The commonest targets of hacker attacks are the IT systems and data networks of companies. This was the finding of the study performed in 2015 by the German digital industry association Bitkom. In order to detect attacks as early as possible, TÜViT has been offering penetration tests on system and network levels since 1997.

TÜViT is certified by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) as an IT security service provider for penetrationtesting.


Our methods

No matter what kind of information you provide (black/gray/white box approach), when performing the tests we use recognized standards and best practices such as NIST, OSSTMM and the German Federal Office of Information Security (BSI).

The penetration tests are performed as a combination of automated and manual tests, in order to achieve conclusive and high-quality results. This enables our IT security experts to identify specific vulnerabilities on the system and network levels. Thus you can ensure that your information security management system (ISMS) is indeed effective in practice.
