Penetration testing and security reviews you can trust. Conducted by our experienced and ethical hackers.
Why consider Penetration Testing?
Keep your data safe, prevent regulatory fines and avert financial extortion.
Penetration testing (also called 'pen testing' or 'ethical hacking') is a method for testing the security of an IT system by attempting to breach it, using the same tools and techniques that a malicious hacker would use. Think of it as a financial audit, but for your IT system instead of your numbers.
Our 'Red Team' (ethical hackers) examines your IT systems for any weaknesses that may compromise your network's confidentiality, availability, integrity, and associated data.

Frequently asked questions.
Pen testing (also called 'ethical hacking') is a method for testing the security of an IT system by attempting to breach it, using the same tools and techniques that a malicious hacker would use. Think of it as a financial audit, but for your IT system instead of your numbers.
The pen test report will contain an executive summary, a route to exploitation, and a vulnerability overview section detailing any vulnerabilities identified throughout the test.
The length of a pen test is usually defined by how many public IP addresses your business operates from, how many members of staff you have, the size of your internal network and how complex the web application is. Each test is scoped using these factors to determine an accurate length for your business.
Due to the nature of what a pen test entails (attempting to identify and exploit any vulnerabilities), there is a risk of disruption. However, our team of ethical hackers always tries to minimise any potential disruption that may arise from the test.
On request, we offer free retests with our external and web application tests for any critical or high vulnerabilities within 28 days from you receiving the report.
A penetration test plays a vital role in having an effective cyber security strategy. A test will highlight any vulnerabilities or issues that are present across your technical infrastructure, as well as any training required for staff. A penetration test will always be a lot cheaper than actually being a victim of a cyber attack.
