A penetration test (pentest) is a software, infrastructure, and/or network attack on your organization by a skilled attack team that probes for security weaknesses and seeks to exploit them to reach your assets. Pentests should be performed in addition to vulnerability assessments. A vulnerability assessment identifies and logs vulnerabilities, ranks them, and recommends needed mitigation. A pentest not only identifies vulnerabilities, it uses those vulnerabilities to simulate attacks that a skilled and determined attacker could carry out on your organization once inside your network.

Pentests provide realistic insight into potential security gaps within your organizations networks, IoT devices, web and mobile applications. Proactively testing these environments would help identify and mitigate risks. Download the white paper to learn more.
