Designed to mimic real-world threats and sophisticated attack vectors to test your defences and eliminate gaps into your entire organisation.


It’s no secret that security breaches and service interruptions are costly for your organisation. It can result in financial loss, threaten your brand and reputation and erode customer loyalty.

It’s also impossible to safeguard all information, all the time. The increasing number of applications and systems has made it even harder to find and eliminate all vulnerabilities that may exist in your organisation.

To combat the threat, Loop Secure’s Penetration Testing service aims to identify any IT security flaws, so you can effectively prioritise and manage these vulnerabilities. We then determine the feasibility of an attack and assess the impact of a successful attack on your organisation.

Why engage a
penetration testing service?

By engaging a penetration testing service, you will gain visibility into weaknesses in your security posture that may otherwise be invisible. Temporarily planted in the shoes of a cyber threat actor, a professional penetration tester knows exactly where to look for vulnerabilities and which exploitation techniques should be used to obtain the goals they are trying to achieve, whether it be stealthy, persistent access or mass destruction.

If you engage a seasoned, ethical hacker from a penetration testing company, you can be sure that your security measures are up to scratch, which not only gives you peace of mind, but your customers as well. Our Penetration Testing service will ensure that your organisation is operating in compliance with all GRC standards including ISO 27001.

Loop’s Penetration Testing service

Loop’s penetration testers are certified with industry standards such as GIAC and CREST. Like an actor preparing for their next big role, we step into the shoes of the cybercriminals and fully immerse ourselves in their threat actor mentality - only temporarily though.

Loop offers a range of penetration testing solutions that help you to arm your business against potential cybersecurity breaches. Our range of penetration testing services are included below.


External Infrastructure penetration tests

Simulate attacks against your public facing assets by testing your external systems and infrastructure. This enables you to uncover vulnerabilities that are publicly accessible to anyone on the Internet. External penetration tests typically start with reconnaissance of your external footprint, using a combination of public and paid data sources. Combined with activities such as port discovery and vulnerability scanning, Loop will identify vulnerabilities and attempt to exploit them, chaining together vulnerabilities if required, to demonstrate the maximum impact of what may start out as a handful of seemingly low-risk issues. Commonly, the goal of external penetration tests is to gain a foothold in your environment, that can be used as a pivot point to begin attacking internal assets.

Internal Infrastructure penetration tests

Assess the internal infrastructure of your organisation by simulating a malicious attack from the inside to identify vulnerable systems and services that are valuable to a cybercriminal.

A threat actor could be present in your internal network via multiple means; a user may have been compromised, your perimeter or endpoints may have been breached, or some other type of internal threat might exist. Internal penetration testing aims to identify vulnerabilities and misconfigurations within the internal environment and demonstrate what potential impact they may cause to your organisation.

Loop uses a combination of proprietary and published tradecraft to gain access to systems in your internal network, escalate privileges, and then move laterally through the environment. An agile and iterative approach is applied to internal testing, as each successful exploit brings us one step closer to the ultimate aim of compromising the most valuable assets in your organisation. 

Web and Mobile Application Tests

Web and Mobile application testing will ensure client’s applications meet industry best practice security standards. We leverage our years of experience in application testing, coupled with our in- depth knowledge of the inner workings of applications to identify common and hard to find vulnerabilities, providing clients with recommendations that assist with the mitigation and fixing of existing and emerging threats. 

Social Engineering

Our social engineering service assesses the strength of your workforce security by attempting to exploit the human aspects. Increase the security awareness of an organisation by conducting social engineering campaigns that identify weaknesses in people and processes. 

We design engagements tailored to your organisation, making attempts to gather information through different methods such as phone calls (vishing), emails (phishing) and SMS (smishing). At the end of the campaign, we will provide you with the results, summarising vulnerabilities, assessing their risk to your organisation and providing remediation advice.

Physical Assessment

Physical intrusion exercises assess the vulnerabilities of your physical premises and supporting infrastructure used to manage corporate environments. Loop performs active intrusion tests that seek to demonstrate what a real-world threat actor could achieve when targeting your organisation in the locations your organisation operates from. 

Example exercises that can be performed to demonstrate weaknesses include gaining unauthorised entry to key locations such as server rooms, executive suites and board rooms. Other capabilities include deploying overt monitoring devices inside an environment or hardware implants throughout the network, and simulating device theft scenarios. 

Commonly exploited weaknesses include poor hardware choices for digital and mechanical access control systems, insecure building design, staff susceptibility to social engineering attacks and weaknesses in the configuration of digital access control systems.

What is a Penetration Test?

A penetration test is an authorised cyber attack that is deployed with the intention of seeking possible vulnerabilities that could be exploited. A penetration test is considered an ethical hacking service and is performed as a form of offensive defense, allowing the authoriser to further strengthen their security defences. 

Why does my company need to do penetration tests?

Penetration testing is an important element to achieving a strong cybersecurity defence. It puts the penetration tester into the mindset of the cyber threat actors, allowing them to identify vulnerabilities and potential vectors for a malicious attack. It is recommended for companies to conduct this kind of testing as it allows them to discover weak points within their security measures before someone with mal-intent does it first.

Why should penetration testing be done by a service provider?

Penetration testing should be performed by a service provider like Loop Secure simply because we have extensive knowledge of the latest exploitation techniques. Service providers do this kind of testing regularly, meaning that we have more experience and knowledge than most in-house IT security professionals. External penetration testing also ensures there is no bias during the testing process.

Are Loop Secure’s penetration testers certified?

Yes. Every one of our penetration testers are fully vetted and hold industry-standard certifications such as:

  • OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional)
  • OSCE (Offensive Security Certified Expert) 
  • OSEP (Offensive Security Experienced Penetration Tester)
  • GCPN (GIAC Cloud Penetration Tester)
  • OSWE (Offensive Security Web Expert)
  • GMOB (GIAC Mobile Device Security Analyst)
  • CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) 

With Loop Secure, you know that you’ve got the most trustworthy security partners on your side.

How much does a penetration testing service cost?

The cost of penetration testing services varies on a case-by-case basis. The cost will depend on how long it takes to complete the testing, which then depends on the complexity of the infrastructure and business applications.
