An Overview

Penetration testing, also called pen testing is a process of imitating a cyberattack that identifies security weaknesses in a network, computer system, or application. By using varied malicious tools and techniques, the weak points of a system are exploited by replicating a real scenario where hackers try to breach a business system. It is one of the most comprehensive and well-structured techniques that gives a complete analysis of security flaws.

The purpose of this testing is to discover points of exploitation and secure entry points from outsiders who can have unauthorized system access. With consistent penetration testing, companies can gain unbiased expert third-party feedback on their security processes and avoid extremely expensive and harmful breaches in the future.
