The Ultimate Network Defense Test
What is a Penetration Test?
A penetration test is a cybersecurity assessment process that evaluates a computer system, network, or IT infrastructure’s security by simulating a persistent hacking attempt. The aim of a penetration test is to identify weaknesses, vulnerabilities or entry points a hacker could use to force entry to a digital system.
What Differentiates a Penetration Test from a Vulnerability Scan?
A vulnerability scan’s purpose is to determine whether known vulnerabilities are present in a system or network. A penetration test on the other hand is a dynamic process whereby a cybersecurity professional uses ingenuity and experience to simulate a forced entry into a digital system.
Does Penetration Testing Only Evaluate Technical Security Controls?
No, penetration testing can also expose flaws and weaknesses in policy and procedural security measures. Privileged access management practices, Secure password policies and data classification and handling policies are just a few of the many organisational security controls that come under close scrutiny during penetration tests.
What Security Weaknesses Do Penetration Tests Seek to Detect?
The goal of a penetration test is to provide a comprehensive assessment of a system or network’s overall security posture. A penetration test could highlight software and operating system vulnerabilities, network vulnerabilities and much more.
