A Penetration test is a simulated cyber-attack against your computer systems to check for exploitable vulnerabilities.
So why do you need a Penetration test? Whilst other cyber security assessments answer the question – “What are our weaknesses, and how do we fix them?” Penetration testing checks, “Can someone break in, and what can that attacker get access to?”
Penetration tests identifies all potential entry points into the network, including unsecured ports, unpatched vulnerabilities, misconfigured systems, and weak passwords. It tests your systems ability to detect breaches in the event of a real Cyber-attack.
Our experts are enterprise security engineers, forensic computer scientists and networking professionals and not accountants or consultants.
We check vulnerabilities related to TCP/IP protocols and services. We specifically look for problems in your DMZ, router and firewall set-up, the configuration of your systems, and unauthorised access to the hosts, network devices or applications in your environment.
Once identified, we validate these vulnerabilities by attempting to exploit the weaknesses in your systems. Penetrating your infrastructure is the only true means of establishing what issues exist. This eliminates the problem of false positives resulting from poor validation by inexperienced engineers.
We then provide a report with an executive summary, describing a high-level overview of identified control gaps, suggested improvements and an actionable list of tasks for review and undertaking.
Our aim is to find vulnerabilities in your systems, networks and applications before the hackers do. Nostra acting as ethical hackers, provide a simulated cyber-attack without the damaging consequences.
By the end of the Penetration test, you will have found gaps in the security technology in place, configuration and coding standards and have established how a hacker would behave simulating as close as possible a real-life scenario.
If you haven’t done a Penetration test in the last year time to get in touch.
Stay ahead of attackers and reduce risk. Our expert Cyber assessment and compliance services help you build in cyber security across your entire IT environment.
