One of the most effective defences against cyber threats
Black box penetration testing gives you a detailed view of your business’ security capabilities.
By simulating real-world attacks, penetration tests highlight vulnerabilities in your network in a secure environment. This means you take any necessary action to protect your business before vulnerabilities are exploited by malicious actors.
Our black box penetration testing service has helped businesses of all sizes better protect their data.
AAG has been our trusted IT Service provider for many years. They are very prompt, consistent and reliable and I would highly recommend their service.
We guide you through the entire process
Our priority is to secure your business against online threats.
Before testing takes place, we meet with your team to scope the engagement. This involves defining particular focus areas and excluding systems that you do not wish to be tested. Once the scope is agreed upon and all parties are aware of the requirements, key points of contact are designated, and the penetration test will begin.
We keep you updated throughout the test, and once concluded, provide a full report with any recommendations.

What are the different types of penetration tests?
White box penetration testing: A white box penetration test gives the tester complete information about the system under test. This shortens the engagement time, as the tester can perform targeted attacks that stress-test the security of specific systems.
Black box penetration testing: Black box testing occurs when the tester is given no information about the network and systems being tested. The focus in this instance is on emulating the actions of a real-world attacker to identify any vulnerabilities that could be exploited.
Grey box penetration testing: A grey box penetration test is where the tester is given some information about the system or network, such as IP addresses or some credentials. This ensures the engagement can be concluded as quickly as possible while largely maintaining the simulation of a real-world attack.
How often should penetration testing take place?
Security testing should take place regularly to ensure the network is best protected. Furthermore, any new systems or infrastructure should be tested to ensure it is secure and does not compromise the network.
How long does a black box test take?
There is no defined length of time a black box penetration test takes due to factors such as the scope of the engagement and the size and complexity of the network. The tester will need time to identify potential vulnerabilities and then attempt to exploit them. Once the test is concluded, it will take some time to create a full report with the findings.
