Evaluate your security posture with Penetration Testing Services. Our approach is to simulate a real-world attack and gain a snapshot of your vulnerabilities and security weaknesses to reduce your attack surface. At Praetorian Secure we use proven tools, custom scripts, and methodologies to assess your environments unique security vulnerabilities. Testing for weaknesses in web and mobile applications, internal/external networks, medical products, IoT or on other specialized hardware devices. When it comes to managing your cyber security defenses the best way is continuous pen testing to identify weaknesses and close security gaps before attackers find them.
Penetration Testing Services simulate real-world attacks on different components of your network, systems, applications, and products to identify security weaknesses. Also, pen testing should be integrated with your development operations processes to reduce costs, time and vulnerabilities at each phase.
Pen testing can be used to determine if you’re monitoring, analytics and alerting catches malicious activities or indicators of compromise to identify blind spots in your threat detection. In contrast, web pen testing results can be used to update WAF rules to better protect your applications from specific risks identified through pen testing. Also, medical device manufacturers use pen testing to improve security, safety, and quality before FDA submission.
At Praetorian Secure we use a combination of testing methods to ensure a fully comprehensive/accurate testing program. These include: OSSTMM (Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual), The Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), The PTES Framework (Penetration Testing Methodologies and Standards), National Institute for Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) and more.
Our approach is to simulate a real-world attack and gain a snapshot of your vulnerabilities and security control weaknesses at a given point in time. Praetorian Secure continually researches the latest pen testing tactics and techniques to upgrade our testing capabilities. As we find new tools, we update or modify our test plans in our penetration testing collaboration suite.
The first step should be completing Rules of Engagement (ROE) agreement which is approved by the customer. For example, some clients prefer to use MITRE ATT&CK framework, allowing IT security teams to test their defenses quickly and easily against known adversarial techniques. To get the best return on investment pen testing activities should have a defined scope and objective that meets your company’s needs.
Moreover, formal penetration testing methodologies should be leveraged to be as efficient and comprehensive as possible given the timeframe and funding allotted for testing. Typically, the ethical hacker performing the pen test will complete a threat modeling after the intelligence gathering phase to prioritize potential weaknesses for exploitation.
Finally, penetration testing reports should identify where exploitable vulnerabilities exist and provide detailed evidence and recommendations on how the vulnerabilities can be resolved. Additionally, the final report should be used as input to your internal risk management process. Based on the severity and impact (for example, CVSS Scoring) your internal risk management process should cover reviewing and adjudicating all findings. Afterwards, comprehensive remediation plan of action should be developed with scheduled milestones for remediation based on the risk level of the findings. Executives should be part of the cross-functional risk management process to gain insight and approve the plan and residual risk level.
Over your companies lifespan, you have invested and implemented many security controls for the protection of your environment, data, and other technical resources. The question is, “will these past measures be enough far into the future?” If the answer is no, you may want to utilize our Penetration Testing Services to strengthen your current security posture. It does not matter if your looking for Internal or External, White-Box, Black-Box, or Grey-Box testing, manual vs. automated we can do it all. At the end of each penetration testing engagement we provide a report of the findings including action-based recommendations. The first step in finding a solution is to decide what kind of Penetration Testing Services you would be the best fit for your organization. Once you decide what is in-scope for the engagement it will be easy to determine the type of Penetration Testing Services that should be performed.
Perform Penetration Test and provide the following:
- Executive Summary Report – A document that summarizes the scope, approach, objectives, timeline, findings, and recommendations, at a high-level.
- Detailed Technical Report – A document that outlines the granular vulnerability details (findings), attack vectors, and proof of concepts (repeatable results). Includes CVSS Severity Rating (low, medium, high, critical) for each finding.
- House Cleaning – After our testing is completed we will remove all files, tools, and accounts used for testing and include details in our report.
- Fix Recommendations/ Action Plan
- Documents all your vulnerabilities and includes high-level fix actions.

Reveal Current Vulnerabilities
Testing provides detailed information about current security threats. Furthermore, it categorizes the severity of the vulnerability based on criticality, ranking from high to low. This helps easily and accurately manage your security system by allocating resources accordingly.
Test Before You Implement
Performing a pen test on new technologies before it goes to production saves time, money, and it is easier to fix the vulnerabilities before the application goes live.
Penetration testing keeps your organization’s major activities updated and complies with the auditing system.
Customer Security & Protection
Protecting customers data should be a top priority of all organizations. A breach of any customer data is not good, to say the last. Pen Testing protects your organization’s data and reputation from malicious threats.
Meet Compliance Regulations
You may need to meet industry and legal compliance requirements by performing penetration testing as specified. PCI Compliance requires all managers and system owners to conduct regular penetration tests and security reviews.
This includes an executive summary and technical findings with a a step-by-step breakdown and documentation of the exploitation process.
One of our qualified pen testers will meet with you to discuss your pen testing goals and requirements. After, we will provide a scoping questionnaire for you to fill out and return. Then, we can provide a quote to you in 48 hours or less. Thank you for contact us.
