Network Penetration Testing
Identify exploitable vulnerabilities and verify that your infrastructure is resilient against the most advanced network level attacks.
Network penetration testing is used by organizations to evaluate the susceptibility of information systems to network attacks.
By identifying and actually exploiting the weaknesses found in networks, hosts,
and devices, penetration testing goes beyond simple vulnerability assessment.
Rather than providing a lengthy list of issues an organization may or may not choose to address,
network penetration testing helps enterprises grasp the real level of risk posed by specific vulnerabilities.
Presenting companies with a detailed vulnerability report and recommendations for improvement,
network penetration testing enables IT departments to validate existing security controls and meet security compliance requirements while allowing managers to better prioritize investment for remediation efforts.
Although network penetration testing is one way of proactively determining actionable items for improving an organization's security posture,
it is not an exact science. The results of a penetration test may vary depending on its scope and time frame as well as the abilities of individual testers.
Penetration testers will not have access to the same resources criminal hackers do—be it time, cohorts or attack tools.
Moreover, penetration testing is costly and when poorly implemented, may result in network congestion, server outages,
and system instability.
