Pen testing, is a simulated, but safe cyber attack on a device or network to identify misconfigurations, compromised credentials and assess security. It involves attempting to exploit weaknesses to gain unauthorised access or simulate other malicious activities, with the ultimate goal of providing recommendations for improving security posture.
Endida in-house Pen Testers use the latest unique Pen Testing as a Service (PtaaS) technology that performs real attack scenarios on the entire IT infrastructure via autonomous penetration tests. The Endida Pen Testing service not only uncovers weaknesses, misconfigurations, leaked or compromised credentials but also checks the effectiveness of you existing cybersecurity protection mechanisms – both hardware and software.
The full post-test report gives IT teams, CIOs, CISOs and administrators a detailed analysis of attack paths with evidence of exploitation and prioritised corrective actions. As part of Endida’s Pen Test service, we provide a full remediation project plan that helps prioritise what fixes and preventive measures are needed. Endida can also include professional services to carry out all corrective measures if required.

We test and help you fix problems that matter, saving you time and money
You’re up and running an automated pen test in minutes, we do all the work for you, we can even schedule it when the network is not being used
Because if our unique tool and experience we can assess your entire organisation in a matter of hours, versus waiting weeks or months for consultants to manually run scans and produce reports
Endida has different packages which will enable you to assess your entire network, or just a certain section. Our solution fingerprints your external, internal, identity, on-prem, IoT, and cloud attack surfaces
We create actionable, curated reports we can then jointly develop a plan with you to quickly find exploitable problems, fix them and then verify that the problems no longer exist
All of your data, intellectual property and any other assets will remain private and confidential.
The Endida pen test is so thorough it often finds multiple issues with weaknesses and credentials – a manual pen tester will often stop when they find a single issue with a particular device or service.
We find all of the assets you want to test and add a simple docker container on one of your devices, or we can implement our own and set the test running
Within 48 hours you will receive a full PDF report along with an executive summary and recommendations on how to fix everything we find. We also provide professional services to remediate the issues and give you full peace of mind.
Pen testing is a process of testing computer systems, networks, and applications to identify vulnerabilities that attackers could exploit. It involves simulating real-world attacks to determine the effectiveness of an organisation’s security defences.
Pen testing can help organisations identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in their security defences before attackers can exploit them. It can also help organisations meet compliance requirements and improve their overall security posture.
The types of pen testing include network testing, web application testing, mobile application testing, social engineering testing, and wireless network testing
Endida’s autonomous pen testing uses tools and AI to scan systems for vulnerabilities and exploits without the need for time consuming human intervention.
Automated testing simply automates certain tasks, it does not “think” like AI does.
Manual pen testing involves actual human testers who use their knowledge to identify vulnerabilities, however this is limited to their own training & knowledge. They may miss something if they do not know it is an issue.
The frequency of pen testing should be determined by factors such as the organisation’s risk profile, the sensitivity of its data, and the nature of its operations. Generally, organisations should conduct pen testing at least once every 6 months and after any significant changes to their systems or networks.
Some common challenges with pen testing include false positives, lack of resources or expertise, and resistance from stakeholders who may view the testing as a disruption to their operations.
With Endida’s service, all of these issues are eliminated.
Pen testing involves simulating real-world attacks to identify vulnerabilities and assess the effectiveness of an organisation’s security defences. Vulnerability scanning is an automated process that identifies known vulnerabilities in systems and networks but does not test the effectiveness of security controls.
After a pen-test, the experts here at Endida will present you with a full, in-depth report along with recommendations as well as the professional services needed to fix them. We then prioritise and address the vulnerabilities identified, develop a remediation plan, and conduct regular follow-up testing to ensure that the vulnerabilities have been addressed.
