What is penetration testing?

Penetration testing (pentesting) is the process of assessing computer systems, networks and applications to identify and address security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by cybercriminals.

Sysrex is an award-winning provider of cyber security penetration testing services.

Our range of CREST approved ethical hacking engagements enable organisations of all sizes to effectively manage cyber security risk by identifying, ethically exploiting, and helping to remediate vulnerabilities that could lead to network, systems, applications and personnel being compromised by malicious attackers.

Does my organisation need a pen test?

With threats constantly evolving, it’s recommended that every organisation commissions penetration testing at least once a year, but more frequently when:


       • Making significant changes to company infrastructure

       • Launching new products and services

       • Undergoing a business merger or acquisition

       • Preparing for compliance with data security standards

       • Utilising and/or developing custom applications

    Benefits of regular penetration testing

          Regular pen testing helps improve your cyber security by:

          Fixing vulnerabilities before they are exploited by cybercriminals

          Providing independent assurance of security controls

          Improving awareness and understanding of cyber security risks

          Supporting PCI DSS, ISO 27001 and GDPR compliance

          Demonstrating a continuous commitment to security

        Supplying the insight needed to prioritise future investments
