Coronavirus Update and Remote Internal Penetration Testing

COVID19 Update

As the World Health Organisation has now declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, Pentest People have followed precautions made by the Government and will now have all staff working remotely to avoid social interaction and keep our team as safe as we can. We often have team members working from home, so this change is easy for us and there will be no impact or changes to the services that you receive from us.

Pentest People are aware of the needs businesses have for cybersecurity and in a time where malicious activity is likely to increase due to the current state of affairs, we can assure you we are fully prepared to guarantee uninterrupted service to all our customers (new & current) as we always do.

Pentest People has always praised itself on its innovation and the development of its internal tools to make sure our services adhere to governing standards. Which is why to ensure your security posture can stay prepared for any threats and vulnerabilities we have today launched a brand new service.

Although our staff will still be able to physically come on-site we have already prepared an alternative solution for customers who would rather not have staff attending site during this period. This solution is our Remote Internal Testing service called SecureGateway.

Remote Internal Testing

Infrastructure Penetration Tests are usually conducted onsite for the internal element, where a Pentest People Consultant would visit your office and physically connect to the network infrastructure to perform the assessment.

With the issues faced around the Coronavirus situationPentest People have released a brand new technology-led alternative to having a consultant visit site.

We are from today offering a Remote Infrastructure Penetration Test where the whole engagement is performed without the need to visit the customer site as an alternative to our usual offering where a consultant would visit your workplace.

The client can either download a Virtual Machine Image that can be installed within the corporate network or be shipped a standalone network appliance

Both solutions create a secure channel to the Pentest People Operations Centre where the assigned consultant can then command the image or appliance in the same way as they would if they had their laptop on site.

All data collected during the test is held securely at our ISO27001 Operations Centre allowing the consultant to perform the assessment and upload the results to SecurePortal for delivery to the customer.
