CyberForces Pentesting


CyberForces Pentesting

Have you ever wondered if your digital safety systems stand up to the real threat? If there was a way to examine it in the most reliable, real-world conditions, it would start with getting under attack. The data provided by recording the efforts of a malicious attacker would be used as a benchmark in vulnerability assessment, spotting and ranking weaknesses with complex strategy provided after a full analysis. Fortunately, that’s what we do.

Penetration testing provides you with:

What is penetration testing?


Penetration testing is all about a skilled specialist using a full arsenal of methods and technics trying to compromise clients security systems. The manual and automated tests combined with the ethical hacker’s knowledge and creativity are considered a detailed representation of how a real attack would be conducted.

Pentesting considers several areas:

  • Network, where it focuses on network and system level flaws
  • Web and mobile applications where we leverage the OWASP framework to maximize attack potential
  • IoT where we focus on critical areas that go beyond basic flashpoints, such as protocols, encryptions, UI, APIs

Well performed pentesting allows analyzing vectors, assessing casualties and overall testing your security infrastructure in real conditions. Ultimately the goal is to prepare a strategic roadmap with solutions aiming to patch the vulnerabilities we found and develop defences in a short- and long-term.

While performing pentesting services we adopt state of the art tools, according to best practices in security testing industry:

  • Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) - to detect vulnerabilities for applications in their running state
  • Nessus - to quickly identify software flaws, malware and misconfigurations to comprehend potential vectors of the attack and use it against the system
  • OWASP ZAP (Zed Attack Proxy Project) - for scanning a web application to find gateways, that lead to more efficient testing
  • Static Application Security Testing (SAST) - for finding flaws in source code
  • Checkmarx - to manage Software Exposure. Useful in CI/CD pipelines
  • SonarQube - used for Continuous Inspection to provide improvement in code security

For best mobile and WWW services coverage, we work along the OWASP Testing Guide. For more complex tests that include infrastructure and multi-compound projects, we use the PTES guide.

The pentesting process look as follows:





After signing a Non-Disclosure Agreement we gather access data to your systems.


Initial System Analysis


We verify tests range by an understanding of your system’s architecture and operation to quote a project.


Gathering testing team


We make sure we can allocate the right specialists to conduct the tests meeting the highest standards. We base the testers’ choice on their expertise on a field of the client’s system.


Offer presentation


We put on an offer with the scope of services provided, we provide the client with our IP addresses so he can tell whether we’re the ones conducting malware operations or is he under an adversarial attack.


Preparing for the test


We make sure all the stakeholders know when and how will the test be conducted (including the client’s hosting service). We schedule the tests so it doesn’t affect clients systems and digital infrastructure to ensure we don’t harm the business integrity.


Running the test


The moment you know how it feels when your company is under a massive cyberattack. All the critical vulnerabilities we found are reported immediately.


Complex report


The overall report contains two sections:

  • executive summary for the company’s management only
  • comprehensive technical details for the technical employees

The report presents types of flaws, points out specific flaws we found and a suggest priorities of patching. Each vulnerability instantiation is described with deep characteristic, its origin, steps to reproduce it and suggested way to fix it. We send the report by a secure channel of client’s choice.


Retests and consulting


We wait for the client to call and schedule retests to verify proper flaws correction. We can also conduct workshops and lectures considering ways to mitigate further risks, avoiding mistake patterns and raising cybersecurity awareness.

What is penetration testing?


A penetration testing is when a qualified professional walks into hacker shoes to recreate his way of thinking and methods he uses in order to breach a company’s security infrastructure, which allows him to gain the knowledge needed for further improvement in their defence systems.

What’s the difference between a vulnerability scan and a pen test?

Check more


A vulnerability scan is a previously programmed automatic search for predefined weak spots, while pen test is more of an exploratory evaluation with a machine and human-driven approach combined, that covers a much wider field and reproduces real hackers methods much more precisely.

How is a pen test conducted?

Check more


Penetration testing is all about trying to utilise cybercriminals’ operations. Therefore its main tools and techniques include phishing, cross-site scripting, SQL injection and custom malware deployment.

Will a pen test disrupt my systems?

Check more


CyberForces is greatly concerned about our clients’ business, therefore our penetration tests are performed under strict ethical standards. As our testers are specialized professionals we’ll do whatever we can to annulate the risk of affecting the everyday business schedule.

How often should a pen test be performed?

Check more


At least once a year, but considering the high priority of implementing modern, strict security standards as well as being under a constant threat of hackers attacks we recommend scheduling them quarterly or even more often.

What happens after a pen test is completed?

Check more


After completing pentesting procedures, CyberForces specialist gather intel and write a custom report considering all the vulnerabilities they found with indicated recommendations of remedial actions.

How much does a pen test cost?

Check more


A pen test cost depends on various compounds such as the tested network size, that will ultimately define the length of tests. A custom quotation is created for each and every project.
