The Power of Pen Testing

Penetration testing is the testing of a company’s network security by a dedicated cybersecurity professional. Generally, it involves authorized hacking attempts into a company’s network as the tester attempts to follow the steps a cyber criminal would, simulating how an attack might happen by simulating an actual security event.

These tests are used to identify weaknesses in a company’s cybersecurity posture and to make recommendations on measures to eliminate vulnerabilities and prevent unauthorized hacks.

Does Your Business Need a Pen Test?

Penetration testing is designed to provide the most thorough security assessment possible without actually being attacked by a cyber criminal. Businesses of all sizes are under increasing attack from phishing scams, ransomware, and other evolving threats, so if you haven’t had a thorough security evaluation recently, it’s a good idea to review all your security systems through a pen test.

Still not sure whether you need penetration testing?

Here are some questions that can help:


How prepared would you be if your business suffered a dedicated cyber attack today?


Do your employees know how to recognize phishing attempts and other security best practices?


Is every device used by your employees for work-related tasks sufficiently secure?


If you work in a regulated industry, are you confident that all of your processes, devices, and data storage meet compliance requirements?


Have you had a pen test within the last year, or since your last cybersecurity event?

If you’re not 100% confident in any of these answers, it’s time for a pen test!

Do You Need a Vulnerability Scan or Penetration Testing?

Many times, vulnerability scanning is mistaken for penetration testing, but they are not the same. A vulnerability scan may make up a small part of the penetration test, but it does not comprise the entire event. In fact, vulnerability scans can be performed by anyone with a computer and basic computer skills, while penetration testing is performed by a seasoned cybersecurity professional trained to thoroughly test your systems and detect potential weaknesses.
