Pentests Protect Your IT Systems!

If attackers manage to penetrate your systems, this can mean the loss of data and trust. Our experienced IT security experts help you with a pentest to protect your web applications, mobile apps and systems from real threats and implement risk mitigation.

Definition and Explanation

What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing or pentesting for short are simulated attacks from external or internal sources to determine the security of web applications, apps, networks and infrastructures and uncover any vulnerabilities. By methodically and manually validating the effectiveness of security controls, we identify points of attack in your systems so they can be remediated early. Any security issues identified are presented to you along with an impact assessment, risk mitigation proposal or technical solution.

Manual Execution on Site or Remotely

Penetration Tests from turingpoint are Handmade!

Automated vulnerability scanners cannot replace full penetration tests. It would be negligent to believe that a vulnerability scan provides a good level of security or protection against a real attacker! We offer remote or on-site during the execution.

5 Reasons Why you should Perform Pentesting

The surest way to measure your security level is to examine how it can be hacked. A pentest offers the possibility to test your system's resistance (Cyber Resilience) against external and internal hacking attempts. To the article

While it may sound counterintuitive, spending money on pentests will actually save your organization a significant amount of money. Pentests highlight the areas of greatest vulnerability, which will inform you where to spend your IT security budget most effectively. Without penetration testing to guide you, it would be necessary to spend more money on a wider range of aspects. BSI Situation Report

Effective Solution for High IT Security

The Pentest

Benefit from many years of experience! Pentests are planned, executed and evaluated by our specially trained cyber security engineers according to recognized IT security standards.

Reasons for a Pen Test

That's why you Should Perform a Pen Test with turingpoint!

Our experienced IT security consultants uncover vulnerabilities before a real hacker can exploit them. Reduce remediation costs, network downtime and preserve your company's image with the accompanying customer loyalty. Pen tests enable compliance with security regulations defined, for example, within the framework of IT-Grundschutz in an Information Security Management System (ISMS). There are several variables involved in our pricing.

Extensive Reporting Format + Free One-time Retest
Our report is prepared according to recognized standards and contains, among other things, a management summary, a vulnerability overview, details of the vulnerability, and remediation steps. The assessment of the findings is based on the CVSS 3.0 standard. The one-time retest is free of charge with us.
Certification as Proof for Your Customers
Use our comprehensive security certificate to prove to customers the high security level of your applications and infrastructures. Successful accreditation is preceded by a cloud assessment or pen test.
Implementation According to Recognized Standards
We offer the following test standards: OWASP, OSSTMM, BSI, PCIDSS, NIST und PTES. Depending on the information base, we perform white, grey or black box tests. We usually recommend the grey box method.

Process Steps of a Successful Penetration Test

Penetration Test Procedure

The pentest we perform is an agile process and is carried out in close consultation with the customer.


    During a joint kick-off meeting, the framework conditions to be tested are specified, necessary user accounts and access paths are coordinated, contact persons and escalation paths are defined, and the pentest is planned together in detail.

    Manual & Automated Research

    Our security engineers try to gather as much information as possible. Based on this information, analysis strategies are developed to identify possible attack vectors. These attack vectors are then examined for vulnerabilities in extensive tests.

    Manual Exploitation

    Here, an attempt is made to exploit the identified vulnerabilities to gain access to the target systems. In the process, our pentester writes new exploits or uses existing ones, depending on the service or technical environment in question. Potential vulnerabilities can turn out to be false positives here. Only verified vulnerabilities are included in the final report and classified according to their criticality according to CVSS 3.0.


    We have developed a comprehensive report format that provides optimal insight into our work and its results. This consists of a business risk analysis, management summary and a comprehensive test and vulnerability description. The criticality of the vulnerabilities and recommendations for action are described in detail therein.

    Final interview & Certification (optional)

    In the final meeting, all critical points in the results report are discussed and all questions are clarified. Finally, we are happy to present you with a certificate as proof for your customers.

    Remediation (Optional)

    When the analysis is complete, then the remediation of the identified vulnerabilities takes place on your part. Our evaluations provide you with detailed recommendations about the vulnerability in question. If needed, our security engineers can provide extensive remediation assistance.

    Free review (Optional)

    We are happy to review the security weaknesses again to ensure that the defense mechanisms have been implemented correctly. It is important to us that our recommendations are implemented, which is why this process activity is always free of charge.
