Security Testing

Technical expertise with industry insight

Security and Penetration testing, provides your organisation with the assurance that your vulnerabilities have been assessed and the risk of a breach is managed as part of your overall security controls. However, when security testing services lack the understanding of your business context, critical vulnerabilities can go unnoticed, potentially exposing your organisation to significant risk, with serious consequences for your business integrity and reputation.

We provide a unique blend of Accuteque’s testing expertise of over two decades, with our depth of technical proficiency in cybersecurity. By delivering security testing services that are specifically tailored to your business context, we provide a comprehensive solution that addresses your unique cybersecurity needs.

A robust security and penetration testing process ensures a repeatable and thorough method for verifying and validating the effectiveness of security controls. The security testing process that is followed needs to provide a method that applies rigour and accountability to vulnerability assessments and penetration tests.

Security testing is not a standalone process and serves as an input to several other software and security processes, including:

  • Asset vulnerability identification within the IT Security Risk Management process;
  • Security control effectiveness review within the IT Security Certification and Accreditation process; and
  • Companion testing to component, system and integration testing within the System/ Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).
Penetration Testing & Vulnerability Assessment

Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessment are critical components of a comprehensive cybersecurity program. Partnering with SecurEyes, Accuteque offers advanced Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessment services to help organizations identify, assess, and remediate vulnerabilities in their networks, applications, and infrastructure.
