Network Penetration Test and Vulnerability Assessment

Network Penetration Test and Vulnerability Assessment


Prepared by

Gireesh Ramamurthy

Penetration testing is an authorized security evaluation of a network or computer by actively probing the system and exploiting any found vulnerabilities.

Penetration testing, also known as security assessment, is used to validate the security of a network. A thorough test of perimeter defences and access policies provides a level of practical assurance showing that an organization is doing things right and guidance in the areas where it needs improvement. It is a way to defend an organization’s information assets by preventing financial loss and demonstrating due diligence.  This tool provides a vital weapon in your arsenal to protect and safeguard your company’s well-being and bring peace of mind to the hectic world that is IT.
