Our approach & methodology

In today's digital landscape, comprehensive cyber security measures are no longer a luxury but a necessity.
Starknex offers a robust penetration testing methodology that ensures the integrity and safety of your organisations network and data. Here’s our approach:


Reconnaissance & Information Gathering

At this initial stage, we focus on collecting data vital for preparing a cyber security attack. Our team gathers insights into the targeted system to understand its potential vulnerabilities.


Threat Modelling & Planning

By designing various threat scenarios, we simulate attacks to test your system’s weaknesses. This crucial step in penetration testing helps us anticipate potential security issues.


Vulnerability Analysis

We identify and define the possible points of entry in your network. This analysis is central to our penetration testing methodology This critical analysis helps us uncover weak points in your organisations systems.



Our penetration testing moves towards attempting to gain access to sensitive data, mimicking the actions of malicious attackers. This step tests the efficacy of your security measures under controlled conditions.


Post Exploitation

After a successful exploitation, we evaluate the level of risk your business is exposed to due to the known weaknesses. This phase assesses the depth of potential damage in the event of a real-world cyber attack.



We provide a detailed report that not only outlines the findings of the engagement but also includes strategies to improve your security posture.



We offer remediation services to fix the vulnerabilities discovered during the penetration testing process. We work with your team to strengthen your defenses and prevent future security breaches.
Part of the remediation process also includes re-testing.
