Infrastructure Vulnerability & Penetration Testing

Penetration testing to manage vulnerabilities and ensure you don’t fall victim to hackers.

What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration Testing is a methodical process of probing for vulnerabilities in your network and infrastructure. Our Security Team will conduct a simulated Cyber Attack to see if we can breach your defences, providing full reporting and expert advice.

Experienced members of the Cyber Security Team will apply advanced techniques and professional grade security tooling in order to impersonate cyber criminals. This empowers you to find, fix or mitigate issues that leave your organisation vulnerable.

Penetration testing

In its simplest form it is a controlled form of hacking. The Blue Frontier Cyber Security Team will act on your behalf to find and test weaknesses that criminals could exploit, such as:

Update Configuration
Update Configuration
Identify and fix configuration flaws or misconfigurations caused by system or human error.
Assurance Testing

Retrospective assurance testing for known bugs and system errors for fixing prioritising.
Software Upgrades

What is a Vulnerability Assessment?

For Clients that don’t require the full Penetration Test, a vulnerability assessment will find issues via manual and automated testing, and will report on the issues discovered without attempting to actively exploit them. This may be driven by ISO 27001, Annex A.12.6, for your business to proactively identity, fix or mitigate vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure.

In 2020 alone, over 20000 vulnerabilities were identified and publicly reported. This has been ever increasing, showing this trend is unlikely to decrease. In a highly connected digital world, more and more cyber criminals are focusing their attention on exploiting vulnerabilities to exploit your networks.

If you’re thinking, ‘What is the likelihood of my organisation being hit by one of these vulnerabilities?’, analysis by IBM identified scanning for and exploiting vulnerabilities as the leading attack vector in 2020 (35% of attacks), even surpassing popular phishing attacks.

Hackers are continuously scanning the internet to identify weaknesses 24 hours a day, so taking a proactive approach to managing vulnerabilities will help ensure you don’t fall victim – conducting a vulnerability assessment is a vital first step to this.

What we recommend

Reporting allows your IT team to easily and quickly identify weaknesses or holes in your infrastructure that could be a prime target for hackers. We complete reports and recommend ways to remediate and complete these if required.

Vulnerability assessments can be completed on an Annual, Quarterly or Monthly Basis, or we can provide real-time continuous vulnerability management which fits your individual needs, starting from £1295.

Penetration testing is a security exercise where our experts find and exploit vulnerabilities in a computer system to flag and resolve weaknesses, priced from £2500.
