Penetration Testing

Never automated. Always proactive. Rigorous reporting. Individual engagement. Actionable results.

Hackers have a simple checklist


Find A Weakness


Exploit That Weakness


Cash in on the weakness

Get Inside the Mind of Your Attackers

13 Layers security experts don’t simulate the tactics, techniques and procedures of real-world attackers targeting your high-risk cyber assets, we become the attackers. Every penetration test we perform is unique to the network and environment we are attacking.

What To Expect

Once we get the greenlight from you, we become the attackers. We leverage 80+ tools, scripts, and processes to conduct active exploits of vulnerabilities within your network. Using the most up-to-date attack techniques, we will be able to tell if your IT assets, data, personnel, and/or physical security can be compromised.

We will not disrupt your business in the process, but we will show you how others can, and provide recommendations on how to stop them.

Penetration Testing Process

  1. PLANNING: Gathering information, customer goals are engaged, and information is provided to the organization.
  2. RECONNAISSANCE: Identifying additional information that may have been overlooked, unknown or not provided.
  3. SCANNING: Perform scanning and enumeration to identify potential vulnerabilities, risk areas and exploits.
  4. ATTACK: After confirming the vulnerabilities through the exploitation phase and performing additional attempts to steal data, intercepting traffic, and escalating privileges to understand the damage a hacker can cause.
  5. REPORTING: Document all found vulnerabilities, exploits, failed attempts, company strengths and weaknesses.

Managed Cybersecurity Testimonials


We called him (Justin) from our car and he answered right away. He put a team together after an hour and a half. The task force from 13 Layers were on top of it and they took care of us before we even had the time to speak about money. The way they approached the [process], I was sure that it would cost us much more than that…. We were able to come back to normal operations within a couple of days, and the way they handled it was amazing. It’s rare to see anybody be able to react almost immediately. We hadn’t even taken care of any money or signed anything yet, and I came in the next morning and these guys from Kentucky were already going! The box was here within 48 hours. We were able to come back to normal operations within a couple of days, and the way they handled it was amazing.   Full Video Review Here

Our company was cyber-attacked with a very sophisticated Banking Trojan Virus.  The virus attempted to gain access to our servers through our individual PC’s.  Once deployed, it was a battle for 120 straight hours to protect our data.  FINALLY,  one of our staff members pulled me aside and his exact words, “this will require a level of expertise that will far exceed 98% of the industry people you will find to rectify this issue, but I know a company in that 2% and they called 13 Layers.” Immediately, I made the call to 13 Layers at 10:00 pm at night. Within the hour, the 13 Layers team were remotely logged in working on the issue.  Within 4 hours, our main threat had been limited. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to know why. I immediately hired 13 Layers. The industry knowledge, accessibility, detailed reports, and thorough explanation put my mind at ease.  I truly owe a lot more than just the bill I received from 13 Layers.
