Penetration Testing Services
Pinpointing Vulnerabilities Before Hackers Will Find Them
With 19 years in cybersecurity and Certified Ethical Hackers on board, ScienceSoft offers black box, gray box, and white box penetration testing to check and improve the security of applications and networks.
Imitating real-world сyber attack scenarios, penetration testing is aimed to detect security vulnerabilities in software and IT infrastructure, explore the potential impact of their exploitation and provide actionable guidance on their remediation.
We recommend to fulfill a pentest in case if:
- Regularly scheduled analysis and assessments are required by regulatory mandates.
- New network infrastructure or applications were added.
- Significant upgrades or modifications to infrastructure or applications were made.
- New office locations were established.
- End-user policies were modified.
- Corporate IT was significantly changed.
Ethical Hacking to Prevent a Potential Intrusion
ScienceSoft offers complete penetration testing services designed to identify system vulnerabilities, validate existing security measures and provide a detailed remediation roadmap.
Our team, equipped with the latest tools and industry-specific test scenarios, is ready to deliver a thorough checkup to pinpoint system vulnerabilities, as well as flaws in application, service and OS, loopholes in configurations, and potentially dangerous non-compliance with security policies.
Types of a penetration test we provide:
ScienceSoft's team provided the full package of penetration testing services for our web application. Thanks to ScienceSoft's high-quality services, we were able to locate and neutralize vulnerabilities and ensure the security of our customers' personal data, as well as protect our services from potential attacks.

We work in life-like conditions having strictly limited knowledge of your network and no information on the security policies, network structure, software and network protection used
We examine your system having some information on your network, such as user login details, architecture diagrams or the network’s overview
We identify potential points of weakness by using admin rights and access to server configuration files, database encryption principles, source code or architecture documentation
ScienceSoft performed penetration testing of two web applications and an external IP address for us. ScienceSoft’s team used the black box testing model, so they had strictly limited knowledge of our IT environment in general and the testing targets in particular. Their team provided penetration testing in a timely and professional manner and gave us valuable recommendations on improving the security of our web apps and the external IP address.

Pre-attack phase / Planning
- Defining the intruder model (internal or external, enabled rights and privileges).
- Defining goals, source data, scope of work and testing targets.
- Determining the scope of a target environment.
- Developing the testing methodology.
- Defining interaction and communication procedures.
Attack phase / Testing
- Fieldwork, service identification.
- Custom scanning or intrusion tools are developed if needed.
- Vulnerabilities detection and scanning, elimination of false positives.
- Vulnerabilities exploit and gaining an unauthorized access.
- Utilization of compromised systems as a springboard for further intrusion.
Post-attack phase / Reporting
- Result analysis and reporting with recommendations for reducing risks.
- Visual demonstration of the damage that can be inflicted to the system by an intruder.
Additionally, we can also eliminate the detected vulnerabilities.
Brief description based on the achieved results and findings.
List of detected system vulnerabilities and their classification according to how easy they are to exploit and how harmful for the system and business they may be.
List of changes in the system that were implemented during testing.
Test protocol (including instruments and tools used, parts that were checked and issues found).
Actionable recommendations to eliminate the revealed security issues.
Upon the completion of security tests, we got comprehensive reports with the detailed information on the detected critical and non-critical security weaknesses and recommended measures to mitigate them. After we carried out the remediation of critical vulnerabilities, ScienceSoft’s security engineers retested the protection of our web application again to confirm its high security level and delivered an updated final report to us.
