Cyber-attacks on organizations assets because of existence of weaknesses and vulnerabilities, is possible. If the attackers before you are aware of such vulnerabilities, the consequences of which may happens to your organization would be irreparable.
Have you ever assessed your organization’s assets for the presence of vulnerabilities? If yes, the survey was conducted by qualified professionals and professionally?
A penetration test, colloquially known as a pen test, is an authorized simulated attack on a computer system, performed to evaluate the security of the system. The test is performed to identify both weaknesses, including the potential for unauthorized parties to gain access to the system’s features and data, as well as strengths, enabling a full risk assessment to be completed. The process typically identifies the target systems and a particular goal. There are different goals for organizations to do this test, most of which are:
- Identifying Asset Risks
- Assessing the Effectiveness of the Information Security implementation
- Improving business continuity
Penetration tests are typically performed using manual or automated technologies to systematically compromise servers, endpoints, web applications, wireless networks, network devices, mobile devices and other potential points of exposure even human resource. Once vulnerabilities have been successfully exploited on a particular system, testers may attempt to use the compromised system to launch subsequent exploits at other internal resources.
