Penetration Testing

Identify vulnerabilities, enhance your cybersecurity strategy and stance, and markedly decrease the likelihood of experiencing a security incident or facing compromise.

Conduct a simulated attack on an organization with the aim of identifying and uncovering potential security vulnerabilities, thereby enhancing the comprehensive assessment of its security measure

Numerous organizations tend to focus solely on a fraction of their attack surface during security testing, often limited to a single web application or the network perimeter.

Our penetration testing services, led by skilled professionals, involve simulating an attack on an organization to unveil and assess its security vulnerabilities comprehensively.

95% of security budgets will increase over the next two years — 56% of them “significantly.”

42% Increase in using MSSPs/outsourcers to assist in security

2022: 35% of organizations reported data/systems held hostage. Subsequent year: Increase to 43% in such incidents

The Benefits of Penetration Testing

Penetration testing is an essential component of an effective cyber security strategy. It can help you achieve the following benefits:

– Compliance with regulatory and industry standards: Penetration testing can help you demonstrate that you meet the requirements of various regulations and frameworks, such as PCI DSS, ISO 27001, POPIA, NIST CSF, and GDPR.
– Awareness of vulnerabilities: Penetration testing can reveal the weaknesses in your systems, networks, applications, and processes that could be exploited by malicious actors.
-Understanding current threats: Penetration testing can simulate real-world attacks and scenarios that are relevant to your industry and environment. This can help you understand the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) of your adversaries and how to defend against them.
– Improved security posture: Penetration testing can provide you with a comprehensive report that outlines the findings, risks, and remediation steps for each vulnerability. This can help you prioritise and implement the necessary security measures to enhance your security posture.
– Reduced downtime and costs: Penetration testing can help you prevent or minimise the impact of a security breach, which could result in costly downtime, data loss, reputational damage, legal liabilities, and fines.
