Penetration Testing

Be ahead of the hackers - Comprehensive penetration testing from security experts

Identify vulnerabilities before they're exploited

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:

  • Database security
  • Security of your infrastructure or hosting solution
  • Web and mobile applications
  • VPNs and Wi-Fi networks
  • Embedded devices (IoT)
  • Industrial control systems

What are the advantages of Penetration Testing?

Identify weaknesses

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.

Mitigate attacks

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.

Manage risk

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.

Validate security measures

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.

Optimise investment

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.

Protect your reputation

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.
