A penetration test or ‘pen test’ is the process of evaluating the security infrastructure within a controlled environment to safely attack, identify, penetrate and exploit vulnerabilities.

Penetration testing is also valuable while defining the processes, verifying the end-user performance, and validating the effectiveness of defensive mechanisms.
