CREST accredited Penetration Testing services examining business infrastructure and systems to identify security vulnerabilities.
A penetration test is an exercise where an ethical hacker will try to compromise an organisation (or asset) in an attempt to identify existing security vulnerabilities. In essence, a penetration test is an authorised simulated cyberattack on a computer system.
The objective of the penetration test is to simulate a real-world attack scenario to determine if a client could be compromised by a real-world cybercriminal. Once vulnerabilities are identified, and the client is informed, they can fix the security holes.
