What is Penetration Testing ?
A penetration test also referred to as a pen test, simulates a cyberattack on your computer system to look for vulnerabilities that could be exploited. Penetration testing is frequently used to supplement a web application firewall in the context of web application security (WAF).
Pen testing can involve attempting to breach any number of application systems (e.g., application protocol interfaces (APIs), frontend/backend servers) in order to discover vulnerabilities, such as unsanitized inputs that are vulnerable to code injection attacks.
Insights provided by the penetration test can be used to fine-tune your WAF security policies and patch detected vulnerabilities.
Ensuring that vulnerabilities that could leave your organization open to attack are minimized is an essential part of any cyber security strategy – for small, medium-sized, and large businesses alike. Once identified, these weak points – which could be in network infrastructure, applications, internal processes, or even business logic – can be remedied to strengthen your overall security posture, ultimately assisting you to harden your defenses against malicious users and provide a higher level of security. Penetration testing not only helps to improve security, but it can also help to make budgetary resources more efficient and effective.
How We Can Assist
Our penetration tests are carried out in a controlled environment, using means and methods similar to those used by an unauthorized attacker in the real world to penetrate an organization's IT and communications systems. Once we identify a vulnerability, we will establish the impact of that vulnerability and provide relevant remediation advice. This allows our clients to understand the implications for their business and identify opportunities to improve systems, design and development processes, or operational policies and procedures.
We can carry out:
Application Security Assessments
Cloud Security Assessments
Internal and External Infrastructure Testing
MDM Configuration Reviews
Mobile Application and Device Security
Red Team and Scenario Based Testing
Product Assurance and Tailored Assurance Services
After the completion of a test, a detailed report will be provided stating the technical impact and ease of exploitation of the issues found. If required, we can also provide in-depth post-testing support.
Penetration tests should only be performed by experienced consultants with the necessary technical skill set and qualifications. ProTechmanize’s consultants leverage state-of-the-art frameworks, strong technical knowledge, and bespoke testing tools, and have a proven track record in finding security vulnerabilities in some of the most sophisticated technologies and platforms.
