Imagine that you are standing by a river and you know that there is a lot of gold hidden in the vast amounts of sand and gravel. But to find it all seems almost impossible. You would need the right tools, the know-how and the experience. This is also the case with our penetration tests. Our cyber security experts systematically analyze your IT infrastructure, applications, cloud and IoT components for security gaps and vulnerabilities. We rarely find gold, but we do find all the vulnerabilities in your systems that hackers would turn into gold.
Penetration tests, also known as pentests, reveal vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers. Suitable means and methods are used for this purpose. Whether unauthorized intrusion into systems, manipulation of data, or insecure applications – a pentest reveals security shortcomings. Where and what the risks are will be documented in a final report.
Every company has a unique IT infrastructure and different applications. Accordingly, it needs specifically designed security testing. Our penetration testers are proficient in the most advanced hacking methods, which are also used by cyber criminals. We love the challenge in the cyber security field and systematically analyze everything that is networked: be it an application, cloud, control or production system (ICS: SCADA/DCS), security system, IoT device, aircraft, power plant or train.
After the pentest service, you will receive a comprehensive final report. This contains a target group-specific list of the detected weak points, including a risk assessment. It also contains customized suggestions for measures to be taken. By implementing these measures, you can optimally protect your systems against hacker attacks and significantly increase your cyber resilience.
The following techniques are used in penetration testing:
High quality is ensured in penetration testing projects through proven and standardized procedures and with additional optional modules:
After completion of the test activities, you will receive a detailed, customized final report containing, among other things, the following information:
During a final meeting including a presentation, the results are explained, and the recommended measures are discussed in detail.

A penetration test is important to verify the security of applications, IT systems, networks and much By simulating attack scenarios, potential vulnerabilities and security weaknesses are identified before they can be exploited by malicious hackers. This enables companies to implement targeted security measures, improve their cyber resilience and minimize risks.
A penetration test usually involves several steps. After defining the system that is to be tested and after the project kick-off, the first step is a comprehensive analysis of the infrastructure to be tested to identify potential points of attack. Then, various techniques and tools are used to find vulnerabilities. The results are documented and summarized in a report. The final report contains the identified vulnerabilities, their risk assessments, and the recommendations for measures to be taken.
The frequency of penetration testing depends on various factors, such as the type of infrastructure, the size of the company and the changing overall threat landscape. Generally, it is recommended to perform penetration tests on a regular basis to identify new vulnerabilities and ensure that security measures have been implemented effectively. It is recommended to perform a pentest of critical systems at least once a year or when there are significant changes in the infrastructure.
Simply put, a penetration test is the finding of weaknesses and red teaming is the exploitation of weaknesses. In addition, penetration tests are usually limited to technical vulnerabilities, whereas red teaming also involves organizational vulnerabilities.
