Penetration testing, or pen testing, is the practice of testing or trying to hack a computer system, network, or web application to find security vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit. It simulates an attack from a malicious outsider or insider to identify weaknesses.

How do you ensure your Penetration Testing Services meet compliance with industry regulations and standards?

What is the point of Penetration Testing

Arrow Down

Cybersecurity often consists of implementing complex frameworks and practices across complex organizations. This security is often a baseline that addresses the majority of potential security issues. Penetration Tests help to identify and fix any remaining security vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers. Penetration tests are often used to provide the proof of concept.

What is the difference between a Vulnerability Assessment and a Penetration Test?

Arrow Down

Vulnerability assessment are often 100% automated and involve scanning for vulnerabilities. Penetration testing is a more aggressive approach that not only involves active hands on efforts to identify vulnerabilities but also attempts to exploit them to understand the real-world effectiveness of existing security measures.
