Frequently Asked Questions

What is a penetration test?

A penetration test is an authorized simulated attack on a computer or physical system, performed by penetration testers, to evaluate the security of the system. Penetration testing is often used to complement an organization’s vulnerability management process to ensure security hygiene for better risk management. A penetration test is instructed by an organization on a predefined scope and objective.

Why is penetration testing important?

Penetration testing is an effective way to detect and remediate flaws in your infrastructure before they turn into a serious threat to your business. It can also be used to report regulatory obligations such as PCI, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley or internal policy compliance like CIS controls.

How long does a penetration test take?

The length of a penetration test depends on the scope and size of your organization: a network penetration test can take around 2-3 days, applications that require processing vast amounts of data can take up to 10 days, and larger scale physical assessments can take several weeks.

What is the difference between penetration testing and red teaming?

Penetration testing and red teaming serve different purposes, and are dependent on an organization’s security maturity, and testing goals. Penetration testing takes a more general approach by finding and exploiting as many vulnerabilities as possible, in a given timeframe. Red Teaming is a scenario-based attack simulation that will test an organization’s detection and response capabilities against various attacks like ransomware and phishing attempts to provide actionable recommendations for improvements.

What does CREST certified mean?

CREST is a certification body representing the information security industry. All CREST member companies must undergo a rigorous assessment of their services, processes, and quality to ensure consistency of knowledge against the evolving security backdrop. Outpost24’s SWAT, pen testing as a service for web application security testing, is CREST certified.
