Put your network security to the test

By using all the tools and tricks available to real-world attackers, our network and infrastructure penetration tests uncover weak points in your IT security. The result is an easy-to-understand comprehensive report which explains each discovered threat and even drills down into key remediation advice. Infrastructure testing is often combined with application testing for total threat protection.

Bulletproof your infrastructure security

The threat landscape is always evolving, so your cyber defences should be to. Regular network penetration testing is an easy way to manage your vulnerabilities, ensuring your infrastructure security stays bulletproof. Periodic penetration testing is also a required part of many security standards, such as ISO 27001 and PCI DSS.

The foundation of strong overall security

Along with protecting from direct attacks, our network penetration testing services are the bedrock of a strong risk management strategy. They improve your overall security and help make sure you have total control of your infrastructure. Penetration tests can also be mixed with our other security services to create a complete threat protection package.

Frequently asked questions

What is network penetration testing?

A network penetration test is where a qualified professional takes on the role of a hacker and attempts to gain access to or compromise your infrastructure in some way. Any misconfigurations or vulnerabilities are then reported back to the business so that they can be resolved, and the threats mitigated. The ultimate goal of a penetration test is to help businesses harden their security.

What are the benefits of a network penetration testing?

A network pen test will evaluate the security of your servers and your connectivity. If any weaknesses are found along the chain, you will be alerted to them and will subsequently be able to patch them up or otherwise mitigate them.

What is the difference between a network and an application penetration test?

Network or infrastructure penetration tests analyse the security of your servers or internet facing devices and the protection associated with them. An application test will test the application hosted on these devices.

The network or infrastructure is a means to connect rather than an asset. The application is the service provided to the client. Having strong security where the infrastructure or network is concerned, is ultimately of no consequence if the application is flawed and leaves data vulnerable.

What is the average network penetration cost?

The cost of a network penetration test can vary considerably depending on the set scope and given timeframe. For a rough guide, we have compiled the below:

Network penetration cost
Test type Description Guide price
Small pen test Test of small network and associated cloud infrastructure. Black box, unauthenticated test designed to mimic a real-world attack with no details of the environment disclosed up front. £1,000 - £3,000
Medium pen test Application of a medium web-based management portal and associated cloud infrastructure. Can be unauthenticated or authenticated (usually grey box). £3,000 - £5,000
Large pen test Larger test which can include social engineering offering an extensive security review with limited information disclosed up front. £5,000 - £20,000

What should the scope be for a network penetration test?

The scope is agreed before the test is arranged. It can include as little or as much as you like, though the smaller the scope, the less your defences are actually tested. It is more worth while and ultimately more cost-effective to include the entire surface area of your infrastructure.
