Protect your IT Systems with Penetration Tests!

Our experienced IT security experts help you to protect your web applications, mobile apps and systems from real threats and implement risk mitigation.

What is a Penetration Test?

A penetration test is a procedure to assess the security of applications, networks and infrastructures by methodical and manual validation of the effectiveness of security controls. The process includes an active analysis of the systems with the methods of a real attacker from external or internal sources. All security problems identified are presented to the customer together with an impact assessment, a proposal for risk mitigation or a technical solution.

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!

5 reasons why you should do a proper penetration test:
  • Uncover hidden system vulnerabilities

    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 hacking attempts.

  • Save remediation costs and reduce network downtime

    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 pentests to guide you, it would be necessary to spend more money on a broader range of aspects.

  • Enable compliance with safety regulations

    There's no doubt that pentests 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.

  • Preserve the company's image and customer loyalty

    Security attacks can compromise your sensitive data, resulting in the loss of trusted customers and severe reputational damage. Pentesting can help you avoid costly security breaches that put your company's reputation and your customers' loyalty at stake. In addition, pentesting can grow with time and complexity if the system requires additional scope.

  • Develop efficient security measures and invest in the right business areas

    The summarized results of a pentest are essential for assessing the current security level of your IT systems. They can provide your company's management with insightful information about the identified security vulnerabilities, their timeliness, and their potential impact on system function and performance.

Range of services for IT Security Penetration Testing

Basically, we classify pentests into three types, which can be arranged individually for each project.

Web Pentest
Web Applications

A web pentest focuses exclusively on web technologies. Web applications and APIs have far-reaching permissions that provide a variety of attack vectors and are usually tied to the infrastructure.

Mobile Pentest

Our mobile app pentesters have a background in network and web penetration testing, a quality necessary for pentesting mobile apps, because almost every app communicates with a backend system.

Infrastructure Pentest
Critical Infrastructure

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 and the network infrastructure must not be neglected.

Pentesting Final Report & IT Security Certificate

We have developed a comprehensive reporting format and certificates that provide optimal insight into our work and its results.

Comprehensive Final Report
Pentest Report
  • Our report is prepared according to recognized standards and includes a Management Summary, a vulnerability overview, details on vulnerabilities and remediation steps. The evaluation of the Findings depends on the CVSS 3.0 Standard.
  • The detailed reporting format not only shows which vulnerabilities were identified during the pentest, but also which attack vectors were checked. Thus, you can understand our work in an optimal way.
  • The final report is individually created and delivered as a classic PDF document or in a special HTML format. In the dynamic HTML format, content and vulnerability findings can be filtered, sorted and exported to other formats.
  • We have an effective and comprehensive format for demonstrable safety that can be integrated directly into your website. This certificate proves to third parties such as customers or insurance companies a high security level, data protection and a sensitization for IT security.
  • The certificates issued by us prove a high IT security level at a given time according to a standard or individual test modules. Different test guidelines are selected and evaluated depending on the assessment.
  • Our certificate is issued only to those who achieve a good pentest result or, after a free night test, receive the required level of maturity from our Ethical Hackers.

Frequently Asked Questions

5 FAQs related to pentesting.

  • What is the average cost of a pentest project?

    The answer depends largely on many factors. For simple or less complex networks and software, however, you can expect prices in the range of 4,500 to 6,000 euros.

  • How do I find the right pentest provider?

    Let us answer the following questions for you. What do I need? How do I know who has enough technical expertise? How do I identify unqualified vendors? How do I recognize good reputations? What should the documentation look like?

  • Do I need a pentest or an adversary simulation?

    Any performance is useful in certain situations. It does not make sense to hire a pentest to test an organization's detection and response capabilities. Neither is using Red Teaming to look for vulnerabilities at the complete application level.

  • How are vulnerabilities classified?

    We assess vulnerabilities using the CVSS standard. This metric is an open industry standard for vulnerability assessment of software severity. It is a standard that can be used to uniformly assess the vulnerability of computer systems and the severity of security vulnerabilities.

  • Should I have an external and internal pentest performed?

    Both tests are critical to maintaining a well-secured network and should be performed at least once a year.
