Why Penetration Testing in Malaysia?

A recent study by Star Online found that cybersecurity cases in Malaysia have risen a whopping 82.5% during the Movement Control Order (MCO), when compared to the same time of last year. According to the findings, a total of 838 incidents were reported in less than a month from the various areas in Malaysia, including, Kuala Lumpur, Seberang Perai, George Town, Ipoh, Shah Alam, and Melaka.

What is meant by penetration testing?

To summarize, penetration testing aims at finding vulnerabilities, malicious content, and flaws in a network. This is done to strengthen the organization’s security systemand defend the IT infrastructure.

With this in mind, a penetration test is an official procedure that can be deemed helpful and not a harmful attempt. While it is helps improve cybersecurity strategies, penetration testing is only affective when performed regularly. During this process, malicious content is built by a penetration tester to discover weak points in the applications, systems or programs and keep emerging and spreading in the network. A regular penetration test may not sort out all security concerns, but it significantly minimizes the probability of a successful attack.

What is a vulnerability assessment and penetration testing?

At the same time, a vulnerability assessment is the process of systemically reviewing security weaknesses by recognizing, analyzing, and prioritizing vulnerabilities existing in systems or IT equipment. This is done to trace prevailing threats in the environment and recommend remediation and mitigation methods. With the appropriate information on hand, risk factors can be competently defined without any delay. There are different types of vulnerability assessments, such as

  1. Host assessment
  2. Network assessment
  3. Application assessment
  4. Database assessment

What are the different types of penetration


There are different types of penetration testing services. These services differ based on organization requirements and the penetration testing company. In short, there are two types of penetration tests – Internal and External Penetration Testing.

Internal Penetration Testing External Penetration Testing
An internal penetration test is conducted by gaining access to sensitive information on the network from within the organization’s systems and firewalls. An external penetration test Is conducted by intruding from outside the organization’s firewallto protect the organization from external attackers.

These are further categorized into other types of penetration testing

Red teamingIntelligence-ledMobile penetration testingWeb application testingCloud penetration testingIoT penetration testing Social engineering

Red teaming

A red team conducts testing back doors to simulates different scenarios of testing. It includes social engineering, physical security testing, hacking, malware insertion, pivoting, and more.


The purpose of intelligence-led penetration testing is to assess and provide insight to an entities’ resilience capabilities against a real-world simulated cyber incident intelligence

Mobile penetration testing

The process involves testing of design, data handling, authentication, and network communication.

Web application testing

Web app testing goes through various stages of enumeration, vulnerability exploitation, and identifying risks to your networks.

Cloud penetration testing

It assesses the security of your cloud storage concerning its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), or Platform as a Service (PaaS).

IoT penetration testing

The number of IoT devices to the network is tested and protected. 

Social engineering

Although this attack thrives on human error and is unrelated to technology, it helps increase the security posture and reduce insider threats

How is penetration testing done?

Although different cybersecurity services follow different methods to conduct a penetration test, all of them more or less come down to the same three phases:

  • Phase 1: Pre-attack Phase – Research (Information Gathering)
  • Phase 2: Attack Phase – Targeting/Exploiting
  • Phase 3: Post-Attack Phase – Documenting and Reporting

How often should a penetration test be done?

“There are many steps you can take to improve your security posture, but something that’s often overlooked is the need to properly and regularly test the defenses that you’ve built.” – Forbes

The frequency of a penetration test depends on the following:

Size of the company

Compliance with regulatory laws


There is no doubt that companies that deal with an online business is prone to frequent cyberattacks At the same time, regulations, laws, and compliance mostly define the frequency of a pen test. Depending on the type of industry, one must comply with the rules. The penetration tester must have access to all platforms to conduct the penetration test.

How much does it cost for penetration testing?

Like other cybersecurity services, the cost of penetration testing in Singapore varies with few variables –

  • The skill of a penetration tester which varies with the certification and experience.
  • The size and complexity of the IT landscape and network devices..
  • The type of methodology used as different methodologies calls for a different set of techniques and tools.
  • The type of penetration testing required – remote or onsite.

What is the best penetration testing tool?

While there is no set penetration testing tool to perform the test, many tools are combined to make sure that the penetration test is conducted successfully.This means that the penetration tester uses a combination of tools such as:

  1. NMap (or the Network Mapper)
  2. Wireshark
  3. Metasploit
  4. Nessus Vulnerability Scanner

On the other hand, our experts use a variety of penetration testing tools, while conducting onsite or remote penetration testing in Malaysiasuch as – NMap, Wireshark, APKtool, Acunetix, Burp Suite, Drozer, Mobsf, Exploit kit, OWASP ZAP, Metasploit, etc.
