Penetration testing services

From classic pen testing services, attack simulation to red teaming, our penetration testers apply the logic used by cybercriminals to uncover your security weakness

What is penetration testing?

Penetration testing is a simulated cyber attack against an organization to identify security exposure in a system and business process. Our penetration testers will attempt to breach any software and hardware from a hacker’s perspective to uncover exploitable vulnerabilities and logic errors that could put your business at risk. Insights gathered from the testing services can be used to verify security controls and improve your organization’s vulnerability assessment and management process.

A well scoped penetration test is essential for identifying business risks present in an operational system and providing assurance for security best practice.

46% of organizations uncovered a critical flaw which could have put their business at risk using penetration testing


Penetration testing types

Network penetration testing

The purpose of this common type of pen test is to detect security vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the network environment including servers, firewalls and IT equipment before they can become exploitable by hackers.

Web application penetration testing

This penetration testing service is used to discover application vulnerabilities in web services. Pen testers use different skills and attack simulation techniques to identify security flaws such as SQL injection and XSS in proprietary as well as open source applications with the aim to gain access to sensitive data. For applications that get updated often and need regular testing, it's worth considering pen-testing-as-a-service for better cost efficiency.

Mobile application penetration testing

Mobile application pen testing provides a complete assessment of your mobile application to identify security issues that can endanger your users, expose sensitive information and cause reputation damage. Clear remediation instructions are provided with consultant assisted remediation guidance, helping you understand and secure your mobile applications running on IOS and android.

Physical penetration testing

This pen test simulates a real-world attack whereby a penetration tester attempts to compromise physical security to access a business’s network, building, or personnel with a goal to launch a cyber attack to identify security gaps.

Social engineering penetration testing

This type of pen test focuses on the people and process element of security, using a variety of phishing techniques to trick users into sharing sensitive information or opening a malicious file. It’s a great way to evaluate the security awareness of your employees and their adherence to company policies.

Penetration testing solutions by Outpost24

Knowing what could go wrong is key to improving cyber defense. We offer a holistic testing approach from classic penetration testing to advanced breach assessment and scenario-based attack simulation to explore hidden threats

compliance testing

Penetration Testing & Compliance

Classic pen testing services including exploitation on a pre-defined scope for network infrastructure, web application and mobile application. This can also be used to report regulatory obligations such as PCI, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley or internal policy compliance like CIS controls

ethical hacking

Digital Footprint Assessment 

The use of cloud services has skyrocketed and so as the risk of cyber attacks. Our pen testers gather info about your business' internet facing systems through OSINT and put your external network to the test by formulating potential attacks to reveal the effectiveness of your perimeter defence 

ethical hacking

 Assumed Breach Assessment

The mass migration to home working has created new security challenges for remote workers. Our operatives will assess your security measures from inside and out in the event of a breach from passive network monitoring to active exploit for a true picture of your defence mechanisms

red teaming

Red Team Assessment

For companies with mature security controls, a scenario-based attack simulation in which our pen testers will try to obtain pre-defined crown jewels using adversarial tools, tactics and procedures relevant to uncover attack paths provides the ultimate validation for your defensive response and cyber resilience

Key elements of a success penetration test

detailed reports

Planning and Scoping

In this planning phase it's critical to define your goals for the security assessment. Agree the pen test scope and your objectives with the chosen service provider including on or off-site requirements, the volume of servers and assets involved and the timing and duration of the penetration test

real time

Pre Attack Phase

A pre-attack exercise is required when your testing service starts to create an in-depth plan for execution to deliver the best result. During this reconnaissance phase, testers will gather open-source intelligence or any publicly available information and data that they can use to exploit your systems

reporting

Attack Phase

Once a list of potential weak points has been established pen testers will attempt to gain access using a variety of social engineering and hacking techniques to exploit known vulnerabilities and gaps in business proces and security awareness with a simulated attack to ascertain how far they can go

real time

Reporting

Once the test is completed a detailed report including a list of vulnerabilities, evidence and analysis of the findings will be shared. This will help you better understand how these issues could increase your risk of cyberattack and best practice for improving security measures
