Penetration Testing Types
There is the old saying that prevention is better than cure. This applies to every aspect of life, both human and technological. Penetration Testing (or Pentest) is a preventive solution to technology's greatest foe – cyber-attacks. But unlike other security protocols, pentest combats the threat by thinking and acting as a threat itself.It is a simulation of a real-life cyber-attack aimed at fishing out vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and other possible targets through which hackers gain access to the system. The test results are then used to remedy the flaws in the website network or application system, by fine-tuning, and strengthening the security protocols in place.
