A penetration test (also known as pen testing, ethical hacking, security consulting, security testing or IT Health Check) simulates hacking attempts on networks, websites and applications, in order to identify security vulnerabilities that a real hacker could exploit.
Penetration testing provides a detailed analysis of an organisation’s security posture and will highlight areas where improvements need to be made. This type of analysis is necessary to defend against an ever-increasing level of threat from industrial sabotage/espionage, disgruntled employees, viruses and other malware, remote hackers, foreign intelligence agencies and organised crime.
Our penetration testing team’s tests are from both an external and internal perspective; At completion of our testing we provide you with a detailed report. This provides identified vulnerabilities are analysed and categorised according to risk levels and detailed recommendations are made that will enable the client to take remedial action and close the issue with minimal effort.
