Safely Simulate Attacks on Your Network to Uncover Security Gaps
Penetration testing is the practice of attacking your own IT systems, just as an attacker would, in order to uncover active security gaps on your network. Penetration testing is conducted in a way that allows you to safely simulate these attacks, so you can uncover your organization’s actual exposures – whether within technologies, people, or processes – without taking down your network. A pen testing solution or program is a must have in any security program, providing you with a virtual map of your exposures and where to direct your resources.
The goal of penetration testing shouldn’t simply be for compliance. Although it’s a requirement for PCI and HIPAA, the goal of penetration testing should be to simulate what an attacker would be able to do on your network, live, in the real world. Yet without a deep understanding of programing languages and exploit writing, it can be difficult to simulate a real attack efficiently. In order to practically see through the eyes of an attacker, you have to use a penetration testing tool that automates tactics that normally take days or weeks, so you can simulate them in the hours and minutes you have.
