GOOD SECURITY PRACTICE INVOLVES
REGULAR TESTING AND SCANNING OF IT SYSTEMS

Moremicro recognises that businesses need to protect their most vital assets, data, networks, and systems from unauthorised access. By performing regular penetration tests and IT assessments, businesses can reduce risks, and safeguard themselves against common cyber-attacks. We’ve partnered with industry-leading, CREST approved CyberCrowd to provide our clients with the safest and most reliable form of testing and reporting.

PEN TESTING / ETHICAL HACKING

WHAT IS PENETRATION TESTING?

A penetration test (also known as pen testing or ethical hacking) is a process where a cyber security professional performs several tests on a computer system or network for the sole purpose of identifying vulnerabilities, weaknesses and possible threats. For best results, it is best performed by someone who has no knowledge of your infrastructure.

Depending on the level of intrusion and scope of the project, a pen tester uses an exhaustive checklist to identify entry points, risks and vulnerabilities within an organisation. In addition to identifying findings and uncovering flaws, pen testing can also provide clients with measures where they can reduce risks by upgrading their security
