What is Penetration Testing?
A Penetration Test (also referred to as a ‘Pen Test’) is an assault on your organisation’s network with the aim of testing the ability of your systems to withstand a cyber-attack.
The test is executed in an ethical manner so as not to disrupt your actual business operations, while actively identifying exploitable system weaknesses. Once identified, remediation techniques can be applied to address these vulnerabilities and secure your IT infrastructure.Contact our experts
Types of Penetration Tests
There are different types of penetration tests, all of which focus on various aspects of an organisation’s logical perimeter; the boundary separating a business network from the internet.
- Internal network penetration tests
- External network penetration tests
- Web application penetration tests
- Wireless network penetration tests
- Mobile application penetration tests
- Physical device penetration tests
The Importance of Penetration Testing
Penetration tests are a key security assessment for many organisations, undertaken at routine intervals and identify exploitable vulnerabilities in complex networks and computer systems. The information generated from such tests can provide valuable information about the security status of a business and act as a commercial ‘enabler’, with a clean bill of health ensuring that new commercial agreements can be signed, and new ventures can be pursued with a high level of confidence.
Conducting regular security testing will help to:
- Ensure that your existing IT security is effective;
- Identify security flaws so that appropriate controls are implemented;
- Test new and existing software and systems for vulnerabilities;
- Demonstrate a security commitment to external and internal stakeholders.
- Support compliance with relevant privacy laws and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018;
