Penetration testing determines where your organization’s security weaknesses are. If your objective is to reduce audit findings, enhance your current network security or simply raise employee awareness of cyber security, penetration testing helps to bring an organization’s security to the next level.

Penetration Testing & Security Weakness
We perform a variety of penetration testing modalities to determine where your organizations security weaknesses lie. Whether your objective is to reduce audit findings, enhance your current network security or simply raise employee awareness with regard to cyber security, our penetration testing program will help to bring your organizations security system to the next level.
Pen tests can be automated with software applications or they can be performed manually. Either way, the process includes gathering information about the target before the test (reconnaissance), identifying possible entry points, attempting to break in (either virtually or for real) and reporting back the findings.
The main objective of penetration testing is to determine security weaknesses. A pen test can also be used to test an organization’s security policy compliance, its employees’ security awareness and the organization’s ability to identify and respond to security incidents.
Targeted testing is performed by the organization’s IT team and the penetration testing team working together. It’s sometimes referred to as a “lights-turned-on” approach because everyone can see the test being carried out.
This type of pen test targets a company’s externally visible servers or devices including domain name servers (DNS), email servers, web servers or firewalls. The objective is to find out if an outside attacker can get in and how far they can get in once they’ve gained access.
This test mimics an inside attack behind the firewall by an authorized user with standard access privileges. This kind of test is useful for estimating how much damage a disgruntled employee could cause.
A blind test strategy simulates the actions and procedures of a real attacker by severely limiting the information given to the person or team that’s performing the test beforehand. Typically, they may only be given the name of the company. Because this type of test can require a considerable amount of time for reconnaissance, it can be expensive.
Double Blind Testing
Double blind testing takes the blind test and carries it a step further. In this type of pen test, only one or two people within the organization might be aware a test is being conducted. Double-blind tests can be useful for testing an organization’s security monitoring and incident identification as well as its response procedures.
