What is penetration testing?

Penetration testing, often referred to as "pen testing" is a cybersecurity practice where authorized individuals or teams simulate cyberattacks on a computer system, network, or application to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses. The primary goal of penetration testing is to assess the security of the target system by attempting to exploit potential vulnerabilities in a controlled and ethical manner.

Penetration testers, also known as ethical hackers, use a variety of techniques and tools to mimic the tactics and methods employed by real-world attackers. This process helps organizations identify security flaws that could be exploited by malicious hackers. Once vulnerabilities are discovered, they can be remediated to strengthen the overall security posture of the system or network.

For how long does penetration test lasts?

On average, it usually requires 2-3 business weeks.

What is the cost of penetration testing and security assessment?

The price of a penetration test can fluctuate significantly, influenced by factors such as the test type, the size of the company, the scope and intricacy of the assessment, the chosen methodology, the expertise of the penetration testers, and any expenses associated with addressing identified issues.

How does a penetration test differ from a vulnerability scan?

While a vulnerability scan exclusively depends on automated tools for identifying known vulnerabilities, a penetration test constitutes a more thorough assessment. Penetration testing integrates automated tools with human-driven techniques to uncover hidden vulnerabilities.

Which tools are employed by you?

Our team doesn't rely on automated scanning applications. Instead, they utilize a combination of open-source and commercial penetration testing tools to perform manual tasks like discovering networks and assets, mapping attack surfaces, and carrying out exploitation. This methodology is critical for uncovering concealed and complex vulnerabilities.
