The scope of security threats existing in the modern digitized world is unprecedented. Malicious actors are targeting companies’ systems to make huge money or cause reputational damage to victims. The list of weapons at hackers’ disposal is always expanding and most companies cannot ensure the ultimate security of their employees and clients by relying solely on internal cybersecurity staff and that is why they have to apply for security services provided by external professional vendors. And one of the most effective security testing tools is penetration testing. Pentest performed by a qualified expert can reveal both high-severity and low-severity security vulnerabilities in the systems under test so that companies will be able to take adequate and timely security measures to address the detected flaws before malicious actors try to exploit them.
The systems developed by companies to meet clients’ needs are becoming increasingly complex. The more features developers add, the higher the risk that some important security points might have been overlooked. The specialists responsible for the provision of penetration testing services to businesses imitate the techniques applied by real hackers to estimate whether the systems under test are strong enough to address cyberattacks. As a result, by applying for penetration testing services, companies can realize whether immediate security fixes are required. The cost of a data breach may be many times greater than the price of penetration testing services. And that is why pentest should become an indispensable security testing process for every client-centred entity.
Even companies with strong internal security staff and modern technologies are vulnerable to novel cyberattacks. There are large hacker groups that utilize the power of botnets to carry out powerful cyberattacks. Internal cybersecurity staff cannot be aware of all existing and potential malicious techniques utilized by hackers. Only professional penetration testing specialists have enough expertise to ensure clients’ high resistance to the known malicious techniques utilized by hackers.
When speaking about the financial aspect, it’s much more reasonable for companies to apply for penetration testing services, for example, twice a year rather than to organize permanent courses for internal staff or employ additional security specialists.

There are generally 5 stages of penetration testing followed by Hacken pentesting specialists:
The penetration testing approaches used by Hacken are white box, grey box, and block box. Under the white box approach, a penetration testing specialist has a large volume of information about the systems under test at his disposal as well as accesses. Under the black box method that strongly resembles real cyberattacks, the Hacken pentest expert has only information about the range of external IP-addresses. A penetration testing process, under this approach, starts from the collection of information about the system under test from open sources. The grey box approach to pentesting is the combination of white box and black box approaches.
