What you get with Carbide Penetration Testing

Our service includes an initial test, a remediation report, a remediation period, and a secondary test for a clean bill of health.

What is penetration testing?

Penetration testing, also known as pen testing, is a process of evaluating the security of your computer systems, networks, and applications by simulating a real-world attack. It involves identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities in your infrastructure to determine how easily an attacker could gain unauthorized access to your systems.

What is a vulnerability scan?

A vulnerability scan is a tool that automatically checks your network, systems, and applications for known vulnerabilities. It helps to identify potential security holes in your infrastructure that could be exploited by attackers. However, it’s important to note that vulnerability scans are not as comprehensive as a full-scale penetration test.

How often should penetration tests be performed?

The frequency of penetration testing depends on several factors, such as the size of your organization, the complexity of your infrastructure, and the level of risk that you’re willing to tolerate. In general, security frameworks like PCI DSS recommend performing penetration testing at least once a year.

What are the types of penetration testing?

There are several types of penetration testing that we offer, depending on your organization’s specific needs. These include network penetration testing, web application penetration testing, wireless penetration testing, social engineering penetration testing, and mobile application penetration testing.

What is the difference between a vulnerability scan and a penetration test?

While vulnerability scans and penetration tests are both used to evaluate the security of your infrastructure, they are fundamentally different. Vulnerability scans use automated tools to identify known vulnerabilities, while penetration tests are performed by skilled professionals who simulate a real-world attack to find potential vulnerabilities that automated tools may not discover.

How much does a penetration test cost?

The cost of a penetration test depends on several factors, such as the scope of the engagement, the complexity of your infrastructure, and the level of expertise required to perform the test.
