Penetration testing is part of Lupi’s cyber solutions. Our company utilizes the most advanced methods to increase cyber security.
When it comes to cyber security, penetration testing is a way to evaluate the possible vulnerabilities in networks, computer systems, applications, and websites, see if they can be exploited, and implement security controls. It’s a proactive cyber security method to test security robustness and whether or not unauthorized access can be identified and defeated. So, how we would define penetration testing? Let’s see.
Penetration testing can be described as an intentional simulation of a cyberattack for the identification and assessment of a network’s or a computer system’s weaknesses. It’s hacking with good intentions so that real cyber attacks will be avoided. For this reason, penetration testing is also known as ethical hacking. It also goes as pen testing, security testing, and security pen testing.
Penetration testing goes beyond assessing vulnerabilities. The penetration testers check if the system’s weaknesses can be exploited so that improved remediation methods can be implemented for further cyber security.
To ensure the pen test’s success, Lupi talks with you about your organization’s goals and sets the parameters of the penetration testing. After all, the objectives of each organization vary. Plus, we need to know how many people within your organization will be aware of the pen test, how much information we will have, the access limitations, and similar details. And so, we can define that the first stage of penetration testing is planning and gathering intelligence.
The next steps?
The methods to pen test?
The simulated cyberattack – always performed by professional and experienced penetration testers, is meant to identify vulnerabilities – and do something about them, before hackers do. Hence, your company becomes aware of the weaknesses so it can be prepared to respond to potential threats or even prevent them. What Lupi does for you is pen testing to inform you about the possible vulnerabilities in your applications, networks, endpoints, et cetera, and evaluate your preparedness to respond and prevent attacks that attempt to circumvent security controls to gain access to protected data, information, financials, et cetera. We mimic a real cyberattack to protect your assets.
Since penetration testing is done to assess vulnerabilities so that your company will better armor its cyber defense, regular testing is recommended. Don’t you want to be sure that the system you believe is secure is indeed secure? To also have knowledge of possible weaknesses to close the security loopholes?
Pen testing also becomes important when new applications are added, upgrades are done, or end-user policies change. But let’s not be generic. Since each organization has its own cyber security needs, let’s talk about yours and set the goals of your company with effective penetration testing solutions. Lupi is at your service.
