What is a penetration test?

Penetration Testing, or “Pen Testing”, is a series of processes that a contracted “White Hat Hacker” (the good guys) attempts to break into a system or network.


Special tools are used to hunt for and exploit a business’s technical and non-technical vulnerabilities.

Special skills are needed to properly use these tools and do so without being discovered. 


Once found and exploited, all vulnerabilities are reported to the business with mitigation steps either recommended or implemented, depending on the customer’s needs.

How much does penetration testing cost?

What kinds of businesses need pen testing?

If your business stores customer and employee information, uses point of sale (POS) systems, uses cloud or local networking, stores intellectual property, has multiple locations connected in your network, is concerned about external or internal threats, is governed by federal regulations, your business needs a pen test conducted.

Aren't hackers really targeting big business?

No. Almost half of all cyber attacks target small businesses. But that only accounts for external threats. Your staff should be trained to protect your business too. And your systems may be vulnerable to insider threats as well.
