What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing, also known as pen testing, is a critical component in the cybersecurity strategy of any organisation. It involves a simulated cyber attack, meticulously designed to exploit the vulnerabilities of a system or network by replicating the activities of malicious actors. This process is conducted in a safe and controlled environment, allowing our cybersecurity experts to probe and assess the resilience of your digital infrastructure without any real-world risk.

During a penetration test, our pen testers emulate the tactics and techniques of real-world attackers. They systematically search for weaknesses in your network, applications, and other digital assets. This could include testing for susceptibilities to phishing attacks, breaches in application security, or weaknesses in your network’s defences. The objective is to identify and exploit any potential vulnerabilities before actual attackers can discover and leverage them, protecting your business from threats before they happen.
