Penetration Testing


A penetration test, occasionally pentest, is a method of evaluating the security of a computer system or network by simulating an attack from malicious outsiders (who do not have an authorized means of accessing the organization's systems) and malicious insiders (who have some level of authorized access).

This is a highly technical industry and experienced pentesters, otherwise known as Ethical Hackers, are in short supply with high demand.  Proprius Recruitment provides pentesters to most if not all of the testing services providers from Boutique specialists through to blue chip consulting brands.  With an enviable and sizeable database of consultants, clients and contacts that has been cultivated over 10 years of dedicated hard work. We provide consultants with recognised industry accreditations such as Check and CREST - Check Team Leaders and CREST qualified individuals are highly sought after and tend to only work with trusted specialists such as Proprius.

Industry stats show that a tester with up to 2 years experience is earning up to / circa £35,000. However, with 2 to 4 years experience testers stats show that very technical and capable testers are earning anything up to £65,000 per annum. At the top end of the technical hands on spectrum for the really clever techies who can reverse engineer, code review and still have business facing abilities can potentially reach the lofty heights of circa £80,000.
