Penetration Testing

Penetration testing, also known as ethical hacking, is where an authorised cyber security expert attempts to find and exploit vulnerabilities in an organisation’s systems, digital and physical.

Instead of identifying only potential vulnerabilities, a penetration test pushes things further to uncover whether those vulnerabilities can lead to an actual breach.

Think of it like inviting an ethical burglar to break into your house to put your home security system to the test. The intention being to identify any weak spots and allow you to strengthen your defences.

Who should perform a penetration test?

Let Martarna do the heavy lifting and manage your penetration test, freeing you up to do what you do best, run your business.

We will organise an independent contractor to perform your penetration test. With no prior knowledge of your system, their fresh eyes can find previously hidden weaknesses, that even your system developer or maintenance team may have missed.

What does a penetration test involve?

Information gathering

The penetration test begins with the ethical hacker gathering data and information to help plan the simulated attack

Gaining access

Armed with this information, the hacker turns their attention to gaining and maintaining access to your system., using a broad set of tools and methods. This can include specially designed attack software, injecting code to modify or retrieve data, hardware to gain remote access and social engineering, such a phishing emails or physical entry to an organisation’s premises.


The hacker will leave the system as they found it, removing all traces of their presence.


A full report will allow you to implement security upgrades and eliminate any vulnerabilities discovered during the test.

Breach and attack

For an even more in-depth assessment, we can organise a breach and attack simulation test. This mimics a multi-pronged attack and will really put your system under pressure. It will flesh out even the most well-hidden weaknesses, making it the gold standard penetration test.
