Our journey takes you through the steps required to create a pentest:

  1. Select the pentest type. We offer Agile and Comprehensive Pentests.
  2. Define your assets. Our pentesters analyze all kinds of assets, from web apps to internal networks.
  3. Set requirements for your pentest.
  4. Define details of your environment. Is your asset in production or in development? Is part of your system on a Cloud platform?
  5. Plan and scope the test. Define your desired pentest start date, and specify the pentest scope. We need time to find the best available pentesters for your assets.
  6. Review your pentest request. Use our Pentest Checklist to make sure you’ve included all information that our pentesters need.

Once you’ve set up a pentest, we start analyzing your asset. When possible, we share results even before we create your report. Here’s what you can expect.
