Benefits or Pen Test

Reducing risk to the business A penetration test will show the vulnerabilities in the targeted systems and the risks to the business. Based on an approved approach each of the risks is then evaluated. This forms the basis for a detailed report classifying the risks as either High-Medium-Low. The categorization of the risk will allow you to tackle the highest risks first, maximising your resources and rapidly reducing the impact of the risk to the business.

Evaluate your IT security investment A snapshot of the current security posture and an opportunity to identify potential breach points. The penetration test will provide you with an independent view of the effectiveness of your existing security processes in place, ensuring that patching and configuration management practices have been followed correctly. This is an ideal opportunity to review the efficiency of the current security investment. What is working, what is not working and what needs to be improved.

Protects clients, partners and third parties Increases clients, partners and third parties confidence in the knowledge that you are taking a professional approach by taking the necessary measures to maintain the security of your environment. This will lead to maintaining existing business, attracting additional and new business and subsequently increase revenue and profit.
