How Can Penetration Testing Help My Business Avoid Attacks?

What Is a Penetration Test?

A penetration test is an authorized, simulated attack against your company’s IT infrastructure by one of our certified “hackers.” It is intended to identify and exploit vulnerabilities by seeing where a malicious person may access your business and do damage.

The end goal of a penetration test is to improve the overall security of your organization through result-driven insights and recommendations on how you can better protect your business.

Why Penetration Testing Matters

  • Cybercrime has increased by 600 percent since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • The global annual cost of cybercrime is estimated to be $6 trillion per year.
  • On average, a malware attack costs a company over $2.5 million, including the time needed to resolve the attack.
