Penetration Testing - Knowledge Is Power: Preparing Your Enterprise to Withstand Attack
An enterprise IT environment can never be completely secure, but by taking prudent steps to minimize the vulnerabilities, one can greatly enhance the security posture. By having a confidential, independent assessment of the IT environment, one can provide a higher level of security against inevitable attacks and help prioritize the finite IT resources. Securing the corporate IT resources requires due diligence and determining the level of exposure of the IT assets is not a trivial exercise. It requires an iterative security methodology that includes vulnerability assessments combined with penetration testing. Penetration testing is a method of probing and identifying security vulnerabilities in the network and pinpointing where the IT environment can be exploited by a hacker.
