Why is penetration testing so important for your security?

Your cyber security is always under threat.

Cybercriminals are relentlessly attacking SMEs across the UK, attempting to steal data, damage digital assets or hold companies to ransom.

  • Rates of cyber attacks and data breaches are increasing
  • Many businesses have no idea they are being targeted
  • You may be dangerously vulnerable to cyber attacks without knowing it

Business leaders are becoming more aware of the risks their businesses face and want to take action. But what more can you do if you’ve got anti-virus software in place and have covered cyber security training?

Cyber penetration testing provides crucial insight into your cyber security flaws, so you can combat threats and avoid disasters. 

Did you know?

60% of SMEs that experience a major cyber security breach
will collapse within six months.

Don’t become one of them!

About the service

How does our cyber penetration testing work?

Our cyber security testing follows a simple three-step process to success

1. Review

An Optimising IT cyber security expert will attend your premises or access your systems remotely if you’re an online platform. We’ll evaluate all of your digital property and identify the endpoints from which a cyber criminal would attempt to access your data. This could include your computer systems, cloud services and employee devices.

2. Penetration testing

Our team will attempt to penetrate your security systems using the most advanced techniques available, working just as a hacker would. We’ll be testing your system’s ability to repel various hacking methods, looking for weaknesses and using state-of-the-art scanning software to seek out vulnerable elements of your IT security.

3. Analysis and reporting

Optimising IT cyber security testing comes complete with a detailed report identifying any hardware or software failures that allowed us to enter your system. We’ll outline vulnerabilities such as configuration problems, technical errors and software flaws that leave your system open to online attackers.
