A penetration test is the deliberate evasion or breaking of security mechanisms of a system in order to penetrate unauthorized. Our international security researchers not only use known attack patterns, but also develop attacks tailored to your environment.

Due to its broad knowledge, QUANTUM cyber lab AG has the opportunity to put your computer systems, (wireless) networks, software, IoT devices, vehicles, social engineering or physical security mechanisms to the test.

Here are some important advantages of our penetration tests:

  • Make sure that your existing IT security is adequate
  • Identify security gaps so that suitable controls are implemented
  • Testing new and existing software and systems for weak points
  • Conformity with standards such as PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
  • Show a security commitment to external and internal stakeholders

How does a QUANTUM cyber lab penetration test work?

  1. In a workshop you determine with us ...
    • the project scope
    • the aim of the project
    • how far we are allowed to go in testing
    • initial situation (black, gray, white box test)
  1. At the beginning of the project, it is crucial to find out the goal. With our know-how, suitable software and research, we collect every little detail, as it can be of importance later.
  2. With targeted tests, we determine whether your system is adequately protected by protective mechanisms.
  3. Once we have gathered enough information, we determine the attack vectors and target vulnerabilities. Should we succeed in exploiting a weak point, you will receive conceptual proof in the resulting report.
  4. If you give us permission, we will try to gain access to connected systems and thus show how far a criminal hacker can get.
  5. All finds are recorded in a final report and all conceptual evidence is provided along with suitable measures to remedy the security gap. Everything will be explained to you in great detail by our experts.

Penetration testing is used to uncover vulnerabilities in IT systems and mitigate criminal exploitation. Secure your business infrastructure, networks and software with penetration testing. Due to cyberattacks and security breaches, companies lose enormous sums of money in addition to valuable data - and in many cases have to deal with irreparable damage. Penetration testing is a viable method to combat malicious activity. Quantum Cyber Lab offers a range of penetration tests that include rigorous assessments of your organization's network. Penetration testing aims to uncover vulnerabilities and weaknesses in your systems and potentially exploit them. Comprehensive reports from our cybersecurity experts include in-depth summaries and detailed technical recommendations to improve the current level of IT security in your organization's networks. What are penetration tests? A penetration test (also called a "pen test") is an attack on your organization's network to test the ability of your systems to withstand a cyber attack. The test is conducted ethically so as not to disrupt actual business operations while actively identifying exploitable system weaknesses. Once the vulnerabilities are identified, remedial actions can be taken to address those vulnerabilities and secure your IT infrastructure. The Importance of Penetration Testing Penetration testing is an essential security assessment for many organizations, conducted at regular intervals to reveal exploitable vulnerabilities in complex networks and computer systems. The information gained from such tests can provide valuable insight into a company's security status and can act as a commercial enabler, ensuring that new commercial agreements can be signed with impeccable security certification. New ventures can be launched with a high level of confidence. You have the assurance that your company's systems have been rigorously tested. The highest level of security is in place to defend against cyberattacks, and Quantum Cyber Lab is also very well positioned to perform any remediation required to ensure your systems are as secure as possible.

Regular security testing has the following goals:

  • Ensure that your existing IT security is adequate.
  • Identify security deficiencies so that appropriate controls can be put in place
  • Testing new and existing software and systems for vulnerabilities
  • Assist with compliance with relevant data protection laws and regulations, such as the GDPR
  • Enable compliance with standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
  • Demonstrate commitment to security to external and internal stakeholders

Various penetration tests focus on different aspects of an organization's logical perimeter, the boundary that separates an enterprise network from the Internet.

  • Internal network penetration testing
  • External network penetration testing
  • Penetration testing for web applications
  • Penetration testing for wireless networks
  • Penetration testing for mobile applications
  • Penetration testing for physical devices
