Penetration Testing
Verify Systems with the Most Realistic Attack.

Penetration Testing simulates an attack by cybersecurity experts with hacker's mindset and techniques to identify vulnerabilities, verify data breach risks and assess cybersecurity defenses.

Blood attracts sharks.
Your vulnerabilities attract hackers

  • Unlike computer viruses, hacker attacks are much more targeted and aggressive toward enterprises.
  • Penetration Testing is analogous to a health examination for particular systems, focusing on different aspects and depth.
  • Regularly conducting Penetration Tests allows for early identification and remediation of vulnerabilities, thereby strengthening protection against hackers.

What systems require Penetration Testing?

Systems storing or handling highly sensitive data and personal information
Systems with management permissions over a large number of hosts
Systems directly related to business operations and are exposed to the Internet
Critical systems in the perimeter network or a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone)
Systems with major social impact

Penetration Testing (PT) service uses hacking techniques to identify vulnerabilities. Also, verify the security of an enterprise's website, information systems, hardware, and software, to determine if security needs improvement.

Items Tested by Penetration Testing

Network scans

During the initial phase of a Penetration Test, testers conduct reconnaissance on the involved applications and services to build a rudimentary understanding of the potential attack surface.

Vulnerability scans

After completing initial network scanning, testers further examine each service for known weaknesses and attempt to exploit these vulnerabilities. Testers may even develop custom tools to facilitate exploitation and assess the strategic value of findings.

Benefits of Penetration Testing

Evaluate the risk level and exploitation of combined vulnerabilities

Most enterprises prioritize the remediation of high and severe risk vulnerabilities while shelving medium and low risk ones. However, a skilled attacker has the ability to combine seemingly trivial vulnerabilities into unexpectedly powerful attack chains. DEVCORE's Penetration Testing service can unveil the true severity and impact of each finding by demonstrating these attack chains.

Provide recommendations on improving application security

Our Penetration Testing experts offer tailored remediation advice based on the programming language, development framework, operating system, and website functionality used in the client's environment. This allows developers to quickly apply fixes effective and appropriate for the current use case.

Ensure complete remediation

Developers who are not fully familiar with the vulnerability or misunderstand remediation advice might implement incomplete fixes, which may lead to novel attacks if the vulnerability is used in combination with others. A thorough follow-up testing by our Penetration Testing experts ensures that vulnerabilities are correctly and completely remediated, thereby greatly decreasing the probability of the aforementioned scenario.


DEVCORE's Penetration Testing service differs from other services and is conducted manually by highly experienced cybersecurity experts. Throughout testing, our specialists leverage a myriad of advanced techniques and various combinations of vulnerabilities to verify if any methods can break through a website's current defenses.

Penetration Testing specialists who truly think like hackers

DEVCORE has always been dedicated to hacker communities and is familiar with hacker mindset and techniques. We relentlessly study ever-evolving threats and apply them to our Penetration Tests. DEVCORE believes cybersecurity is an endless war, where knowing oneself and the enemy is key to winning every battle. Understanding the hackers' mindset is the only way to conduct a successful and genuine Penetration Test.

Finding your 0-days before hackers do

We specialize in combining vulnerabilities of different risks and nature to maximize the impact of attacks and expose undiscovered attack paths. DEVCORE's experts have published vulnerabilities for many renowned international products, and we are extremely capable of identifying your 0-day vulnerabilities before hackers do.

Multifaceted team prepared for diverse targets

Large enterprises usually have wide-ranging attack surfaces, spanning from websites, mobile apps, and network devices to various hardware and software. DEVCORE's multifaceted team is composed of experts in a broad spectrum of systems, programming languages, and devices. We are capable of tackling diverse objectives for an all-rounded assessment of your security risks.


  • How do I prepare for a Penetration Test?

    Precise price quotes: To better evaluate the functionality and complexity of the intended scope and targets, please provide relevant access information and permission settings so we can better understand your systems.

    Scheduling: DEVCORE will arrange with the client the schedule of a Penetration Test. Working hours are typical during office hours so the client can quickly address critical vulnerabilities found and reported during testing. We also provide the source IP addresses of our actions to help you differentiate between authorized testing and real attacks.

  • Will Penetration Testing affect my other servers?

    No, DEVCORE strictly conducts tests in compliance with the engagement terms and objectives agreed upon by both parties.

  • How do you protect data obtained through Penetration Testing?

    Data acquisition and handling follows procedures agreed upon by both parties. For example, instead of retrieving sensitive information in the database, we may provide screenshots of access or an authorized number of data as evidence, which will be deleted upon completion of the Penetration Test.

  • What about the frequency of Penetration Testing?

    We recommend conducting a Penetration Test prior to launching any major changes to core systems.
