Have you developed your own code?
Code forms the backbone of every application. Developing code is tedious. It is common for there to be mistakes – bugs, outdated libraries, injection vectors, insecure functions, overflows, or any other logic flaws. Unfortunately, one small mistake can put your sensitive data in the wrong hands.
It takes an expert with advanced knowledge to analyze and review a piece of code’s difficult language. At KirkpatrickPrice, our experienced pen testers will take a hybrid approach to their testing. First, they will run automated scans to reveal common gaps and then manually review each line of code for any vulnerability that could be manipulated by an attacker.
Partner with an expert to get a custom game plan on what you should test and how to execute your attack simulation. Our penetration testers begin by gaining initial knowledge of your attack surface and infrastructure assets, which reveals a clear path for the engagement.
Experience how your security defenses respond during a simulated cyber attack by an advanced ethical hacker. Our penetration testers will use their expertise and intuition to assess your attack surface and discover any vulnerabilities within your security stance.
After the exploit, our professional writing team will deliver a report that gives insight into any vulnerabilities discovered and expert guidance on how to remediate them. After remediation, our team will retest to assure that you’ve fortified your defenses and attack surface.

How much does a penetration test cost?
Pricing for a penetration test depends on scoping factors, including business applications, technology platforms, physical locations, and other environment aspects. Pricing will coincide with the amount of time needed for the engagement, as well as how many experts are needed to complete it.
What is code review?
Code review is a tedious test performed by an ethical hacker to check for human errors, bugs, and other vulnerabilities in your code.
What is the penetration testing process?
During penetration testing, our experts gain initial knowledge by researching an organization’s infrastructure assets. They follow a methodology derived from various sources, including the OSSTMM, Information Systems Audit Standards, CERT/CC, the SANS Institute, NIST, and OWASP. After interpreting the results, they will use manual techniques, human intuition, and years of experience to attack the vulnerabilities found. After the exploitation, our professional writing team will send you a comprehensive report with a narrative explaining the testing techniques, vulnerabilities exposed, and guidance for remediation action steps.
How long does a penetration test take to complete?
Every penetration test is different. Depending on the scope of your environment, time spent testing may vary. The average penetration test takes two to three weeks. The entire engagement including kick off, scoping, access and whitelisting, research, attack, report writing, vulnerability remediation, retest, and final report averages around two to three months.
What do I receive when my penetration test is complete?
After a penetration test, our professional writing team will work with your tester to write a comprehensive report with a narrative explaining the testing techniques, vulnerabilities exposed, and guidance for remediation action steps.
How often does a penetration test need to be performed?
For various auditing frameworks the time frames range from every six months to a year. As cybersecurity experts, we know that security is cyclical and suggest a continuous testing approach to testing. Depending on an organization’s level of security maturity, penetration test recurrence could vary.
