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.
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.
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!
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.
While it may sound counterintuitive, spending money on pentests will actually save your company a significant amount of money. Pentests highlight the areas of greatest vulnerability, which informs you where to most effectively spend your IT security budget. Without penetration tests to guide you, it would be necessary to spend more money on a broader range of aspects.
There's no doubt that penetration tests play a critical role in protecting your business and its valuable assets from potential intruders. However, the benefits of pentesting go far beyond network and data security. Source from Statista
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.
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.
We offer all services in various complexities and recognized standards.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Basically, we classify IT security penetration tests into three types, which, however, can also be compiled individually for each project.
A web pentest focuses exclusively on web technologies. Web applications and APIs have wide-ranging permissions that offer a variety of attack vectors and are mostly tied to the infrastructure.
Our mobile app pentesters have a background in network and web pentesting, a quality necessary for mobile app pentesting because almost every app communicates with a backend system.
The pentest for critical IT infrastructures (KRITIS) tests the security of e.g. server systems, VPN systems, WLAN networks and firewalls. As a basis for secure applications, the system as well as the network infrastructure must not be neglected.
We offer comprehensive vulnerability management for customers, partners, penetration testers and IT security consultants. Use our software products to also get the best technologies and reporting tools on the market.
With our comprehensive and intuitive platform, you can now map the entire security process of your applications. To the penetration testing platform
We have developed an effective and comprehensive format for verifiable security that can be integrated directly into your website. This certificate proves to third parties such as customers or insurance companies a high level of security, data protection and IT security awareness.
The certificates we issue prove a high level of IT security at a given time according to a standard or individual test modules. Depending on the assessment, different test guidelines are chosen and evaluated.
