A penetration test (in short “pen test”) is a comprehensive security analysis of one or more IT systems (e.g. shop systems, database servers, Android/iOS apps or the entire company network).
For this, we attempt to penetrate the defined target systems within a controlled scope (e.g. via points of attack determined as part of a vulnerability analysis) in order to estimate the damage of a possible attack. This is done by a manual examination of the target systems by a team of selected experts.
By customising a wide range of factors, such as starting point, scope and information base, this type of test can be attuned perfectly to your threat scenario.
