Upon completion of the penetration test, the lead tester will present the results in a clear, comprehensive report, typically delivered within five working days after the test is carried out and split into two sections:

Pen Test Executive Summary

  • High-level, non-technical discussion of the overall risk assessment and findings
  • Confirmation of the pen testing plan and methodology
  • An overview of the security risks & business impact of the discovered threats

Technical Penetration Testing Report

  • Description of steps taken during the penetration testing assessment
  • Detailed report & description with evidence of vulnerabilities identified, including their scores within the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) and recommended actions in order of priority.
  • Evidence and proof-of-concept information for target exploitation.
  • Detailed steps on how to remediate any vulnerabilities and a guide on how to prevent future cyber threats.
  • Additional notes such as any penetration testing tools used during the assessment.

Certain compliance packages, such as PCI DSS certification require regular penetration testing to remain compliant, however it is recommended that businesses perform penetration tests at least annually or whenever a significant change is made to the environment.

  • Small apps, networks, cloud systems: 2-3 days
  • Medium apps, networks, cloud systems: 5-10 days
  • Larger apps, networks, cloud systems: 10 days+

All tests are tailored to you so use this as a guide.

Testing can be performed against a non-production replica of your live environment, such as a UAT/QA environment, to ensure no risk to your live services. If testing against production is unavoidable, we can coordinate our testing activities to minimise the impact. You can also specify things like no denial of service (DoS), meaning tests will have a negligible impact on your day-to-day operations.

Black box testing

Black box testing closely simulates real-world hacking in that the tester will know very little, if anything about the target other than what is publicly available. These tests rely solely on the pen tester discovering vulnerabilities in outward facing components and are not designed to pick up vulnerabilities or misconfigurations that may be present internally.

White box testing

White box testers are granted full systems access to gain a detailed understanding of how the application or infrastructure works on various levels. They may even have access to the source code or a detailed map of the internal infrastructure. The tester will probe for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations from an internal perspective as well as attempting to gain access from an external position if this is within the scope of the test.

Grey box testing

Grey box testing is a blend of black and white box and is often the most popular type of test. The pen tester has a limited knowledge of the target, potentially including some documentation, and will often begin the test with basic user level access as a starting point for escalating their privileges during the testing phase.
