How secure are IoT devices and the information they transmit?
With the innovation of new technology every day, the world of smart devices is growing at a rapid rate. Securing IoT devices and their connected networks proves crucial to protecting a company’s assets. Since there are so many IoT devices connected to an organization’s network, they are common access points for exploitation and can often go unnoticed.
KirkpatrickPrice’s expert penetration testers will assess your IoT devices to see if your security measures are strong enough to keep attackers at bay. Due to the vast world of IoT devices, each company’s string of devices requires a unique test and viewpoint. At KirkpatrickPrice, we have expert penetration testers that will test your IoT devices with current attack techniques in mind.
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 IoT penetration testing?
IoT penetration testing is an engagement used by organizations to test the effectiveness of their security controls within their IoT technology and make sure that the information transmitted through these devices is secure.
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.
