Penetration testing offers an overview of your organisation’s present security status.

Every organisation possesses an IT infrastructure, ranging from basic internet and email services to fully operational cloud and web applications, which often handle sensitive or valuable data.

Any breach of these systems not only results in a network intrusion but also poses the danger of unauthorised data access. Such an occurrence can be regarded as a substantial public setback, undermining trust, reputation, and confidence, ultimately endangering the organisation’s stability.

Penetration testing takes a proactive approach by assessing not only the IT equipment, such as servers, workstations, mobile devices, web applications, and network design but also the operational practices of IT personnel and users. Its goal is to identify any vulnerabilities or weaknesses that may exist. The results obtained from this testing provide an up-to-date snapshot of your organisation’s IT security profile, highlighting any vulnerabilities and offering relevant advice for remediation. This includes:

  • Development of a comprehensive security action plan
  • Evaluation of the overall posture of IT systems
  • Provision of tools to educate staff and users on best practices for their daily roles
  • Our testers have access to the latest commercial and private tools, exploits, and frameworks and have undergone comprehensive training in the latest techniques to ensure efficient, accurate, and reliable tests.
