We break in so others can’t.
How good are your defences against an intruder attack? A security penetration test is a controlled and managed simulation of an actual system intrusion. It gives you a realistic experience of an attempted break-in – whether from an outside intruder or from your employee or business partner. During an EurotekNS penetration test, your security mechanisms as well as your intrusion detection and response capabilities are put to the test against a skilled attacker.
Why penetration test?
Penetration testing can be carried to meet a number of goals. From auditing the effectiveness of controls to meet compliance, to red team testing that are designed to measure how well your organization’s defensive and response capabilities will stand up against attacks from a simulated real-life adversary, EurotekNS provides the full spectrum of security penetration testing to meet your goals.
We help you make sure any security gaps we find are closed.
EurotekNS provides a flexible portfolio of security testing services, resulting in reports and recommendations that executive management as well as technicians can all gain the information they need.
Test reports summarise the potential impacts and business consequences of exploitation of any discovered vulnerabilities, whilst cost effective strategies to mitigate risk are presented. For the more technical
audience, carefully crafted examples are used to illustrate how vulnerabilities can be exploited, or reproduced in a test-bed and are provided with detailed remediation instructions.
EurotekNS includes re-tests on found vulnerabilities to ensure that the client’s internal team or primary outsource partner has successfully completed remediation.

Benefits of Penetration Testing:
Plug The Gaps
Spotlight any existing weaknesses in your system configurations and network infrastructure, as well as any bad practices by your staff that could lead to data breaches, malicious infiltration, or worse. Findings help you make informed amendments to your security controls, and provide recommended options to plug these security gaps.
Network availability, 24/7 communications, and customer or user access to the resources you provide are essential to your business operations. Any disruption to this continuity (say, a data breach, or Denial of Service attack) will have a negative impact on your operations and your bottom line. Penetration testing can throw up potential threats to all these areas, and help ensure that your business doesn’t suffer from unanticipated downtime or inaccessibility issues.
Regulatory and legal requirements dictate that a certain level of pen testing is compulsory. For example, the ISO 27001 standard requires all managers and system owners to conduct regular penetration tests and security reviews, using competent testers. PCI DSS also demands penetration testing for relevant systems.
Falling victim to a cyber-assault or data breach is a sure-fire way to lose the confidence and loyalty of your customers, suppliers, and partners – especially if the damage affects them, personally. But being known as an organization that regularly conducts security reviews and penetration testing can effectively reassure all stakeholders that their data, transactions, and your business are all sound.
Enhance Quality Assurance
If your organization deals in software, consumer goods, or other products dependent on a strong IT infrastructure to drive innovation and development, a secure production environment subjected to regular pen testing will enhance your standing in the market, and assure your buyers of a consistent and high standard.
Improve Your Overall Defences
Penetration testing is a powerful weapon in your security arsenal; it’s an ideal training tool for network security personnel, and their automated security systems and software. But it shouldn’t be relied on in isolation. Instead, pen testing should be employed as part of a suite of measures including updates and security patches for operating systems, Web browsers, and office software, user education, security software provision, threat intelligence, and the drafting of strong policies.
