Conducting penetration testing is an essential part in keeping your business protected against the latest attacks, in safeguarding your critical assets and ensuring you are as protected as you can be against malicious threat actors.
Designed to mimic a real-life cyber-attack, and carried out by certified ethical hackers, penetration testing comprises a full-scale assault on your network to test the ability of your systems. Also referred to as 'ethical hacking', at its most basic, penetration testing proves how genuine the vulnerabilities in your infrastructure are and determines if a threat actor can get through.
Penetration testing from UKFast assesses:
Call us today and find out how penetration testing can help you to detect vulnerabilities and secure your business, before attackers have time to act.
Through penetration testing, our certified ethical hackers attack your system just like a real cybercriminal would, so you're able to see the weak points in your system that an attacker would target.
Once vulnerabilities have been identified by penetration testing, you can start to strengthen your security and prevent attackers from exploiting these weak points in order to carry out an attack.
Visibility is key. Knowing your network and how robust your security is across your entire infrastructure enables you to identify and manage risks through an effective cybersecurity strategy.
Penetration testing allows you to work out how effective your current security measures are and which areas need more robust protection to mitigate the risk of an attack.
Now you know which security measures are effective and the areas that need protection, you can formulate a clear strategy for investing in the appropriate security services and products.
Penetration testing your infrastructure means you're able to avoid the consequences of a cyber-attack and build trust and confidence with clients and partners.
