Penetration Testing Remediation Consultancy Service
Penetration Testing is a well-utilised service with many organisations undertaking such a service either for risk management or compliance purposes.
Fixing the issues identified in a Penetration Test is referred to as Remediation. In our experience, Remediation after a Penetration Test can be an onerous task that can burden the organisation’s technical teams.
Pentest People offer a Remediation Consultancy Service as part of their Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) offering. This service offering completes the Penetration Testing process by engaging with a consultant to provide a tailored prioritised approach to remediating any security issues identified from the testing engagement.
Just performing a Penetration Test is not enough to ensure the security of your organisation. It is what you do with the Penetration Test Findings that mitigates your risk. Pentest People provide a Remediation Consultancy Service to ensure this end-to-end PTaaS offering both identifies, and through consultancy, remediates any issues found within your infrastructure.
What Are The Risks?
Fixing identified cybersecurity issues is a technical task that has to be performed by competent technical consultants who are adept with dealing with such matters. Pentest People specialise in identifying and remediating security issues on all common platforms and applications.
It is important that you assign proper priorities to the identified issues and fix them in a timely manner. Once these issues have been fixed, they have to be retested to ensure that the fix has mitigated the risk.
How Can Our Remediation Consultancy Service Help?
This Remediation Consultancy Service provided by Pentest People is a two-stage process.
The initial phase involves one of our specialised consultants reviewing the findings of the Penetration Test report and aligning this with your business requirements to create a prioritised approach document that contains remediation advice for all of the identified issues ranked in order of risk.
Once this report is created, the next step is to look at the implementation of this plan to mitigate the risks identified.
This prioritised approach document can be implemented either by your own internal IT staff, your incumbent IT provider or Pentest People as part of the engagement, therefore, taking away the time pressures of ensuring your infrastructure is secure and free from security issues.

Asked Questions About Our Remediation Consultancy Service
An Infrastructure Penetration Test is a full consultant-led assessment of the security of your external and internal infrastructure. Pentest People use industry-leading methodologies and tools to identify the latest software and configuration vulnerabilities for all devices on your network.
An Internal Penetration Test is where a consultant would be placed within your corporate environment and connected to your internal network looking for security issues from the inside.
An External Penetration Test is where a consultant looks for security issues from the outside of your network, generally over the public Internet.
A Vulnerability Scan is performed by a software tool that scans the network and checks available services for known vulnerabilities. A Penetration Test takes this one step further and uses a consultant to check for vulnerabilities that an automated scanner cannot find as well as to manually confirm any identified vulnerabilities.
The deliverable from this service is a full Penetration Test Report that is uploaded to our SecurePortal and available for you to interact with.
This differs from the competition in the way this is delivered and we believe this is a much clearer way to work with and manage the results of the assessment.
