Advantio’s penetration tests push your systems to their limits and expose vulnerabilities and weakness allowing you to remediate the risk before hackers exploit them.

What is a penetration test?

A penetration test simulates the actions of a hacker aiming to breach your organization’s security. Penetration tests are an important part of a security team’s threat and vulnerability management capability and give organizations and their leadership teams a clear picture of how much their business is at risk. The outputs from these tests help to:

• To provide input to the development of security and risk management improvement programs.

• To validate the efficacy of security controls and capabilities.

• Form part of ongoing threat and vulnerability management activities.

Penetration tests encompass a range of activities and outcomes. Clients using penetration tests typically focus on external and internal network tests, as well as external and critical internal web-based applications. Tests against wireless networks have become more common, sometimes to meet regulatory requirements like PCI DSS, as well as physical tests, depending on the organizations’ vertical (e.g., utilities, retail). Tests that specifically address phishing and social engineering are also increasingly common and help to test the resilience of some of the most common attack vectors.
