Physical Security Penetration Testing

In an era where cyber-threats loom large, businesses can’t afford to overlook the importance of physical security. That’s where physical security penetration testing, or ‘physical security pen testing,’ comes into play.

Defining physical security pen testing

Physical security penetration testing is a comprehensive evaluation of a company’s physical security measures. It involves authorised, simulated attacks on a company’s physical barriers, access control systems, surveillance equipment, and other security measures to identify potential weak spots.

These tests expose vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malicious actors, providing a critical assessment of a company’s ability to protect its assets and personnel from physical intrusion. 

Certified by CREST and Offensive Security, our qualified testers employ real-world hacking techniques to uncover profound insights.

The imperative for physical security pen testing

Physical security is a vital component of a holistic security approach, protecting not just tangible assets, but also vital data and personnel. Companies conduct physical security penetration testing to ensure their security measures are robust and to protect against potential threats.

By identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, companies can prevent costly breaches, ensuring their business continuity and reputation remain intact.

It was a pleasure working with the Equilibrium team - they were very understanding of our needs, worked very well with my team, and most importantly were very patient and understanding of the limitations of my team to provide the information required when needed due to other priorities.
