What Is A Penetration Test?
Penetration testing AKA pen-testing or pen test is a process where a tester looks for exploitable vulnerabilities from within an IT infrastructure that may allow the tester to subvert, modify and extract information.
Attacker’s objective is to identify entry points accessing your data; these entry points can have vulnerabilities in one or more systems that may include Operation System, Firewalls, Web servers, web applications, services and other devices.
External Penetration Testing will simulate an attacker targeting Internet facing systems that are connected to internal resources such as database extracting data or installing back-doors for a later use, in most cases that attacker would do both.
Internal Penetration Testing will simulate an attacker that has a foot hold in the internal perimeter.
