Penetration testing can help to identify technical vulnerabilities that could leave your organisation open to attack. Once identified, these weak points – which can be within network infrastructure, application, internal processes, or even business logic – can be remediated to strengthen your overall security posture, ultimately helping you to harden your defences against malicious users and provide a heightened level of security.
Ensuring that vulnerabilities that could leave your organisation open to attack are minimised is an essential part of any cyber security strategy - for small, medium-sized and large businesses alike.
A penetration test is performed in a controlled environment utilising means and methods similar to those that a real world unauthorised attacker would use to penetrate an organisation’s IT and communications systems.
Once identified, Context establishes the impact of the vulnerability and provides relevant remediation advice. This enables our clients to understand the implications on the business and to identify opportunities to improve systems, design and development processes, or operational policies and procedures. Penetration testing therefore not only helps to improve security, but can also facilitate a more efficient and effective use of budgetary resources.
After the completion of a test, a detailed report will be provided clearly stating the technical impact and ease of exploitation of the issues found. If required, we can also provide in-depth post-testing support.
Penetration tests should only be carried out by experienced consultants with the necessary technical skill set and qualifications. Context’s consultants leverage state of the art frameworks, strong technical knowledge and bespoke testing tools, and have a proven track record in finding security vulnerabilities in some of the most sophisticated technologies and platforms.
As an NCSC, CHECK and CREST approved organisation, Context is trusted by both multinational blue-chip corporates and UK government bodies to provide penetration testing for web applications, internal and external infrastructures, mobile devices and applications, and wireless networks. We also have one of the largest penetration testing teams in Europe.
