CREST-Approved Penetration Testing

On average, organisations have a 27.7% chance of suffering a material data breach in the next two years, according to Ponemon Institute’s 2017 Cost of Data Breach Study. Let our experts put your defences to the test. Stay ahead of the hackers with affordable penetration testing.


Our penetration testing services

Penetration testing (pen testing) is the practice of assessing and evaluating a computer system, network, wireless network or web application to expose vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit.

Make it even harder for cyber criminals to succeed

Most organisations are the target of random, indiscriminate attacks, and they need an appropriate level of penetration testing to ensure their defences are adequate. Instead of automatically generated reports from tools that offer generic remediation tips, you need advice from experts who can rank and rate the vulnerabilities so that you can plan remediation in accordance with the risk and your budget.


Our penetration testing solutions

Our experienced CREST-accredited consultants assess your data security by applying robust methodologies to deliver a realistic appraisal of the current state of your security and the risks that attackers pose to your business.

Involves attempting to exploit the identified vulnerabilities to see whether it is possible to access your assets and resources. This more thorough assessment of your security posture enables you to make more accurate decisions about investing in securing your business-critical systems.

Advantages of penetration tests

  • Accurately evaluate your organisation’s ability to protect its networks, applications, endpoints and users from determined attackers.

  • Communicate and prove the need for a security budget with business managers and non-tech folk.

  • Get detailed information on actual, exploitable security threats to identify which vulnerabilities are more critical, which are less significant and which are false positives.

  • Protect your company’s profits and reputation by avoiding the financial costs and negative publicity associated with a compromise of your systems.

  • More intelligently prioritise remediation, apply necessary security patches and allocate security resources more effectively to ensure they are available when and where they are needed most.

  • Address the general auditing aspects of regulations – such as the NYDFS Cybersecurity Requirements, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), ISO 27001 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – and avoid significant fines for non-compliance.
