What does a Penetration Test cost?

One of the most frequently asked questions from small local businesses to large global enterprises is what does a Penetration Test cost?

The average cost of a Penetration Test is impacted by the number of IP addresses and URL’s, size and complexity of the IT infrastructure, number of physical locations and data centers, network segmentation, and timing of the service.

In evaluating the cost for a Penetration Test, many industry analysts point to the TCO (total cost of ownership). The TCO for a penetration test includes the methodology and approach used, experience of the testers, and quality of the end product.

The starting cost for a typical penetration test for 50 IP’s is $10,000. Reducing the cost of a penetration test is of course very important – but a penetration test must follow a sound approach, with experienced assessors to provide value to the organization.

For over a decade TrustNet has provided cost effective penetration tests to multiple organizations, across industries and around the world.

Why Use TrustNet to Perform a Penetration Test?

Organizations have a complex network of protective measures, like technology, software, and human expertise, that helps keep customer information and sensitive data safe.

But how do you know that your protection measures are working? Penetration testing, also known as pen testing or ethical hacking, involves hiring a third-party company like TrustNet to first analyze your systems, protocols, and procedures and then attempt to attack and infiltrate them just as a genuine cybercriminal would.

Having an experienced and independent team allows an organization to test those systems. For over a decade TrustNet has performed penetration tests to help organizations uncover hidden security vulnerabilities. Our proven methodology provides actionable steps for ensuing the security of your systems.

Types of Penetration Testing TrustNet performs

White box testing
The hacker is given information about your systems and vulnerabilities and has a good idea of what to test.

Black box testing
The hacker is provided with little or no data ahead of time. Their task is to use all of the skills at their disposal to hack into the system

Gray box testing
This hybrid of the white and black box methods provides a medium amount of information to the tester in advance.

Covert
In this type, even your staff does not know that the tester is attempting to infiltrate your perimeters, allowing you to assess how your team reacts to security incidents.

External test
The tester uses apps, servers, or websites away from your work site.
