Penetration Testing

How Secure is Your Business?

See how penetration testing could help your business.

Get Started

Purpose of Penetration Testing

Unlike a vulnerability assessment, penetration testing actually tests the security of systems in the face of a cyberattack. The idea is to try to exploit any vulnerabilities. It’s also a way to uncover weaknesses and determine how well current security measures work.

Penetration tests work through every layer of your IT infrastructure from applications to user behavior to discover potential issues. They’re often used in conjunction with vulnerability assessments to test the strength of new security measures.

Performing Penetration Testing

Penetration testing can be manual or automated. Manual testing is often used when a specific vulnerability is suspected or when testing certain areas of your infrastructure. Automated testing is typically used when trying to compromise all elements of a system.
If an exploit is successful, testers will continue to see how far they can get and how much information they can access before a business’s security protocols stop them. Tests occur on:

Servers

Mobile and desktop devices

Network devices

Endpoints

Apps

Data storage

Anything that’s connected to your network and business is included.

How Often Should You Test?

Businesses should consider doing penetration testing on a set schedule to test for new vulnerabilities and after any of these scenarios:

New infrastructure elements

Any new business locations

Upgrades, updates and security patches

Any user policy modifications
