A penetration test, or pen test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. It is useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies. They are carried out employing the same techniques as an attacker located outside your infrastructure and verify (without revealing too much information on your environment)
- If servers or applications will withstand attack?
- If the identified vulnerabilities can lead to further intrusion and exploitation?
Intrusion tests enables to understand your current security architecture, and provide you with recommendations on how to improve your defense against technological vulnerabilities that can lead to intrusions, fraud and service interruptions.
