The Value of a Pentest

Jan 16, 2020 1:56:26 PM

Businesses and organizations always seem to be a few steps behind adversaries; that is the natural consequence of asymmetric threats. True Penetration testing will make you a fierce competitor, enabling organizations to understand your weaknesses and see your gaps – allowing you to monitor, remediate and defend them.

Penetration testing (or Pentesting) refers to a simulated cyber-attack that can detect vulnerabilities and gaps within system security. A Pentest is a collaborative process that can be scheduled.

Modern adversaries have substantial resources and the element of surprise, which is why regularly scheduled Pentests are so critical. With insight garnered from a Pentest assessment, organizations and businesses can implement changes and policies that will reduce the amount of time to detect and respond to an incident.

The overall goal of any organization, specific to its security footprint, is to minimize attack vectors. Further ensuring the level of effort to access the network is higher than the perceived value of the data; ultimately pushing the adversary to pursue softer targets.

There are varying reasons why an organization will schedule a Pentest to include:

  • Compliance or audit mandate
  • Routine component of risk management
  • After the implementation of new software or systems
  • After recovering from a security incident
  • After any major change that affects the security of applications, processes, networks or systems
