Cybersafe Spotlight: Penetration Testing

You may think your environment is secure, but a skilled cybercriminal can find security gaps you missed. Luckily, you don’t have to wait around for threat actors to make their moves. Penetration testing, also known as pen testing, simulates attackers’ exploitive techniques to assess risks to your systems, networks, processes, and personnel. Cybersafe’s Penetration Testing may be just what your business needs to improve its cybersecurity posture. 

What Types of Penetration Tests Does Cybersafe Perform?

Cybersafe Solutions offers a full range of penetration tests to meet customer needs. We also customize the assessments for the highest level of service. 

Vulnerability Scan

The most basic option is a vulnerability scan, which includes a series of automated assessments using commercial scanning tools. These evaluations analyze defined targets for known vulnerabilities.

Red Team Assessment

Our most advanced penetration test is a red team assessment to check your detection and response capabilities. In this evaluation, a team emulates threat actors attempting to gain access to sensitive information while evading detection. Not only can this detect vulnerabilities, but it also tests your effectiveness in a realistic attack scenario.

What Do Cybersafe’s Penetration Tests Show? 

  • Attack Vectors

An attack vector is the path or method threat actors use to enter your environment. Our penetration tests highlight potential attack vectors so that you can anticipate how cybercriminals might move through your systems.

  • Exploitable Vulnerabilities 

Vulnerabilities give attackers potential entry points into your environment. By exposing vulnerabilities in your systems, our penetration tests give you clear direction in shoring up your defenses. 

  • Attack Detection & Response

Since our penetration tests simulate real attacks, they clearly demonstrate your actual detection and response capabilities. Having policies and procedures in place is one thing, but applying them in the real world is often much more complicated. 

Benefits of Cybersafe Penetration Testing

Risk Awareness

Our comprehensive penetration tests give you next-level insight into your organization’s cybersecurity risks. Armed with this valuable information, you can better address weaknesses to minimize vulnerabilities.


Depending on the compliance requirements of your industry, you may need to conduct penetration tests to meet the standards. For instance, SOC 2 and PCI DSS include penetration testing requirements.


Conducting a penetration test provides assurance that your processes, practices, system deployment, and application changes meet your intended security level. Without thorough testing, your security controls are largely guesswork.  


Cybersafe’s penetration tests provide information you can use for budget forecasting and planning security improvements.
