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. 

Validate Vulnerabilities You Face

The cost of the data breach could be immeasurable—not only in downtime and recovery, but in impact to your company’s reputation. By identifying risks and attempting to exploit them, we can both validate the risks you face and determine how dangerous they really are.

Prioritize Security Risks

You don't have time to address every single risk, and not every security vulnerability is likely to be exploited. We provide you with a detailed report that explains the identified risks and their impact so you can focus on the most effective remediation efforts. 

Check the Compliance Box

With the expansion of PCI DDS, annual IBM i penetration testing isn’t just nice to have—it’s mandatory for any environment with cardholder data and all systems and networks connected to that environment. Our experts will help you meet auditor requirements so you can avoid fines and demonstrate ongoing compliance.
