered so far, they can decide which tools and techniques to use to best hit the system.
This phase is the attack itself. Using the tools or techniques identified in the previous step, they exploit the vulnerability to break into the organisation. Mission accomplished.
We usually provide the organisation with a detailed report of the vulnerabilities found, the description of the attack they performed and recommended actions to secure your company.

Avoid downtime and Breach costs
Network downtime caused by a data breach can cost up to £3 million, with the average cost of a breach costing £36,500. Pen testing allows your organisation to help identify exploitable vulnerabilities proactively before they are exploited by a malicious attacker allowing you to intelligently plan remediation and give priority to critical and high level findings.
Penetration testing provides a severity ordered report, documenting vulnerabilities that are proven to be exploitable, removing false positives from the equation. Allowing your organisation to proactively identify which vulnerabilities are critical and which are less critical or false positives.
Meet Regulatory and Compliance Standards
Performing a penetration test helps companies and organisations address the general auditing requirements for PCI DSS. Testing also helps address ISO 27001 requirements by obtaining an organisations exposure to vulnerabilities and providing measures to remediate discovered issues.
Preserve Brand, Corporate image & customer confidence
Data breach, compromised accounts and exposed external data cost money and can negatively affect brand image and sales. Penetration testing helps identify and fix vulnerabilities that could be used to exfiltrate confidential, sensitive and personally identifiable information.
