Network Security testing via Penetration Testing
Pen Testing is a process of extensively scanning a network for the vulnerabilities and further exploiting them. With a surge in cybercrimes and its devastating effect on an organization’s reputation, most of the companies and establishments are opting for periodic testing of their network.
Since the life cycle of the software or hardware products are very less these days, the networks are more viable to attacks, if they do not opt for regular updates and maintenance of their network. Penetration Testing is thus seen more as an associated task for an organization rather than a mere one-time assessment. Realizing the importance of network security, most of the companies are investing on IT Security training for the employees on a broader scale.
