Evaluate your resiliency and ability to respond to a direct attack by a determined adversary

In this kind of test, our consultants are focused on finding the shortest path to compromise your organization, service, or application. Think narrow and deep.

At the end of the day, your organization is already getting a free penetration test by being connected to the Internet. What it isn't getting is the report and guidance necessary to address the issues found.

What a penetration test is for

With a "pen test", we're looking to identify weaknesses across your infrastructure that leave vulnerable the things that matter most to your business.

Penetration tests can also be used to:

  • Test an operational monitoring or incident response team’s effectiveness in identifying an active threat.
  • Validate the degree to which policy is implemented across people, process, and technology.
  • Ensure compliance with regulation.
  • Evaluate your cyber defense capabilities. (Can you see the attacks happening? Can you respond? Can you determine what happened?)

How penetration tests work

We treat each test as a customized service. Organizations use pen tests for a wide range of reasons, so we aim to understand what's critical to you to protect and what you're looking to test.

As we work to understand the scope of the penetration test, we may design an approach as simple as an external network penetration or something as complex as testing human control and process (technical support, executive staff, etc), or even including physical entry to a location with network access or sensitive information.

You can’t install a tool and get a penetration test. Penetration tests rely on the experience of the team conducting the test to adjust their techniques and execution to meet the goals of the client and mimic a real adversary.

When we're done, we sit down for a collaborative debrief session between our team, your developers and stakeholders. We review the report and discuss the findings, answering any questions you may have.
