Penetration testing is essential to information security, since it is through testing that real-world exploits are carefully simulated with the goals of: assessing potential impact within the context of a multi-layered security environment, and thereby prioritizing mitigation and remediation efforts in the manner that is best suited to your organization and the needs of your employees, stakeholders, and clients.
Testing can be a cost-effective way to evaluate specific security solutions and products. For example, you might want to test the effectiveness of your anti-virus or EDR services; or you might want to assess the responsiveness of your Network Monitoring service. And simulated incidents can also help with training your internal and external incident response resources and with refining your incident response policies and procedures.
Our penetration testing methodology is meant to be holistic. It begins with information-gathering so that the testing process is informed and tailored to your organizational assets.
From there the testing can proceed in various ways, depending on the desired level of service and focus (e.g. social engineering, LAN/ WLAN testing, web application testing, etc).
In each case, though, our goal is more than simply the exploitation of a vulnerability. Our goal is to support you and your team so that you can mitigate the risk of having someone else exploit the vulnerability.
