Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing?

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

Periculum Global is an experienced 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.

Benefits 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


How effective is your Cyber Security?

With threats continuing to grow in both volume and sophistication, performing a pen-test to understand how an attacker might breach your business’ defences and the appropriate action needed to address the risk is an important part of effective cyber security.

Insecure network configurations, authentication problems, as well as flaws in application source code and logic, are just three in a long line of underlying vulnerabilities that could be exploited by criminal hackers. With your organisation’s attack surface continuing to grow, keeping out the bad guys is an uphill struggle.

Using real-life adversarial techniques to identify common and complex vulnerabilities, our team at Periculum Global are certified ethical hackers that will help your organisation to clearly understand its weaknesses and develop a strategy to address them.

By identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities that evade automated online assessments, and providing clear help and advice to remediate issues. Periculum Global’s ethical hacking and security penetration testing services enable you to understand and significantly reduce your cyber security risk.

All pen testing engagements are client confidential and unlike a real cyber-attack cause no damage or disruption.


Tests Available

Network testing

Periculum Global rigorously investigates your network to identify and exploit a wide range of security vulnerabilities. This enables us to establish if assets such as data can be compromised, classify the risks posed to your overall cyber security, prioritise vulnerabilities to be addressed, and recommend action to mitigate risks identified.

Web application Security Testing

Websites are essential for conducting business in today’s competitive digital economy. With one in every five pounds spent online, protecting your systems and data, including the personal details of customers, is vital for avoiding brand and reputational damage as well as ensuring compliance with PCI-DSS.

Periculums’s ethical hacking services include website penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities including SQL injection and cross-site scripting problems plus flaws in application logic and session management flows.

Social Engineering

Human behaviour continues to be one of the weakest links in an organisation’s cyber security. Periculum’s customisable pen test service includes a range of vishing and phishing attacks designed to assess detection of spurious phone calls and email messages designed to trick employees into disclosing sensitive information and performing malicious actions.

Wireless testing

Unsecured wireless networks can enable attackers to enter your network and steal valuable data. Wireless penetration testing identifies vulnerabilities, quantifies the damage these could cause and determines how they should be remediated.

Application and API security code review

Security vulnerabilities contained within software are commonly exploited by cyber criminals and are easily introduced by under-pressure programmers that cut corners. Periculum’s ethical hackers conduct automated and manual penetration tests to assess backend application logic and software and API source code.

Mobile security testing

Mobile app usage is on the rise, with more and more companies enabling customers to conveniently access their services via tablets and smartphones. Periculum carries out in-depth mobile application assessments based on the latest development frameworks and security testing tools.

Firewall configuration review

Firewall rule sets can quickly become outdated, which increases information security risk. By attempting to breach your organisation’s firewalls, Periculum’s penetration testers can detect unsafe configurations and recommend changes to optimise security and throughput.

Host configuration review

Host security is a fundamental part of cyber defence. Periculum’s penetration testing services assess whether a host’s operating systems and applications have been appropriately hardened to provide protection against advanced system threats.
