Penetration Testing

Security Assessment for Network Environment

Your IT team ensure you that your corporate network is securely protected — what is in reality though? Do the security system protect your corporate network in practice as good as in the theory? Do you realize if you risk from financial looses, customer dissatisfaction or goodwill damages due to cyber attack? Which vulnerabilities might be there and how to protect them or to minimize the risks?

Penetration Testing often called Pentest, Pentesting or security testing is known as a proactive and authorized attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely attempting to exploit system vulnerabilities, i.e. OS, service and application flaws, improper configurations and even risky end-user behavior.

Such assessments are also useful in validating efficacy of defensive mechanisms and end-users’ adherence to security policies. It is done without actually harming the network and requires permission from the person who owns the system, otherwise it would be considered illegal.

Pentest is the practice of attacking IT systems in order to identify vulnerability or security holes in a piece of software, hardware or operating system that provides a potential angle to attack the system. A vulnerability can be as simple as weak passwords or as complex as buffer overflows or SQL injection vulnerabilities.
