Pentesting objectives and what is it?

The penetration test or pentest consists of an offensive security test where a real cyber attack is simulated in a controlled environment.

It is a form of ethical cyber security assessment that seeks to identify, safely exploit and help to remediate vulnerabilities across computer systems, applications and websites. By utilising the same tools and techniques used by cyber adversaries, pen testing replicates the conditions of a genuine attack.

The objective is to find weaknesses that an attacker could potentially exploit to complete threats such as information theft, improper access, cause service failures for the installation of malware, etc.

Network infrastructure testing

Resolve Security rigorously investigates your network to identify and exploit a wide range of security vulnerabilities. This enables us to establish if assets such as data can be compromised, classify the risks posed to your overall cyber security, prioritise vulnerabilities to be addressed, and recommend actions to Resolvegate risks identified.

Wireless testing

Unsecured wireless networks can enable attackers to enter your network and steal valuable data. Wireless penetration testing identifies vulnerabilities, quantifies the damage these could cause and determines how they should be remediated.

Application and API security review

Vulnerabilities contained within software are commonly exploited by cybercriminals and are easily introduced by under-pressure programmers. Resolve Security's ethical hackers conduct automated and manual penetration tests to assess backend application logic and software and API source code.

Remote working assessment

If your organisation is embracing mass remote working for the first time, it's important to ensure that it is doing so securely. Ensure your networks, applications and devices are protected and fully secured with a custom remote working security assessment.

Web application security testing

Web applications play a vital role in business success and are an attractive target for cybercriminals. Resolve Security's ethical hacking services include website and web app penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities including SQL injection and cross-site scripting problems plus flaws in application logic and session management flows.

Social engineering

People continue to be one of the weakest links in an organisation's cyber security. Resolve Security's social engineering pen test service includes a range of email phishing engagements designed to assess the ability of your systems and personnel to detect and respond to a simulated attack exercise.

Mobile security testing

Mobile app usage is on the rise, with more and more companies enabling customers to conveniently access their services via tablets and smartphones. Resolve Security carries out in-depth mobile application assessments based on the latest development frameworks and security testing tools.

Firewall configuration review

Firewall rule sets can quickly become outdated. Resolve Security's penetration testers can detect unsafe configurations and recommend changes to optimise security and throughput.

Common security vulnerabilities

Some vulnerabilities just can't be detected by automated software tools. By identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities that evade automated online scanning assessments, and providing clear help and advice to remediate issues, Resolve Security's ethical hacking and security penetration testing services enable you to understand and significantly reduce your organisation's cyber security risk.

Resolve Security is an award-winning provider of penetration testing services. Our range of CREST penetration testing engagements help organisations to effectively manage cyber security risk by identifying, safely exploiting, and helping to remediate vulnerabilities that could otherwise lead to data and assets being compromised by malicious attackers. All our CREST pen testing engagements are confidential and unlike real cyber-attacks,  are designed to cause no damage or disruption. A Resolve Security pentest will help identify vulnerabilities including:

Insecure configurations

We look for open ports, use of weak password credentials and unsafe user privileges, as well as deep configuration issues that can be exploited to achieve network access.

Flaws in encryption

We check that the encryption methods being used to protect and transmit data are secure enough to prevent tampering and eavesdropping.  

Programming weaknesses

We examine software source code to identify code injection and memory flaws that could lead to the exposure of data. 

Session management flaws

We test whether cookies and tokens used by software applications can be exploited to hijack sessions and escalate privileges.

Frequently asked questions

What is a pen test?

A penetration testing service (or pentest) is a form of ethical cyber security assessment designed to identify and safely exploit vulnerabilities affecting computer networks, systems, applications and websites so that any weaknesses discovered can be addressed in order to Resolvegate the risk of suffering a malicious attack.

What's the difference between a pen test and vulnerability scan?

In some regions, the terms are used interchangeably, or combined into a single offering as VAPT, but it there are important distinctions between the two services. While a vulnerability scan uses only automated tools to search for known vulnerabilities, a penetration test is a more in-depth assessment. Pen testing utilises a combination of machine and human-driven or even physical approaches to identify hidden weaknesses.

Who performs a penetration test?

Pen testing is conducted by Resolve Security's experienced red team of CREST accredited ethical hackers who possess an in-depth understanding of the latest threats and adversarial techniques.

What are the steps involved in a pen test?

CREST penetration testing services use a systematic methodology. In the case of a blackbox external network pentest, once the engagement has been scoped, the pen tester will conduct extensive reconnaissance, scanning and asset mapping in order to identify vulnerabilities for exploitation. Once access to the network has been established, the pen tester will then attempt to move laterally across the network to obtain the higher-level privileges required to compromise additional assets and achieve the objective of the pentesting engagement.

How is a penetration test conducted?

Penetration testing as a service utilises the tools, techniques and procedures used by genuine criminal hackers. Common blackhat pentesting methods include phishing, SQL injection, brute force and deployment of custom malware.

What penetration testing tools are typically used?

Resolve Security's pen testing team don't rely on automated scanning applications. To detect hidden and complex vulnerabilities, they leverage a range of open source and commercial pentesting tools to manually perform tasks such as network and asset discovery, attack surface mapping and exploitation.

How long does a pentest take?

The time it takes an ethical hacker to complete a pentest is dependent upon the scope of the test. Factors affecting pentesting duration include network size, if the test is internal or external facing, whether it involves any physical penetration testing and whether network information and user credentials are shared with Resolve Security prior to the pentesting engagement.

How often should pen testing be carried out?

All businesses are advised to conduct a penetration test at least once a year, as well as after any significant upgrades or modifications to the company network. Given the rapid rate at which new exploits are discovered, Resolve Security recommends that quarterly tests are performed. Regular penetration tests are often required for compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS.

What is penetration testing as a service?

Penetration testing as a service (PTaaS) is a continuous penetration testing approach that combines manual and automated procedures to provide ongoing assessment. Pen testing as a service can be performed alongside an organisation's existing testing programme to ensure fixes are working as intended and security improvements are being made on a continuous basis.

Why is it important to use a CREST pentesting company?

Resolve Security is a member of CREST, an international certification body for information security and penetration testing services. By choosing our CREST pen testing services, you can be sure that all assessments will be carried out to the highest technical and ethical standards. Our CREST certified penetration testers hold a range of cyber security certifications, demonstrating their ability to perform many types of penetration testing. Learn more about the benefits of CREST-accreditation.

What happens after pen testing is completed?

After each engagement, the ethical hacker(s) assigned to the test will produce a custom written report, detailing and assessing the risks of any weaknesses identified plus outlining recommended remedial actions. A comprehensive telephone debrief is conducted following submission of the report.

Can a pentest be performed remotely?

Many types of penetration testing can be performed remotely via a VPN connection, however some forms of assessment, such as internal network pen testing and wireless pentesting, may require an ethical hacker to conduct an assessment on site.

Should I use the same penetration testing supplier?

Working with a single pentesting supplier can have its pitfalls, as over-familiarity with an IT environment can mean that some exposures may be overlooked. Choosing a penetration testing as a service partner like Resolve Security, that invests in offensive security and employs ethical hackers specialising in a wide range of penetration testing types, can help to significantly reduce this risk while offering the added benefit of being a long-term, go-to, partner for support and advice.

Will a pen test affect business operations?

A Resolve Security penetration test is conducted in accordance with the strictest legal, technical ethical standards. Tests are designed to identify and safely exploit vulnerabilities while minimising the risk of disrupting business operations.

How much does a pen test cost?

The cost of a pentest is based on the number of days our ethical hackers need to achieve an agreed objective. To receive a pen test quotation, you will need to complete a pre-evaluation questionnaire, although Resolve Security's experts can help you with this.
