Penetration testing is the evaluation of a business’s security system by simulating an attack from an outside source. This assesses how strong the security of your systems and networks are to ensure they’re doing their job.
For businesses, penetration testing performs a complete scan of the entirety of your security system. With the results, businesses can determine what changes need to do be made, where to make them and how to avoid similar incidents in the future.
Without penetration tests, businesses are at risk of exposing private information – which, if found by a hacker, could cost thousands to get back.
