Penetration test is also known as a pen test, pentest or ethical hacking,
Pen testing is basically an authorised simulated cyber attack on an organisation computer system, performed to evaluate the security of the business.
The test is performed to identify both weaknesses (also referred to as vulnerabilities), including the potential for unauthorized parties to gain access to the system’s features and data.
Penetration tests are designed to go above and beyond a vulnerability assessment by performing a simulation of the same scenario a hacker would use to penetrate a network.
An experienced pen tester can mimic the techniques used by criminals while ensuring that no damage is caused. We can conduct these tests outside business hours or when min use of the network or web applications occurs minimising the impact on everyday operations.
