Penetration Testing

Understanding the vulnerabilities you face allows you to focus your efforts.

What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing is a security oriented test to evaluate the security of a system and how it could be broken into. Penetration testing is the most effective way of demonstrating how attackers identify weaknesses and vulnerabilities in a system or network as well as how these vulnerabilities could be leveraged to gain further access to a network.

Edge Cyber Security has a large team of certified penetration testers who specialise in penetration testing. The Edge Cyber Security penetration testing team is diverse and contains a wealth of experience in security, networking and software development.

How does Edge Cyber Security undertake Penetration Testing?

All penetration testing undertaken by Edge Cyber Security is performed by certified penetration testers who follow the same tried and tested methodologies used by both the private sector and public sector which are considered some of the best methodologies available. Penetration testing is a manual process which will always have a minimum of one dedicated penetration tester working on the test attempting to find and exploit vulnerabilities on the device or network.

An extensive report on the security posture of the devices tested is provided. The reports are split into three sections to be used by different teams within the organisation. The first part of the report is aimed at executives, this part of the report gives an overview of the results found in non-technical language which is understandable to non-IT or security personnel.

Why should you undertake Penetration Testing?

Security breaches of any size can result in financial loss, threaten an organisation’s reputation, erode customer loyalties, attract negative press or threaten large deals and acquisitions.

Penetration testing tells a company what issues they currently have in a system or network and how an attacker may exploit the system to gain unauthorised access. Penetration testing allows companies to determine what risk vulnerabilities exist on the network and what threat these pose to the company. By resolving and remediating the issues identified by a penetration test, a company can greatly reduce the risk of a security breach.
