Penetration Testing

Penetration testing, also known as pen testing or ethical hacking.

Penetration Testing Services

Various UK regulations, not least GDPR and PCI-DSS, call for regular vulnerability testing of Websites that might contain Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and credit-card or other financial information. The reality is that those categories of information pretty-much cover every commercial Website that has any sort of login capability, but sadly the organisations behind them often fail to uncover flaws in the design that later prove to be disastrous, not only in terms of lost or stolen data, but in fines, ruined reputations and ultimately business failure.

Aside from the legal and regulatory obligations, it is critical that flaws are uncovered and rectified in a timely manner, arguably even more critical than locking the front door or closing the Windows overnight, simply to stop thieves from stealing your business.

Web Applications Penetration Testing

But asking a Web developer to assure you that their work is secure is simply not good enough, on many levels, but in particular it is not good enough in the eyes of the law. The security of the site needs to be tested, not once, but regularly, and identified vulnerabilities mitigate quickly. To do this with a pen-tester alone would be extremely difficult and hugely expensive, which is why we also make available automated services that will scan for thousands of vulnerabilities as regularly as you like.

Knowing that a vulnerability exists is one thing, but we go one step further by giving you a full report on what the vulnerability is, where it is AND how it can be rectified.

Services can be tailored for any number of Websites and are priced accordingly, and can work out as little as £99 per month.

Why your business needs penetration testing

  • Fixing vulnerabilities before they are exploited by cybercriminals
  • Providing independent assurance of security controls
  • Supporting PCI DSS, ISO 27001 and GDPR compliance
  • Demonstrating a continuous commitment to security
  • Improve your companies understanding of cyber security risks

Network Penetration Testing

Despite the best efforts of your IT support professionals and the seemingly endless money you spend on security controls, there is no way to fully guarantee the effectiveness of any of it without putting it to the test.

A full penetration test will eliminate the guesswork out of the resultant systems and either provide assurance that your procedures, policies and systems are working the way you expect, or provide you with some early warning of impending dangers from internal and external threats to your systems that stand a chance of becoming exploits.

You will be provided with a fully documented account of all tests undertaken, the results, classifications and recommended actions.

Pen tests can be performed internally, externally or both, providing full coverage of all business IT systems from every angle.
