Penetration testing – prevention against cyberattacks

Cybersecurity is paramount in today's digital landscape, where the threat of cyberattacks looms large, posing significant economic risks to businesses and organizations. Hence, robust IT systems are essential, along with proactive measures to identify and address security vulnerabilities promptly.

Enter penetration testing, or pen testing, a strategic approach to proactively assess and fortify IT defences. This controlled simulation of attacks helps uncover potential risks and vulnerabilities, enabling pre-emptive mitigation measures. Our collaboration with datenschutz nord GmbH, experts in penetration testing, ensures comprehensive support tailored to your needs.

Black box, grey box, or white box testing: There are different types of pen tests

Pen tests come in various forms – each with distinct methodologies and advantages.

Black box testing mimics real attack scenarios by starting with minimal information, while white box testing offers efficiency by providing comprehensive insights upfront, albeit risking tester bias. Grey box testing strikes a balance, combining elements of both approaches for thorough yet objective assessments.

Objects to be examined in a pen test

The testing scope depends primarily on the objective of the test. Usually, a pen test is directed towards external systems, internal networks, web applications or APIs as well as smartphone apps. Our testing approach is tailored to the specific testing objects and adheres to established industry standards, such as the "Praxis-Leitfaden für IS-Penetrationstests" by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) or the “OWASP Web Security Testing Guide”, coupled with over 15 years of expertise.

Let us safeguard your digital infrastructure effectively, leveraging the right penetration testing strategy to mitigate cyber threats proactively.
