The increase in cyber-attacks has triggered organisations to evaluate their network security and online defence. An alarming number of organisations fail to recover from cyber-attacks, making penetration testing vital for any business.
What is Penetration testing?
Designed to mimic real life attack scenarios and carried out by Secarma's Certified Ethical Hackers, penetration testing comprises a full-scale assault on your network to test the ability of your systems to withstand hack attacks without damaging or disrupting any of your business processes.
Also referred to as 'ethical hacking', and simply 'pen tests', a penetration test aims to identify entry points that could be exploited by hackers to gain unauthorised access.
Benefits of Penetration Testing
Reduced Risk & Increased Protection
With weaknesses exposed, you're able to proactively protect both your business and clients from data theft.
You're able to avoid the devastating consequences a security breach can have on your company's brand and perception.
Improved Business Continuity
Secure systems are less likely to suffer a breach in availability than less secure ones.
Enhance and maintain your professional relationships with clients, partners and other third parties, building up trust and confidence.
