What is the right penetration test for you?

It seems like we hear about another data breach on a daily basis. Recognised companies such as Facebook, Ticketmaster and Dixons Carphone – to name but a few – have recently suffered at the hands of criminal hackers, who are gaining access to organisations’ networks using a variety of techniques.  

Penetration testing is a systematic process of probing for vulnerabilities in your applications and networks. It is essentially a controlled form of hacking in which the ‘attackers’ operate on your behalf to find the sorts of weaknesses that criminals exploit.

The penetration testing process involves assessing your chosen systems for any potential weaknesses that could result from poor or improper system configuration, known and unknown hardware or software flaws, and operational weaknesses in process or technical countermeasures.

An experienced penetration tester can mimic the techniques used by criminals without causing damage. These tests are usually conducted outside business hours or when networks and applications are least used, thereby minimising the impact on everyday operations.

A range of penetration tests are available to help you secure your network:
