What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing, also known as pentesting, is an assessment of computer networks, systems, and applications designed to identify and address security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers. Vumetric is one of the most recognized pentest providers in Canada. Our range of ISO9001-certified penetration testing services helps organizations to effectively manage cybersecurity risk by identifying, safely exploiting, and helping to fix vulnerabilities that could otherwise lead to data and assets being compromised by malicious attackers.

Why Organizations Perform a Pentest

With threats constantly evolving, it’s recommended that every organization performs penetration tests at least once a year or in the following contexts:

Professional Reports With Actionable Recommendations

Get prioritized steps to fix any identified security gaps, from critical to low-risk vulnerabilities.

Executive summary presenting the main findings, recommendations and risk management implications in a clear non-technical language.

List of all identified vulnerabilities prioritized by risk level, according to potential impact and ease of exploitation by an attacker.

Technical details required to properly understand and replicate each vulnerability (e.g.: screenshots, HTTP requests/responses, etc.). Recommendations to mitigate and fix the identified vulnerabilities

At the end of the project, you will be provided with an attestation certifying that penetration tests have been performed by experienced professionals using recognized methodologies and standards. This document will allow you to meet compliance and regulatory reporting requirements efficiently and with minimal overhead.

The price of a penetration test can vary widely according to several factors. For this reason, there is no established price range for this type of assessment. Each project is tailored to your objectives and your technological environment. Many factors must be determined before the cost can be established.


Here are the main factors that can affect the cost:

  • Scope of the project. (Nb. of targeted IPs, Nb. of features in the app, etc.)
  • Performed in a production or development environment.
  • Type of test. (Network, Application, SCADA, etc.)
  • Testing approach. (Automated or manual approach)
  • Objectives. (Compliance, best practices, etc.)

At the end of the project, you will be provided with a detailed report that includes all the findings and recommended mitigations. The technical report includes the following:

  • Executive summary presenting the main observations and recommendations.
  • Vulnerability matrix prioritised by risk level.
  • Vulnerabilities details including the following:
    • Risk Level based on potential impact and exploitability.
    • Fixes & Recommendations to fix the identified vulnerabilities.
    • References to external resources to facilitate the implementation of our recommendations.
    • Technical details such as screenshots, system traces, logs, etc.
  • Appendix detailing complementary technical information.
  • Methodology used during the project. (based on recognized standards)
Depending on your context, you will also be provided with an attestation certifying that penetration tests have been performed by experienced professionals using recognized methodologies and standards. This document will allow you to meet compliance and regulatory reporting requirements efficiently and with minimal overhead.

Various steps are taken over the course of the project to prevent the potential impact of our tests on the stability of your technological environment and the continuity of your business operations.

For this reason, a communication plan will be put in place at the beginning of the project to prevent and mitigate any potential impact. A representative of your organization will be identified to act as the main point of contact to ensure rapid communication in the event of a situation directly impacting the conduct of your daily operations, or if any critical vulnerabilities are identified, for which  corrective measures need to be implemented quickly.
There are various penetration testing methodologies and standards that can be used depending on the type of assessment. Here are some of the industry-leading methodologies used in our penetration testing services:

  • OSSTMM – Provides a scientific methodology for network penetration testing and vulnerability assessment to identify vulnerabilities from various potential angles of attack.
  • OWASP – Aims to identify vulnerabilities within Web and Mobile applications. Provides over 66 controls to assess in totals to identify potential vulnerabilities within functionalities found in modern applications today.
  • PTES – Highlights the most recommended approach to structure a penetration test. This standard guides testers on various steps of a penetration test including initial communication, gathering information, as well as the threat modeling phases.
