Identify and resolve the exploitable vulnerabilities in your enterprise security posture
Penetration testing enhances security by spotting loopholes in a system before an attacker can take advantage of them. It helps businesses evaluate their security posture, strengthen their defenses, and prioritize their security investments by replicating a real-world assault scenario.
Penetration testing enables adherence to industry standards and legal regulations, as well as demonstrates due diligence to stakeholders.
Your security strategy is incomplete without penetration testing. Enable early detection and mitigation of security vulnerabilities and safeguard organizational assets, reputation, and financial health.
While all penetration tests involve simulated attacks, you need focused tests for particular enterprise assets.
Application pen tests discover vulnerabilities in applications and related systems, including websites, mobile and IoT apps, cloud apps, and APIs. Common application vulnerabilities include malicious code injections, authentication failures, and misconfigurations.
Network pen tests cover the entirety of an enterprise's IT network, divided in two broad types: external tests and internal tests. In external tests, the testing team mimics external hackers to find issues in internet-facing assets. In internal tests, the team mimics malicious insiders by misusing credentials.
Hardware pen tests explore weaknesses in endpoint devices like laptops, mobile, and IoT devices. The testing team looks for flaws in operating systems or exploitable physical vulnerabilities. Tests also assess lateral movement of hackers from a compromised device to other parts of the network.
Personnel pen testing focuses on the human element in security vulnerabilities, such as the company’s vulnerability to social engineering attacks. The testers use phishing, spear phishing, vishing (voice phishing), and smishing (SMS phishing) to test the employee security awareness levels.
Comply with regulatory requirements and industry standards by identifying vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could lead to data breaches or other security incidents. By performing regular penetration testing, organizations can demonstrate their commitment to security and due diligence to auditors and regulators.
Penetration testing can be tailored to an organization's particular requirements. Organizations can select from a variety of testing methods and tools to test specific systems, applications, or networks, depending on the scope and goals of the test.
Penetration testing can be a cost-effective way for organizations to identify and address security risks, as it can help them to avoid the costly consequences of a data breach or other security incident. By investing in regular penetration testing, organizations can identify and address security risks before they become a serious problem, and can save money on costly remediation and legal expenses that could result from a security incident.
Penetration testing can provide organizations with valuable insights into their security posture and help them to proactively monitor and manage their security risks. By identifying vulnerabilities and weaknesses, organizations can prioritize their security investments, implement appropriate security controls, and continuously monitor and improve their security posture.

This preliminary stage is critical for defining the objectives of the pen test, the systems that need to be addressed, and the testing methods to be used.
At this point the testers are ready to breach your systems. It involves exploiting the target’s weaknesses using attack tactics like cross-site scripting, SQL injections, and backdoors.
The objective now is to determine whether the flaw can be used to establish a continuous presence in the system being exploited—long enough for a malicious player to obtain in-depth access.
In order to obtain sensitive data from an organization, testers imitate sophisticated persistent threats which can frequently stay in a system for months.
This is the intelligence-gathering stage where analysts seek to better understand how the target system operates and pinpoint its potential vulnerabilities.
The third step primarily focuses on scanning the network, applications, website, and web applications for possible exploitable vulnerabilities via static and dynamic analysis.
Penetration testing reports typically contain information on particular flaws that were exploited, sensitive information that was accessed, and how long the tester was able to hide in the system.
Security employees examine this data to assist in configuring an enterprise's WAF settings and other application security tools to fix vulnerabilities and defend against upcoming assaults.
