Testing your World

Test Everything. Secure Everything.

Penetration testing, also referred to as pen testing, is a simulated real world attack on a network, application, or system that identifies vulnerabilities and weaknesses. Penetration tests (pen tests) are part of an industry recognised approach to identifying and quantifying risk. They actively attempt to ‘exploit’ vulnerabilities and exposures in a company’s infrastructure, applications, people and processes. Through exploitation, Nettitude is able to provide context around the vulnerability, impact, threat and the likelihood of a breach in an information asset.

Benefits of Penetration Testing:

It is frequently possible for a pen tester to gain remote access to operating systems, application logic and database records. Through active exploitation of direct and interconnected systems, Nettitude can provide strategic guidance on risk and tailored advice on counter measures.

Manage your risk – A penetration test identifies vulnerabilities in your environment and allows you to remediate them, before an adversary takes advantage of them.

Protects clients, partners and third parties – it shows your clients that you take cyber security seriously, and it builds trust and a good reputation, that you’re doing everything you can to mitigate the risks of a cyber breach.

Allows you to understand the environment –A penetration test allows you to understand what is going on in the environment around you, and it helps you to understand the types of cyber attacks that your organisation may face.

Identifies weaknesses you didn’t know were there – Penetration testing looks for the potential backdoors into your network that exist without your knowledge.
