Ethical Hacking – The Need for Penetration Testing
Today’s increasingly sophisticated IT security attacks can take many forms and can have serious consequences. Businesses can be robbed of confidential information and intellectual property; military and national security operations can be compromised; and the systems that control critical infrastructure such as power grids, water treatment plants and telecommunications networks can be disrupted.
Intrusion or penetration tests simulate a real attack against your infrastructure in a controlled environment, allowing our certified consultants to evaluate your system’s capacity to prevent such an attack. 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 your servers or applications will resist hostile attacks, and
- if the identified vulnerabilities can lead to further intrusion and exploitation.
