Recurring penetration testing

Security is a journey. Not a destination. The threat is rapidly evolving. Only recurring penetration testing allows the constant evaluation of the IS security status of an organization. Recurring penetration testing is becoming even more important today due to the outreach of attacks; the exploitation of flaws is no longer solely reserved for experts in the field. Even people who lack the technical expertise, with few resources and a deliberate desire to damage can definitely cause harm to the IS of the organization


Aware of what is at stake, DATAPROTECT is now offering its customers the possibility to carry out recurring internal and external penetration testing through specific framework agreements.

The perimeter of the framework agreement

To better grasp the perimeter, DATAPROTECT offers different types of tests, taking into account the customer's needs, expectations and constraints.
