Our penetration testers work from both an external and internal perspective; At completion of our testing we provide you with a detailed report, which includes recommended actions for improving your security measures. Sometimes referred to as “ethical hacking”, penetration testing is an active evaluation of an organisation’s information security measures.
A penetration test can significantly help safeguard against many network security threats, including financial compromise, damage to reputation, business risk exposure, unwanted legal issues and loss of internet presence.
With the advent of sophisticated, automated exploitation tools and “point-and-click” hacking, anyone with a network connection (internet, corporate, internal) is potentially vulnerable. However, there are effective steps that can be taken to anticipate and mitigate the risks for organisations both large and small.
We run these tests to identify and assess potential threats to software applications, including bespoke or proprietary systems.
Penetration testing and application security assessments are as we all know essentially technical audits, providing assurance that security vulnerabilities and flaws are mitigated and the likelihood of becoming hacked is significantly reduced.

Our penetration testing team’s approach addresses wide-ranging needs for our clients and we offer an in-depth, comprehensive penetration testing service that tests systems from an external or internal perspective.
- External penetration testing usually takes place across the Internet to simulate the view of your systems through the eyes of (and in a similar environment) to a potential attacker.
- Internal penetration testing involves attending your site and connecting to your internal network on the appropriate network segment thus seeing services and resources from behind the external perimeter perspective to identify other vulnerabilities.
7Safe’s testing is designed to ensure that your systems are operating as expected and that there are no hidden or undiscovered security related issues.
The testing process is a detailed, thorough and extensive process involving the following stages:
- Scoping – Assessing the appropriate targets for penetration testing
- Discovery – Building information about your network & its services
- Vulnerability Scanning – Testing systems & services for known vulnerabilities
- Target Penetration – If within testing scope, systems may be compromised
- Analysis – Analysing the results from previous stages for potential impact
- Reporting – Detailed findings & recommendations based on the Analysis stage
Independent penetration testing is recommended on a regular basis. However, one-off assessments may be performed.
7Safe also regularly performs application security penetration testing and security code reviews which many clients find an excellent complementary measure. Our reporting delivers a high-level summary for management purposes together with technical details which are organised according to perceived risk. Within each section are recommendations for resolving any vulnerabilities found, combined with an overall conclusion which details any additional recommended actions if required.
