About Penetration Testing

After a security breach, many companies lose valuable resources, assets, customer information, intellectual property, or worse. Enterprises of all sizes utilize IoT networks and devices, which can increase exposure to external attacks. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate security by understanding the ecosystem surrounding IoT devices.
IoT penetration testing is complex. The IoT network is, in fact, a cyber-version of the organization itself. And penetration testing requires a good understanding of the complete ecosystem and cybersecurity measures in order to protect the organization.
Penetration testing is an effective way to reveal the weaknesses that malware, hackers, and other destructive elements look to exploit. DEKRA’s experts apply the latest penetration testing methodologies and tools to discover where a product or system is weakest, providing customized services according to goals and system requirements.

Our product penetration tests follow six basic steps:

  1. Collecting information
  2. Modeling threats
  3. Analyzing vulnerabilities
  4. Exploitation
  5. Post-exploitation
  6. Reporting
