Replacing the human element with a system automates the pen testing. Skilled and experienced IT professionals perform traditional pen testing, but this human element is rather subjective and potentially inconsistent and flawed exercise. The system periodically attempts all of the expected exploitation and dynamic hacking techniques. These exploits include techniques like, sniffing, lateral movement, remote execution, target DoS, password cracking, ethical malware injection and privilege escalation.
Working with our technology partner Pcysys’s PenTera tool, Frontier can deploy a well-executed automated pentesting service providing a detailed overview of your organisation’s exploitable vulnerabilities. The overview includes actionable recommendations on how you can optimise your protection levels in the short-term, mid-term and long-term. Most importantly, Pcysys’ automated pentesting service can be provided either as an in-house platform to allow pentesting whenever it’s needed or as pentesting as a service-on-a schedule to suit your requirements, typically monthly or quarterly, or on-demand when changes occur within your environment.
PenTera: A Thousand Pen-Testers at Your Service
- Automated solution mimicking the hackers’ attack

- Agentless solution starts with physical LAN access and no network configuration
PenTera tool performs ethical exploits without disruption of service and provides reports to measure weaknesses by their potential risk and business impact. The tool selects the minimal amount of vulnerability to stop the attack. It suggests prioritised remediation steps based on threat facing priorities relevant to network and critical assets. Moreover, it also allows you to run a targeted attack for testing the cyber resilience of specific applications or network.
