Pen test (Penetration testing) :

Penetration testing, also called pen testing or ethical hacking, is the practice of testing a computer system, network or web application to find security vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit. Penetration testing can be automated with software applications or performed manually. Either way, the process involves gathering information about the target before the test, identifying possible entry points, attempting to break in  either virtually or for real  and reporting back the findings.

Purpose of penetration testing :

Intelligently manage security weaknesses

Penetration tests provide detailed information on actual, exploitable security threats. By performing a penetration test, you can proactively identify which security weaknesses are most critical, which are less significant, and which are false positives helping you prioritize resources and response.

Avoid the cost of downtime

Recovering from a security breach can cost an organization millions of dollars in IT remediation efforts, customer protection and retention programs, and legal activities. Penetration tests help you discover and remediate potential risks before they lead to a security compromise. 

Meet regulatory requirements

Penetration testing tools help organizations address the general auditing & compliance aspects of regulations. The detailed reports penetration tests generate can help your organization avoid significant fines and help you document ongoing due diligence through maintaining required security controls.

Preserve corporate image and customer loyalty

Each incident of compromised customer data can be costlynegatively affecting sales and tarnishing an organization’s public image. Penetration testing helps you prevent data incidents that put your organization’s reputation and trustworthiness at stake.

How often you should perform penetration testing ?

Organizations should perform pen testing regularly — ideally, once a year — to ensure more consistent network security and IT management. In addition to conducting regulatory-mandated analysis and assessments, penetration tests may also be run whenever an organization:

  • adds new network infrastructure or applications;
  • makes significant upgrades or modifications to its applications or infrastructure;
  • establishes offices in new locations;
  • applies security patches; or
  • modifies end-user policies.

However, because penetration testing is not one-size-fits-all, when a company should engage in pen testing also depends on several other factors, including:

  • The size of the company. Companies with a larger presence online have more attack vectors and, therefore, are more-attractive targets for hackers.
  • Penetration tests can be costly, so a company with a smaller budget might not be able to conduct them annually. An organization with a smaller budget might only be able to conduct a penetration test once every two years while a company with a larger budget can do penetration testing once a year.
  • Regulations and compliance. Organizations in certain industries are required by law to perform certain security tasks, including pen testing.
  • A company whose infrastructure is in the cloud might not be allowed to test the cloud provider’s infrastructure. However, the provider may be conducting pen tests itself.

Penetration testing efforts should be tailored to the individual organization as well as the industry it operates in and should include follow-up and evaluation tasks so that the vulnerabilities found in the latest pen test are note reported in following tests.
