Offensive Security

Our experts review your environment just like a real-world adversary would, going beyond vulnerability scanners to help you find blind spots, enhance your security posture and better prepare.

Meaningful, actionable insights that help improve your cybersecurity posture require more than pass/fail scans – they require resources and time often only available with the help of third-party resources.

Using a combination of automated software tools, proprietary scripts and manual techniques, we test your IT ecosystem for exploitable vulnerabilities that would allow unauthorised access to system components, applications and data. Vulnerabilities never exist in a silo, so we put them into context to highlight the most relevant risks to your business. We focus on positive outcomes and results, so we’ll be clear about what and where your biggest risks are, what is a top priority and what is of least concern.

The importance of Offensive Security

Securing Microsoft 365

Finding vulnerabilities goes beyond an asset inventory. Knowing what attackers can do once they achieve a foothold helps create a plan that enables pragmatic, proactive improvements that mitigate organizational risk.

  • Identify vulnerabilities: Penetration testing will assist your organization discover security weaknesses in IT infrastructure, allowing you to proactively address potential threats before attackers exploit them.
  • Compliance and regulatory requirements: Regular penetration testing is often mandated by industry regulations and standards, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR, ensuring your organization meets legal and ethical obligations.
  • Validate security measures: Our penetration testing evaluates the effectiveness of your existing security controls, policies, and procedures, enabling your organization to adjust and improve your overall security posture.
  • Protect reputation and customer trust: By identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, your organization can prevent security breaches, protecting sensitive data, maintaining customer trust, and preserving your brand reputation.

External Penetration Testing

Attackers have many tricks up their sleeves to determine if your perimeter defenses stand up to attempts to breach.
  • Identify and exploit vulnerabilities on systems, services, and applications exposed to the Internet
  • Network scanning of publicly accessible IP addresses and network services to identify open ports, running services, and potential vulnerabilities.
  • Exploitation and validation of discovered vulnerabilities to gain unauthorized access or perform malicious actions, validating the severity and potential impact of each vulnerability.

Internal Penetration Testing

Simulate a malicious insider or an attacker that has gained access to an end-user system, including escalating privileges.
  • Test internal security controls, firewall rules and more that limit user access.
  • Understand attack paths and how quickly an internal threat could compromise your entire environment.
  • Privilege escalation that simulates an attacker's attempts to escalate privileges by exploiting misconfigurations, weak passwords, or unpatched vulnerabilities, aiming to gain higher-level access to sensitive systems and data.

Web Applicaiton Testing

Assess web or mobile applications for vulnerabilities that can lead to unauthorized access or data exposure.
  • Input validation testing of Web applications which involves examining how user inputs are handled by the application, checking for vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and remote file inclusion (RFI).
  • Authentication and authorization checks to evaluate the application's user access controls, including password policies, account lockouts, and role-based access, aiming to identify weaknesses that may lead to unauthorized access or privilege escalation.
  • Business logic testing focuses on assessing the application's core functionality and processes, identifying potential security flaws or bypass mechanisms in the application's workflow, which could lead to data leakage, unauthorized actions, or other security risks.

Wireless Penetration Testing

Wireless networks are an often-overlooked part of testing. A wireless penetration test focuses on evaluating your wireless network security and how attackers may exploit it.
  • Wireless penetration testing begins with identifying available wireless networks and access points, collecting information about their configurations, signal strength, and security settings.
  • Encryption and authentication testing to assess the security of wireless networks by evaluating encryption protocols (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc.) and authentication mechanisms, attempting to crack encryption keys or bypass authentication to gain unauthorized access.
  • Wireless penetration tests involve detecting rogue or unauthorized access points within your organization's environment, which can pose significant security risks by enabling unauthorized access to internal networks or exposing sensitive data.

Frequently asked questions.

What is a penetration test?

 penetration test is a point-in-time, authorized, simulated attack on a target organization, applying the same tactics, techniques and procedures that a real cybercriminal would use.

What is the objective of a penetration test?

It’s to achieve unauthorized access to critical systems, applications and data.

How does a penetration test differ from a vulnerability scan?

A vulnerability scan will search a system for any known vulnerabilities. A penetration test will attempt to actively exploit weaknesses in a security environment. Although a vulnerability scan can be fully automated, a high-quality penetration test requires the skill of an experienced offensive security expert to be conducted successfully.

How often do I need to conduct a penetration test?

This can vary depending on the size, nature and complexity of the organization and/or the wider market. However, conducting regular penetration tests is essential for maintaining good network security management. It is recommended that an organization carries out a penetration test at least once a year (once or twice is ideal) in order to properly assess how emerging threats or vulnerabilities may be used to exploit your business.
