Penetration testing

Identifying system vulnerabilities to protect your data and financial records.


The cyber security landscape is constantly evolving. Organisations are continually looking to develop more intelligent data-intensive solutions and cyber-attacks are becoming more and more sophisticated - making penetration testing vital in order to identify system vulnerabilities and protect your data and financial assets.

What are the benefits of Penetration Testing?

Minimise risk

The ultimate goal of pen testing is to identify vulnerabilities so attacks can be prevented from taking place. Regular pen testing ensures you’re well prepared to address increasingly complex cyber security threats.

Protect your stakeholders

Pen testing helps you to protect the personal data of your stakeholders more effectively. It also shows that you’re implementing measures to prevent cyber-attacks, which builds trust between all parties and improves your reputation.

Identify hidden vulnerabilities

Cyber-attacks exploit the weak areas of your system and are often very difficult to identify. Pen testing identifies vulnerabilities that would often remain hidden, allowing you to carry out necessary fixes in order to prevent future breaches.

Who delivers our Penetration Testing?

Pen testing services are delivered by award winning cyber security specialists, Nettitude, a member of the Lloyd’s Register group.

Nettitude are one of the few organisations worldwide with CREST approval and their team of experienced consultants hold the very highest of security accreditations.

What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing, commonly referred to as pen testing, involves a simulated real-world attack on an organisation's networks or web applications. The aim of the test is to identify infrastructure vulnerabilities and provide effective recommendations to resolve the issues and minimise the risk of cyber-attack.

A wide range of detailed pen testing services are available, including mobile, firewall, Internet of Things (IOT) and web application testing – all of which are designed to scrutinise your internal or external processes and infrastructure.

An internal penetration test aims to identify threats that originate from within an organisation's systems and firewalls, examples of which include wrongdoing or human error. Several methods can be adopted to identify internal vulnerabilities, including social engineering tests and ransomware.

An external penetration test aims to expose vulnerabilities that are accessible from the public domain. Essentially, this method mimics an external attacker that would characteristically gain access to systems through your email addresses, DNS or website.
