Penetration Testing

Leverage IBM i penetration testing to test your security defenses and highlights the danger of security vulnerabilities. 

Discover Your Vulnerabilities Before a Hacker Does


The only way to truly validate system vulnerabilities is to try to exploit them. Security penetration testing, commonly known as ethical hacking, is a critical step organizations should take to ensure their data security.  

Once you've identified existing security vulnerabilities through a Risk Assessment, Fortra can perform Penetration Testing to determine whether the risks identified pose a real threat to data. Our expert security team relies on commercial-grade software tools to assess your system. We have the experience to ensure security penetration testing on IBM i is done right and can provide an unbiased assessment of your security to help guide you towards remediation.

Protect Business-Critical Data

IBM i is a securable platform, but if you're not using your security features to their full extent, you're leaving the door open for anyone—from unauthorized users to cybercriminals—to access your business data.  Penetration Testing is a necessary step in knowing the risks you face and taking action to mitigate them. 

What Does IBM i Penetration Testing Involve?

Vulnerability Identification
