Penetration Testing

Penetration tests (otherwise known as “pentests”) give organizations the opportunity to discover vulnerabilities in their networks and systems and properly mitigate them. Internal IT staff can do a fantastic job of managing your day-to-day IT needs and even managing your cybersecurity. Nevertheless, it’s easy to become comfortable within systems you manage daily. This, coupled with an ever-changing threat landscape, makes it incredibly valuable to engage an outside expert to test your network and find potential weaknesses.

Some organizations are required to perform routine pentests in order to maintain certifications and accreditations. Others choose to perform them as a best practice. Regardless of your reason, we’re excited for the opportunity to discuss your next pentest.

An ITSecureNow Pentest

Whether this is your first pentest or just your most recent one, our team will systematically walk you through each step of the process — from scoping to a post-mitigation report and presentation.

When you engage ITSecureNow to conduct a penetration test, you’ll be working with testers who are actual white-hat hackers and whose expertise is in finding loopholes in systems and keeping up-to-date on the latest cybercrime strategies. You’ll also engage a team committed to a deep understanding of your organization’s particular needs, goals, and technical environment, because each pen test is unique.

At the end of your first round of penetration testing, you’ll receive a detailed report describing how the test was conducted, a list of discovered vulnerabilities ranked by level of risk, and recommended mitigations for each vulnerability discovered.

Afterwards, you’ll have time to apply mitigations to the vulnerabilities discovered, all while having access to our team to ask questions. When mitigations are complete, ITSN will complete a final round of penetration testing and provide documentation as to whether or not the initially discovered vulnerabilities are still present.
