Penetration Testing

It can go by several names - Pentest, Penetration Test, Ethical Hacking, Vulnerability Tests - but the goal is consistent: identify areas or risk so that your team can proactively remediate.

Engaging a 3rd party to test the strength of your network and applications is the best way to minimize your security risks and meet compliance requirements.

Understanding Pentests

Understanding your goals is the first step to establishing the scope, frequency, and type of test that is best suited to meet your needs.
Penetration testing is a way to identify gaps in your cyber security that a hacker or rogue employee could exploit to gather and compromise sensitive data. There are different types of penetration tests to evaluate specific areas of your environment – like whether your customers’ PII is encrypted, or the data in your cloud is secure.

Pentesting should be done on a regular basis to minimize cyber security risks and meet compliance regulations. It's often done annually but many companies also benefit from quarterly tests to avoid gaps in new code releases.

Black Box + White Box = Better Results

Pentesting has traditionally been either Black or White. We take a Grey Box approach that combines Black Box and White Box tactics to give you the most comprehensive pentesting. This method goes beyond scripts and automation to deliver better results that help minimize your risk.

  • A Black Box test is the most basic and is typically done via automated scans. In this scenario, the pentester will try to enter your network without any credentials.
  • A White Box test is a more advanced approach in which the pentester is given credentials to access your environment and see what they can do once inside.
  • Grey box testing involves both automated scans to test the strength of your credentials and manual testing by an expert.

Our Approach

We take a customer-focused and communicative approach to every penetration test. We keep you informed of what we’ll be testing and what you can expect next.
