Identify and eliminate security vulnerabilities with penetration tests

  3. Penetration Tests

Penetration tests are not an end in themselves. They help to identify organizational and technical security vulnerabilities, in order to then eliminate them by means of efficient countermeasures based on recommendations. Organizations that want sustainably to protect their business as well as make secure their business in terms of information security, and consistently reduce risks would be well advised to perform qualified penetration tests of their IT infrastructure, systems, applications, products or networked solutions.

TÜViT has successfully performed hundreds of penetration tests across different industries. The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has certified TÜViT as an IT security service provider for penetration testing.

 

Our methods

Penetration tests can be highly customized to meet the individual needs and requirements of clients. Depending on the respective type of penetration test, for example, the external network access points may be analyzed for security vulnerabilities, including the various web applications. Mobile end devices, data storage media and authentication tokens can also be included, as part of the “lost devices” scenario.

During the performance of penetration tests, our IT security experts follow procedural models from recognized institutions, such as the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). To this end, they use a specially developed test platform, the “Distributed Penetration Platform” (DPP). This allows centralized data storage for penetration tests in complex network environments, for example, as well as the performance of parallel tests to increase efficiency.
