Identify weak points in your IT setup with our Crest accredited security testing engineers.

UK Penetration Testing

How it Works

Our penetration testing service offers a stringent test of your IT security setup to help identify the key changes you need to make. 

Each penetration test is different. We don’t offer a one size fits all testing service. We start by understanding your industry and specific business needs before setting out the parameters for the test itself. This allows us to customise the testing we conduct to better identify any vulnerabilities while having a minimal impact on the day-to-day running of your business.

Testing by Industry Experts

All our penetration tests are conducted by qualified industry experts certified by leading cyber security bodies. We don’t just offer off-the-shelf automated vulnerability scans. All our penetration assessments are led by experienced penetration testers. This means they utilise their years of experience to probe your business defences and focus their efforts where potential vulnerabilities exist.

Face to Face Debrief

Rather than send you a report on our findings and just leave you to it, all our testing engagements include a face-to-face debrief. This gives you the chance to invite all the relevant stakeholders in your business and speak directly to the team that has carried out your penetration testing. We’ll run through our test findings and discuss the steps you can take to mitigate any significant risks.

FAQs

What is penetration testing?

Penetration testing is a type of ethical hacking. It allows software security engineers to probe your software setup to look for weak points that hackers could exploit, giving you a chance to rectify them before a costly data breach.

Is penetration testing disruptive?

If it’s not planned out properly penetration testing can be disruptive, that’s why our team offers bespoke services that are tailored to your business. We assess your network infrastructure, compliance, and regulatory requirements before testing begins to minimise any impact.

Is penetration testing required by law?

No, it’s not a legal requirement for businesses to carry out penetration testing. 

However, it’s a valuable tool and something the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) recommends conducting on a regular basis to improve your data security.

What are the different types of pentesting methodologies?

There are three main types of methodologies, they are white-box assessment, grey-box assessment, and black-box assessment.

White-box testing looks at the internal structure and working of an application, while black-box testing is focused solely on the functionality of an application. Grey box testing is a combination of both. 

 

By getting a strong understanding of your business before testing starts our penetration testing team can discuss which methodology might work best for you.
