What is penetration test?

With Dhound you can find balance between web security and transparent business

When it comes to security, at Dhound we take it seriously.

We conduct Penetration testing (also known as pen test or ethical hacking) so you can breathe out and be confident your system in safe hands.

Pen test is an imitation of a real hacking attack but performed by security knights who fight for your web security with noble intentions.

Unlike vulnerability assessement, ethical hacking at Dhound not just seeks for vulnerabilities. It would be too easy for us.

We aim to find out security breaches in your web system before true enemies attempt to exploit sensitive data.

To stay ahead of adversaries, we apply hacker’s mindset and techniques but no worry! Unlike real intruders, we never make an attempt upon your data.

Depending on a web system specifics, we recommend our clients an annual pen test session or even oftener if a business cooperates with sensitive data on a regular basis.

More than a half of Internet traffic goes from mobile devices.

We adjust to a rapidly increasing numbers and provide mobile pentesting with a fine sense of expertise.

Why do you need Dhound security assessment?

Your clients claims partnership only with reliable and secure solutions, and you keep your promises, guaranteeing your business transparency

You work under security regulations stated by the law to take certain security measures (i.e. SOC2, ISO 27001 (27002), HIPAA, PCI DSS, etc.)

You assess your risks, value storaged data and care about your system defensive abilities

How we do it?

At our team, we like to keep it right. That’s why penetration testing is conducted by people who are experts in their zone. They have little-to-no information about how clients deal with security and what methods do they use. This approach in combination with manual penetration testing ensures the most high fidelity results and wide coverage of threats that automated tests fail to identify.


At the first step, we want to know your better! Or would rather to say, your business and our test target system.

Together we define test goals, approach and scale so that our team of experts can get on the inside of your system where even hackers fail to reach.


The second stage assumes our testers will exploit the vulnerable spots to see if they can cause damage.

We dig deep, conducting manual pen tests through massive attacks at your system to search for vulnerabilities, intrusion attempts and identify protection flaws.


We work until we nail it to deliver results that will be insightful for you and help protect your business.

We report to you on our findings with detailed description and professional recommendations how to patch security holes.

We keep in mind not all of our clients are tech savvy geeks. We find ways to deliver test insights in a manner both executive and tech departments could get value.

We enjoyed working with Denis. He’s a true professional. The collaboration gave us a lot including a system audit and PHP vulnerability check-up. Dhound also helped us with management issues. For example, now we have regular security checklist sessions and manage our risks.

Happy with the service and the report, it was great and from my understanding we've already taken action on some of the previously dismissed items you shed the light on. All staff I have dealt with were very helpful.
