Cyber attacks are becoming more frequent and more dangerous. If you want to protect your company from their impact, a penetration test is essential.
A penetration test is a simulation of a real cyber attack that reveals security weaknesses in IT systems.
Penetration tests are tailored to your needs. We tailor them to your specific systems and applications to give you the most accurate results.

Penetration testing is a simulation of a cyber-attack that is conducted to uncover weaknesses in IT security. These weaknesses can be exploited by attackers to gain access to sensitive data, such as customer personal data, company know-how, or they can also cause disruptions.
Penetration tests are an important part of an overall cybersecurity strategy. They can help organisations identify and address weaknesses in their security, and thus better defend against cyber threats.
For example, a penetration test may reveal that an organization is using weak passwords that can be easily cracked. It can also reveal that an organization has a security hole in its network that an attacker can exploit to gain access to sensitive data.
Penetration tests are conducted by qualified experts who use the same techniques and tools as the actual attackers. As a result, they are able to detect even the most hidden weaknesses.
The tests are divided into several areas depending on what their objective is.
Penetration testing involves a combination of manual and automated testing, depending on the nature of the systems and applications being tested.
If the tests are performed in a production environment, the level of automated testing and interference with the production system can be minimized so as not to cause unnecessary damage.
During testing we use our own procedures based on OSSTMM, OWASP and PTES methodologies.
During testing we mostly use the Kali linux distribution and its tools: Nmap, Nikto, MetaSploit, Nessus, Hydra, OWASP ZAP, Burp Suite, John the Ripper and others.
The penetration tester looks for vulnerabilities in the platform under test and writes and modifies scripts to exploit them.
Each penetration test is followed by an evaluation phase that describes the course of the test, a description of any vulnerabilities found, and a rating of their severity according to the CVSS classification.
This is the part of the report that is aimed at security managers, engineers and application developers, where each vulnerability is also accompanied by a recommendation on how to prevent or resolve the issue.
At the end of the report, you will find a management report that explains to the company’s management the vulnerabilities and security gaps found, their severity, and ways to fix any problems.
The price of penetration tests usually ranges from 3000 EUR to 7000 EUR, depending on the scope and complexity of the specific project.
For example, a comprehensive penetration test of a medium-sized infrastructure requires 15 MD of tester’s work.
The scope of testing is directly proportional to the number of assets and their complexity (IP addresses, applications, databases, devices, APIs, etc.).
The price of penetration testing also varies depending on the methodology and complexity of the test. The methodologies used have different areas of focus, which consist of sets of tests. Adding or removing specific tests again affects the cost of penetration testing. E.g. OWASP vs OWASP Top 10.
Penetration testing of web applications and most other tests can be performed off-site. However, there are cases where large and complex environments are tested. At this point, an on-site visit to the customer’s site may be necessary. Onsite tests are also required for physical security penetration testing.
You will incur additional costs if you require assistance with remediation and/or require re-testing after repairs have been carried out.
