A Passage to Penetration Testing

January 3, 2019

What Is Penetration Testing? 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. These vulnerabilities may exist in network, applications, database, processes, services, operating systems, server, etc. These vulnerabilities may exist due to negligent acts by the end-user or improper configurations. Penetration testing is also valuable while defining the processes, verifying the end-user performance, and validating the effectiveness of defensive mechanisms.
