Identify weaknesses in your IT systems before hackers do.  In 2018, the network perimeter of 92 percent of companies was breached during external pentesting. In one case, access to internal network resources was possible only with the help of social engineering.

Protect Your Company & Customer Data

Do you know if your security preparations are actually effective in stopping threats? One of the primary tools to validate your security posture is to assess it; using Penetration testing.

46% of businesses identified cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months

Penetration testing is a simulated non-disruptive real-world attack on your IT infrastructure or application that identifies potential vulnerabilities that could be exploited by a hacker

IT governance frameworks suggest performing penetration testing on commissioning of any new part of your IT environment and at regular intervals throughout the calendar year to validate security controls and procedures you already have in place.

Independent Testing to Meet Your Compliance Requirements

Cogenesis focuses on three main penetration testing services:

  1. External Network Penetration Testing
    Focuses on the external facing network to determine potential security weaknesses in the network design that may allow any individual to perform unauthorised activities.
  2. Web Application Vulnerability Testing 
    A series of test to attempt to discover vulnerabilities in the website itself that can be exploited to gain unauthorised access to data or perform unauthorised transactions.
  3. Simulated Email Phishing Test 
    A targeted range of tests focused on assessing your employee’s susceptibility to email borne security threats and is a useful test to validate the success of internal security awareness training.
