Penetration testing, also known as ethical hacking, is the practice of testing an organization's security defenses by simulating a cyber attack. The goal of penetration testing is to identify vulnerabilities in an organization's systems, applications, and infrastructure, and to provide recommendations for mitigating those vulnerabilities.
At TechForce Cyber, we offer comprehensive penetration testing services designed to help organisations identify and remediate security vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers. Our team of experienced security professionals uses a combination of automated tools and manual testing techniques to thoroughly test an organisation's security defences.
Our penetration testing process includes the following steps:
- Scoping: We work with our clients to define the scope of the penetration testing engagement, including the systems and applications that will be tested, the testing methodology, and any constraints or limitations.
- Reconnaissance: We gather information about the target systems and applications using various techniques, including open-source intelligence (OSINT) gathering and social engineering.
- Vulnerability scanning: We use automated tools to identify vulnerabilities in the target systems and applications, including missing patches, misconfigurations, and weak passwords.
- Exploitation: Once vulnerabilities have been identified, our team uses manual techniques to attempt to exploit those vulnerabilities and gain access to the target systems and applications.
- Reporting: We provide a detailed report that summarises the findings of the penetration testing engagement, including a list of vulnerabilities and recommendations for remediation.
- Remediation: We work with our clients to develop a remediation plan that addresses the vulnerabilities identified during the penetration testing engagement.
We understand that every organisation is unique, and we tailor our penetration testing services to meet the specific needs of each client. Whether you need a one-time penetration testing engagement or ongoing testing to support your compliance requirements, our team can help.
Benefits of a penetration test include
- Identifies vulnerabilities
- Improves security
- Provides insights
- Tests security controls
- Complies with regulations
- Demonstrates due diligence
“For organizations that need to fill the need for leadership but are not in a position to bring in a full-time and often very costly qualified CISO, the virtual CISO — a combination of staff augmentation, consultant, advisor and strategist — might be an option.”
"Mintra worked with TheTechForce to successfully achieve our Cyber Essentials Plus certification.
TheTechForce team were thorough and professional, carefully guiding us through the process and providing excellent support throughout.
Gaining this certification demonstrates to our business and customers that our processes and procedures are in line with the core industry standard security controls.
We would highly recommend TheTechForce to any business looking to efficiently gain CE certification."
