What We Do.

Network security can be tricky. On the one hand the number of risks are skyrocketing, and on the other hand users want more freedom than ever before.

That’s where we come in. Our specialists and support team help you cut through the complexity to offer flexibility, whilst staying ahead of the threats.

Penetration Testing

Ignorance is not always bliss.

Cyber-criminals look for holes in your system – so we want to find them before they do. In the madness of the daily grind, it’s often easy to presume that your current IT security technologies are doing their job, all the while unaware of the hidden gaps & back doors that are leaving you and your company exposed. Find out about our Network Penetration Testing to stay ahead of the game.

A must-do for every business

Regular Penetration Testing is more important then ever before. It alerts you to vulnerabilities in your network & provides a clear plan of action to allow you to 'plug the holes' before someone more sinister finds them.

WHAT IS PENETRATION TESTING?

How effective are your current security systems against a real-world, targeted attack? We put it to the test by simulating real world attack patterns used by cyber criminals to identify any weaknesses & expose just how far any exploitation could go. Otherwise known as ‘Authorised Hacking’.

Even with the most advanced cyber-security protection technologies in place, it’s the unseen, ‘blind-spot’ vulnerabilities that can pull the rug from under you.

With a penetration test, you can safely see just how far a real world attacker can actually get with your current IT security systems & address any holes before it’s too late.

Typical issues detected in a penetration test are:

  • Ports opened
  • Vulnerability of systems to known exploits
  • Misconfigured devices
  • Devices left with default settings
  • Unpatched systems
  • Use of weak passwords
  • Use of weak encryption
  • Use of weak authentication mechanism
  • Ability of systems to respond, react and alert on threats
  • Users exposure to social engineering
  • Adequacy of internal company processes (i.e. no user exit processes, no minimum password complexity)

 

“I'M CONFIDENT IN OUR CURRENT IT SECURITY SOLUTIONS – DO WE STILL NEED A PENETRATION TEST?”


Absolutely. Even the smartest technologies fall prey to the continually-evolving nature of cybercrime & the growing intelligence of attacks. Often the gaps and vulnerabilities occur due to factors like a simple misconfiguration of systems or staff unwittingly exposing you to attack with the click of a link.

This is one time when it really pays to have the experts identify any ‘blind-spots’ to keep you protected.

Knowing exactly how vulnerable your ICT systems are can be tricky. Penetration testing is an external security check where an impartial third party tests the strength and integrity of your security for all your web exposed elements. Every 12-24 months it really pays to have the experts identify any ‘blind-spots’ to keep you protected.
