Knowledge-Based Testing
  • Black-Box Testing: Emulates external cyber attacks with no prior knowledge of the system.

  • Gray-Box Testing: Combines external and internal threat scenarios with partial knowledge of the system.

  • White-Box Testing: Offers a thorough security evaluation with full knowledge of internal systems.
Infrastructure Testing
  • Network Penetration Testing: Focuses on securing network infrastructure by examining firewalls, routers, switches, and other components.

  • Web Application Penetration Testing: Assesses the security of web-based applications by testing for vulnerabilities like SQL injection, XSS, and CSRF.
Human Factor Testing
  • Social Engineering Testing: Evaluates susceptibility to human-based attacks, such as phishing and pretexting, through simulated social engineering attacks on employees.
Our Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and Security Testers bring a wealth of experience and credentials in the penetration testing space. They are highly skilled in designing and conducting penetration tests that simulate realistic cyber threats, providing invaluable hands-on experience for your team. With extensive expertise and certifications, our professionals excel in identifying and addressing your organization’s specific risks and vulnerabilities. By guiding your team through each stage of the penetration test, they help uncover security gaps and offer strategic insights to enhance your defenses. Their deep understanding of secure software development practices ensures that your organization is not only prepared for potential cyber incidents but also capable of building and maintaining robust, secure systems.

What is a Penetration Test?

A penetration test, also known as a pen test, is a simulated cyber attack on your computer system, network, or web application to evaluate its security. Conducted by experienced security professionals, this test aims to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in your system before malicious actors can. By simulating real-world attack scenarios, penetration tests provide valuable insights into potential security weaknesses, allowing you to strengthen your defenses and protect your digital assets. The goal is to uncover security gaps, assess the effectiveness of existing security measures, and offer strategic recommendations for enhancing your overall security posture.

Who conducts your penetration tests?

At Security Ideals, we only use US-based certified information security experts for our penetration testing services. We do not outsource any of our penetration testing work, ensuring the highest level of security, professionalism, and compliance with local regulations. Our team’s expertise and commitment to quality guarantee that your organization’s security is in the best hands.

What is the difference between a penetration test and a vulnerability assessment?
A penetration test involves actively exploiting vulnerabilities to understand their impact, simulating real-world attacks to identify security gaps. A vulnerability assessment, on the other hand, identifies and catalogs vulnerabilities without exploiting them. While both are essential for a comprehensive security strategy, penetration tests provide deeper insights into how vulnerabilities can be exploited and the potential damage they can cause.
Why do I need a penetration test?
Penetration tests help identify security gaps before malicious actors can exploit them, ensuring your organization’s systems are robust and secure. They also help comply with industry regulations and improve overall security posture.
What types of penetration tests do you offer?
We offer various types of penetration tests, including black-box, gray-box, white-box, network penetration testing, web application testing, and social engineering testing. Each type focuses on different aspects of your security.
How often should I conduct a penetration test?
It is recommended to conduct penetration tests at least annually or after significant changes to your system, such as software updates, infrastructure changes, or new regulatory requirements.
What is the difference between black-box, gray-box, and white-box testing?
  • Black-Box Testing:Testers have no prior knowledge of the system, simulating an external attack.

  • Gray-Box Testing: Testers have limited knowledge, such as user credentials, blending internal and external threat scenarios.

  • White-Box Testing: Testers have full knowledge of the system, providing a comprehensive security evaluation.
What is network penetration testing?

Network penetration testing focuses on evaluating the security of your network infrastructure, including firewalls, routers, switches, and other components, to prevent unauthorized access.


What is web application penetration testing?
Web application penetration testing assesses the security of your web-based applications, checking for vulnerabilities like SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and cross-site request forgery (CSRF).
What is social engineering testing?
Social engineering testing evaluates your organization’s susceptibility to human-based attacks, such as phishing and pretexting, through simulated social engineering attacks on employees.
How long does a penetration test take?

The duration of a penetration test varies depending on the scope and complexity of the systems being tested. It can range from a few days to several weeks.


What should I expect in the penetration test report?
A penetration test report includes detailed findings of vulnerabilities, the methods used to exploit them, and strategic recommendations for remediation. It provides a clear roadmap to enhance your security posture.
Can penetration testing disrupt my operations?
While penetration tests are designed to be non-disruptive, there is a slight risk of system interruptions. Our team takes extensive precautions to minimize any impact on your operations.
How can I prepare for a penetration test?
To prepare for a penetration test, ensure you have a clear scope of the systems to be tested, provide necessary access and documentation, and communicate with your team about the testing process.
