Penetration Testing and IT Security Analysis

Penetration test and IT security analysis

Protect your business from network attacks with IT penetration testing

Criminal hackers can penetrate organizations through vulnerabilities in the network, IT system, applications or mobile devices and manipulate or steal business and customer data. No company is "too small" or "too insignificant" for an attack. Many businesses have already been unknowingly compromised. Do you know the weak points in your systems and applications that attackers could exploit? Internal and external penetration tests and IT security analysis can provide those answers.

We examine your IT infrastructure from a hacker's perspective. In this process we simulate a realistic cyberattack and identify vulnerabilities in your IT before attackers can exploit them. Our experts recommend suitable countermeasures and assist you in their implementation. So you can protect your systems and sensitive business and customer data from harmful unauthorized access and industrial espionage.

Want to know how to optimize the security of your IT infrastructure? Contact our specialists today.

Identify and remove vulnerabilities early with our IT security analysis

Our effective penetration test and IT security analysis reduce your vulnerability to potential hackers and improve the security of your network, your IT systems and your mobile devices. As well as providing an overview of your actual weak points, our qualified specialists identify ways for you to permanently protect yourself from network attacks. With stable network security you can ensure that your data are confidential and intact as well as reducing your liability risk. Our experts can also explain the security analysis report to your management or present the results as part of a workshop.

We improve your IT infrastructure security in just a few steps

Pentest and security analysis – TÜV Rheinland
In just a few steps we optimize your company's IT security with our pentesting and IT analysis.

In just a few steps our IT penetration test and security analysis provide an objective and reliable assessment of how effective your IT security measures are and if there is room for improvement.

  1. Collecting information:
    We collect all the information relevant for an attack and examine the company from the perspective of an external attacker.
  2. Identifying vulnerabilities:
    We determine potential weak points in networks, infrastructure components, mobile end devices and applications.
  3. Exploiting vulnerabilities:
    We attempt access in the role of an external or internal attacker.
  4. Reporting:
    We document and analyze the vulnerabilities identified.
  5. Countermeasures:
    We recommend suitable protective measures and explain the next steps.


Our modules include the following areas:

  • Infrastructures
  • Mobile applications
  • WLAN
  • Central components
  • Web applications
  • Rich/fat clients and other applications
  • Source code analysis
  • IT-Forensics
  • Embedded Devices

Our services for SAP penetration tests

We also assist with our services for the security analysis of SAP systems on the SAP, database and operating system levels. In order to do this we have an:

1. Authenticated technical vulnerability scan at SAP level that covers the following areas:

  • Configuration of the SAP application server
  • Effectiveness of the patch management process
  • Interface security and RFC configuration
  • Permissions and function separation in the SAP basis
  • Permissions of the SAP basis
  • Reports and function modules in the customer namespace are scanned for typical weak points (ABAP source code analysis)

2. Authenticated vulnerability scan of the operating system configuration:

  • Effectiveness of the patch management process
  • Potential weak points in the system configuration
  • Correct encryption of network connections

3. Authenticated compliance scan of the database configuration:

  • Effectiveness of the patch management process
  • Potential weak points in the system configuration
  • Correct encryption of network connections

4. Identification of further vulnerabilities of the systems in the area of application to attacks from the internal company network as defined by a penetration test

We present the results of the SAP pentest during the final discussion and create a detailed report on risks and recommendations. In the process we create transparency and raise awareness among your employees.

Learn more about the field of pentests and IT security analysis

You would like to learn more about penetration testing and IT security analysis? We have answered the most important questions below.

1. What is a penetration test and an IT security analysis?
During a penetration test and an IT security analysis we simulate a realistic cyberattack on your IT infrastructure from a hacker's perspective. This allows our experts to identify existing or potential vulnerabilities in your IT before attackers can exploit them.

2. What are the advantages of penetration testing and the IT safety concept?
You receive a comprehensive overview of the vulnerabilities and weak points in your network, IT system, applications and mobile devices. Our experts show you how to permanently protect yourself from network attacks to prevent industrial espionage and harmful unauthorized access. This allows you to protect the confidentiality and integrity of your data and reduce your liability risk.

3. What is the procedure for creating an IT security concept?
We collect all the information relevant for an attack and examine your company from the perspective of an attacker. Once we have identified vulnerabilities we attempt to access them as an external or internal attacker. Then we document and analyze the identified weak points and work with you to develop relevant countermeasures.

4. What areas are covered by the IT security analysis modules?

  • Infrastructures
  • Applications on the internet
  • Mobile applications
  • WLAN
  • Central components
  • Web applications
  • Rich/fat clients and other applications

5. Do I need to protect myself from network attacks even as a small business?
Yes, because no company is too small or insignificant for an attack. We have applied our experience successfully even for small businesses and in a variety of industries.

6. Would I detect a network attack?
No, not necessarily. Many businesses have already fallen victim to criminal hackers without noticing.

7. Is a one-off security check enough?
A security check is always a snapshot. Both the attacks and the tested infrastructure or application continue to develop, so that test results become less valuable over time. Therefor such tests should be conducted regularly. They do not have to cover all aspects, but can instead focus on any changes. As a rule, however, you should conduct a full retest after no more than two years.
