Penetration Testing

If there is a way in, we’ll find it.

Simply understanding real-world information security threats and associated risks within the context of your organization has never been more difficult. Without an accurate understanding of exactly what your security posture looks like it's nearly impossible to know where to spend time and resources and in what order. We live in a world where the attackers are getting more sophisticated at a faster rate than the defenders are. The discovery of new vulnerabilities and ways to exploit them is an everyday occurrence. What was not vulnerable yesterday may be vulnerable today.


Our penetration testing services provide the quickest path to ground when you are trying to understand the real-world risk posed to your infrastructure, applications and users. We use the same techniques and tools that attackers do in order to actually show you what is possible rather than theorizing about it.

Instead of guessing about impact and what "could" happen, we show you what can happen and provide play-by-play details of how and why exploitation occurred. We then provide prioritized tactical and strategic recommendations for how to address the issues discovered. We provide this data in an easily consumable format for multiple audiences including executives, managers and technical staff.

External Penetration Testing

Performed from the perspective of an internet-based attacker. We simulate real-world attacks on your organization by focusing on internet-exposed assets and users.

Internal Penetration Testing

Executed from the inside of your organization's network. These engagements simulate an attack by an agent with internal access to your network such as a rogue employee or contractor.

Wireless Penetration Testing

Performed from the perspective of an attacker who is within wireless range. We evaluate the wireless network's security posture in the context of generally accepted network security "best practices."

Remote Access Penetration Testing

Executed from the perspective of an authenticated external user connected to your organization's network through remote access technologies such as VPN, SSLVPN, Citrix, etc.

Privileged Access Penetration Testing

Performed from the perspective of an authorized entity with some level of access to your environment. Common scenarios include testing with the same level of access as partners and vendors.

Red Team Penetration Testing

Our red team penetration testing service provides rapid, recurring penetration testing from multiple perspectives. This offering is ideal for customers who desire a team to test their security posture on a near-continuous, real-world basis.

We manually validate and verify each and every issue we discover. We will not have your team wasting countless hours sifting through a large report that is only partially accurate.

We have performed thousands of penetration testing engagements for organizations over the past decade. Our constantly evolving methodology and experience-based approach provide results not commonly seen with other assessment firms.

All of our team members have a deep understanding of infrastructure as well as security. When we provide strategic or tactical recommendations, we do so while taking into account the organization and business we are working with. Most importantly we strive to provide maximum positive impact and value to our clients by helping them identify, quantify and mitigate risks.

Our severity rating methodology is based on the context under which the issue was discovered. For example, we don't rate anything "Critical" that we did not exploit. We also pay close attention to the circumstances for a given issue. Was the system available from the internet? How large is the attack surface? The audience? All of these contexts and many more affect how a severity level is applied to a discovered issue.
