Slash your risk, up your protection

Website plug-ins or other fancy enhancements might satisfy your end-user requirements, but they can also enhances your exposure to vulnerabilities.

Do I need a pen-test for my sites or servers? (Show Answer)
Prevention is better than cure. In that context, a penetration test actively identifies weaknesses in your online security, and provides the reporting and assistance to eliminate those vulnerabilities. A penetration test can also be used to fuel compliance with regulatory auditing requirements, enhance technical controls, and deliver overall confidence in your hosting security.
Will a penetration test damage my sites or servers? (Show Answer)
No. The difference between penetration testing and “black hat” hacking attempts is that penetration testing is controlled and therefore pose no threats to your sites or servers. Another term for penetration testing is “ethical hacking”, of which the aim is simply to improve the security of the target website.
Will my sites and servers be 100% safe after penetration testing? (Show Answer)
You wouldn't leave the doors to your house unlocked, so why do the same with your website. Although nothing on the internet is 100% impenetrable, by adding penetration testing to your security armour, you significantly reduce the risk.
