Penetration Testing London


Penetration testing London

Hacking no longer concerns just big business. Over half of SMEs have identified breaches in the last 12 months, and Purple Lattice is meeting the demand for a service which identifies and thwarts online security threats.

Penetration testing services from Purple Lattice offer the twin benefits of unrivalled expertise and a commitment to the most comprehensive solutions available; helping to secure the online homes of organisations large and small.

Preventative beats reactive

At Purple Lattice, we believe in the power to prevent. Only by fully understanding the threats and weaknesses which could lead to a security breach can reliable security be achieved. If you are serious about protecting your information systems and data, trust our penetration testing to provide security cover at all levels, thanks to the realistic attack scenarios which we are able to create and customise based on your requirements.

Penetrating testing – how does it work?

We begin each project with a blank canvas, in order to provide a truly tailored approach which allows us to apply the most realistic testing for each client. The penetration testing services which we provide are designed to understand how certain types of malicious attack can be detected, simulate a successful attack, and assess how effective the security measures and controls and the ability of an organisation to respond to an event.

We believe that the best penetration testing services are comprehensive in their nature, and as such, a penetration testing package from Purple Lattice covers a range of areas; from databases, infrastructure, network infrastructure to web and mobile applications that are key to your business.

What are the benefits of penetration testing?

Penetration testing makes sense on a number of levels – from the security and efficiency of your IT infrastructure itself to the many business advantages which you can expect. With our penetration testing services in London, you can benefit from:

– GDPR Compliance

GDPR mandates that organisations protect personal data by design and by default and our service help you by understanding where the security gaps are and how to remediate them. It also provides you with the assurance that you security measures and controls are effective and fit for purpose.

– Risk management

By identifying and proving vulnerabilities in its specific environment, an organisation can bolster their defences in a considered and unrushed manner, and manage risks more effectively. Regular penetration testing or vulnerability assessment allows for a higher level of risk management than would be possible when making reactive updates to an environment, based on breaches which arise.

– A deeper understanding

Penetration testing can provide a clear and in-depth understanding of a cyber security posture. After all, if you don’t know your organisation’s environment, how can you hope to negate hackers who have gained their own understanding? A series of tailored penetration tests conducted by Purple Lattice gives you the opportunity to truly appreciate what is going on in your workplace and identify exactly the type of cyber threats could be of most damage to your business.

– Exposes weak spots

Penetration testing offers you the chance to expose weaknesses which you might not have been aware were there. This can include backdoors into your network which give hackers the opportunity to engage in a number of illicit activities. With vulnerability assessments alone, sometimes these kinds of threats cannot be properly identified.

– Minimise risk for stakeholders

Organisations have a responsibility to every person who you hold personal data for within your cyber environment; be it a customer, business contact or partner. In the wake of GDPR regulations, which took effect in the UK in May 2018, this responsibility has never been greater, and failure to meet GDPR requirements could land companies and individuals with significant fines. Penetration testing allows you to minimise the risk of this information being compromised.

The right penetration testing for your organisation

Our expert penetration testing team are adept at simulating attacks which expose security weaknesses which put your infrastructure and data in jeopardy. There are several different areas which our penetration testing exercises typically focus on.

They include:

– Infrastructure

It is essential to assess your infrastructure on a regular basis so that every vulnerability is identified, attacks have been successfully simulated and flaws addressed. Our expert testers at our IT & Cyber Security consultancy in London will check that your infrastructure is ticking all the boxes in terms of integrity and confidentiality, with every element being as responsive as it should be. From your systems to your networks and network devices, we single out any real-world opportunities which hackers have to gain unauthorised access and in some cases take over your system completely. You can also rely on the Purple Lattice team to provide remediation guidance, once security flaws have been located and attacks have been successfully simulated.

– Applications

Penetration testing can be vital in identifying security problems in web applications. Our expert testers assess your server systems and server-side programs and locate spots where there are insecure development practices hidden in the coding and design of software, before successfully exploiting. We can also assess mobile applications and web service APIs, conducting comprehensive penetration testing. The applications you use can present opportunities to testers to exploit them, and penetration testing from Purple Lattice, which brings together a team with knowledge of secure software development, is the best way to go about ensuring that these opportunities are minimised.

– Social engineering

Social engineering is a problem which has been effective for many decades, with employees being targeted through phishing emails in the increase. Phishing emails are intended to encourage a click through which enables a backdoor to be created by hackers. It is a major threat to business environments and is capable of compromising both company and customer data. Our social engineering services can reveal just how vulnerable your organisation is to these kinds of phishing attacks, by successfully simulating them. We pinpoint weak spots and assess the extent of risk at every level, giving you a clear picture of whether your defences can stand up to social engineering attempts.

– Host-based reviews.

We assess your server, network and device infrastructure to identify the security weaknesses manually and highlight the standards to which your supporting infrastructure is adhering to and its maturity level.
