Penetration testing is a unique approach to solving network security problems. Without a security assessment such as this or a security audit it is impossible to implement adequate security measures.
Research shows that organisations that spend the most on security are those whose systems have already suffered a serious breach. This reactionary approach is taken by most businesses, especially SMEs, and can prove to be a costly and timely mistake. Disgruntled employees, irritated customers and competing organizations can all do irreparable damage to your business critical systems.
Both internal and external network access pose potential security risks to your network. However, the implementation of IDS and firewalls may not protect you from both forms of attack - this is why we believe that the best approach to network security is to begin with both black box and white box penetration testing.
Steps involved in Penetration Testing
A penetration test is divided into four stages which involve the ethical hacker simulating all known techniques used in real life situations to gain unauthorised access to a target system.
