Network Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking

What is Network Penetration Testing?

Network Penetration Testing is also known as “Ethical Hacking”. It can be referred to as professional hacking where hackers recognize and exploit or probe into the weaknesses of your network or system.

Network Penetration Testing or Pen Tests are done in the form of a deliberate cyber-attack against your computer system or network by professionals. These tests give way to recommendations for fixing the possible loopholes hackers can exploit in breaching the security of the business.

It is done for safety purposes because it can be used to check the security policies employed by a business, how aware and compliant the internal customers (employer and employees) are applying these policies, and how quickly and efficiently an organization can recognize and respond to security occurrences.

WHY A PROFESSIONAL IS IMPORTANT FOR ETHICAL HACKING:

An ethical hacker is precisely trained and equipped with the necessary skill to perform pen tests and other system assessments. Inadequate or no network penetration testing could be harmful to your business and business operations.

Importance of Network Penetration Testing: 

  • DATA BREACH PREVENTION

A proper network penetration test keeps your business on top and helps avoid possible security risks in your network. This test is a form of business continuity strategy which gets your business ready in case of unpleasant eventualities.

  • APPLICATION SECURITY

In a bid to better serve your customers, there is a need to improve your business applications.  Performing security assessments before launching these new applications is important. This is because the applications are to handle sensitive data and these assessments will help prevent the malfunctioning of the app or the exposure of sensitive data to risks. The security of these apps makes investing in network penetration testing worthwhile.

  • SECURITY CONTROL TESTING

Network security professionals are well trained in firewalls, encryption procedures, data-loss prevention, layered security processes and so on. Their knowledge results in the effectiveness of the network security controls.

  • GAP ANALYSIS MAINTENANCE

Network Penetration Testing is meant to be a continuous process and it identifies how well your security model is functioning. It also helps your business to create awareness of any gaps in the security model that may occur at any time.

  • COMPLIANCE

A network security professional guarantees that your system complies with the set standards and requirements for your business’s security model. It also eliminates the possibility of facing sanctions that can be in the form of paying some penalties attached to non-compliance.
