What is penetration testing? It seems like every day dawns with a new headline regarding the latest cybersecurity attack. Hackers continue to steal millions of records and billions of dollars at an alarming frequency. The key to combating their efforts is to conduct thorough penetration tests throughout the year. Penetration testing is designed to assess your security before an attacker does. Penetration testing tools simulate real-world attack scenarios to discover and exploit security gaps that could lead to stolen records, compromised credentials, intellectual property, personally identifiable information (PII), cardholder data, personal, protected health information, data ransom, or other harmful business outcomes. By exploiting security vulnerabilities, penetration testing helps you determine how to best mitigate and protect your vital business data from future cybersecurity attacks.
