Penetration Testing

Regular penetration testing helps you stay one step ahead of cyber-criminals, by identifying vulnerabilities before they can be maliciously exploited.

Understand where the vulnerabilities in your environment exist so you can remediate them before malicious actors exploit them. 

Malicious actors are constantly hunting for vulnerable systems they can exploit in order to gain access to confidential information. 

Regular penetration testing helps you stay one step ahead of cyber-criminals, by identifying vulnerabilities before they can be maliciously exploited.

What are Penetration Testing services?

Vulnerabilities in your network, web or mobile applications, endpoints, cloud environment, wireless networks, or mobile services such as APIs, can all be exploited by malicious actors. 

Penetration testing interrogates these systems to identify hidden vulnerabilities, thereby allowing you to remediate them before cyber-criminals have a chance to exploit them.

Using a combination of the latest vulnerability scanning tools, as well manual interrogation techniques, our penetration testing services give you assurance that your organisation will be resilient in the face of malicious actors.

What are the benefits?

Comply with a range of cyber security standards that mandate regular penetration testing

Gain assurance that your environment will be resilient in the face of determined malicious actors

Rapid remediation of vulnerabilities is significantly more cost-effective than cleaning up following a cyber breach

We work with you to identify the threat landscape your organisation faces and which of your systems are most at risk. This helps us determine an appropriate scope of systems that will be tested.


We undertake extensive reconnaissance to understand the inner workings of your organisation, including business systems, information flows, roles and responsibilities of personnel, and access levels. This helps us identify potential gaps that may point to exploitable vulnerabilities.


We begin with extensive scanning of your environment in order to identify known vulnerabilities that require patching. We then proceed to manual interrogation and exploitation of suspected hidden vulnerabilities. This simulates the manner in which a real-world hacker would seek to exploit your environment. All exploitation is conducted in full coordination with you in order to minimise any risk of system disruption.


We provide extensive reporting into any identified vulnerabilities. Using a risk-based approach, vulnerabilities are categorised according to the threat they are likely to pose to your organisation. Our reports also incorporate recommended remediation actions.

Frequently asked questions

That depends on the nature of your environment, and the threat landscape you face. 

Many information security compliance standards mandate periodic penetration testing. Additionally, you should undertake a penetration test any time you introduce a new system into your environment or update an existing system. 

Application penetration testing is most common, as the majority of cyber attacks occur through vulnerabilities in the application layer. 

Additionally, external and internal network penetration testing is commonly undertaken. An external penetration test identifies vulnerabilities in your network’s perimeter defences. An internal penetration test identifies vulnerabilities in the walls that separate the various segments inside your network, which are designed to prevent unauthorised lateral movement.
