Defend your business against online threats

White box penetration testing highlights potential vulnerabilities in your IT network, and is critical for developing a robust cyber security strategy.

By simulating real-world cyber attacks on your systems, white box penetration tests give companies a detailed view of their security capabilities. This helps businesses stay abreast of the latest cyber threats and ensure their networks are secure.

The benefits of penetration testing

Identify and fix vulnerabilities in your systems

Hackers look for vulnerabilities to exploit, giving them easy access to your data. Proactively testing your security can help prevent these attacks.

Assess your security posture

Penetration testing can help you understand your risk exposure. Positive tests demonstrate to your customers and shareholders that your business is secure.

Improve your security awareness

Penetration tests can highlight where your employees may be vulnerable to social engineering attacks. Training your staff on online dangers helps keep your data safe.

Validate your security controls

Penetration testing can help you determine how effective your security controls are. Thorough testing identifies areas where more investment may be required.

Benchmark your security against industry best practices

Ensuring your business is compliant with industry regulations is critical. Penetration testing can help you verify that your security measures meet best practices.

Detect and respond to incidents more quickly

Penetration testing highlights likely attack vectors hackers would take to access your systems, so you can better respond and defend your data in a live event.

How white box penetration testing works

White box penetration testing involves sharing full network and system information with the tester, including network maps and credentials.

This helps to save time and reduce the overall cost of an engagement. We meet with your team beforehand to discuss your requirements, including any areas of particular focus and any systems that are out of scope. We conduct testing in a way that minimises disruption to your operations, and we provide you with a full report of our findings with recommendations.

White box penetration tests are useful for testing the security of specific systems

A white box test is best employed to simulate targeted attacks on your systems, using as many attack vectors as possible.

As the tester has complete knowledge of the network and systems design, a white box test offers a high degree of accuracy in identifying vulnerabilities. This allows for a more comprehensive assessment of your security posture and identifying vulnerabilities that may be missed in a black box test.

FAQ

What does penetration testing involve?

Penetration testing is the process of attacking a computer system or network to find security vulnerabilities that a malicious attacker could exploit.

The goal of penetration testing is to identify potential weak spots in the system so that they can be fixed before an actual attack takes place. This involves a penetration tester simulating an attack on the network or computer system from a hacker’s perspective, looking for any vulnerabilities that could be exploite

What are the different types of penetration tests?

Black box penetration testing: Black box testing occurs from an outside perspective, where the tester has no prior knowledge of the network. A black box penetration test is useful for simulating attacks such as phishing and brute force hacking.

White box penetration testing: White box testing is a targeted pen test where the testers have full knowledge of the network layout and system design. This helps save time and identify issues that may be missed in a black box penetration test.

Grey box penetration testing: Grey box testing is a mix of black and white box testing, where the security company has some knowledge of the network but not all.

What is the difference between white box and black box penetration testing?

A black box penetration test is where the tester has no prior knowledge of the network layout or design. A white box penetration test is the opposite; as the tester has complete knowledge of the network, they can identify more potential vulnerabilities than black box testing. Due to having access to more information, white box penetration testing can be concluded more quickly.
