So-called "automated penetration tests" are not accurate penetration tests but merely vulnerability scans with a misleading name. With our penetration tests, you achieve a comprehensive picture of how you are positioned in the face of real attacks. In addition to technical information on vulnerabilities and their remediation, we also highlight the specific threats to your operational business and provide strategic recommendations for measures to improve your security level sustainably.
Why does your company need a penetration test from secion?
We have a highly experienced team of experts.
Our penetration testers perform more than 100 pentests per year and look back on more than 50 years of pentesting experience. Through meaningful certifications (e.g., OSCP, OSCE, OSWE), regular training, and internal research, we ensure an excellent level of competence of our pentesters and continuously expand it. We base our test procedures on established standards and security research projects (e.g., PTES, OWASP) and constantly adapt them to IT security research's latest developments.
The above-average quality standard of our result reports
The quality and scope of our audit results reports far exceed industry standards. This gives you a comprehensive picture of how you are positioned in the face of real attacks. In addition to technical information on existing vulnerabilities and their remediation, we also show you the specific threats to your operational business and provide strategic recommendations for measures to improve your security level sustainably.
Clear and easy-to-understand recommendations for action
Our pentesters assign the findings to different vulnerability categories and analyze their distribution, allowing conclusions to be drawn about their origin. Based on all the information, our experts formulate easy-to-understand, prioritized recommendations for action that can be implemented immediately. This ensures optimum knowledge transfer to our customers - intending to prevent the recurrence of similar vulnerabilities permanently.Read the whitepaper now!
The three phases of a penetration test
Step 1: Information collection
Research publicly available sources for DNS names, RIPE records, blacklist records, metadata analysis, and contact information.
Determine the external image of the company from the attacker's perspective.
Step 2: Initial identification of security vulnerabilities
Identify vulnerabilities through automated scanning.
Further identification of IT security vulnerabilities via reachable services, open ports, reachable applications, known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations.
Step 3: Vulnerability analysis
Verification by the pentester whether the vulnerabilities are exploitable (exploits) and with what effort.
Risk assessment of the potential damage.
We commissioned secion's cybersecurity experts to conduct a penetration test. Among other things, they checked provided services accessible via the external IP addresses at the time of the tests. By implementing their recommendations to eliminate the identified IT vulnerabilities, we could significantly increase our security level.
That's why you should commission us with a penetration test now!
Our audits' results include the technical documentation of vulnerabilities and remediation measures and go well beyond industry standards in the scope of the report.
Based on all the information, we also formulate strategic recommendations for preventing the recurrence of similar vulnerabilities permanently.
To provide you with a vivid picture of your security level, our Management Summary:
- An analysis of the damage potential, which shows the substantial impact on your business operations.
- An analysis of the probability of attack, in which we include our knowledge and experience of potential perpetrator groups. In addition to the results report, we also provide you with all findings in the form of an action plan table, making it much easier to coordinate and track remediation measures.
