Uncover your IT Vulnerabilities with Cyber Security Penetration Testing

A penetration test, also called a pen test, pentest or ethical hacking, is an authorized, simulated cyberattack on a computer network or web application. This is performed to evaluate the security stance of the system. The test is performed to identify vulnerabilities, including the potential for unauthorized criminals to gain access to the system’s data. It also indicates the systems strengths, enabling a full risk assessment to be carried out.

The process of a pentest typically identifies the part of the systems that is within scope and a particular goal to achieve such as access to sensitive information. The test is then performed, usually by various means to so that all routes in are tested. A penetest target may be a white box (about which background and system information are provided in advance to the tester) or a black box (about which only basic information such as the company name is provided). A grey box pentest is a combination of the two (where only a limited amount of knowledge of the target is provided to the tester). A pentest can help identify any issues with a system that can be exploited during an attack (and estimate how vulnerable it is).

Any security issues that the penetration test discovers should be reported to the system owner directly and without delay. A penetration test reports should also assess the potential impacts to the business and suggest countermeasures to reduce or mitigate the risk.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) describes pentesting as: “A method for gaining assurance in the security of an IT system by attempting to breach some or all of that system’s security, using the same tools and techniques as an adversary might.”

The end goals of a pentest vary significantly depending on the type of activity approved for any given system and the primary goal focused on finding vulnerabilities that could be exploited by cybercriminals and informing the client of those issues along with recommended mitigation strategies.

We can provide a variety of pentest services including web app pentesting, wireless pentesting and Network pentesting. Once the pentest is carried out, a report is issued with any vulnerabilities found and any remediating actions to be carried out.

Network pentesting is the testing of the security posture on your physical network infrastructure. This can be done in numerous ways i.e. from outside the network and attempt to remotely gain access to the network with very little or no information about the network (this is known as a black hat pentest). Having a great deal of the information about the network before you start is known as a white hat pentest and knowing some of the information is known as a grey hat pentest.

A white hat pentest would be swifter and would potentially cover more of the network as it is already known whereas a black hat might not find all of the network.

Wireless pentesting will test the security posture of a wifi network infrastructure. Anyone within range of your wireless network may be able to break in and steal your sensitive information. A wireless pentest will identify any vulnerabilities and recommend any remediation to prevent this.

Web app pentesting. The majority of companies have some sort of web application such as a website or web programme involving a database that usually houses sensitive data. Testing any web app that can access this sensitive data is therefore crucial so that you can be confident that hackers are not going to be stealing this data.
