Discover. Determine. Defend.

iVOLUTION Technologies offers complete and comprehensive penetration testing to secure your information assets from attackers. Penetration tests are critical complements to vulnerability scanning. Penetration testing is the logical next step and provides tangible evidence illustrating to what extent vulnerabilities can be exploited. Penetration testing actively promotes the discovery of vulnerabilities, determines their actual impact and provides the information required to remediate vulnerabilities and defend your infrastructure and information assets.

Real World Attacks

Penetration testing services imitate the types of attacks an intruder could leverage against your information assets. Testing can identify actual attack vectors or paths that must be eliminated and provides you with a workable remediation plan. Launching attacks from a network location, we exploit security weaknesses to gain control over systems with increasing levels of access if required. Depending on the access level of a compromise, we escalate our privilege levels to those of a system administrator with access to information assets that can include sensitive and confidential data.
